Title: Powering off DIR-890L causing Internet light amber
Post by: makeyourself on October 24, 2015, 05:55:03 PM
Hi Everyone,

Whenever I power off my DIR-890L, I need to reconfigure the whole router because the internet light always stays amber. This is getting really annoying and wondering if i should just return the router and buy another.

Is anyone else experiencing any issues like this? I am running 1.08b03.

Thanks,

What kind of modem are you using (cable / DSL)?  Try power cycling the modem, and then turn on the 890L.  I remember when I first set up the 890L, it displayed the "amber light".  I unplugged the 890L and power cycled my cable modem.  After the cable modem was ready, I turned on the 890L and everything worked like it should.
