D-Link DIR-655 :: Can't Configure Router After Firmware Update
May 16, 2013
I updated my dir-655 firmware to 1.36WW after the update I the router has been restored to factory settings and every time I try to change any setting it gives me: "ap should not be locked before configuring". I cant change set any configuration, cant change even the router time!I logged in to the router as admin and left the password blank.
I'm running a D-Link DIR-655 Hardware Version A3, Firmware Version 1.21. In the past, it has been flaky, and I considered updating to the latest firmware (1.3+ something), but everywhere I read (mainly this forum) said it might be WORSE for the router and couldn't even be downgraded, so I decided to ride it out.
Eventually the problem disappeared and I forgot about it, but now it's back with a vengeance. Recently I opened up a Guest Zone so my neighbors could borrow wifi, and I occasionally run torrents. Torrenting seems to definitely crash the router overnight, while it also seems to randomly bug out, possibly when the neighbors are using the Guest Zone. The Guest Zone might be responsible, but I have no idea.
For what it's worth, I don't think my neighbors are terribly tech-savvy, so I doubt they're filesharing or doing anything risky. They might have malware installed, but I don't know.
Is there a way I can diagnosis my precise issue, should I go ahead and update to the latest firmware to try?

i just got a new TP Link TL-MR3040 V1.0.While setting up the router page on wireless and saw the firmware is an old version 3.12.11 build 120328 ref. 63398.Did a check on the TP link site and there is a new firmware update TL-MR3040_V1_120822.I have downloaded the new firmware but dont know how to do it. Read the confusing "how to guide ......" but was stated "Do NOT upgrade the firmware via wireless connection"
Question : how to connect with LAN wire ? Try plugging btw the computer LAN and the router LAN.... can't access the 192.168.0.1
Question : any proper step-by-step guide on how to update the firmware?
I have REV A and the firmwars version is 1.04. I want to upgrade to ver 1.35. I have downloaded the firmware to my computer. When I login to the router page and go to the firmware tab, when I try to click browse for the file nothing happens. I have tried using Internet Explorer and Firefox.
I have a DIR-615 router, hardware rev. C1 running firmware v. 3.10, dated 4/17/09. I've been beating my head against the wall trying to get this router to properly forward ports for a bit torrent application, but it not only won't do that, it doesn't want to save DHCP reservations and it doesn't want to recognize my computer on the LAN if I set a static IP address (although it does allow my computer to connect and get an internet connection). From the D-Link website, the description of firmware update 3.12NA looks like it might take care of these problems, but I can't get the router to update. When I log into the router and check for updates, it returns a message saying the latest update is v. 3.11, dated 9/15/09. However, when I attempt to download the update, nothing happens. The D-Link website offers update 3.11NA (4/20/09), 3.12NA (3/8/10), and 3.13NA (9/30/10). Why does the website offer me a different update than the router itself? I downloaded 3.13NA and unzipped the folder, which has a text file and a .bin file; I presume the latter is the update. However, when I browse to this file and attempt to upload it to the router, nothing happens. How the heck do I update this router?
My roommates and I keep getting knocked off the internet every few minutes on the router so I've tried a bunch of the tricks found here and am trying to also update the firmware. I downloaded the newest firmware, uploaded it to the router and it says it succeeded in the update, but then after reboot gives the same version it came with.
I tried to proceed with the update of the firmware on my DIR-835 router. I want to install version 1.0.2 of the firmware.I tried without success with Chrome and IE9. I get to a blank page and nothing downloads IE9 A PDF file is downloading but not the firmware update itself
updating to 2.03NA seems to be working for a lot of people. Anyway, my current NAT type is Strict ugh. I used to have a DIR-615 router. Man oh man that worked so well. But I had to replace it since it conked out after a 6 year stint.
I just bought my DIR-825 from Frys and it came stock with 2.02NA B1 firmware, but everytime I try to update it to 2.03/2.04/2.05/2.06 it errors saying it might not be the same hardware or something on the lines of that. But now when I try to upload it, it just leads me to "192.168.0.1 was interrupted" and can't even get to the error screen now.I'm not too savvy when it comes to routers, especially a D-Link since previously I had a Linksys WRT54GL
Currently running firmware version 1.32NA on DIR-655 (hardware version A4). I have made multiple attempts at updating its firmware, first to 1.33NA and later to 1.34 Beta 3, with no success: on each occasion, it accepts the local .bin file upload, then claims to be in the process of applying the upload (with I think an 80 second countdown), and eventually comes back to the login page, still showing that it's running firmware v1.32NA (verified after logon, refresh, etc -- no update was applied). I have attempted this immediately after a soft reset of the router and even after a hard (power cycle) reset, but still no success.
(Any reason to think that the update might work if performed while the router is disconnected from the Internet? or after a configuration reset?
I bought my DIR-825 three months ago. The firmware seem to be from 2009, and the check-for-later-firmware functionality from the web interface tells me that my version (Current Firmware Version : 2.01EU) is the latest.
I don't believe that the firmware from 2009 is the latest, but have no idea on how to proceed.
My hardware in the web interface say this: (Hardware Version: B1 Firmware Version: 2.01E
The problem I really have is related to PPTP pass through (I think), but I thought making sure I have the latest firmware is always a smart move.
So, can the firmware-checker of the web-interface fail, or do I have the latest firmware?
I've been having wireless range issues lately with my dir-615: a lot of holes seemed to have popped up in my house despite nothing changed (house or router location). This is after at least 2-3 years of good coverage and no issues. Went to look at the firmware & found 2.0 installed. Found out online that (I think) firmware is now at 4.11. Tried to download and install but both finding the update and unzipping it proved challenging. Specifically for the latter, unzipping kept yielding more zipped packages, like a russian doll
The firmware update went smoothly The mydlink service quit accessing the camera, until I download and ran the updated Mac version of the "mydlink Setup Utility v1.0.06_07272011"Seems as if the camera is more stable; ping times are more consistently low.
I read the sticky related to firmware updates. I have a DIR-655, that has been been giving me good service for quite a few years. I subscribe to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy as I have managed to keep my home network and computers running over the years, but I'm not knowledgable in these matters. I am still running firmware 1.10, and have not wanted to take a chance that if I upgraded I would find myself with numerous devices with no connectivity (running mix of Mac and PC desktops and laptops, XBox, Wii, Roku box, numerous iPhones and iPods, LG TV, and an iPad).
Recently I moved to the cable company phone, and they added a new modem. They have it set as a gateway (I think that is the terminology), and my network works basically as it did before. I have noticed though, that my Roku box, laptops, and skype on my Mac desktop seem to be having periods of slower download (Roku box), skype choppiness, and download that stop. I was thinking that perhaps if I upgraded the firmware, my performance might improve. After reading the sticky, it seems like firmware may not be the answer. This is a reliable but older piece of equipment, and now I'm thinking that I just need to upgrade to a newer and perhaps more advanced router.
I am using DIR 615 Hardware Version JX... When I check for an update to FIRMWARE I get the following message, "Did not get information".In the past when I clicked on there may be a firmware update on our site. I was taken to [URL] which gave me an 401 error and now redirects me to the US d-link page. Which doesn't even list Rev Jx as an option.I am having a lot of trouble with this router in regards to VPN and must have in China, and am hoping an update is available. [code]

I have version 1.1 and d/l'd firmware 111125. The upgrade ran successfully to 100% and then I got the login screen again. However after checking, then restarting to factory default the version displayed was still the old one
I just downloaded and tried to apply the latest Firmware update to my dcs-930l. It failed or timed out. Now the camera is unusable. I tried the hard reset, several times, holding it in for 10 seconds after 3 seconds did not work. I held it in for 3 seconds, waited 1 minute, and just got a flashing red light. I did the same thing after holding reset in for 10 seconds. I have unplugged and replugged in the network cable on both ends several times and turned the power off and on on the router and camera several times. The camera only blinks with a red flashing light. Is it a brick now? Is there any other magic tricks to try?
I tried to update my firmware on my DIR 615 by clicking the check now button within the routers parameters and got the file DIR615C1_FW311NAB04.bin The update bombed. I have hardware ver. C1 Firmware ver. 3.11NA dated June 23, 2009.Should I try and install the other firmwares in subsequent order, i.e. ver 3.11NA (dated 7/15/2009), then ver. 3.12 and then ver. 3.13 Or should the latest and greatest cover them all?

I have a DIR-655 router running 1.21. The last couple of years, I've always been checking the firmware version by pushing the "Check Now" button on the web management - it has always responded with "This firmware is the latest version. " I've been researching networking monitoring tools and came across this link: [URL] It requires that you update to the latest firmware - and this time I sued on the on-line link - and it turns out that the firmware version for my device is actually 1.35NA?So... first question is - why does my router tell me that 1.21 is the current version?I'd like the network widget - what are pros/cons of updating from 1.21 to 1.35NA?Have there been fixes to the scheduling portion? - 1.21 cannot handle 24-hour time properly. I also have to reset the router daily - sometimes more often - due to problems when used wirelessly. (Fortunately I try to use wired as much as I can.)

Like many others with the W8968 Modem Router we are experiencing sudden disconnections from the internet every 1/2/3 hours with the only way to cure the problem is to hard reset the modem router. For your tech staff on the phone to say 'I'll just have to do this" is completely unacceptable.I have used 3 other modem routers with the exact same setup flawlessly with no disconnections so it's 110% the modem routers problem.I'm pushing this message for you, TP-Link, to release a new firmware version to fix this problem.
I also believe there are other problems incorporating port forwarding,etc aside from this major flaw.I used to believe TP-Link was a trusted and great company but after my experience I'll be thinking otherwise.
Received a replacement DCS-930L today; using WPS, did setup wirelessly; all OK. Then did firmware update wirelessly (with second, DCS-932L, turned OFF). The v1.03 firmware file was the same one I previously used, I think. Amazingly, The camera menus are now in French, and I can't find a setting to change it to English.
My dcs 2121 ip camera was working fine till I tried to update firmware 1.05(update_DCS-2102_DCS-2121_1.05_patch01_4927.bin). The IE screen mentioned update was ok(Firmware update successful:The camera will now reboot, please wait for 0 seconds) but my IP camera never come back after reboot! the red light in front never goes off. The camera is connected to my Windows 7 PC directly through a a network cable. no able to rest the camera as well .
My SRP527W has never had its firmware upgraded since purchase. I had a need to do this recently, but could not find the section under Administration for Firmware upgrade.The only two items under Administration are Time Setup and Switch Setting.I've tried different browsers, to make sure that was not an issue, with no success. Any direct URL to the modem web interface that might allow me to update the firmware. url...Otherwise is there another method using a USB stick or tftp or similar?
Had just purchased a new DCS942L unit and had it setup fine. Registered it on the web and the web stated that it needed a firmware update. Connected with hard line and started update. After 5min webapp said device timed out. When I went to rest camera could no longer get a connection of any kind.

This router worked fine until I updated the firmware downloaded from the TP-Link site. I have V1 hardware which is what the firmware was created for. Since the update the wifi continually kicks outs quite often rendering this router useless.

have TL-WDR4300 router hardware v1 but when update to the latest firmware it became unstable and disconnecting so I had to return back to older firmware the new firm ware released 12/25/2012 and it is noted for TL-WDR4300(UN) V1 my model is TL-WDR4300 V1 not (UN) so what is different between the two
1 - Motorola Modem (horrible ISP) 2 - Dlink DIR 655 wireless router (about 2-3 years old) 3 - 2 laptops (windows 7/both) 4 - DirecTV broadband box (can't remember how that hooked up to the router?) 5 - Playstation 3 6 - (3) DTV sat receivers
The problem started while trying to connect the PS3 to the existing network. Only one laptop is wifi, the other laptop and Ps3 are in my room and wired in to the router, and the strange little DirecTV box is in the wired mix(for on-demand i guess?) The PS3 could not log-in to the PSNetwork(still can't), but it could browse the web just fine. So I start manually typing in IP addresses, 6 IP's in all, including the sharing of 3 DTV boxes that show up on the network on my admin laptop. Didn't work, so I get into the DLink router URL and start opening up ports that PSNetwork uses. At this point I think I have it figured out, then I did a firmware update on the router. My laptop, the PS3(internet, no PSNetwork) and even the little DTV box was working fine, all wired in, using 3 of the four ports. The old lady's laptop in the living room not only couldn't get on-line, it couldn't detect a wifi network? So try to set up a new real quick before I left this AM.. No beans!! I looked at the specs for the router, the firmware is up to date but from early 2010, and the features say "NO" to gaming support..
Do I get another router that can handle all the devices and is PS3 friendly, if that's even a thing!? I can't roll back the firmware update cause I wasn't able to back up the settings, and honestly theres a good chance I did something really bad as far as trying to tweak that router to open up ports for the specific IP address that goes to the game console. We'll call it 126.96.36.199. When I thought I was finished, the PS3 IP address had switched to 188.8.131.52? So it dropped down a number, I thought it was static, and all my efforts were for the --99 IP address, basically I have network issues consisting of Satalite tv boxes, a public DTV share folder, a video game console, one wired and one wireless, and a router that I WANT TO SET ON FIRE!
