When I used my first lynksys router on a new computer I had the same issue, what I had to do was move the computer right beside the router so it was able to setup an IP for the computer. Then when it has finished that stage you can power down and move it back. Also placement sometimes has an issue, if you have a basement where you house your router and are trying to get a wireless connection in the upstairs of the house its going to be alot harder. If this dosnt work feel free to ask me again for more solutions.

I have DI-604 in line between Windows Vista computer and cable modem. Works fine. Bought DIR-615 (wireless). Several places instructions say, ""Insert the DIR-615 CD into computer and click Install Router....


Contrary to the many warnings not to install the router before starting the installation with the CD, I got the installation to complete only AFTER I installed the router inline thusly:

1. Power everything off.
2. Remove DI-604.
2. Install and connect 615 router to computer and to modem.
3. Apply power to router and modem.
4. Apply power to computer and wait until Windows loads.
5. Insert 615 installation CD.
6. Follow the directions.

My router just stopped working. The internet


There can be several causes for this:

1. Check for power to the router which can be lost because of a loose DC plug or bad power brick.

2. Check the DSL or cable modem if it is working properly and can get you on line if directly plugged into your PC.

3. If any of the above are ok, then your router has just died. Routers have a high rate of failure so I won't be surprised if this was the case with yours.

Hardware failure


yes that is a hardware problem, your video card seems to be malfunctioning, if that is newly upgraded you need to install its driver in order to function correctly. and if the symptoms persist you need to install a new video card or try the on board video card

Loss of internet connection when going through router


Your laptop seems to be hooked to your neighbours unsecured network automatically and it is going online with that. About comcast, when you connect a router to the modem or a computer to the modem, the modem has to be rebooted to give a valid IP to the connected device. If the modem is not rebooted the computer or the router will get 192.168.x.x IP address which is called private IP address.

Setting up routers is best when done one step at a time.

Has anyone connected successfully directly to the internet service providers hardware using a wired connection, if possible?

Is the router connected through the internet service providers hardware or does it replace the internet service providers hardware?

Before dealing with the wireless has any computer connected successfully to the internet using a wired connection THROUGH THE LINKSYS ROUTER? They will not have to stay that way but a test without the wireless is less complicated.

When all the above is successful it is time to test the wireless, preferably first unencrypted for a short time and later probably encrypted in the final solution.

Does all the above sound like a reasonable step by step approach? If so let's continue --

First let me know how far we have successfully tested in the step by step tests by answering the above.

In planning for wireless access see this response and consider how much assistance you may require

See http://www.fixya.com/support/t301418-encryption_off

Then I will provide instructions to the level you require.

There are some skills you will need as we go along so here are some tests you can attempt

Perform the following steps on a wired and a wireless computer -- this will yield useful information and record the answer.

This assumes Windows XP (probably Win2000 and maybe Vista)

Click Start select all All Programs select Accessories and click on Command Prompt

In the open window type

ipconfig /all

Record the adapter, IPaddress, subnet mask, default gateway and DNS addresses for each adapter (there may be more than one and report them here for each machine.

then you will ping the default gateway address that probably starts with 192.168.?.? to do this in the open window type

Ping (default gateway)

It works when a line comes back with elapsed time generally in ms or milliseconds -- it fails when you recieve a timeout message these normally occur in a block of 4.

If you get stuck provide me the answers you have determined and tell me what went wrong and we will start again from there. OK?
