Time Configuration settings are used by the router for synchronizing
scheduled services and system logging activities. You will need to set
the time zone corresponding to your location. The time can be set
manually or the device can connect to a NTP (Network Time Protocol)
server to retrieve the time. You may also set Daylight Saving dates and
the system time will automatically adjust on those dates.
Time Zone – Select the Time Zone for the region you are in.
Daylight Saving –
If the region you are in observes Daylight Savings Time, enable this
option and specify the Starting and Ending Month, Week, Day, and Time

Click on Browse to search the local hard drive for the firmware to be used for the update. Upgrading the firmware will not change any of your system settings but it is recommended that you save your system settings before doing a firmware upgrade. Please check the D-Link support site for firmware updates at http://support.dlink.com/ .
Dynamic DNS (Domain Name Service) is a method of keeping a domain name linked to a changing (dynamic) IP address. With most Cable and DSL connections, you are assigned a dynamic IP address and that address is used only for the duration of that specific connection. With the DIR-615, you can setup your DDNS service and the DIR-615 will automatically update your DDNS server every time it receives a new WAN IP address.
Server Address – Choose your DDNS provider from the drop down menu.
Host Name – Enter the Host Name that you registered with your DDNS service provider.
Username – Enter the username for your DDNS account.Password – Enter the password for your DDNS account.
