How to setup the D-Link Dir-615 Wireless Router on the Internet

1. You will need to connect your Cable or DSL modem to the Internet port on your router.

2. Connect your computer to any of the 4 LAN ports

3. Next you will want to insert the "Quick Router Setup Wizard CD" in to your CD-ROM drive. This will take you through the automated steps of setting up your router to work with your modem. Note if you have a DSL modem that uses a PPPoE connection software program you will want to uninstall it from the computer before you continue. Also you will need make sure you know the user name and password because you will need to enter it as a part of the setup for the router.

4. When the setup wizard opens you will want to click on "Install Router" in the upper left hand corner.

5. Click on the option for "Setup Wizard" to use the setup wizard.

6. Click "Launch Internet Connection Setup Wizard" to start to setup your LAN settings

7. Click "Next" to continue.

8. At this point you will be asked to create a new password. After you entered a new password click "Next".

Note it is important to setup a password at this point especially if you plan to setup a wireless network so no one will be able to gain access to your router settings.

9. Click on the drop down menu to select your time zone and click "Next"

10. You will need to select the type on Internet connection you have and click "Next"

11. Here are the different step you need to go through depending on the option you selected above.

- If you selected DHCP then you might need to enter the MAC address of the computer that was last connected directly to your modem. If this is the computer you are currently connected to then just click on the "Clone Your PC's MAC Address and then click "Next"
Note you may need to enter a host name if this is required of your ISP.

- This is where you will need to enter your PPPoE user name and password.
Note as a reminder if you have not uninstalled the PPPoE software from your computer because it is not needed any more.

- This is where you will need to enter your PPTP user name and password.

- This is where you will need to enter your L2TP user name and password.

- You will need to enter the network settings provided by your ISP
After entering the required information click "Next"
12. Click on "Connect" to save your settings. At this point your router should be rebooting. After it is done rebooting then click "Continue". Next you will need to wait 1 to 2 minutes while the router connects to the Internet.

Now you should be connected to the Internet. If you are not connected you may need to review you settings. Also you may try unplugging the power from your modem and the router. Then next plug the modem back in and let it run for about 30 second and then plug the router back in. If you still have trouble you may want to contact your ISP to make sure you have your settings right.

how to set up D-Link router

Remove the cable that is attached to the "Internet" port on the rear of your DSL or cable modem.
Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the modem and plug the other end of the cable into the "Internet" port on the rear of the D-Link router. Attach the power adapter to the port on the rear of the router and plug the adapter's cord into a outlet.
Remove the power cord from your modem and wait 10 seconds before plugging it back in. This will reinitialize your modem and force it to establish a connection to the D-Link router. Your router will immediately begin distributing a wireless network with the "D-Link" network name.
Connect your computer to one of Ethernet ports on the rear of the router and open a Web browser. Type "" into the address bar and press "Enter." Enter "admin" into the username field and type "admin" again into the password field. Click "OK" to open the wireless configuration page. Click "Wireless Security Setup Wizard" to create a wireless password for your router's network. Click "Apply" to save the changes to the router's settings.

Cable-modem (or DSL-modem) --> WAN port on CRICKET

and you _have_ a wireless network, without using the D-Link.

If you really want to get yourself confused:

LAN port on Cricket <--- Ethernet "cross-over" cable ---> WAN port on D-Link router.

I assume you have a cable or a DSL modem connectec by a LAN cable to the wireless router.
Have you checked you with your ISP to see if the connection yo your modem is OK?
Have you check the LAN cable from the modem to the wireless router is good and it in plugged into the WAN/Internet port on the wireless router?
Have you installed the latest wireless card driver in the computer/laptop?
