Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

I'm trying to reset my dir-632 to factory state but after holding the reset button down for 10 seconds the wlan light flashes and keeps flashing, shouldn't it stop so it resets. I'm doing this because the setup is telling me to change user name and password.

Both lights on my older model machine won't stop flashing

Try holding both buttons down while you turn on the machine - hold down till they stop flashing, usually 2 - 5 seconds. This resets the machine to its original factory settings.

Link failed and flashing light

      it sounds like you have locked the Router into Firmware Flash mode by incorrectly performing the reset steps which are :
      To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered 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 about 30 seconds to access the router. The default IP address is When logging in, the username is admin and leave the password box empty.
      If however, one presses and holds the Reset button while it's off, then turns it ON, then it will start the flash process and flash the power light orange.
      To recover, you will need to re-flash the Router.
      Here is the D-link support page to find your firmware, you will need to find the correct "version" of the 615 you have and download that file, (you will need to un-zip it,) then follow these steps :
        1. Disconnect the power cable from the router.
        2. Open a web browser and type in the URL but DO NOT PRESS [enter] or the [GO] button yet.
        3. Press and HOLD the [reset] button on the router and connect the power cable. Continue to hold the [reset] button for about 10 seconds, then release.
        4. Now click inside the address bar of the browser and press [enter] or the [GO]. The "Emergency Room" Updating Firmware screen should display.
        5. Browse to and upload the DIR615_v4.11_B02.bin image file.
        6. When you see the message "IMAGE UPLOAD SUCCESS", the flash will begin to be erased and re-written.
        7. Use your browser to again connect to the router at or press [F5] and refresh the page.

        The Dlink setup screen should load. If not, you did something wrong. Go back and try again.

I have a problem flashing button to start the router and not starting. how to solve?

Perform a D-Link Router reset

Step 1 Locate the reset pinhole on the back of the unit.

Step 2 With the unit powered on, press and hold the Reset button.

Step 3 Hold the Reset button for about 10 seconds.

Step 4 Release the Reset button.

Step 5 The unit will reboot. Allow 20-30 seconds before reconnecting.

Step 6 The device is now at factory defaults.

Note: Do not recycle power during the reset procedure. The default user name for most D-Link devices is admin and the password is left blank.
When it says hold for about 10 seconds, don't hold for more than ten seconds or the procedure will likely fail, if ten seconds doesn't work try 5 seconds.

How do i reset my d-link dir-615 to factory settings

Step 1 With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back on the unit labeled Reset.


Step 2 Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.

Note: Do not repower unit during this procedure.

Step 3 The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.

Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults.

Note: The factory defaults username is admin, and there is no password.

I need to reset my new D-Link router to the

The router's admin page is or and the default password should be either "admin" or "password" without quotes. There should be a choice under "Setup" called "Factory Reset". That will erase the settings and reset it like new.

Alternatively, you can follow the procedure as given below on all the brands I've tried (Belkin, D-Link, Linksys)

1. hold the reset button for 30 seconds (don't release)
2. unplug the power (still holding reset) for 10 seconds
3. plug power back in (still holding reset)
4. hold reset for another 30 seconds - the lights will usually begin flashing in some odd pattern
5. release the reset button
6. wait 1 full minute or until the lights stop flashing
7. unplug the power for 10 seconds, just to do a reboot
8. verify the settings (e.g. SSID) are back to the defaults
