Re: dLINK Router

Is this the WAN light you are talking about or the power light?
The WAN light blinks to show you connection with your client computers. Its ok.
If its the power light then un plug router completly and plug it back in check if does the same thing again? If yes then some hardware issue exist and the router needs to be replaced.
Hope that helped!

Reset my dlink dir 615 router and now internet light stays flashing orange

Do you have the Internet connected to the Internet port in the back of the DLINK? You will have to configure the DLINK for internet access. Open a web browser to your DLINK and check on the configuration under internet-setup. Select the type of internet connection you have i.e. DHCP, PPPoE, Static, etc. Once that is set up, you should have access to the internet like before.

Globe symbol won't turn green.

I was banging my head for 2 days with about 35 different configurations and finally tried the following and it worked just fine. Also, tried connecting 3 computers and they all connected with "NO" issues. Even connected wireless with "NO" issues. Now I am at 20mb download speed...J compared to AT&T 1.5mb download speed.

This is my DLINK model -> (DIR-601 Wireless N 150 Home Router Wireless router)

1. Reset your Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem by unplugging it for 5 minutes.

2. Then reset your DLINK Router to the manufactures default settings. Then Unplug DLINK Router for 1 minute then plug it back in (Just plug your cat5 cable into port 1 and connect it to your computer) there should not be anything else plugged into the DLINK Router at the time you make the changes. Just 1 computer can be connected.

3. Went into the DLINK configuration and changed the PPPOE setting that I was using for my AT&T Modem to Dynamic IP (DHCP). Once you make the changes save them and then unplug your DLINK Router it's off.

4. Turn on Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem and wait until all lights are on. Now plug in a cat5 cable from the Surfboard Comcast modem (NOT A CROSSOVER CABLE LIKE THE CD INDICATES) to the INTERNET port of your DLINK Router. Now turn on your DLINK router.

5. Then turn on your computers or restart them and it will pick up IP Addresses from your DLINK Router

After 3 x years my wireless router will not connect - the inernet light consantly flashes orange instead of a steady green colour

Your router may have gone faulty, try a "Reset" and if this doesn't work, then you will have to repair or replace.

My Dlink router lights just flash constantly and never stop, its the dlink logo and all four lan lines flash but the power light doesn't come on and niether does the internet symbol

Not a good sign. Have you tried resetting? You'll find a reset 'hole' on back of router. Press and hold with a pin for 15 seconds or until lights go out and come back on. Upon resetting, you will need to reconfigure. Disconnect sat/cable modem while doing this. Use the passcode and admin URL address on bottom/back of router to get to configuration. Should also power off modem and power back on when done configuring to reset the Internet connection.
Please re-post if you need help with configuring the router.

Press the reset button on the back of the router and hold for 10-15 seconds, this resets router to factory defaults. Access the router using the IP address of the router access the router setup and create your PPPOE internet connection provided by your ISP using your username and password connect to the router via the computer.
