I have bought D-615 Dlink router. I have Cable modem, am trying to setup. However unable to do it?
Step 1 : Connect your router to a power source and switch it ON. Now using an Ethernet cable connect it to your computer. One end of the Ethernet cable goes inside the LAN port of your router while the other end goes into the Ethernet port on your computer. Connect the ADSL modem cable to WAN port and wait for few minutes to let the connection get established.
Step 2 : Open your web-browser and enter 192.168.0.1 in the URL field. This is the default Ip address for your Dlink router, if this does not work, use your IP address in the URL field. This will redirect you to the login portal of your router.
Step 3 : A login box asking for your username and password will open in front of you. Enter the username as admin and leave the password field blank. You can also search for the login credentials at the bottom of the router.
Step 4 : D'Link DIR-615 setup wizard will open in front of you. Click on wireless settings appearing on the left side of navigation panel and select “Manual configuration”.
Step 6 : Change the wireless network name (SSID). If you want to change the wireless channel uncheck the box namely “Enable auto channel scan”. Also, make sure that the channels must be 1,6, or 11.
Step 7 : Go to the security mode and choose the option WPA-PERSONAL as it is most secure encryption type and WPA mode as WPA2.
Step 8 : Below the encryption type, you will see a password field. Enter a strong password so it cannot be guessed by any hit and trial methods.
Step 9 : Now, save the settings.
Step 10 : Congrats, you have successfully configured your D-Link router dir 615.
Step 1 : Log in via https://192.168.0.1 (default "username: Admin and no pass")
Step 2 : Go to setup tab ----> internet ----> internet connection wizard
2.1 CHANGE PASSWORD ! click next
2.2 chose time zone (you know where you are)
2.3 Configure your Internet Connection DHCP Connection (Dynamic IP Address) Choose this if your Internet connection automatically provides you with an IP Address. Most Cable Modems use this type of connection.
2.4. Press "clone your computer's MAC address" ; hostname: 'your computer name in ubuntu' ( mine is "grobar" yours is ..... )
Step 3 : Go to setup tab ----> wireless settings ----> Wireless Network Setup Wizard (after this we're gonna do manual settings)
3.1 give your network a name= SSID (e.g. 'grobar')
3.2.Automatically assign a network key (Recommended) and chose WAP or WAP2
3.3 Write down the network key!!! Or do printscr and save this page. Right here you're pretty much set but please do step 4 as well!!!
Step 4 : Go to setup tab ----> wireless settings ---->Manual Wireless Network Setup
4.1 Wireless Network Settings Enable Wireless : ALWAYS Wireless Network Name : (Also called the SSID) the name you gave in 3.1 802.11 Mode : chose "mixed 802.11ng and b" Enable Auto Channel Scan : YES Wireless Channel : AUTO Transmission Rate : BEST (Mbit/s) Channel Width : AUTO 20/40 MHz Visibility Status : !!!Invisible!!! (so that no outsiders know your SSID except you)
4.2 Wireless Security Mode : WPA-Personal
4.3 WPA mode: WPA2 only Cipher type: AES Group key update interval : 3600 seconds
4.4 Pre-Shared Key : the one that you generated (and wrote down somewhere) in 3.2. you can change this key if you want but I suggest to leave it as is...
