Dlink routers are fairly easy to set up most of the time, I've used several of them over the years. What the heck is this tower you keep speaking of? Is it a second computer or is it THE computer for your desktop monitor. Your explanation leaves a lot to be desired. I've never seen a commercial router that stands up like a tower computer and if you have one, it is probably a pretty expensive unit, so we must clarify and completely understand what you are talking about. You indicate that removing power and cables from the tower would disable your monitor and that makes it sound like the tower IS your computer. Does that make sense to you, it does to me.

    It appears to me that the tower is your computer and not a router. The fact that the software is indicating a second router is probably more likely a result of certain procedures being done out of order. The pamphlet that came in your Dlink box should describe in fairly good detail what needs to be done and the order in which it needs to be done.

    Sorry about the repeats, we seem to be having some capacity overload problems over here at Fixya that may be causing this.

Open your web browser and type in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1 by default)

The default user id is: admin and the password is left blank. Once you get into the router go to the wireless setup or tab.

Below is a pdf manual of your router.

I dont have the disk and im wondering if i am still able to install/setup dlink wireless router dir-625...and how i would do so if possible?


Yes, it is possible to set up this device without the disk.
You'll need to download the "quick router setup" program from the D-Link web site here:
http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=DIR-625
At that site, click the "Support Resources" tab, then click the "Additional Downloads" link, and finally click on the "Download Now" button next to the "Quick Router Setup" entry.
This will download an executable file to your Windows machine. Be sure to save the file to your desktop, and then double-click the .exe file and follow the directions.

Dlink dir 300 internet problem


First you have to make sure that you connected it correctly. the cable coming out of the modem should be connected to the single port (Internet port) at the right when facing the back of the router.

All computers that are wired through it should be able to access the internet. if one of your computers cannot access the internet you may want to check the IP address that you are getting. (go to a command prompt and type ipconfig).

If you are connecting a wireless computer check the wireless security setting which you can find at the configuration (setup) page of the router. to access the configuration page check the owner's manual.
