DIR-868L WIRED not working help please pretty please
« on: March 05, 2016, 11:07:31 AM »

Hello all,

I hope someone can help me...I just moved and connect all my components now the router WIRED connections are not working. But they were working a week ago and for the past 9 months.

I have Time Warner Cable with a Arris Cable Modem(SB6183)

What happens - Connected all up, I can use the WI-FI off the router but not the wired connected components such as IMac, PS4...

On my IMac I get a message saying : Ethernet has a self - assigned IP address and will not be able to connect to the internet

The PS4 well doesnt connect either by trying to go thru the internet connection set up

Please help,

Thanks

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?
  • Has a Factory Reset been performed?
  • Was a Factory Reset performed before and after any firmware updates then set up from scratch?
  Link> >FW Update Process
  • Was the router working before any firmware updates?
  • What ISP Modem service link speeds UP and Down do you have? Link> Speed Testing Sites
  • Check cable between Modem and Router and devices, swap out to be sure. Link> Cat6 is recommended.

Any external network LAN switches connected as well?

So I feel silly. The connections on each end, I had not checked. So I did only because I had no other trouble shooting option and yes thats what it was...
