|To start with my main computer at the router hub runs Vista and the router in question is a wireless D-Link DIR-615 model. The main computer is directly connected to the router via ethernet cable.|
So I had my router set on a DHCS reservation list, temporarily I turned it off, then went back to it in a little bit and it was working at the time. However the next morning when I turned on my computer it appeared to me that the router wasn't being recognized anymore. I tried all kinds of plugging/unplugging combinations to reset it, I hit the hard reset button on the back of the router too but it still won't show up. I tried a reinstall from the router CD but it won't let me, the install just cancels and says restart computer, maybe it's because I upgraded my router firmware and the CD is older I'm not sure.
Previously the router would show up in my Network Connections I believe with a device called DIR-615, it is no longer there. And when I have the router plugged into my computer I can't even access http://192.168.0.1/, which I use to change router settings.
At the moment I'm on here directly connecting the modem to the computer, but would like to get the router back so I can use the other computers without stealing from the open (slow) networks around me lol. Any suggestions?
