D-Link Software recognizing modem as Router, router not working

  1. I have a significant problem with my computers not recognizing my d-link router. I screwed something up today and now my router won't work. I have had the router for years working just fine, but today I was trying to connect a new kindle which wouldn't connect to the Wi-Fi and I lost the router after screwing around with configuration.

    Basically I've been trying to re-install the router, I changed the SSID but it appears the d-link quick router setup software recognizes the modem as the router and won't re-intall my router thus denying me access. Has anyone ever ran into a situation such as this? Please help...

    Find the reset switch (usually a smal hole and you press a paper clip into it for ~5sec).

    That will bring it back to day-1 default settings.

    Unless you are attaching to the modem/router using USB, there's no software to be installed
    (that's only used for USB) - -
    just cable the eithernet cable to a LAN port on the router and then you can configure it
