Question about D-Link DIR-615 Wireless Router
Just got a dir615 from virgin media. when trying to install it will not get any further than connecting LAN port from router to pc. the LAN light does not light up at all . this is the second router virgin have sent me and it has the same problem as the first. is there any other way i can get this router working
If the lan light does not light up, there is a problem with the connection between the pc and the router. Did you use the cable between your modem and your pc as the cable between your router and your pc? If so, it may be the wrong cable. With some modems the suppler sends a cross over cable. This will not work between your router and your pc. Get a straight through cable and try that.
If that does not work, we need more info to help you more.
1. What is the IP address set to on your PC. See the TCP/IP properties listed in your network connection properties in the control panel.
2. Does your PC work with the modem directly?
3. Does the cable you are using have a cross-over label on it?
4. Are you trying initially to connect to the router via a wireless connection? You should use a cable connection to set up the router, then try the wireless connection.
good luck, and if any of this solves your problem please leave feedback. Otherwise send more information.
