Wbr-2310 Reset switch is blocked with black epoxy!!!
I get Error 115 during router setup installation. It's telling me to reset router by a paper clip pressed and hold in for 10 secs. I can't do it, b/c switch is covered, molded, blocked with black epoxy. I have purchased this router from Best-Buy in a factory new and sealed box. D-link support guys are useless, they hung up the phone on me three times tonight thanks Ronny

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

With the router powered on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back on the unit labeled Reset. Hold the paper clip down for 10 seconds and release. Note: Do not repower unit during this procedure. The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.
Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults. The factory default username is admin, and there is no password.
You will have to do a hard reset on the machine and reprogram it with any settings you had previously. This will wipe all your settings out, so make sure that you dont' have any static or port settings you will need.
Look on the back for a little tiny hole, it will say reset. You will need a paper clip for this part. Hold down the reset button for about 30seconds. You might have to unplug it from the power after this for it to refresh.
Open your browser and got to 192.168.0.1(I beleive this is the ip of this router) and type admin for the user name and leave the password blank.
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 set-up form scratch.
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 192.168.0.1...but 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 192.168.0.1 ...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!
