Title: DIR-845L and Vodafone SureSignal
Post by: pc99pc on April 20, 2013, 04:21:12 AM
So I have a lovely new super-quick DLink DIR-845L router.
I have plugged in my new design suresignal  and 1 hour later still have one flashing light.
I can see the ethernet lights flashing like crazy but we are not getting a connection. This used to work without issue on my Linksys router. I also have one of the second model SS's which works fine on the linksys. when I plugged it into the DLink i get the same issue as above. 
Presuming the SS is not faulty, Either I may need to wait longer.... or I suppose the DLink router may need to have some settings changed around fixed IP addresses or port forwarding or similar but probably need some step by step guidance around that as am fairly clued up but not an expert on all that kinda stuff.

Suspect similar issues on similar DLink models have been resolved - can someone help me please?

Link>What Firmware (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=47512.0) version is currently loaded? Found on routers web page under status.
What region are you located?
Are you wired or wireless connected to the router?
Has a Factory Reset been performed?

What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?
Check ISP MTU requirements, Cable is usually 1500, DSL is around 1492 down to 1472. Call the ISP and ask. Link>Checking MTU Values (http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=53008.0)

Some things to try: - Log into the routers web page at Use IE, Opera or FF to manage the router.
Turn off ALL QoS (http://vonage.nmhoy.net/qos.html) or Disable Traffic Shaping (DIR only) GameFuel (DGL only and if ON.) options. Advanced/QoS or Gamefuel.
Turn off Advanced DNS Services if you have this option under Setup/Internet/Manual or under Setup/PARENTAL CONTROL/Set to>None: Static IP or Obtain Automatically From ISP.
Enable Use Unicasting (compatibility for some ISP DHCP Servers) under Setup/Internet/Manual.
Turn on DNS Relay under Setup/Networking.
Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices ON the router. Setup/Networking. This ensures each devices gets its own IP address when turned on and connected, eliminates IP address conflicts and helps in troubleshooting.
Ensure devices are set to auto obtain an IP address.
If IPv6 is an option on the router, select Local Connection Only or Disable IPv6 options under Setup/IPv6.
Set Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP under Advanced/Firewall.
Enable uPnP and Multi-cast Streaming under Advanced/Networking. Disable uPnP for testing Port Forwarding rules.
Turn off WISH, and WPS under Advanced.
WAN Port Speed set to Auto or specific speed? Some newer ISP modems support 1000Mb so manually setting to Gb speeds can be supported by the router. Advanced/Advanced Networking/WAN Port Speed
Set current Time Zone, Date and Time. Use an NTP server feature. Tools/Time.

Try putting the IP address your Vodafone gets from the 845L into the DMZ on the 845L.
