Question about D-Link DIR-615 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Can only connect to the internet wirelessly for about 2-3 mins before signal drops off and can't get it back. Router is new last month and started noticing usage issues last week. On the face of the router the airport bars are constantly flashing. Is my router dead or is there something I can do to remedy this issue?

I'd start off with a hard reset by holding down the reset button down in the back of the router for 15 seconds, I usually cut the power, hold the button down for 15 seconds, power it back on, wait another 15 seconds, THEN I release the button.
That will set everything back to default. Once you've got the router up and running again I would check D-Links support page to make sure you've got the latest firmware version.
That should address your issue, if not, contact D-Link support for an RMA ;)

Belkin N750 DB wireless connection drop


There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

It sounds like you have a problem with a conflicting Wireless signal in your area.

This is caused by another wireless network close by that is on the same channel (or within 5 channels higher or lower) than yours that is causing interference.

You can check this by performing the following:
1. check your wireless network at the moment and see if you can see what the channel number is that is being used at the moment, make a note of this.
2. switch your router off (making sure that any settings that you may have changed on the router have been saved first!).
3. browse for any wireless networks that are in the area, and make a note of the channel numbers that these wireless networks are on. You should find that there is another network on the same, or close to the same, channel number that your wireless network is on.
4. power on your wireless router.
5. whilst the router is coming back on, take a look at the networks that you have found and see if there is a channel that is available that is 5 different from everyone else (ie, if there is a network on channel 1, you will be looking to use channel 6, if there is one on 7 use channel 2, etc). If there is no completely clear channel you may need to try and just look at the strongest signals for a 'free' channel.
6. once your wireless router is back up, log on to the configuration page (may be best to use a wired connection if possible, to avoid disconnections mid-configuration)
7. find the wireless configuration page, and set the channel number to the one worked out in step 5
8. retry the wireless network and see if you get better performance and a more stable connection

Wireless networks are a bit picky when it comes to interference, and they ideally need 5 channels of separation, otherwise the carrier signals can interfere with each other. But with not being able to control your neighbours networks, it can be difficult to get a completely clear channel :)

The other thing to check for is if you have had a change around in the house, and perhaps bought a new appliance (such as baby monitor or cordless phones or a fish tank), as some items can throw out interference to conflict with wireless networks.

Hope that this information is of some assistance to you!

Since getting a new Dell laptop and Linksys E1000 (also have HP desktop), my internet connection keeps dropping (no problems ever before)- sometimes I can stay online for 2-3 hours or it can go in 15...


Hi,

we need to first figure out whether it the modem or the router which is dropping the connection.

Please connect one of your computer directly to the modem, by pass the router and access the internet. If the connection drops then its the modem which is dropping the connection and you need to contact your isp to check it.

If the internet works fine directly with the modem then its your router which is dropping the connection. To fix the router we can upgrade it firmware.

To upgrade the firmware please visit the link below;

Note; If you are not comfortable upgrade the firmware then don’t do it. If not done properly then it can damage your router.

Can't access internet wireles router says connected hp is a vista


If Nothing else changed in the last 2 weeks, such as a new router, or other hardware changes, AND it just started happening, I suggest you do a "system restore" to a date BEFORE the problem started.
This should correct the problem, and if you did any updates or other software installations, you will need to re install them.

Finally, one option prior to system restoring is to turn off the wireless router (unplug it) and then wait a minute. Plug back in. Then turn on your computer. You can try this first if you haven't already..
Good luck..

Go into your "router" configuration under wireless, change the channel it operates on. It is possible some new electronic in your house or neighbor is causing signal interference on that channel causing you to drop your connection periodically.

Bad connection. dropped internet when connected with mac wired or wireless


I'm not sure but it could be that the particular router has some hardware issues. I bought a Belkin wireless N router a few months back and i had the same problem. It only had a short range and kept cutting off in between. I exchanged it with a new router and voila!. it works fine.
And the other thing i've come to notice. At times having the router under the desk or at a corner might not give off enough to provide a connection within the adjacent room so I've had to place the router in a open and unobstructed place. So much for belkins super signalling.
