I'm using Dlink DIR-615 router to connect to the internet. The problem is, I want to disable remote access to my router admin page. So for example, if my ip address is 100.212.223.267, if I typed in my browser address bar, it would take me to my router admin page. How can I disable this to give access only for user in the internal network.

Thanks in advance.

Log in to the DIR-615 from a computer on your local network. On the DIR-615 web page, click on tools form the top bar and admin from the sidebar:

Make Sure the ENABLE REMOTE MANAGEMENT check box is unchecked. enable Remote Management.

Screenshot directly from the DIR-615 manual. Page 62.

There are two accounts that can access the management interface through the web browser. The accounts are Admin and user.

Admin has read/write access while user has read-only access.

User can only view the settings but cannot make any changes. Only the admin account has the ability to change both admin and user account passwords.

Thanks, but I still can see my router page by visiting my external ip address. I want access to it via router default ip 192.168.0.1 not from the outside world. Hope that help –  eamai Mar 25 '13 at 0:46

I believe if you remove the Admin IP address or * if it is set to allow any IP, you will not be able to access it from the internet. See Link. I hope this helps.

I don't want it to be accessed from WAN, it's too dangerous. I just want it to be accessed withing LAN network. –  eamai Mar 25 '13 at 0:31
    
correct see G Koe answer, but do not just disable it remove the IP address or I believe it will still allow access remotely(from the WAN) due to a bug in the routers OS. –  N4TKD Mar 25 '13 at 0:35
    
The remote management is used for remote management and not completely disable access from ouside world. It's too dangerous for me to chat on IRC since people can enter my router page with my IP address and with some bruteforcing, they'll get access to it. –  eamai Mar 25 '13 at 0:49
    
No I do not think they can access your router page unless it has remote management access why do you think they can? –  N4TKD Mar 25 '13 at 22:53
    
So, I've made some test. I tried typing my IP address from Starbucks public wifi and it goes straight to router page. So my only solution right now is to secure my router page by using strong password. Thank you –  eamai Mar 27 '13 at 1:46
