The router is now acting as a switch and not a router
The Internet line from the modem should go to the Wan-Internet connector of the router. If it doesn't then the router will not show an internet connection just Local connections

If that works as you have it setup, then I would suspect the "modem" you have is also a router.
Go to and get the correct setup information for your router, click the "products" links for the manuals and updates etc.

Sounds like the D-Link is failing. Here is what you can do.
First grab a pen and push the reset button on the back of the router (hold it for 5secs)

Next follow the link below to change your username and password. If you cant find the D-Link CD dont panic, simply continue following the instructions for additional info.

Here is the link

I am trying to find my wep2 key but fail to find it on the d link weppage provided ? help please

Reset the router and log in on the web page, and log on to input a new wep2 key.
Resetting is achieved by pressing the small button at the back of the router, for 2-5 seconds (between power input point and ethernet cable).
The light for the internet on the face panel should temporarily show red and then green. When all lights are green, you can then log on as admin (without password). Click on Set Up at the top menu and then click on the Wireless Settings on the left side-bar, then on the Wireless Network Setup Wizard on the followup screen. Name your Ssid, Click next. On the follow on screen select to manually input your own password and check the box for wap and wep. Save the changes at the next screen (at the top)

You can changethe log in password (from no password to your choice). Save at the top and reboot.

The red light on my d link 615 came on after I reset my router. It gave me a new password and renamed my network.

You need to enter router config page (connect via cable) and setup cloning MAC address (this depending on your ISP requirements, i.e. VirginMedia), then rename your network and secure it with WPA-PSK2 password

The d-link light does not turn on when power plug

Check the power adapter of the dir-615 for output supply. It might have short circuited due to voltage surge.
