Question about D-Link DI 804V (DI-804V) Router
How do I reset the DI-804V?
Posted by Anonymous on
There are two ways to reset the unit back to the factory default settings. Through the web-based interface: Step 1: Log into the web based configuration by typing in the IP address of the router (default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The username is admin (all lowercase) and the password is blank (nothing). Step 2: Click on the System Tools tab and go to the Load Default Settings tab on the left. Step 3: Click on the Start button to proceed. This will now load the unit back to factory settings. Note: The Device IP Address will be reset to 192.168.0.1 after loading the default settings. Perform a hard reset: Step 1: Power the unit off by unplugging its power adapter (from the unit, not the wall). Step 2: Insert a paper clip into the reset pinhole. Press and hold the reset button with light pressure. Step 3: Power the device back on by plugging it in. Continue to hold the reset button. Step 4: Watch the lights on the front of the gateway. The status light and wireless light will power off. Once both lights are powered off release the reset button. Step 5: The unit will reboot and now will be reset to default settings.

This example will demonstrate how to create a Virtual private Network (VPN) between two remote locations through the Internet. The VPN policy will use 3DES IPSec to securely send/receive encrypted data over the Internet. When the VPN tunnel is enabled, the two offices will virtually appear to be on the same local network. This example will consist of two DI-804V VPN Routers with a simple setup. The two remote offices in this example will be known as Office A and Office B. Both VPN Routers must already be set up and able to access each other. This is only an example, your setup will vary using the WAN IP address provided by your ISP. Please note the differences in the IP addresses for each office. We will begin by configuring the DI-804V at Office A. Start by going into VPN Settings under the Basic Setup menu. Step 1. In the Connection Name field, type in OfficeA. Click ADD. Step 2. A properties screen will appear for the new connection you have made. Fill in the appropriate information for Office A: Connection Name: OfficeA Local IPSEC Identifier: Local Remote IPSEC Identifier: Remote Remote IP Network: 192.168.1.0 Remote IP Netmask: 255.255.255.0 Remote Gateway IP: 188.8.131.52 Network Interface: WAN ETHERNET Secure Association: IKE Perfect Forward Secure: Enabled PreShared Key: 123456 Key Life: 28800 IKE Life Time: 3600 Step 3 Click SAVE. There should now be a VPN policy created for Office A. Now you will want to Save & Restart the DI-804V. Note: 123456 is an example of a preshared key, please fill in any secret preshared key you desire. Keep in mind that both sites require the same preshared key. Office A setup is now complete, we will now configure Office B with the other DI-804V, Follow the same steps previously with Ofice A to create a VPN policy. Step 1 Please change the appropriate information. Connection Name: OfficeB Local IPSEC Identifier: Local Remote IPSEC Identifier: Remote Remote IP Network: 192.168.0.0 Remote IP Netmask: 255.255.255.0 Remote Gateway IP: 184.108.40.206 Network Interface: WAN ETHERNET Secure Association: IKE Perfect Forward Secure: Enabled PreShared Key: 123456 Key Life: 28800 IKE Life Time: 3600 Step 2 Click SAVE. There should now be a VPN policy created for Office B. Now you will want to Save & Restart the DI-804V. After the VPN policies have been created for the two Offices, the two remote locations should authenticate and connect. To view the status of the VPN connection, go to the Device Status menu. On the bottom-left side of the menu, click on the VPN Status icon. A VPN Status pop-up screen will appear showing VPN connection status. If a VPN tunnel is active, the State should indicate Q-Estab. Go to a DOS prompt and ping the internal IP address of the remote network.
