Section 2 - Installation
Installation
This section will walk you through the installation process. Placement of the router is very important. Do not place the
router in an enclosed area such as a closet, cabinet, or in the attic or garage.
Before you Begin
Please configure the router with the computer that was last connected directly to your modem. Also, you can only use
the Ethernet port on your modem. If you were using the USB connection before using the router, then you must turn off
your modem, disconnect the USB cable and connect an Ethernet cable to the WAN port on the router, and then turn
the modem back on. In some cases, you may need to call your ISP to change connection types (USB to Ethernet).
If you have DSL and are connecting via PPPoE, make sure you disable or uninstall any PPPoE software such as
WinPoet, Broadjump, or Ethernet 300 from your computer or you will not be able to connect to the Internet.

Section 2 - Installation
Wireless Installation Considerations
The D-Link wireless router lets you access your network using a wireless connection from virtually anywhere within
the operating range of your wireless network. Keep in mind, however, that the number, thickness and location of
walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass through, may limit the range. Typical ranges vary
depending on the types of materials and background RF (radio frequency) noise in your home or business. The key
to maximizing wireless range is to follow these basic guidelines:
1.Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the D-Link router and other network devices to a
minimum - each wall or ceiling can reduce your adapter’s range from 3-90 feet (1-30 meters.) Position
your devices so that the number of walls or ceilings is minimized.
2.Be aware of the direct line between network devices. A wall that is 1.5 feet thick (.5 meters), at a
45-degree angle appears to be almost 3 feet (1 meter) thick. At a 2-degree angle it looks over 42 feet
(14 meters) thick! Position devices so that the signal will travel straight through a wall or ceiling (instead
of at an angle) for better reception.
3.Building Materials make a difference. A solid metal door or aluminum studs may have a negative effect on
range. Try to position access points, wireless routers, and computers so that the signal passes through
drywall or open doorways. Materials and objects such as glass, steel, metal, walls with insulation, water
(fish tanks), mirrors, file cabinets, brick, and concrete will degrade your wireless signal.
4.Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or appliances that
generate RF noise.
5.If you are using 2.4GHz cordless phones or X-10 (wireless products such as ceiling fans, lights, and
home security systems), your wireless connection may degrade dramatically or drop completely. Make
sure your 2.4GHz phone base is as far away from your wireless devices as possible. The base transmits
a signal even if the phone in not in use.

Section 2 - Installation
Connect to Cable/DSL/Satellite Modem
If you are connecting the router to a cable/DSL/satellite modem, please follow the steps below:
1. Place the router in an open and central location. Do not plug the power adapter into the router.
2. Turn the power off on your modem. If there is no on/off switch, then unplug the modem’s power adapter. Shut down
your computer.
3. Unplug the Ethernet cable (that connects your computer to your modem) from your computer and place it into the
WAN port on the router.
4. Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the four LAN ports on the router. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on
your computer.
5. Turn on or plug in your modem. Wait for the modem to boot (about 30 seconds).
6. Plug the power adapter to the router and connect to an outlet or power strip. Wait about 30 seconds for the router
to boot.
7. Turn on your computer.
8. Verify the link lights on the router. The power light, WAN light, and the LAN light (the port that your computer is
plugged into) should be lit. If not, make sure your computer, modem, and router are powered on and verify the cable
connections are correct.
9. Skip to page 16 to configure your router.

Section 2 - Installation
Connect to Another Router
If you are connecting the D-Link router to another router to use as a wireless access point and/or switch, you will have
to do the following before connecting the router to your network:
• Disable UPnP™
• Disable DHCP
• Change the LAN IP address to an available address on your network. The LAN ports on the router cannot
accept a DHCP address from your other router.
To connect to another router, please follow the steps below:
1. Plug the power into the router. Connect one of your computers to the router (LAN port) using an Ethernet cable.
Make sure your IP address on the computer is 192.168.0.xxx (where xxx is between 2 and 254). Please see the
Networking Basics section for more information. If you need to change the settings, write down your existing settings
before making any changes. In most cases, your computer should be set to receive an IP address automatically in
which case you will not have to do anything to your computer.
2. Open a web browser and enter http://192.168.0.1 and press Enter. When the login window appears, set the user
name to admin and leave the password box empty. Click OK to continue.
3. Click on Advanced and then click Advanced Network. Uncheck the Enable UPnP checkbox. Click Save Settings
to continue.
4. Click Setup and then click Network Settings. Uncheck the Enable DHCP Server server checkbox. Click Save
Settings to continue.
5. Under Router Settings, enter an available IP address and the subnet mask of your network. Click Save Settings to
save your settings. Use this new IP address to access the configuration utility of the router in the future. Close the
browser and change your computer’s IP settings back to the original values as in Step 1.

DDNS Setting
The router supports DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Service). The Dynamic DNS service allows a dynamic public IP
address to be associated with a static host name in any of the many domains, allowing access to a specified host from
various locations on the Internet. This is enabled to allow remote access to a host by clicking a hyperlinked URL in the
form “hostname.dyndns.org”. Many ISPs assign public IP addresses using DHCP, this can make it difficult to locate
a specific host on the LAN using standard DNS. If for example you are running a public web server or VPN server on
your LAN, this ensures that the host can be located from the Internet if the public IP address changes. DDNS requires
that an account be setup with one of the supported DDNS providers.

Section 4 - Security
Wireless Security
This section will show you the different levels of security you can use to protect your data from intruders. The
DIR-615 offers the following types of security:
• WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) • WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access)
• WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
• WPA2-PSK (Pre-Shared Key)
• WPA-PSK (Pre-Shared Key)
What is WEP?
WEP stands for Wired Equivalent Privacy. It is based on the IEEE 802.11 standard and uses the RC4 encryption
algorithm. WEP provides security by encrypting data over your wireless network so that it is protected as it is transmitted
from one wireless device to another.
To gain access to a WEP network, you must know the key. The key is a string of characters that you create. When
using WEP, you must determine the level of encryption. The type of encryption determines the key length. 128-bit
encryption requires a longer key than 64-bit encryption. Keys are defined by entering in a string in HEX (hexadecimal using characters 0-9, A-F) or ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange – alphanumeric characters)
format. ASCII format is provided so you can enter a string that is easier to remember. The ASCII string is converted to
HEX for use over the network. Four keys can be defined so that you can change keys easily.

4. Select either 64Bit or 128Bit encryption from the drop-down
menu next to WEP Encryption.
5. Next to Default Key Type, select WEP Key 1 and enter a WEP
key that you create. Make sure you enter this key exactly on
all your wireless devices. You may enter up to four different
keys either using Hex or ASCII. Hex is recommended (letters
A-F and numbers 0-9 are valid). In ASCII all numbers and letters
are valid.
6. Click Save Settings to save your settings. If you are configuring the router with a wireless adapter, you will lose
connectivity until you enable WEP on your adapter and enter the same WEP key as you did on the router.

Section 4 - Security
What is WPA?
WPA, or Wi-Fi Protected Access, is a Wi-Fi standard that was designed to improve the security features of WEP (Wired
Equivalent Privacy).
The two major improvements over WEP:
• Improved data encryption through the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP). TKIP scrambles the keys
using a hashing algorithm and, by adding an integrity-checking feature, ensures that the keys haven’t
been tampered with. WPA2 is based on 802.11i and uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) instead
of TKIP.
• User authentication, which is generally missing in WEP, through the extensible authentication protocol
(EAP). WEP regulates access to a wireless network based on a computer’s hardware-specific MAC
address, which is relatively simple to be sniffed out and stolen. EAP is built on a more secure public-key
encryption system to ensure that only authorized network users can access the network.
WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK uses a passphrase or key to authenticate your wireless connection. The key is an alpha-numeric
password between 8 and 63 characters long. The password can include symbols (!?*&_) and spaces. This key must
be the exact same key entered on your wireless router or access point.
WPA/WPA2 incorporates user authentication through the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP). EAP is built on a
more secure public key encryption system to ensure that only authorized network users can access the network.

The DIR-615 supports Wi-Fi protection, referred to as WCN 2.0 in Windows Vista. The instructions for setting this up
depend on whether you are using Windows Vista to configure the Router or third party software.
Initial Router Configuration for Wi-Fi Protection
When you first set up the Router, Wi-Fi protection is disabled and unconfigured. To enjoy the benefits of Wi-Fi protection,
the Router must be both enabled and configured. There are three basic methods to accomplish this: use Windows
Vista’s built-in support for WCN 2.0, use software provided by a third party, or use the traditional Ethernet approach.
If you are running Windows Vista, tick the Enable checkbox on the Wireless Network window. Use the Current PIN
that is displayed on the Wireless Network window or choose to click the Generate New PIN button or Reset PIN to
Default button.
If you are using third party software to set up Wi-Fi Protection, carefully follow the directions. When you are finished,

Setting Up a Configured Router
Once the Router has been configured, you can use the push button on the Router or third party software to invite a
newcomer to join your Wi-Fi protected network. For maximum security, the software method is recommended. However,
the push button method is ideal if there is no access to a GUI.
If you are using the Router’s Wi-Fi Security push button option, simultaneously depress the push button located on
the side of the Router and the button on the client (or virtual button on the client’s GUI). Next click Finish. The Client’s
software will then allow a newcomer to join your secure, Wi-Fi protected network.
If you are using third party software, run the appropriate Wi-Fi Protected System utility. You will be asked to either use
the push button method or to manually enter the PIN. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Troubleshooting
This chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and operation of the DIR-615. Read
the following descriptions if you are having problems. (The examples below are illustrated in Windows® XP. If you
have a different operating system, the screenshots on your computer will look similar to the following examples.)
1. Why can’t I access the web-based configuration utility?
When entering the IP address of the D-Link router (192.168.0.1 for example), you are not connecting to a website on
the Internet or have to be connected to the Internet. The device has the utility built-in to a ROM chip in the device itself.
Your computer must be on the same IP subnet to connect to the web-based utility.
• Make sure you have an updated Java-enabled web browser. We recommend the following:
• Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher
• Netscape 8 or higher
• Mozilla 1.7.12 (5.0) or higher
• Opera 8.5 or higher
• Safari 1.2 or higher (with Java 1.3.1 or higher)
• Camino 0.8.4 or higher
• Firefox 1.5 or higher
• Verify physical connectivity by checking for solid link lights on the device. If you do not get a solid link light, try using
a different cable or connect to a different port on the device if possible. If the computer is turned off, the link light may
not be on.
• Disable any internet security software running on the computer. Software firewalls such as Zone Alarm, Black Ice,
Sygate, Norton Personal Firewall, and Windows® XP firewall may block access to the configuration pages. Check the
help files included with your firewall software for more information on disabling or configuring it.

Section 12 - Troubleshooting
• Configure your Internet settings:
• Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel. Double-click the Internet Options Icon. From the Security tab,
click the button to restore the settings to their defaults.
• Click the Connection tab and set the dial-up option to Never Dial a Connection. Click the LAN Settings
button. Make sure nothing is checked. Click OK.
• Go to the Advanced tab and click the button to restore these settings to their defaults. Click OK three
times.
• Close your web browser (if open) and open it.
• Access the web management. Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link router in the address
bar. This should open the login page for your the web management.
• If you still cannot access the configuration, unplug the power to the router for 10 seconds and plug back in. Wait
about 30 seconds and try accessing the configuration. If you have multiple computers, try connecting using a different
computer.
2. What can I do if I forgot my password?
If you forgot your password, you must reset your router. Unfortunately this process will change all your settings back
to the factory defaults.
To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a
paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process.
Wait about 30 seconds to access the router. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. When logging in, the username is
admin and leave the password box empty.

3. Why can’t I connect to certain sites or send and receive emails when connecting through my router?
If you are having a problem sending or receiving email, or connecting to secure sites such as eBay, banking sites, and
Hotmail, we suggest lowering the MTU in increments of ten (Ex. 1492, 1482, 1472, etc).
Note: AOL DSL+ users must use MTU of 1400.
To find the proper MTU Size, you’ll have to do a special ping of the destination you’re trying to go to. A destination
could be another computer, or a URL.
• Click on Start and then click Run.
• Windows® 95, 98, and Me users type in command (Windows® NT, 2000, and XP users type in cmd) and
press Enter (or click OK).
• Once the window opens, you’ll need to do a special ping. Use the following syntax:
ping [url] [-f] [-l] [MTU value]
Example: ping yahoo.com -f -l 1472
D-Link DIR-615 User Manual
88
Section 12 - Troubleshooting
You should start at 1472 and work your way down by 10 each time. Once you get a reply, go up by 2 until you get a
fragmented packet. Take that value and add 28 to the value to account for the various TCP/IP headers. For example,
lets say that 1452 was the proper value, the actual MTU size would be 1480, which is the optimum for the network
we’re working with (1452+28=1480).
Once you find your MTU, you can now configure your router with the proper MTU size.
To change the MTU rate on your router follow the steps below:
• Open your browser, enter the IP address of your router (192.168.0.1) and click OK.
• Enter your username (admin) and password (blank by default). Click OK to enter the web configuration
page for the device.
• Click on Setup and then click Manual Configure.
• To change the MTU enter the number in the MTU field and click the Save Settings button to save your
settings.
•Test your email. If changing the MTU does not resolve the problem, continue changing the MTU in
increments of ten.

Appendix A - Wireless Basics
Wireless Basics
D-Link wireless products are based on industry standards to provide easy-to-use and compatible high-speed wireless
connectivity within your home, business or public access wireless networks. Strictly adhering to the IEEE standard,
the D-Link wireless family of products will allow you to securely access the data you want, when and where you want
it. You will be able to enjoy the freedom that wireless networking delivers.
A wireless local area network (WLAN) is a cellular computer network that transmits and receives data with radio signals
instead of wires. Wireless LANs are used increasingly in both home and office environments, and public areas such
as airports, coffee shops and universities. Innovative ways to utilize WLAN technology are helping people to work and
communicate more efficiently. Increased mobility and the absence of cabling and other fixed infrastructure have proven
to be beneficial for many users.
Wireless users can use the same applications they use on a wired network. Wireless adapter cards used on laptop
and desktop systems support the same protocols as Ethernet adapter cards.
Under many circumstances, it may be desirable for mobile network devices to link to a conventional Ethernet LAN in
order to use servers, printers or an Internet connection supplied through the wired LAN. A Wireless Router is a device
used to provide this link.

What is Wireless?
Wireless or Wi-Fi technology is another way of connecting your computer to the network without using wires. Wi-Fi
uses radio frequency to connect wirelessly, so you have the freedom to connect computers anywhere in your home
or office network.
Why D-Link Wireless?
D-Link is the worldwide leader and award winning designer, developer, and manufacturer of networking products.
D-Link delivers the performance you need at a price you can afford. D-Link has all the products you need to build your
network.
How does wireless work?
Wireless works similar to how cordless phone work, through radio signals to transmit data from one point A to point
B. But wireless technology has restrictions as to how you can access the network. You must be within the wireless
network range area to be able to connect your computer. There are two different types of wireless networks Wireless
Local Area Network (WLAN), and Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN).
Why is the speed of my Wireless N device limited to 54mbps?
This is likely to be the result of the wireless settings. Go to Advanced -> Advanced Wireless to see if the Wireless
Mode is configured as 802.11n only. As the Wi-Fi Alliance restricts the maximum speed to 54Mbps when WPA or
WPA2 wireless security is configured with TKIP Cipher Type, go to Setup -> Wireless Setup to make sure the Cipher
Type is configured as AES.
Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)
In a wireless local area network, a device called an Access Point (AP) connects computers to the network. The access
point has a small antenna attached to it, which allows it to transmit data back and forth over radio signals. With an
indoor access point as seen in the picture, the signal can travel up to 300 feet. With an outdoor access point the signal
can reach out up to 30 miles to serve places like manufacturing plants, industrial locations, college and high school
campuses, airports, golf courses, and many other outdoor venues.
D-Link DIR-615 User Manual

Appendix A - Wireless Basics
Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN)
Bluetooth is the industry standard wireless technology used for WPAN. Bluetooth devices in WPAN operate in a range
up to 30 feet away.
Compared to WLAN the speed and wireless operation range are both less than WLAN, but in return it doesn’t use
nearly as much power which makes it ideal for personal devices, such as mobile phones, PDAs, headphones, laptops,
speakers, and other devices that operate on batteries.
Who uses wireless?
Wireless technology as become so popular in recent years that almost everyone is using it, whether it’s for home,
office, business, D-Link has a wireless solution for it.
Home
• Gives everyone at home broadband access
• Surf the web, check e-mail, instant message, and etc
• Gets rid of the cables around the house
• Simple and easy to use
Small Office and Home Office
• Stay on top of everything at home as you would at office
• Remotely access your office network from home
• Share Internet connection and printer with multiple computers
• No need to dedicate office space

Where is wireless used?
Wireless technology is expanding everywhere not just at home or office. People like the freedom of mobility and it’s
becoming so popular that more and more public facilities now provide wireless access to attract people. The wireless
connection in public places is usually called “hotspots”.
Using a D-Link Cardbus Adapter with your laptop, you can access the hotspot to connect to Internet from remote
locations like airports, hotels, coffee shops, libraries, restaurants, and convention centers.
Wireless network is easy to setup, but if you’re installing it for the first time it could be quite a task not knowing where to
start. That’s why we’ve put together a few setup steps and tips to help you through the process of setting up a wireless
network.
Tips
Here are a few things to keep in mind, when you install a wireless network.
Centralize your router or Access Point
Make sure you place the router/access point in a centralized location within your network for the best performance. Try
to place the router/access point as high as possible in the room, so the signal gets dispersed throughout your home.
If you have a two-story home, you may need a repeater to boost the signal to extend the range.
For the wireless repeater, there are two types of repeater in D-Link for user to select:
• Universal repeater: It acts as an AP and a wireless STA at the same time. It can support all AP and wireless STA
if they work in the same wireless channel.
• AP-repeater (AP with WDS): only repeat same model or limited models which base on the same proprietary protocol.
Please choose a universal repeater to boost the signal to extend the range.

Appendix A - Wireless Basics
Eliminate Interference
Wireless Modes
Place home appliances such as cordless telephones, microwaves, and televisions as far away as possible from the
router/access point. This would significantly reduce any interference that the appliances might cause since they operate
on same frequency.
Security
Don’t let you next-door neighbors or intruders connect to your wireless network. Secure your wireless network by turning
on the WPA or WEP security feature on the router. Refer to product manual for detail information on how to set it up.
There are basically two modes of networking:
•Infrastructure – All wireless clients will connect to an access point or wireless router.
•Ad-Hoc – Directly connecting to another computer, for peer-to-peer communication, using wireless network
adapters on each computer, such as two or more WNA-2330 wireless network Cardbus adapters.
An Infrastructure network contains an Access Point or wireless router. All the wireless devices, or clients, will connect
to the wireless router or access point.
An Ad-Hoc network contains only clients, such as laptops with wireless cardbus adapters. All the adapters must be in
Ad-Hoc mode to communicate.

Check your IP address
After you install your new D-Link adapter, by default, the TCP/IP settings should be set to obtain an IP address from
a DHCP server (i.e. wireless router) automatically. To verify your IP address, please follow the steps below.
Click on Start > Run. In the run box type cmd and click OK.
At the prompt, type ipconfig and press Enter.
This will display the IP address, subnet mask, and
the default gateway of your adapter.
If the address is 0.0.0.0, check your adapter
installation, security settings, and the settings
on your router. Some firewall software programs
may block a DHCP request on newly installed
adapters.
If you are connecting to a wireless network at a
hotspot (e.g. hotel, coffee shop, airport), please contact an employee or administrator to verify their wireless network
settings.
