    Hi there,

    I recently pulled out the power cord D-link G604T router. This was becuase The internet was playing up, and loosing connection about every 11 hours. When I pluged the cord back into it, I pressed the reset button too.

    Now it apears to have 'jammed'?? It comes on, the status light flashes as usal, and when I plug network cables into it, those lights come on to.

    However, it has not reset, and appears to be stuck.
    My computers will not cvonnect to it, and say 'Limited or no Network connection.' When I click repair, It says unable to renew ip, and this is happening througout my network.

    To resolve this problem, I have tried turning off the thing, turnig it off and leaving it overnight, and pressing the rest button again. I have also taken off the cover, becuase I had head something about 'Jumping'??? cuircit boards to reset to factory default. But did'nt really know what I was looking at, and so quickly replaced the cover!



    Any ideas as to what I could do please?
    Cheers.

    How do I reset my router back to the factory default settings?

    To perform a reset, please follow steps below:

    Step 1 With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back on the unit labeled Reset.

    Step 2 Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.

    Note: Do not repower unit during this procedure.

    I'd say the bolded part was the problem :eek:

    Candy is right on how to do that but be aware you may have to reset all your network settings including password and logon for router when you do this. Best bet is to call Dlink tech support which is excellent and will ride through this with you....

    Well, I think you zapped the unit when you started it without waiting, then tried to reset it :(
