Question about D-Link DIR-615 Wireless Router

1 Answer

D-Link DIR-615 seems to break very easily

I bought a D-Link DIR-615 a few months back and it apparently went out in storm - I could connect through the modem but not through the router. Bought another one to replace it a couple of weeks back and it appears this one has gone out in a storm also. Searching the internet to troubleshoot it, as I just can't imagine it is so fragile that I am going to have be constantly replacing it. Have not been able to find any info on possible ways to fix the router. Just can't believe it is so sensitive. Any ideas for me to try?

I dont think your router has gone bad...

try these simple steps...

connect your computer to one of the LAN(wired) ports of router...
check the ip address and default gateway of your local area connection through control panel > network connections.... if you get the ip adress in the range of dlink router then try going to start > run > type "cmd" and hit enter >command prompt will appear... in command prompt type this


ping (default gateway address) and hit enter...if you get successful replies then your router is not gone bad...

hold the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds and the router should reset back to factory settings and you have to set it up again. Here's the manual though. bottom of page 62. instruction if you forgot password. But it works the same.

if youve changed the password on the router since the other computers logged onto the network, then you need to delete the network history from those computers.
Otherwise those laptops will be trying to connect to the network with the old details.

I have had multiple problems with these routers. They tend to drop signals or have other issues that are hard to explain in a few short sentences.
After you rebooted did you open your browser and type in the IP address to connect to the router software?

I have DI-604 in line between Windows Vista computer and cable modem. Works fine. Bought DIR-615 (wireless). Several places instructions say, ""Insert the DIR-615 CD into computer and click Install Router....


Contrary to the many warnings not to install the router before starting the installation with the CD, I got the installation to complete only AFTER I installed the router inline thusly:

1. Power everything off.
2. Remove DI-604.
2. Install and connect 615 router to computer and to modem.
3. Apply power to router and modem.
4. Apply power to computer and wait until Windows loads.
5. Insert 615 installation CD.
6. Follow the directions.
