Hello all,

Hope you gurus can help. This one has me a bit perplexed. Home network/D-link DI-614+ router, never any problems. I have one hard-wired machine and several others with wireless connections. For some reason, the hard-wired machine no longer gets through to the net. It has an active connection to the router, and I can connect to the other machines on the network (other computers, tivo), but can't get anything outside our home network. No problems with the other machines at all.

It's set up with a fixed ip, but I've also tried to have it assigned automatically - neither work. I'm running Win2K (SP4). Any thoughts (or other information you need to diagnose)?

Many thanks in advance!

I fixed mine by using this method.

1. With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back on the unit
labeled Reset.

2. Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.

Important: Do not power on unit during this procedure.

3. The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit
is reset.

(Note: Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It
will change all settings back to factory defaults.)

4. The router is now configured.

5. Additional support/information for DLink routers can be found at
