Router problems, help please!!!!

  flaz1984 17:04 14 Dec 2004


I have a D Link DI-604 broadband router connected to two PC's, sharing the internet connection. However 2 days a go, the internet connection on one of the PC's failed, the light on the front of the router is still flashing even though the connection is not working.

When i have tested that it is not a cable problem by plugging the faulty PC into the cable modem it works fine.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

try rebooting the router (sometimes in the settings there is a reboot option - otherwise, switch it off and back on again).

That sometimes can cure the problem. It seems that the router is at fault if the computer and cable work via the modem.

See thread D-Link Broadband Router posted 12/12, it might help.

Normally router have a reset button on the unit.
This returns it back to original factory setting, I know mine has as I had a similar prob.

One press on router and restart on comp, all probs went away.

Good Luck.

When you reset the router to factory settings, does that mean that i will need to go through the whole setup of the router again? Or will it recognise my cable modem and set it up for me?
