D-Link DIR615 power light doesn't come on when plugged in

My wife's uncle gave me a D-Link DIR615 router and without the power cable and foolishly enough I went out and bought one on the net for $18.00 thinking I'd save a bit on the router. I should just have bought it new for $39.99 but when I plug it in none of the LED lights display, most importantly the power light. Does this definitely mean the router is garbage? Is all I can do trash it? Please any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    The input of the router is 5V,3A and the supply output I got which specified it's specifically for this router is 5V,1A. Does that mean anything?

    It depends on how well you can read. What was the output of the 5v power supply you bought for $18?



    If you bought the wrong one, yes, it looks like you turned a $40 router into a $58 one.

You must have checked in the first place the voltage input of the router. Some router use 12V and others use 9V. Now if you have supplied an incorrect voltage input, you might fry the router's main board. Double check the voltage input of the router first vs. the adapter's output. If they are on the same voltage, your router is dead already

Quick, what's the difference between 1A and 3A?

No, you didn't fry the unit, you just don't have enough power.

I keep getting kicked off


Try changing your wireless channel to 1 or 11 to see if that resolves the problem. You can access the router page if you need help logging into your router.

If that doesn't work, I think calling them is the correct course of action. number is 1-800-255-3700. they are open from 6a to 7p PST, seven days a week.

I mistakenly plugged in 9V power to my D-Link DIR615 router?


Most likely you have damaged the D-Link router.
Connect a correct power adapter to the D-Link to see if it works properly, if it doesn't work then you need to purchasr a new wireless router.

How can i setup my router


Thank you for using FixYa

Plug in the ethernet cable to the back of your computer and the other end into the modem. Turn the modem and router on.

Put the CD into the cd player and type in
D:\DIR615.exe
Click - Install router - and follow the instructions on the screen.

If the cd is not available type in 192.168.0.1 into your browser and put in the password "admin" then select - Setup Wizard

(Here is a link to your manual for more information.)
ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Gateway/dir615.../Manual/dir615_revC_manual_300.pdf

Since we do not know at this time if you have a cable modem or a DSL modem, or if you are Static or Dynamic or what protocol you are on, following the Wizard is your best bet. Further, you ISP should be able to hook you up if you contact them.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Just got a dir615 from virgin media. lan to pc not working


If the lan light does not light up, there is a problem with the connection between the pc and the router. Did you use the cable between your modem and your pc as the cable between your router and your pc? If so, it may be the wrong cable. With some modems the suppler sends a cross over cable. This will not work between your router and your pc. Get a straight through cable and try that.

If that does not work, we need more info to help you more.

1. What is the IP address set to on your PC. See the TCP/IP properties listed in your network connection properties in the control panel.

2. Does your PC work with the modem directly?

3. Does the cable you are using have a cross-over label on it?

4. Are you trying initially to connect to the router via a wireless connection? You should use a cable connection to set up the router, then try the wireless connection.

good luck, and if any of this solves your problem please leave feedback. Otherwise send more information.

Make sure your modem is plugged into your WAN port on your router and your computer is plugged into your LAN port on the router, then turn everything off (unplug what doesn't have a switch) then turn the modem on first and let all the lights come on on the modem, then turn the router on and let all the lights come on on it then turn the computer on. Don't turn the next item on until the previous item has all the lights on that are going to come on.
Good Luck
