My router wont turn on.....
« on: January 18, 2010, 06:14:03 AM »

I purchased this router off bestbuy website. When i first plugged it in nothing happened. I had to plug it and unplug it about 100 times before it started working. This is the only issue i have with this router. I upgraded the firmware and everything works just awesome. I have an xbox360 hooked up as well as 5 laptop computers and no problems. The only issue i still have is when i unplug the router it takes about half hour to turn on. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Need to call DLink customer service or take it back to place of purchase. The router seems to be defective and should power up immediately upon insertion of the power plug.
