Question about D-Link DIR-615 Wireless Router

1 Answer

I've got the DIR-615 router. I've got it set up on with my PC, the PC gets internet through the modem, and the router handles the wireless access for the rest of the house. We noticed the internet speed drop over time, but thought that maybe we had spyware or a virus. Couldn't find anything. I did an internet speed test on speakeasy and it only hit around 3mbs. Then I tested the laptop that's running off the router. It gets around 15mbs. If I unplug the router and plug it back in, I get 15mbs on the PC for a few hours, then it drops off again. Any ideas?

I would make sure that you wireless security set up on the device. If you do not have wireless security setup on the device your neighbors may be using your intenet connection to download whatever they like. If you have wireless security setup and you are still having problems i would upgrade the firmware to the box. If that doesnt work i would ask D-Link they have great support. They can also help you with any of the above mentioned solutions.
Hope this helps please leave me feedback if it does :)

Can't get internet to work with dir-615 router for more than a day or two at a time


If you have more than one device hooked up to the router, when the problem occurs try pinging another device. If you are able to then the router is working fine and most likely the modem is flaky and needs to be replaced. The modem supplies the internet connection, the router just applies NAT so that more than one device and use your public IP address. If this turns out to be the issue make sure you contact your ISP for any special instructions. For instances Comcast requires the MAC address located on the bottom or back of the modem in order for your connection to work, other ISP use proxy settings. Century Link has no requirements.

Try a new working LAN cable between your internet modem and the router. Is your internet modem connected and working? You should be able to directly connect using a LAN cable to check the modem connection. Reboot your modem and router.

Dir 615 Instructions


Hi,
You can access the router through web interface and configure it.
The default username is admin and leave the the password field blank - Don't type anything - and Click Login). All you have to do is connect the router to the DSL Modem through LAN cable (or wirelessly) and make configure the router according to the needs and ISP. To secure the connection follow the following steps: -
First you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer) by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is 192.168.0.1 (written at the back of router) and lookup for the options to do the following: -
1. Change the SSID (Name) of the router
2. Change the default administrative user name and password (unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and leave the the password field blank - Don't type anything)
(The above step would prevent unauthorized access to your router)

Next step is to secure it:
1.On the left-hand side, under Setup, click "Wireless Settings" 2.Under "Security Options", select your desired encryption method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
3.Choose a Network Key - it can be anything, as long as it's 8-63 characters in length
4. Click Apply

Now your router and your connection would become secure and the user has to provide the network key to access the internet.

Connect a PC hardwired to the router. Then open your browser and type in 192.168.0.1 on the address bar to open the interface of the router. Use "admin" for the username and password  to log in. Then click on WAN setup or Internet setup. Make sure that your set to Dynamic IP (DHCP) so that your router can obtain an IP address automatically.You can also check the LAN setup to make sure that the DHCP server is enabled. These settings are the ones that manages your DNS settings.

If you connect the computer to the router , it works.
That means the wired connection is OK.
Open the set up page of the router check the wireless settings of the router.
I think your network is secured and you are not typing the correct network key.
just open the router set up and check the wireless settings .

D-Link DIR-615 wireless modem, unknown password


You need to connect the modem to your computer via the cat-5 cable.
To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear of the unit. With the router power on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process. Wait for 30 seconds to access the router. The default address is 192.168.0.1 when logging in, the username is "admin" and leave the password box empty.
If you need the manual, you can download it at:

I assume you have a cable or a DSL modem connectec by a LAN cable to the wireless router.
Have you checked you with your ISP to see if the connection yo your modem is OK?
Have you check the LAN cable from the modem to the wireless router is good and it in plugged into the WAN/Internet port on the wireless router?
Have you installed the latest wireless card driver in the computer/laptop?
