I have a D-Link DIR-615. For some strange reason it stopped broadcasting. Whenever I turn on my laptop, I cannot locate my network. I've checked all the configuration on the router and everything is the way it should be. I've called D-Link tech support to no avail. No one else seems to know the problem. I need help ASAP. Thanks

Step 1: Open your web browser and type in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1 by default).
Step 2: Enter the username (admin) and password
Step 3: Under Setup Select the Wireless tab
Step 4: On Wireless Tab - Select Invisible if you do not want the SSID of your wireless network to be broadcasted by the DIR-615. If Invisible is selected, the SSID of the DIR-615 will not be seen by Site Survey utilities so your wireless clients will have to know the SSID of your DIR-615 in order to connect to it.
One of the most common reasons for Internet connection problems is incorrect login information. When your computer locates the network put out by your D-Link wireless router, you will be required to enter login information if the network is secured. The DIR-615 model supports WPA and WPA2 security information; if you can't connect, ensure that you do not have WEP security selected on the network settings
LOSING WIRELESS CONNECTION Make sure the latestwireless card driver is installed in the computer.Locate the wireless routerhigher and away from concrete and brick walls, foil-insulated walls. Locate the wireless routeraway from cordless phones and microwave ovens these can cause interference.You could be gettinginterference from other wireless access points or wireless routers in yourarea. Check the wireless broadcast channels in your area, and select one thatis unused or one that has the weakest signal strength.
Ok this might be a bit tricky but it sounds like there is another wireless signal that may be interfering with yours.
Do you have an older cordless phone in the house? If so try and move the cordless base farther away from the wireless router. Even if they are on different floors in your house, if they are located near each other the cordless can interfere with the wireless signal.
The other possibility is that there is signal that is coming from the outside of your location and is causing the interference.
I know that when I had an XP Pro machine (Laptop) it would drop the wireless signal every couple of days or so. I traced my problem to my neighbors cordless phone. he had an old one and it was near the side of my house that my router was on and it was causing me problems so I move my router and the problem went away.
if youve changed the password on the router since the other computers logged onto the network, then you need to delete the network history from those computers. Otherwise those laptops will be trying to connect to the network with the old details.
