SOURCE: Help please! TP-Link Wireless Router TL-WR641G stopped working

It looks like all your devices by themselves are working fine.
Good start.
If you took the router out of your office I assume that the settings from the office and your home are different, which causes the setup not to work properly.

First of all you should find out which hardware version of the router you have and download the manual from here, so you have the information at hand when you're not online.

Then you want to rest the router to factory settings, so you start clean. In order to do so, use the Factory Default Reset button: First, turn off the router's power. Second, press and hold the default reset button then turn on the router's power, until the SYS LED lights up (about 3 seconds). Last, release the reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

Follow the instructions in the manual form page 8 on onwards with a special view on setting up PPPoE. Have your information form your DSL provider handy (Account name and password).
The default webpage for the router interface is http://192.168.1.1
Username and password are both "admin".

Do not enable any wireless security until everything is working fine.

Make sure later to change the password to something else, so no one can "take over" your router.

If this solution did not help, please don't rate it as "Thanks for trying" or so, but leave a comment instead and I will check back and we can work form there.

Good luck!

SOURCE: No more internet thru router after new modem installed

Router setup
Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the Comcast cd installed. then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line.

Did Comcast reset you wireless router settings? If so, you may need to set up your SSID and security settings.


Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: Router not seeing internet connection

If you are on cable internet, you need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Access the router's setup page using your main PC, under SETUP tab, there's a sub-tab called MAC Address Clone. Enable that and click on "Clone My PC's MAC" then click on Save Settings. Power cycle the router and the modem. You should be online after that.

Dir-601 doesn't work with windows 8


I don't think it's Windows 8. Connect a ethernet cable fron D-Link to computer. Is your Wireless Adapter Enabled on the computer. Unplug the D-Link, shut down the computer, unplug, remove battery, plug in D-Link , allow it to selftest, plug in computer, boot normally.

Can't connect a new laptop to router. Are there any updates to the DIR 601 that I can load to see if it will connect?


Connect a LAN cable from the D-Link to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open the browser on your laptop/computer and enter the D-Link's configuration URL..
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings. (WPA or WPA2 encryption) Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings.

I lost my Dlink wireless router Setup CD where can i download the setup software ? Dlink wireless router N150 model: DIR - 601 thanks


Hello frederika_ra,
Go here: http://www.dlink.com/dir-601
Click "Support Resources" and everything you need should be there. I do not believe they allow a download of the software but you can use the manual to setup the router.
Hope this helps!

Web-based Configuration?


If you're connected to the router, navigate to http://192.168.0.1/ . If you're trying to configure the router remotely, that's a lot more difficult. You'll have to check your manual for more information on that. (Or I can scour through the manual for you.)
