Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

Notebook does not connect to LAN or wireless

After updating drivers on a D-Link DIR-615 Router in my home - and also updating a driver on my Gateway notebook (with built in wireless card Realtek RTL8185 54M) - the Gateway is not able to connect to either LAN or Wireless. Same notebook connects to both LAN and wireless in my office. Other notebooks connect to LAN and wireles at home OK. I tried to roll back the driver on Realtek, but it said not available. When I tried to install an older driver - it said the one being used is newer and will remain.

    I have changed the default wireless name - also tried restarting router - deleted wirelss connection - refreshed and re-entered the password.



    Nothing seems to work.



    Same notebook connects OK to bith LAN & wireless in the office.



    It is driving me nuts...:-)

    Yes I tried that quite a few times. Changed the name of d-link also.

    Same notebook works OK on both LAN & wireless in the office, so it should not be a problem.

    Other couple notebooks work on both LAN and wireless at home, so the d-link works OK.

    I am frustrated!

    Are you using wireless security? Sometimes you have to re-enter the wireless security key or passphrase after you update a driver.

The dlinks have a tendency to reset to factory settings when you do a firmware upgrade. Connect to the router using a wired connection or using another computer, confirm the settings are what you want, not the defaults. NEVER use the default wireless name (in this case: dlink), always change it to something nobody around you is using!

FIRMWIRE FOR DIR-615 REV M2


Usually you can login on your browser to you router and go to the management section to check for firmware updates and select that button and it will download and install the firmware. On some models, you have to go to the D-link web site and look for firmware updates for your router. Always check what you current firmware you have installed and check the version of your router modem hardware (A, B, C etc). Then you can manually download the firmware (usually in a ZIP file), open the zip file, and then using your browser connected to the router look for Update Firmware. You will have to go to where (folder) you saved the downloaded update and select that file. It is recommended that you update using a LAN connection and not a wireless connection.

No wifi and lan light


Sometimes, you may just need to update the drivers for your adapter, suggests PC Mech. If you cannot connect to a home network, move your wireless usb wifi adapter closer to the router. Other radio frequencies, such as cellphones and microwaves, can interfere with wireless signals.

Is there an update for this wireless router? I purchased it last March. I am having trouble with my Ipad and the Apple technician wants me to make sure I have the latest driver.


Check the D-Link.com website for the latest firmware updates and driver updates for your Apple computer.

I've found that D-link offers frequent updates to the firmware, for instance, which may affect the performance of the router with your Apple product.

Good luck on updating your D-link DIR-615.

D-Link DIR-615 seems to break very easily


i dont think your router has gone bad...

try these simple steps...

connect your computer to one of the LAN(wired) ports of router...
check the ip address and default gateway of your local area connection through control panel > network connections.... if you get the ip adress in the range of dlink router then try going to start > run > type "cmd" and hit enter >command prompt will appear... in command prompt type this


ping (default gateway address) and hit enter...if you get successful replies then your router is not gone bad...

I have a dir-615 router and have been able to establish a wireless network but cannot get the network to connect to the internet.what can I do?


I assume you have a cable or a DSL modem connectec by a LAN cable to the wireless router.
Have you checked you with your ISP to see if the connection yo your modem is OK?
Have you check the LAN cable from the modem to the wireless router is good and it in plugged into the WAN/Internet port on the wireless router?
Have you installed the latest wireless card driver in the computer/laptop?

For instructions on setting up the wireless router and the wireless card in the computer/laptop, please follow my instructions - click on this link :-
