Question about D-Link GamerLounge DGL-4300 Router (DGL4300)
Power light stays on. Problems start as soon as I plug the cable from my dsl modem to the WAN. This is what happens after I plug the ethernet cable in:
WAN and wireless lights light up. After 20 seconds, WAN and wireless turn off and 1-4 light up and turn off. Then WAN and wireless light up again and the cycle continues. The internet connection drops from my computer every time the router resets.
This happens whether or not I have anything plugged into 1-4.
When I plug the ethernet cable directly from the cable modem to my computer, the internet works with no problems.
Initially, I thought the router was bad; and so did D-Link. So I bought a new one and it's having the same issues. I took my router to my friend's apt in the same building and hooked it up to her DSL modem and it works with no problems! So it seems like the issue isn't really with the router.
I'm confused...is there something I can do, or is the line inside my apt messed up?
I have Verizon DSL.
Try the following:
1. Hook up your router like you want it to be
2. After the WAN/Wireless lights turn off we want to HARDRESET your router.
3. There will be a small hole that requires a pen or paper clip to press...Hold this down for about 15 seconds, or untill the power light flashes on your router.
This might take care of it.
let me know.
