    It looks like the orange light says M1 or M2 it is not power. The whole thing shuts down and then restarts ion it's own and then the orange light stays out.

    Bought a new router this weekend. What a difference! If anyone else has this problem, just buy a new one. They are cheap and much faster than those purchased just a few years ago!

Kmkm:
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!

    Are you using the power adapter that came with this router? If yes then the router should stay on. Seems like the router is crashing. Could you please let me know the numbers from your router and make please.

    Here is the website page where there exist two versions of this router: Install any firmwares according to your version. Since the router is starting again and again it seems like hardware is failing please contact there technical support, they are pretty good even in exchanging routers if they found your router is not working fine.

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.

N300 router has a steady orange blinking light


The blinking orange power light suggests that there is a problem with your modem. The modem should be plugged into the top ethernet port of your router. Try turning off your modem for 10 seconds and then turning it back on.

Orange globe keeps appearing on my dlink dir655 and it disconnects internet


First try replacing your LAN cable between you internet modem and the router. A bad cable the is intermittent may cause this issue. Try rebooting the modem. Also if possible try a direct connection to your internet modem by LAN cable or wireless and see if your connection stays up. You could have a bad internet modem or other connection issue from your provider

The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset.

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can ssets-up form scratch.

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 192.168.0.1 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
