D-Link DIR-615 :: Connection Dropping And Router Rebooting Automatically
May 31, 2012
I purchased the DIR-615 last week, and have experienced intermittent loss of internet connectivity, and automatic rebooting numerous times a day. A solid connection is up for 90% of the time; but you never know when connection will be lost. When connection is lost it automatically comes back after about 5 minutes with the router rebooting itself. I though I would ask for assistance here prior to taking it back to Fry's. I was previously using a 6 year old Linksys, and had no problems for years until it recently decided to die.
Hardware Version I1
Firmware Version 9.01NA (I updated from 9.0)
To start off, the wireless router we have is a D-LINK 615 Wireless N 300 Router.We've had this router for a couple of months now and only recently has it been giving us grief. When we first got it (it was actually a friend's who had lent it to me but have been using ever since), it was working like a charm. No dropped connections, etc.However, as of a few weeks ago, we've began to notice that the connection has been dropping constantly. It started one a day around the same time (in the evening) and ever since has happened multiple times per day.The connection will either drop all together (lights still going on flashing) or there will be a limited connection (as stated in Windows) and I can't do anything. This happens for my laptop as well as my PS3. My desktop is hard-wired so there's never a connection issue there. Power cycling the router usually fixes the issue but again, this is constant and keeps disconnecting for some reason and having to power cycle every day is annoying.All the lights are always flashing like normal but the connection just drops off.
I don't know where to begin but I have about 4 land lines to the router, and 2-3 wireless computers. But what I notice is that the internet connection is very slow and things drop. My downloads would be incomplete, and streaming is terribly slow. My torrent downloads will always reset. Simply put, this type of internet connection is terrible.
My D-link wireless router (WBR-1310) keeps dropping my internet/email connection. The little green lights are all flashing intermittently except of the one on the far left which stays on. I will have a connection for a little while/few minutes and then it drops.

My Huawei E3231 dongle gives me a strong signal and stable connection and rarely loses connecton when plugged directly into my laptop. In the router, connection duration only lasts, fairly consistently, about 30 minutes. 3 UK base station is in sight and only about 90metres away. I have to power off/on the router and turn off/on the wireless button on the laptop to restore connection. i've tried setting idle times etc and other things in the router settings but no joy. The OS is W7 Home Premium SP1.
Region : India Model : TL-MR3420 Hardware Version : V2 Firmware Version : 3.13.27 Build 121206 Rel.60215n ISP : TataDocomo 3G
I am having problems with my TL-MR3420 router, it disconnects WIFI all the time. My ZTE MF 631 dongle gives me a strong signal and stable connection and rarely loses connecton when plugged directly into my laptop. With my MR-3420 V2 losses connection, duration only lasts for about 2 to 3 minutes. I have to power off/on the router and turn off/on the wireless button on the laptop to restore connection or manually disconnect in the web interface of MR -3420 and reconnect.
Even i tried the changing channel bandwidth and channel, still no luck. Router settings is pretty much default, expect security key. I have quite recently upgraded to the latest firmware but the problem seem not to have been resolved.
he will lose connection with his chat programs for like 2 minutes then automatically be signed back on. He says he notices no other connection loss, but notices that sometimes his streaming will lag or games will lag. His ISP is Armstong (?) and he's wired to the router. XP OS.
I just got a DIR-655, and I got it working, with some effort. However, the wifi stops connecting to the internet every few hours and requires a reboot. Only a reboot of the wifi portion of the router's software, I go to Manual Wireless Connection Setup and save it without changing anything. LAN connections don't experience this.
I have an E4200 v1 wireless router. Intermittently, my hard wired laptop (and hard wired desktop) loose Internet connnectivity and when I look at the 4200 I see the status light flashing slowly like it was just rebooted. I am runnong 1.0.04, have reset to factory, reflashed the 1.0.04 code and done a 30-30-30 reset (so far no drops since the 30-30-30 reset but we'll see).
I've had it for a little over a year and its always been really good with internet connection, strength-wise and speed, never dropping below 95% and just a Megabyte or two off from my corded computer. I have a high end d-link network card in two other computers as well and they each experience the same problem. So something is up with the router. Frequently, when I connect this specific computer to the internet, it drops wireless signal completely and won't connect for any computer for a couple minutes. Then suddenly, out of the blue i'll regain connection. Also, i used to always get a strong 35 Mbps on wireless, which I still do on corded, but now i only do on rare occasion. Most of the time i'm stuck at 12 or 14 and even more often, it drops to 1 or 2. Very unstable. I have reset it it multiple times, along with my modem, still same old problem persists...
My internet has never had many issues, but since 2 days ago it has been frequently dropping the connection every so often (maybe every 10-30 minutes). The speed jumps all over the place, reaching as high as 2mb/s and then dumping down to 0.14 kbps while going up and down. I am not sure what the issue is. I am running wirelessly on my desktop using a D-Link DWA-130 adapter.
My DIR 651 randomly drops connection, is not set for IP fragments (error on PS3 even though I set MTU), and has a flashing green globe compared to my other DLink router which has a solid green globe (replaced with DIR 651). I have BHN Road Runner Turbo (Speeds of 30mb/2mb) and my modem (supplied by ISP) is a Motorola SB5100.
I have seen several posts regarding internet connection dropping. Mine does the same. I have a cable modem in front of the router. The router is setup with two SSID's (one 2.4GHz, and the other 5GHz). So often the connectivity to ENET drops, forcing me to power cycle the router. Other then the two SSID's, the router setup is factory default. I need to debug this. I have noriced that the DNS IP addresses do not show up under setup. Where do I start?
My router keeps dropping my internet connection. I wonder If its the ISP cable modem that drops it and messes up my router forcing me to reboot. Drops it cause of some time out; or the like.If I can have the router periodically send a signal to my modem
As I continue to have various issues with my revision A version of the DIR-825, does an updated firmware is in the works? Or has revision A been DE-supported by Dlink?
I'm still having issues with: Share port printer no longer being recognized/usable until router rebootedLoss/overload of router which causes all clients (wired and wireless) to loss connectivity Router rebooting itself periodically
I have a D-Link DWA 510 and it's been perfectly fine, no hassles. Until about a week ago. Since then, not a lot has changed in my computer except for a new PSU/CPU and Keyboard and Mouse. Nothing has changed about the router, it's just the card that's messing up.
What I've tried: Reinstalling the drivers Updating Rolling Back Changing PCI card position
I'm up for trying many things. I just want some reliability until Saturday/Sunday when I buy my new card.
I'm using the 802.11 Mode Mixed, with WPA (Both WPA-WPA2).
I'm new but I recently bought a new D-Link DIR-615 router. After getting everything setup manually due to the cd install not working properly. I was walked through the manual setup with D-Link Tech Sup. Now everything is working fine, but when I go to open mushclient and log into one of my mushes to rp, I will connect just fine, but after a min or so the connection drops on the client itself.
Now before this D-Link, I had a Netgear router and Lynksys Routers, ran the install software and everything. Things worked, I was able to login to my mushes and not worry about getting disconnected from them. But now with his router, I feel because I didn't install the software, that something wasn't setup properly and I have to reconnect to the mush every few minutes. Now the internet doesn't drop, I'm still online, still able to surf, able to play on my Xbox 360 and connect online with my laptop. But this one program, the connection drops constantly. Now If I just connect using just my modem, I can stay connected until the mush times out due to me being idle for say about 8mins. But if I'm chatting with someone in Mushclient, the connection drops and I have to reconnect.
The old 615 has been working very well for some years now, but the last couple of days we have had to turn it off and on again to get internet. It has happened 3 times in the last 24 hours. The globe light on the router remains green, and the notification icon on windows 7 doesn't show any problems yet we cant connect to the web. I've been looking on the forum and trying to understand some of the solutions and checklists already posted, but they don't make a whole load of sense to me unfortunately.
The firmware on the router is 2.27. The only change I have made to the system is that my wife's lan card seems to have died a death last week, and her computer is now connected by wireless. My computer is now the only one connected to the router by a lan cable.
There is something I don't understand. Under setup / network there is a dhcp reservations section. Pretty much every device seems to have a reserved IP address, and some of the devices that are reserved we no longer own. My son does gaming and wants a constant IP address, and my computer might need a permanent IP (don't know - just guessing here). Should all the other computers be allowed to sort themselves an IP every time they log on? Most of the devices have expires never, and some of the devices have the blue link that I can click for revoke and reserve with a time by them.
Am I barking up the wrong tree here and this lot has nothing to do with the dropping connection? What do the revoke / reserve and times mean? What happens when the lease runs out? Will the connection drop on that computer and it will have to try and connect itself again, or does it start a new lease every time it logs on to the router?

I added XBox 360 about a month ago and didn't change any settings. About a week and a half later, I started constantly dropping connection to laptops and Xbox 360. I tried changing router setup to recommended settings for gaming with XBox 360 with no difference. Since changing set-up to above, internet is NOT dropping out. But now I need setting up for XBox 360 gaming and PS3 movie streaming without losing connection again.
I have just upgraded my network to the 802.11n standard, or at least am trying to do that. Im using a DIR-615 as Access Point and a DAP-1522 as bridge to cover the entire area.After having some trouble figuring out how to set up and connect the devices, i figure out that it might some other problem than my setup of the devices (The symptom was that the connection was ok, but then it seemed to be dropped, even though the DAP-1522 still displayed connected in the status page).
After reading what I could find about the DIR-615 and DAP-1522 in this forum and on the internet, I found a suggestion about changing the Wireless Mode from 802.11b/g/n to 802.11b/g, and after doing that everything works fine, its just not an upgrade anymore.I have fixed the channel to 10, just to check that it wasnt noise from other equipment. The symptoms are very reproducable, trying to connect wiin n-mode and bridge only works for 30-60 secs. Switching back to b/G mode and all is fine.
I have just purchased a DIR-825. Set up went through without a hitch. (I have it wired, not wireless at the moment). But I am consistently dropping my connection to the internet/Lan . I have a dual boot system (WinXP-Win7) and it's happening on both platforms, so i know it's not an OS problem. I have reverted to my old DIR-604 out of frustration. I was hoping you might have suggestions or a potential solution before I contact customer support for official assistance (if it exists) on this matter.
I'm having problems with my wireless connection constantly dropping and have set the optimal settings from the sticky's in the forums, nothing has changed this problem.
-Have changed to a empty Channel. (8) - TX and RX packets dropping, also some errors. -All new CAT 6 cabling between router and modem. -Have tried all different wireless modes. -Wired clients are working perfectly. -Changed the DNS servers.
I purchased this router and a Motorola Surfboard SB5101U for my home network. My current set up at home for devices connected to router are as follows:
2 Macs and 2 iphones - Wireless 2 Directv boxes, 2 blu-ray players and xbox360, Ethernet cabling.
The issue I am having is that everyday at-least 7-8+ times my internet will just stop coming through. I never lose connection to the router it's self. But I cannot load webpages/content on any of my devices. They always show as being connected fine to the router though. I have attempted to call Cox cable, my ISP, to resolve the issue. And I am always told that everything looks fine on their end and that the issue must lie with the connection between the Modem and router. The rep then walks me through a complete reboot of both router & modem and of course, the issue is resolved 100% of the time. I am trying to fix the issue my self to avoid a $50 service call fee from Cox which could still not fix any issues at all. Since I have done some searching and found some advice on making changes to the configuration of the router. But time after time I continue to get the same issue.

I have a T L-WR1043ND v1.9 with the latest factory firmware that I recently purchased. Ran fine for a couple of weeks. Now my WAN connection seems to be dropping. I get an IP and DNS from the ISP but I cannot ping anything (google etc...) past the router. I have to hit the detect button or release and renew the IP in order to gain access. Then after a few hours or a day the issue reoccurs.
I installed my camera a week ago and have since noticed every 15 minutes (only while the camera is plugged in) or so I would lose my internet connection. A message comes up at the bottom of my screen that says 'local area connection. A network cable is unplugged'. It takes 15-20 seconds for the connection to be re-established.
I called my ISP and asked if there were any settings on my router I needed to change since the camera install but they told me 'no' and I should contact tech support for the camera.

I have a WR2543ND router and everyday it drops the wireless connection . all the lights on the router stay on and im still connected to the router but it looses the internet connection . the windows trouble shooter says that it cannot connect to the dns server , I have to reset the router and my computer to get it working again . I Have updated the firmware but still the same
I setup a D-Link DIR-825, VB1, Firmware V2.00NA about a month ago. We have 3 Macs here at home - 1 brand new iMac, a G4 Powerbook, and an old G4 / 933 Tower. The G4 tower is connected via ethernet. The other two through Wi-Fi. My problem is that I can barely use the internet for even a few minutes on the G4 tower, connected via Ethernet, without losing my connection. I can be in the middle of loading a page or an image, and suddenly it will say "Waiting for xxx.com". Then if I try to go to Google.com or something I will invariably get "Looking up xxx.com". The connection usually returns on it's own, but it can take up to 3 or 5 minutes. When I get this message on the ethernet G4 tower, I will also have lost connection on the wireless Macs. For the first couple of weeks the tower was not connected and we were just using the two wireless Macs, and they were working well. It seems that as soon as I hooked up the G4 tower via ethernet, connections became very flaky and intermittent all of a sudden.All the Macs are configured for DHCP. We have a Time Warner cable modem. The G4 tower had previously been used at my office with it's own dedicated DSL modem / router, and it worked flawlessly for months at a time without dropping a connection. I've tried rebooting the modem, then the router, then turning all the Macs back on, several times. Same result. I just tried loading the new firmware but it didn't work. Said the Gateway was too crowded or something.
