Introduction

I phoned D-Link tech support several times, and they eventually concluded my device was broken, but I got it fixed.

My D-Link dhp w306av would do nothing but blink it's blue (WPS/ENY) LED. None of the support people could fix it with any kind of reset. This is what I managed to do.

  1. (With router unpluged, and no ethernet cable attched) Turn the router on (push in the power button on the side) remember it's not plugged into the wall yet.

    • Take a pin or micro screwdriver and push in and hold the reset button.

    • Still holding the reset button plug the router into a power outlet.

    • Keep holding down the reset button for at least 15 seconds.

    • If you have the same luck I did your green lights on the side will start to cycle and light up.

    • Now you can go back to your quick install guide that came with the router and set it up again.
