Question about D-Link AirPlus G DSL-G604T (790069265662) Wireless Router

Front signal lights on DSL-G604T router

The little row of LEDs on the front of my router are all supposed to be steady, except for the Status light. Recently the WLAN LED has started blinking as if there is traffic on the line. Any suggestions please?

    I have enable WEP but this seems to make no difference. If I'm carrying a 'passenger' how on earth do I get rid of him/her/it?

  • brangwyn Feb 23, 2008

    I have to admit I am getting lots of feedback for which many thanks But, have done all i know how to do about the security of the router and the damn light still keep flickering at me. It appears very likely that I have a passenger but precisely how do I ditch him/her/it?

  • brangwyn Feb 23, 2008

    Nothing seems to work here. I had a look at the log but for some reason the log only shows two days transactions, Jan1 and Jan2, what year I know not. The system has defaulted to the original password (admin)

  • brangwyn Feb 23, 2008

    If I push the reset button do I lose all my router settings as well?

  • brangwyn Feb 23, 2008

    Dear Ginko
    It may be you have solved it. You mentioned that the led contact may be faulty, so in desperation I resorted to the age old method of thumping the router (gently) and the flickering faltered! I then tilted the router backwards slightly and the light is now steady...well nearly, it still give the odd twitch but it does seem as if its a faulty connection.
    Nevertheless it was worth it to me to find out whether I had a passenger and I have at least increased my security level.

    I have been enormously impressed by the level and quality of response from you all and I hope this shows up somewhere as a general big 'thank you' to you all.
    Regards
    Fred

Try pushing the reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds, then change your security from a WEP to a 256 bit WPA (more secure) also make sure that you use a different password, so that if the passenger has memorized the key, this will throw them off completely.

If the wifi is secured is rather difficult you have hijackers

    Wep security is at least 64 bits, how can an hijacker find out a 10 hex cypher code without using CIA equipment for 1 week?

  • Ginko
    Ginko Feb 23, 2008

    I don't thin you'll need to strenghten your security. Even a 64b encryption key is rather difficult to find out, unless naturally you use obvious code, as 1111111111 or 1234567890 or 12345ABCDEF. I do not think you have external hijackers if you put a proper key. I will try now to troubleshoot your problem.

  • Ginko
    Ginko Feb 23, 2008

    First thing to do is checking that in effect you have an hacker in your network. To do so you need to check the router log. You will find it acessing your router control panel from Internet Explorer. I think in Dlink routers you find router log in tools or system tools or something similar. If you have a connection to an external IP that you do not know via wireless in your router log, then you have an undesired host. If you want you could even be able to trace it using his wireless card mac code reported in the log.

    To acess to router control panel you need to go to Internet Explorer and type in routers' IP.I think in your one default IP should be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. But do not trust my memory Check your manual for reference.

    Once there look for router log. it is a text file. there you willl find reported all your router activity.

    Ginko Feb 23, 2008

    If you find an unauthorized wireless connection in the log, then you have an hacker. In this case is likely that:

    a) Your encription key had been randomly discovered and stolen (rather difficult if you dont use 000.. and similar)

    b) somebody with access to your computer opened Router control panel and copied key from there

    c) you simply forgot to do 'save all' after changing router settings when you put encription key.



    a) If you are in case a simply change your key. Chose a difficult one or one gerated with passfrase. If you think that a really skilled hacker is after you then use 256 bit encryption.

    b) if you are in case b change your router user and password. These are the Id and pass that the router asks when you start control panel in browser. By default they are admin admin or admin 1234 or something similar. Your flatmate in this case will not be able to peep into your router setting anymore. (Note.: unless you define special settings to do it, router panel can be opened only using cable conn.)

    c) this is the most common case then I suggest you to start from here. After inputting the new encryption key in router you will need to use a save all settings command to preserve your settings. Otherwise they will be reset as soon as you restart router.

    To check if this is the case go to router wireless page. Check that encr. key is not blank, if it is blank then your network was unsecured, in this case configure wifi save all and is done.





    In case you did not have any hacker on your network then the router may be slightly faulty and that may be the cause for the wifi led blinking for example for a simple contact on router board.



    Hope it had been helpful

    Do not forget to rate





    and check the log, if you reset your router the log will restart from zero. In that case wait for wifi led flickering before checking the log



    Regards

    I forgot to tell you. The last possibility is that someone is just trying all the time to sneak into your network, but they do not succeed have the key. In this case the led will flicker but the hacker will never get into your net because it is encrypted. In this case you find out using router log as shown above.

    The next time this happens, try disconnecting your computer(s) by disabling the radio(s) or shutting the computer(s) down. If it keeps blinking, you've got a passenger.

    If you confirm that you have a passenger, change your wep and double check that you have done the process correctly.

    If it stops, you may have a trogan in your computer. You may need to download additional anti-spyware to resolve that.

    Let me know what you come up with and I'll sure help anyway that I can.

It could be a traffic or buffering on the line. Blink of LED in WAN means you a link or a connection.

I need to make sure my Dlink is secure. I have a DSL-G604T/AU V.A3


you can either hide your SSID so it will not braodcast your signal or put a WEP key so even though they see your AP they wont be able to login.

Try to see if there is sufficient ip address the router gives. The flashing thing only means that it is processing infos.

ADSL Router DSL-G604T


all ADSL routers are very fussy when it comes to power fluctuations, even the tiniest can set them into error, first thing to try, is pull the power cord out of the back of the modem, wait a couple of minuteds, then plug it back it, give it a few moments to re-connect and see how it is, if no luck with that, check the DSL, or ADSL light is on and solid.. if so look on the bottom of the modem for an ip address, open internet explorer browser, type that ip address into the address bar and hit enter, it should prompt you for a username and password.. usually ADMIN for both user and pass.. then go to "status" or "diagnostics" depending on the modem, and it will give you a run down on any potential problem..

PPP error: username and password are wrong (Authentication Failure)
