This process will help you send the FW down to the router while in the recovery mode. If you can get the router in to the recovery mode first. So yes you need to set up a static IP address on the PC, then Power on the router while holding the reset button in back until the amber light starts to blink. The light should turn amber and keep blinking that color. Then you would open a web page and go to the 192.168.0.1 address and you should see a Recovery screen.

If your getting internet thru the router on a wired connection, can you access it's web page at 192.168.0.1 and leaving your network settings set for Automatic? If you are getting internet via the router on a wired connection, Maybe someone can review your router settings with you using teamviewer.

Okay, I'll try soon. I think what I was trying to say is that when I hold the reset button on the router, I get no flashing amber light. There's no response at all to the reset button. But I'll see if the static IP makes any difference and report back soon.

Thanks again!

At the very least, I can validate that this procedure does work on the DIR-615, as I used it myself (twice)  over a year ago.  ???

I just had a go actually, followed this guide:

http://portforward.com/networking/static-win7.htm

Still, the router has no amber light or goes through no kind of momentary reset. Clearly I reset it not too long ago, that's how this issue with me needing firmware got started, but it seems it doesn't wish to reset now, so maybe I just need a new router?

Does this router come to ready and can you get internet thru it on a wired PC or do you get anything?

Yeah, that's what I've been saying. Imagine how my internet would work if I was going right from the modem to the PC. It would be a solid connection for the PC only with no wireless. When I plug the router in, it's the same thing. A solid connection for my PC only, but no wireless.

It's like my modem is ignoring the fact that I have a router connected.

Normally, when I take the power cable out of the router, then hold the reset button down, then put the power cable back in, the amber light flashes. When I let go of the reset button, even though the power cable is in I get no internet for a moment, because the router is rebooting. I don't get any of this now, even when I'm holding the reset button down, the second the power cable goes back in I instantly get the same non-wireless internet I mentioned above.

My router just isn't responding to resets of any kind!

Any suggestions? And thanks again for the reply.

We're running out of options here. . .  ???
Try unplugging the power cable for 15 minutes before attempting the reset procedure.

I leave it unplugged constantly as I'm not using it right now, cause it's not working correctly. So there's been more than 48hours between each attempt. No idea what's wrong with it. I'm looking to pick up a new router soonish anyway as I think it'll be for the best. This router was just given to me by a cousin, I never really understood what I was doing with it, not even sure how I set it up. But starting from scratch with a new router would be a good idea I think.

I don't really feel comfortable with remote access etc. as safe as it may be...

That said, they'd need to access the settings the same why I do, surely. And that would pasting the router i.p. address into the web browser, but everytime I do this it just says 'Page Taking Too Long To Respond.'

Think I'll just pick up a new router and start fresh.

Both of you never given up with your attempts to help though, and I really appreciate that. So thanks again for all the help!

Understand.
See how the new router works out. Might even try a different model if they have one, like a DIR-655 or DIR-657.
Might have someone help you locally there if your not comfortable with remote access. Someone in person can help you out with the skills and knowledge about routers.

Let us know how it works out.

Good luck.

I don't even know if I'm going with D-link next. Up until now, I've had few issues with the DIR-615 I have (which looks like an older model 615), but I'll just read around and see what's good. Unless you can recommend anything? In this room, everything that's hooked up to the router is done with wires, as everything is close, and for that, I need about 4 ethernet sockets on the back of the router. I can do with just 3 though. But my netbook is used all over the house, mostly upstairs for facebook, youtube etc. so that's what needs the wireless connection. And with this 615, I get 3/4 green bars out of 5 I think, so downloading even something small like sheet music in .PDF format take a take a touch longer than it needs to.

So I just need a router that's solid, holds connection and give a nice fast wireless speed while not costing silly amounts of money (100 tops, could probably go just over, seems excessive though).

I would check out the DIR 655.
If you run out of LAN ports in back then you can always add on a external network switch to the router and then connect up wired devices to the switch to give you more room. I have a 24 port switch on mine.

Good luck.
