WBR 2310 Reset Switch

My D-link wbr 2310 router has never worked the way it should be. I always come to the point when would have to be reset by pressing and holding the reset sw in with a paper clip for 10 secs. Unfortunately I always come to realize that there is no switch, or the hole is blocked. So I called tech support couple of times, but they only tell me the same thing to type in and do not understand that I tried this and all other possibilities a million times. The result always "The server at is taking too long to respond." So last time I was so upset when tech support hung up the phone on me, so I went and opened the case and found the switch is factory blocked, (sealed) with black epoxy. Has anyone else found similar problem??? What should I do??? D-link tech support makes a habit out of hanging the phone up on me. The reason I think they do this intentionally, b/c for start they ask my phone number but they have never called me back so far. I am sick of it to keep calling them back and spend hours on the phone waiting.

Re: WBR 2310 Reset Switch

To get the address, plug in an ethernet cable into the LAN 1 Port, and another into the wan port. The wan port should lead to your main modem, LAn into the ethernet port on the back of the computer.

Re: WBR 2310 Reset Switch

Try this...
--Uninstall the d-link wizard software from your computer...if it actually installed.
--Shut down the computer and router...make sure they're connected together with the ethernet cable
--Turn on the router first.
--Turn on the computer
--Wait about 2 minutes after the computer starts up
--Go to the command prompt and type in the command "ipconfig". This will give you the computers ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. To get to the command prompt, click on Start -- Run -- and then type "cmd" and click "Ok"
--The default gateway address should be the address of your router...typically it would be this will tell you if it's something else.
--If the ip address listed after the ipconfig command is blank or begins with 169.... then your computer is probably not talking to the router...the router or network cable may be defective.
--If the default gateway address is something other than ...try that address in Internet Explorer to see if the router will respond properly. If the router responds, you can configure it directly without using the wizard software. Your D-link documentation (on disc?) will guide you through the manual setup procedure...sometimes referred to as the "alternative" procedure.
--Good luck...and I hope this helps!

Configure d-link wbr 2310 and now wont connect

Hi mech_warrior,

Press the reset button of the d-link router for 30 seconds, unplug and plug the power cord.

MAC cloning is used for Cable ISP configuration but that should not affect the router's functionality (odd router behavior) ;-)

That should do it!

I forgot my password how do i reset it? its a wbr-2310 rangebooser g router...

Unfortenately there is no way to retrieve the password. you will need to reset it to factory default. to do this press and hold the reset button down for 15sec while the power to the router is on.

Then you will need to reconfigure your router again.

I have a D Link WBR 2310 router. I had it set up for wireless network on my home laptop. It was always configured for immediate access (no pwd required), secured with wpa. I try to connect with my work...

did you reset to factory defaults or just unplug the router?  If you hit the reset button, you'll have to go in and set everything back up.   Have you tried to connect via webbrowser connected to the router from your home computer?  go to and see if you can connect to the router to see what's going on.

D-link WBR-2310 Stop working

Sounds like a defective modem/modem failure if, it does not reset or if you take all of the other wires out and just leave the power in and none of the other lights go off then that is definitely a defective mode, I suggest either returning the modem to where you purchased it from or calling D link it should be covered under there warranty for replacement.

Wbr-2310 Reset switch is blocked with black epoxy!!!

Usually only routers custom manufactured for some ISP have their resets blocked. If your router is meant to be universal you can return it for this reason. Are sure th
There are two ways to reset a router like this - with the switch and by entering its admin page. You have to know its password and be able to connect to its admin and reset it from there.
Otherwise you have to uncover the reset somehow if you really need to reset the switch
