Dlink Firmware.

Question: Dlink Firmware.

I tired a search before but wasn't getting the right stuff. Same with google. Perhaps I am just being daft, but anywho, to the question at hand.

Do DLink Routers have 3rd Firmware like Many Linksys Routers have? If so, could someone please point me in the general direction? Thanks. Google, is not an acceptable answer The initial firmware that comes with it simply baffles me.

Thanks again

Preferred Solution: Dlink Firmware.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Dlink Firmware.

It depends on the router, and mainly what OS it's running. For example, there is custom firware for the DSL-G604 because it's running MontaVista linux to support the TI AR7 dsl chipset, but other Dlink routers may run other types of embedded OS which don't easily support 3rd party firmware design.

Likewise, the Linksys WRT54G and its variants are running a linux based OS, but other products such as the BEFSR41, while somewhat similar in hardware architecture, don't run the same OS which isn't as flexible to 3rd party modifications.

So it really depends what OS the product is running as to the easy of developing and installing custom firmware.

i just got a Dlink DI-514 wireless router and was wondering if this was one of those routers whose firmware can be upgraded so instead of 11 mbps it can peak at 44 mbps. if not, does anyone know the max speed that this router can reach? what kind of PCMCIA wireless card should i get to have maximum performance with this router? i would prefer something inexpensive, under 20, if anyone has one to sell i am interested.


Answer:Dlink DI-514 Dlink 802.11 2.4 GHz wireless router, firmware to 44 mbps?

Uh, go look on D-Links web page and find out. I'm sure it will say. If it will do the 44Mbit then you will have to get compatable D-Link 802.11b cards that can also do the 44Mbit. Again the information is on D-Links web page.

Anyone have version 1.8 firmware and is willing to upload it or send it to me? I've been trying for the past week and a half to get it but dlink's stupid ftp server is always down. I even sent a support email to them and they answered back after about 3 days and on top of it lied about fixing the ftp server..... . Google search turned up no mirrors except for driver station which had version 1.7 which I already have.

I just bought the dir-655 router, replacing my old dd-wrt router, based on very positive customer reviews on the internet. i have found the router performance degradation (longer internet latency) is pretty bad over several hours of light use and it quickly reached the state of unusable until I reboot the router. The problem does not exist on my older router. see the chart below.

I have turned off all advanced feature of the dir655 router, (QoS engine off, Wish etc) and didn't see improvement.

is this normal or I should need to replace another one?

Answer:Dlink dir-655 needs reboot (w/ latest firmware 1.21)

Well I just tested mine with speed test...
Before restart (been on for 6 days)

After restart.

Run a speed test to see how bad it is... Or does it even show up on a speed test? At this point I think you may have a bad router.

Does anyone know how to update the firmware on a D-link DI-804 router ? On the Dlink homepage they say that I have to open my web browser and go into the web configuration and click the "System tools" menu and select "Upgrade firmware", but there is no such menu ??

Does anyone have some links for a page that has some guides on setting up the firewall settings ?

Answer:Updating firmware on a Dlink router

Hey there,

OK, I don't know the specific models off the top of my head, but i assume this is universal for them, anyway, whether it's a wireless router or a regular router you will definitely need to do the firmware upgrade from a computer that has a direct wire connection to the router.

Now the rest is conjecture on my part. I assume it requires for you to first download the firmware upgrade onto the computer, and then you can log into the web utility on the browser so that now the menu should appear if it ain't there. If it's still not, check to see if you have any web filter programs going on. Otherwise, maybe you have to run the upgrade directly from the file.

Either way, I would highly recommend checking their support site for more information, possibly even a web forum. I haven't been there in a while so I don't remember what's on there.

None the less, I hope whatever information I gave you is helpful.

I flashed my DIR-825 to the new F/W 2.03NA.
Wireless is a little slower, but range is 15 feet further.
Could be due to local conditions.

Per all ports are stealth, not just closed!!

Any one else using it?
If so, what are your experiences?

Thank you in advance for your input.

Firmware tweaks or fixes code commands. So prior to your firmware update how was the wireless?

Hi guys .. I'm kinda new here.. I'm experiencing an annoying problem on my router .. Here's the problem ..
The router works well for some hours but suddenly the internet light/led on my router just turns off and the DSL led starts blinking (in attempt to make a connection ).. After 30 sec or so the DSL led turns solid green and the internet led turns red and vanishes after 2 or 3 secs..The dsl starts blinking again until internet led turns red again and vanishes again too.. This cycle continues for hours and i can't access the internet during this time.. This happens on a daily basis... I'm really fed up..I purchased the router a week ago .. I'm really frustrated by this...
I tried to do what everyone would ie, firmware update but there doesn't seem to be any firmware for my H.W version of the router...I'll upload a pic of the router version..
Plzzz help me to find a proper updated firmware for my router or a way to troubleshoot this mess..
Dlink DSL-2750U
H/W rev : A1

Answer:How to upgrade my DLINK DSL 2750U router firmware..

It would appear to me the problem doesn't lie with the router; rather, it's the DSL modem. I would suggest contacting your Internet provider initially, and asking them if there have been any outage issues, and perhaps checking out your modem. If that all works properly, plug a PC or laptop into the modem directly via Ethernet, and then run that for a while to see if that's stable.

Answer:my dlink wont let me update firmware am i suppose to connect

1st you need to download the firmware file, then you need to enter the router's menu to update the firmware. Open a browser window, type in the router's address, then enter the username & password to be able to access the menu. This is explained in your manual & at the D-Link website, unfortunately you didn't post the model number.

Thought this deserved it's own thread.

I'm returning to post a follow-up; This appears to be the root cause of my issues... on a number of seperate installs. (Setting the WAN Speed to 10 resolves some connectivity issues.

Dlink has posted the following information as of Sept 23.

The firmware that was shipped with the DI-524 has the WAN port speed set to 100mbps. This can prevent connectivity with some DSL and Cable modems. For this reason we have put together this article which explains how to change the setting so you can get a successful connection. Be assured that this inconvenience will be fixed in the next release of firmware which will be applied to future releases of DI-524.

We sincerely apoligize for the inconvenience!

Is it possible to replace a routers firmware w/ something other than the original firmware to update from wep encryption to wpa encryption and all the other features that these new routers have? If so is this hard to do and is there a big risk or really screwing things up?

Answer:Replacing router Firmware w/ third party Firmware?

nope its easy, and as long as your smart and follow the few basic guildlines very unlikely chance of damaging the router. Biggest suggestion is never do the update via wireless as if you loss signal or what not could loose a bit of data for the router update.

Question: DLINK dir-655

My Sony Tv was working fine with my Dlink DIR-615,but when I upgraded to the 655 it will not connect to the router. The connection is good ,it just dose'nt like this router. How do manually put in the IP address. I know where to enter it in the TV but can I give it an IP within my range of the router and copy over the rest?

Answer:DLINK dir-655

If it is wired you should be able to, I usually put my bravia on Static so its easier to do 'play-to' stuff with it.

Unless the connection is literally bad it should be as simple as adding in a static outside of DHCP scope, but within the subnet (or go static, and then provide a lease reservation for the MAC of the TV) then enter in the subnet mask used by the subnet, your router as default gateway, and whatever DNS you are using (from your ISP, your Router, or some public like googles /

The TV (depending how old) should have a network 'status'/diagnostic to tell you if it can hit the net and lan at that point.

Question: Dlink and VPN


I am currently working remotely and have been trying to log into my works network. They use Checkpoint Secureclient VPN software and I get errors. Previously another collegue fixed this up so I could work it, but unfortunately the set up guide is gone and the collegue is gone.

I understand that I had to change my modem IP address to and the subnet mask to, but I've tried this and my modem can no longer find anything, the connection stays as (modem ip address) and when I try to repair the connection (hoping it will change to 192....., it cannot find anything )..

Any help available on this?



Answer:Dlink and VPN

Changing the address on your modem doesn't really make sense to me. By modem do you mean the address of your computer? Does your internet access work? What are the errors? What is your network setup like?
From what I can tell it shouldn't make a difference what your internal network address is for VPN connections considering that both addresses are internal. Is there any more information you can add to the post?

Question: DLink DI-624

Just curious if anyone here cares to give this a quick review. Also just curious as to what is ment by this under the wireless section in the router setup

Authentication : Open System Shared Key WPA WPA-PSK

I am going to research this after the post of course, but I figured i would post the quesiton anyways.

I personally like the router, just want to see what other think, and what the best precautions are that can be taken to make it as secure as possible.

thx in advance


Answer:DLink DI-624

I have one, it works, no complaints, but I don't have anything to compare it to.

When you use WEP, you can use either open system or shared key. I'm not 100% sure what the difference is, but when I select shared key Windows wont prompt me for the network key when I try to connect. It's probably Windows' fault not the DI-624's.

WPA is more secure. If you don't have a radius server for user authentication you can use WPA-PSK which uses a pre-shared key to connect. Windows also has a problem using WPA. It's better with SP2, but I still get too many disconnects, so I just use WEP.

Recently the DIR-625 router in my house has been giving me problems. It started on Friday when I went to RDP into my Laptop from a remote location and the connection could not be made. I figured there was a problem with the internet connection, but when I got home all was well with the modem, and all of the lights on the router indicated that things were OK.

I looked at my Laptop and Windows indicated that the wireless network connection had "Limited or no Connectivity". I restarted the laptop and got the same results.

I ordered a DGL-4500 from DLinks Web Site because it was shown as in stock yesterday.

I just called to see why my order did not arrive (I ordered it Overnight P1). The nice gentleman looked in to it and found out that it is actually NOT available and is not shown in any DLink warehouse as available for shipment.

If you plan on ordering this from DLink, or anywhere else for that matter, I would do a phone order and verify it's existance.

Question: dlink router

Hey all,

Trying to connect to my dlink di-604 router. Network consists of 1 desktop and a laptop, both are running winxp home sp1.
Internet works fine without setting up behind the router. Cable modem is a surfboard Sb5100.
Both Pcs are configured for obtaining an ip address and dns server automatically. When i connect the router to the desktop and obtain an Ip address when connected through the router, I get a 169.x.x.x. (invalid ip address) OR i sometimes get my external IP address and I can connect to the internet using the desktop, while the laptop (if i connect it to the router) gets the 169 ip addy.

thx for your help

Question: Dlink 4100

The strangest thing just happened, this router has been rock solid for around 2 years. All of the sudden last night it just stopped working, but not completely. It allows me to ping and also get to google by IP and also search google. It only works with google though no other site. Yes I have rebooted it and all that fun stuff. I know its the router because i put another one there and it works fine. Tonight I'm going to do a firmware upgrade and also if i need to reset the router. Has anyone ever seen anything like this before?

Also i guess i should mention that recently (past 2 months or so) after a few days of being on i cant get into the interface and had to reboot it. So maybe it was slowly dying? The whole google thing just seems so strange to me.

Answer:Dlink 4100

Next time you can get into the admin settings, i would ensure that the configuration hasn't been changed. There are a few exploits going around that try to change the settings on your router to a different DNS and things.

Having some trouble with my router. Its almost a year old now, and up to this point has worked fine.

I cant access it at all, wired or wireless. Internet isnt working on it, and i cant connect to it by going to 192.168.1(the router says its and that didnt work either, but i dont normally put the zero in and it works fine).

Ive tried power cycling the modem and router, multiple times in different ways (modem first then router, disconnected from eachother, etc). Some of the lights on the router are not coming on tho. The power light comes on fine, the Status light comes on briefly if i power cycle, but it does not stay on(it should be solid) the internet light blinks(router says it should be solid indicating a connection...i think tho it normally blinks) and the network light blinks if i connect my laptop to it.(solid=connection blinking=traffic, based on the bottom of the router).

I have tried different cables, that didnt work. I tried using the reset button, idk if the router normally does anything indicating the reset button has been pressed, but i didnt see any indication. when connecected, the network icon the toolbar says its "connecting" with limited access.

Im connected now directly thru the modem. the LINK light blinks no matter where its plugged in, goes out if i disconnected the cable from it to the router/pc.

I got a DI-604 router for free from a friend, and was wondering if this network setup would work

I already have 1 DI-604 that is used for everything, wnat I wanted to do is use 1 DI-604 for just a router, and use another one as a DHCP server, both would be connected to a switch so no load would be going through them. I couldn't see any info on D-Links site on whether the router can operate as just a DHCP server or not. Any help would be appreciated.


Answer:DLink DI-604 Question

Yes it will work just fine for a DHCP server. Just plug in one of the LAN ports to the switch (you'll need a crossover cable if not autosensing). Make sure to disable the DHCP service on the other so you don't have two DHCP servers conflicting.

Of course, all DHCP clients will have their gateway set to that router, but if you're not using an internet connection on the network, that won't make much difference.

Question: DLink Router NAT

Can someone explain to me how my router can use NAT to simulate one computer, or one connection to the server? Im at college, and it is okay for us to have a router for multiple connections, but the internet login is needed for the internet to be accessed. I cannot use the PPoE to login. I need to login from my main computer, and allow the rest of my computers to have full internet capacity. I tried and cant seem to get it right. Here is a link to the manual if that helps explain things. Someone mentioned using a MAC address clone? I really havent had to do anything like this before and would appreciate any and all help.

Thanks in advance,

Answer:DLink Router NAT

The manual is missing a crucial picture. You should have a spot for a username and password on the same page you enter the ip address. That should be all you need to access the web with all systems using that router. Thats how my Linksys is...even though I don't need to login on my cable connection.

I have a DLink DI-624 Wireless router, 2 DWL G-520 wireless cards, and two laptops connected to the network. Also, one computer connected through that blue ethernet wire. I'm on Telus Planet's ISP.

Here's my problem: Everyweek, all the computers connected to the router in wireless, loses it's connection and it cannot connect. I have to go back to the main computer that is connected through a wire, go into the DLinks web bases set-up, go to WAN, hit apply, continue and it solves the problem. Is there any way I can fix this? It gets so annoying fixing this problem every week.
I think that the problem is with Telus's dynamic IP addresses. In the DLink set-up, I chose the Dynamic IP Address though.

Hmm, well I can't even do ipconfig/renew... it says that the request timed out. The "repair this network" function in winxp doesn't work either. Fails after trying to release/renew the IP. I tried going to the router's web interface,, and for a while I could navigate around the homepage along with some (but not all) tabs. When I tried to, say, save a setting, IE would bitch that it's working offline and needs to connect, then hands me the 404. Recently, it started to ask me for firmware upgrade when I try to go to Broken router? Any suggestions?

Answer:Help! DLink 604 not working :(

By default, that router is a POS... and yes I also have it. Are you sure you didn't change the default IP address? If not, then I'd recomment unplugging all your shit for a few minutes. Give it a try after that, and report back with success or failure.

If you already tryed that, then I'll hafta think some more, I hope I didn't insult you.

Actually, now that I think of it, how hot is it... It might just need a little rest. It sound supersticious, but leaving your shit off once in a while does it good.

There was an old thread about this, that seems to be closed, so I'm reposting -

I use a VoiP phone (Avaya) for my work at home behind a Dlink 655 router - the only other networked device is the PC. Voice quality varies widely, and frequently within the same call. Many times the voice quality is so poor, we just have to end the call.

I have read that the upload and downoad times should be about equal for good VoiP quality - but that isn't going to happen. So I'm trying to maximize the features on the router as much as possible.

I purposely purchased the Dlink655 because it has settable QoS options. So I can set the phone to the highest priority (the lowest number), and put its IP address in. What is the protocal used for Voip Phones ? Does anyone have any other suggestions for getting consistently, good voice ?

The download speed is much higher than the upload speed - which makes sense since I can easily hear the other person, but they can't hear me.


Answer:DLink 655 QoS configuration

Actually, VoIP normally takes from 30 to 90 kbits/sec bandwidth, depending on how high you crank the voice quality up.

This is probably not a bandwidth issue, unless you have really slow bandwidth on the upstream side.

Maybe you could do some tests. First off, post your speed test results from so we can see what you have.

Next, please run the following test.
Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

I got this setup and all the stuff to make the 108mbps work and it showed connected and all was good at 108 but no sites would open.. befor I did this the tech at D link recommended against it lol. Should I have gotten the Linksys G router with Dual antenna? Would it have been a better router? This D link only has one antenna wich is odd as the older ones had two. Thanks for any info.

Answer:DLink DI-624... Super G?

dual dipoles (antennas) have nothing to do with whether or not the AP/Client will communicate at the 108 Mbps signalling rate. Two antennas have to do with whether or not the AP supports diversity. Anyway, sounds like your associated but your either using WEP configured incorrectly or the Turbo G function is not working correctly. I'd back it down to standard .11g. That's going to be your most compatible solution and give you a baseline. Could be a couple of other things but make sure no security measures are enabled, standard .11g on both AP and client, and run an ipconfig /all from a dos prompt to find out if your getting an IP.

My son has a Westtell DSL modem. I have a Dlink wireless router DI-713P. When the two are connected I am able to surf the web. Cool huh.

Now here's the problem. Certain web pages are not accessible?? hotmail, MSU search engine etc.
I have looked at the setup configuration on the Dlink the IP address is a 192.168.blah.blah number confusing because I can surf other pages. I am unable to change the IP to an Internet ip address. The brain children at Bellsouth will not help because Dlink is not supported through them.

im using hp laptops with vista an xp.
thanks for your time

Answer:dlink trouble

I also have had a lot of issues with the DIR-615's. Personally the only way I got close to solving it was to replace the firmware with DD-WRT. but in the end I just went with another device.

I've had a Dlink DI 624 Rev C for like 2-3 years and it has worked absolutely amazing for me! After the past few weeks, my signal has become really low and unberable. My computer which is connected to the router, runs outstanding, but my wireless laptops, (2 floors up), run really slow. I don't understand, why all of the sudden, the signals have become really low. My atenna is still connected and working. I have tried different solutions, such as changing the channels, resetting the router, getting rid of 2.4 ghz phones. Can someone please help and come up with a solution? Thanks!

Answer:Dlink 624 messed up

Did the antenna's orientation get changed? If it's now pointing directly towards the computer two floors above that could explain the weaker signal.

Sometimes routers will work better after a reset to factory default settings and reconfiguration.

I have router DI-604 Ver.D1,
to the router are connected 2 PCs and router is connected with DSL modem

I HAD this problem,
on PC everyhing worked ok, on the other one sometimes yes and sometimes
i could't access to Internet i had to turn off and on the router and then it was ok for few hours/days.
On the router is no firewall, no filter as well on the PC's

Originally there was firmware Ver.3.06 so i updated on Ver.3.11
Afterwards PC which worked before, was still working, but PC with problems before couldn't access Internet at all.

So I went back to Ver.3.06, but during firmware uploading i got message, that router is not accesible.

Now one PC work still ok, but from other one i can ping other PC, but can not ping router
(and also can not access web interface for configuration).
I have a feeling like original IP address for router was change.

Anybody can help?


Answer:Dlink DI-604 not accessible

See what gateway the PC with operational internet uses. The gateway address is the router address.

I had everything working with the router, including newest firmeware updates, until i tried to do MAC filtering. It was taking along time to load so I shut down Internet Explorer and loaded it back up again (internet explorer) and typed and the internet explorer error page came up. At the bottom of that page it said DNS sever couldn't be resolved. Didn't know what to do so I hit the 'reset' bottom on the router to return the DI-624 back to factory defaults and I still can't get access to it by typing The login pop-up screen doesn't appear. what now...?

Answer:DLink DI-624 problem

try to get a fireware update.
cable your system directly to your HS modem, go to the vendor's site
and download your MODEL and VERSION specific update.

You can then recable to the router and attempt the update

Question: Vista & DLink NAS

Running Vista Beta 2. All seems fine accept I can not logon to my DLink DNS-300 Attached storage. The user & pass are perfect I can verify this from any number of WinXP machines on the same network. I've created new accounts on the NAS as well. Vista will allow me admin access into the control panel of the DNS-300 via IE & Firefox but reports an error when I try any of the user accounts as a user. It seems to insert the machine id infront of my user name & I think the DNS-300 doesn't like this. ie MYLAPTOP\MYNAME when my logon is MYNAME.

Any ideas anyone? Has anyone had problems connecting to NAS from vista?

Answer:dlink di 634 m. is it possible to change the mac add.

Hi and why would you want to change the MAC address?
Looking at your past messages I would tell you no you can not change a MAC address by a novice.

I still would like to know why you think you have to change it.

Okay, I've read thru the other posts but I still don't have an answer. (I probably just missed it cause my brain hurts)

Here it is: 1 pc running XP, 1pc running 98', connected with DI-604 router. Both individually have access to the internet and email.

Problem: Neither one of the pc's can "see" each other.

Desired result: I would like to be able to share all files and printers between both computers, full access from one to the other.

I am sure it is something simple that I am overlooking, please help.

Answer:XP / 98 pcs with Dlink router
