Depending on the device, if you still can connect to it using your browser (LAN not wireless), login into the router and in settings go to factory reset. If not, there usually is a small opening on the unit that your can insert a pencil/pen tip to push and do a factory reset that will eliminate your password issue.
If you have not tried a reboot, do that first before doing a factory reset.

Reset my dlink dir 615 router and now internet light stays flashing orange

Do you have the Internet connected to the Internet port in the back of the DLINK? You will have to configure the DLINK for internet access. Open a web browser to your DLINK and check on the configuration under internet-setup. Select the type of internet connection you have i.e. DHCP, PPPoE, Static, etc. Once that is set up, you should have access to the internet like before.

How can I change my password?

Here's the web site. Download the pdf file(product manual) which is a zip file. When finished downloading open it and scroll to page 62. It tells you to push the reset button for 10 seconds and let it reboot for about 30 seconds. This resets it to factory settings. You have to set it all up again after this...anyways, here's the link(copy and paste)

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.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!
