I bought the DI 604 from Newegg and when I opened it I just had a feeling that this was not going to make smile very much.
It was a White Box purchase. Only cost $30.00. But the router itself wasn't even wrapped in something protective. All the parts were there but, except for the smaller ones, were loose in the box. It does have the latest firmware update. The enclosed cd had been used before.
In the past I've had good luck with white box stuff but this might be the last time I do it.
I can't configure the router.
I hook it up and enter the unit's ip address and then enter the user name.
And with that we come to a screeching halt. This unit will not let me get to the set up screen.
I've rebooted it and my modem and my pc numerous times. Also reset the router a few times.
Turned off all security hardware.
Still only get to the same point.
It downloads ever so slowly the first screen where you would choose what you were going to do next. Click run wizard and die of old age.
D-Link's canned email support told me to reset it. Not much help since I'd already done it.
I use cable broadband with XP Pro, SP2 with no problem when I'm not trying to set up my router.
I can use the internet while plugged onto the router but it's a little slower.
Am I doing something wrong or could this be a defective unit.
Thanks.

if you've done a factory restore by pressing the tiny button on the back and your still having connectivity issues (assuming your trying to connect the the setup on a wired connection),,, then this one may be ready for the circular filing cabinet.... :whistling: there are other ways to connect to a router but that is way beyond my ability.


wait.... enter the unit's ip address... you said... I hope your talking about the default gateway address from an ipconfig in command prompt right?

I'm entering 192.168.0.1 in the address bar as per the instructions. This is also shown in the booklet.
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I think I'll just talk to Newegg and return it for credit and get another one.
