Question about D-Link DIR-615 Wireless Router

1 Answer

I have a DIR 615 Dlink wireless router connected to a Dell computer running XP Pro. Checked for latest firmware, had it. About every 2 or 3 days it will stop broadcasting a signal and I can not logon with my laptop. If I unplug and reboot the DIR 615 I can get it to broadcast and connect with my laptop. I just started using it three weeks ago. Bought it at Christmas. Thanks in advance

Ok this might be a bit tricky but it sounds like there is another wireless signal that may be interfering with yours.

Do you have an older cordless phone in the house? If so try and move the cordless base farther away from the wireless router. Even if they are on different floors in your house, if they are located near each other the cordless can interfere with the wireless signal.

The other possibility is that there is signal that is coming from the outside of your location and is causing the interference.

I know that when I had an XP Pro machine (Laptop) it would drop the wireless signal every couple of days or so. I traced my problem to my neighbors cordless phone. he had an old one and it was near the side of my house that my router was on and it was causing me problems so I move my router and the problem went away.

hope this helps

Hello, my d-link DIR615 type D1 disconnects himself usely about 3-4 times a day. With a reboot from the d-link it works again after a while. Can this problem be in the DNS? or can you please tell me what...


I had a similar problem in the past. I would suggest the following solutions:

1) Download the latest drivers for the D-Link DIR-625 or D-615 Router at the manufacturer's website DIR-625: http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=501
DIR-615: http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=565
-Make sure to download the correct drivers for your operating system (XP, Vista, Windows 7).

2) Download the latest firmware for the D-Link DIR-625 or DIR-615. It is available through the same listed websites.
Note: Make sure to use direct connection for firmware upgrades so that it upgrades securely without errors.

3) Make sure the modem is up to date. If it's your modem, then upgrade drivers and firmware by googling the appropriate model number and brand of the modem.

4) If it is not your modem, you can still upgrade the drivers and firmware. Further assistance should be available through your ISP (Comcast, Verizon).

5) Sometimes a connection may be disconnecting because the firmware for the connection via FiOS/DSL may not be upgraded in the infrastructure outside your house. To solve this issue, call up your ISP and tell him that you are disconnecting several times a day and ask if firmware is up to date.

6) It may be a faulty modem. If so, call up your ISP and they should replace it for free (generally).

7) Fault router may entail customer support at D-Link. Just contact through email and check your warranty. They may help you even if the product is out of warranty (happened to me).

I have 2 laptops one is dell and one toshiba. I installed new router dlink 615 and I am connected on toshiba but not with dell. What might be the problem?


Check for the IP settings, ensure that they are in sync with the settings of your router. For example, setup your computer to use automatically provided IP if your router assigns one; otherwise else push a manual/static IP.

Does your computer connect to the Internet okay at other wireless locations? Make sure you have the latest drivers in your laptop for the wireless network adapter. You should also verify that you have the latest Windows updates installed.

Is your computer sometimes used in a business network?? If so, make sure the "use proxy" setting has been disabled in your browser when using the dlink router.

Check the D-link website at http://www.dlink.com/products/support.asp?pid=565&sec=0#firmware to verify that you are using the latest version of firmware on your router. If it has any known problems, a firmware upgrade could fix it.

Let me know if you need more details on any of these points. Hope this helps!
