Question about D-Link GamerLounge DGL-4300 Router (DGL4300)

1 Answer

DGL-4300 resets every few seconds

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 there something I can do, or is the line inside my apt messed up?

I have Verizon DSL.

    By the way, this router used to work with the modem and everything. I had it for a few months with no problems until recently.

  • howiedoit Jan 10, 2008

    I had tried a hard reset before, but I tried it again.  After a couple of attempts, the autoresetting appeared to stop.  So I went ahead to set up my wireless password and things.  Once I finished this, the router had to reset in order to save the changes.  After it reset to save changes, the automatic resetting returned.  Same symptoms.  Again, I tried hard reset a few times, but it's not doing anything...symptoms continue.

    I appreciate your response.  If anyone else has any suggestions, I'd love to try it.  I just want to get this to work again.

    Today, I hooked up my friend's modem and her router to the plug in my wall...and her router did the same thing that mine was doing! It was doing this resetting thing.

    So it seems like the modem and the router aren't the problem. I have the problem whether I'm using my friend's router/modem or my own router/modem.

    Could there be a problem coming from before the modem, even though I can connect to the internet if I plug the modem to my computer?

  • howiedoit Jan 11, 2008

    I just noticed that when I turn off the wireless on my router, the problem doesn't come back...but now I don't have wireless :(

  • howiedoit Jan 11, 2008

    Yeah, all this is very confusing to me. I don't know what is happening.

    But as far as hooking up my friend's router...what I did was, I replaced my modem and router with her modem and router...and the same problem came up.

    I did a quick google search and this person seems to be having a similar problem:

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.

    Bummer. Well, theres more to come...

    So the issue does NOT happen on your friends modem, leading us to belive this issue is caused specificly by your modem. It could be a number of things...

    First lets see if there is a firmware upgrade available. Below is a link to Drivers for your device.

    What type of Cable Modem are you using? Is your service DHCP or PPPoE ?

  • Dion Miller
    Dion Miller Jan 11, 2008

    Thats odd, with all that I'm not sure where the trouble lies..

    But you say that turning off wireless ultimatly resolves the issue?

    Also, you said you hooked up your friends router to your wall, when you say that do you mean the power outlet or is the ethernet connection in the wall?

Unplug both your DSL/Cable Modem, and the Router from power. Wait 30 seconds. Plug in power to DSL/Cable Modem only, and wait for it to connect. then plug in power to Router, and wait for it to start up. Give it about 1 min. If the lights are still not on, you may need to reconfigure your router. If this does not work, connect your cable/DSL modem to your computer directly, and power cycle it again. Once it is online, check to see if you can get online, if you cannot, contact your internet service provider, as you have ruled out a problem with the router.

Hi, I am trying to install D-Link router WBR-1310 but getting the error code 101 IP address not maching. What do you suggest?

Use the PING command to test the communication between the computer and the gateway.

Goto Start > Run and enter COMMAND.
From the Command Prompt, enter PING
The gateway should reply.

Verify that the residential gateway is getting power. With the broadband modem connected to the WAN port on the gateway, you should have a soild WAN link light. You should use the same cable that connected the modem to the PC to connect the modem to the WAN port on the gateway. Any port on the gateway that has a computer connected to it should have the corresponding LAN link light lit. If you do not get the appropriate link lights, try using different cables.

onfigure browser/Internet Options
Step 1 Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel.

Step 2 Double-click the Internet Options icon.

Step 3 On the Security tab click Restore the default security level.

Step 4 Click the Connection tab and set the dial-up option to Never Dial a Connection.

Step 5 Click LAN Settings. Nothing should be checked. If anything is checked, uncheck it. Click OK.

Step 6 Click the Advanced tab and then click Restore these settings to their defaults.

Step 7 Click OK.

Step 1 Turn the Cable/DSL modem off.

Step 2 Turn the D-Link router off.

Step 3 Wait 60 seconds.

Step 4 Turn the cable/DSL modem back on and wait until all the lights are steady.

Step 5 Turn the D-Link router on.

Most routers and modems do not have an on/off switch. Simply unplug the power. Unplugging the power will not reset (reset back to default settings) the unit.

Check your connections:

DSL-modem to telephone-jack (or cable-modem to cable-jack).

Ethernet cable from DSL-modem (or from cable-modem) to WAN port on your router.

Ethernet cable from LAN port on router to WAN port on your Airport.

Cut the power to the Airport, and then plug it back in, so that it restarts.

Linksys WRT54G wireless router not compatible with Aztech modem?

Darvin, gotta love your ISP. Never fear......

if it isn't too much of a problem (knowing you have wireless setup done already), then do a factory reset on your router ** remember to copy the WEP Key if you have, or recall the PASS PHRASE so you won't have to reset all wireless devices ** Reset is located on back, you need a ball point pen to reach the reset switch.

Reset process: unplug, take ballpoint pen & insert into reset switch & plug unit back in. Sometimes tricky, but you should notice green light goes to yellow/orange upon resetting.

RESET or NOT - you want the Linksys set for ::

Connection Type - AUTOMATIC (for automatic discovery)
Router IP Address -

DCHP - ON, Addresses - and allow 5-50 users
(for security, assign the number of DESKTOP + WIRELESS expected users +1, this way you don't get overrun without knowlege)

Take the cable from Aztech ETHERNET OUT to WAN on Linksys. (usually BLUE) (??) not 100% sure as I have the little silver pocket edition of the same Router. - power cycle (turn both DSL modem & Linksys off for 20 seconds. turn on DSL Modem, wait till it's about as ready as possible, turn on Linksys, should only take 20-30 seconds to power up & recognize.

VERIFY SETTINGS: access router -, goto STATUS. you should see IP Addressing, SubNet, DNS1 & DNS2 settings. If you do not, then you have no internet connection.


Setup Linksys Router with COnnection Type: PPoE, you will need your ISP assigned ID & Password. Follow all other instructions properly.

If you still have problems, please contact me at 906-495-1707 or via Yahoo IM or through this website.

After successful instn of my linksys wireless router i cannot access to wireless online connection

Whenever you connect a different device to the cable/DSL modem the modem itself must be reset. Dont even waste a phone call to linksys. Its useless.

If you are using DSL depending on your ISP you may have to enter your account info into the router's PPoE section

Cable users should have the router set to "Obtain IP aadress automatically"

Use the reset button on the back of the router and start from scratch.
Unplug the cable/DSL modem power
Hook up your router WAN/Internet to the Cable/DSL modem Ethernet/LAN jack
Power on the Cable/DSL Modem first, wait about a minute, then power on the router.

Cannot receive IP from cable modem

I had this problem with another type of router. If the software is fine and the modem shows no problems, its probably your ethernet port on the router. Alot of routers ports go bad after a certain amount of use. It could have been a defect from start and just started to show problems. Logically at this point its hardware. You troubleshot the rest. Last thing to point at is the WAN port on the router going bad.

You can try to reset your Router by using a pen or a paper click there is a little whole in the back of your router that you can click with a pen. This should restart the modem. If this doesn't work you can hold the reset button but this will restore the router to factory default settings
