Have you try a hard reset? Hold down the reset button for 30 seconds then remove the power cable while still holding down the reset button for 30 more seconds. Finally, while still holding down the reset button, plug the power cable back in for 30 seconds and let go. It's a DLink, it's a lost cause. Just get an Asus and install Tomato firmware.

Dlink when update firmware need to shut off wifi before updating any unit of thiers

well great would have been nice for them to tell me but now i cant access the webpage and the wireless doesnt work at all. this will be the last time i buy anything dlink i have had nothing but problems with there crap adn it should be under warranty but no hell i would have been happy with dropped connections every now and then compared to this

gingerbee January 16, 2013 03:56 PM

what happen if router port 1 hooked (using stright cable not cross wired) only to computer what does ipconfig report

yeah update firmware isn't for novices, seems like a trick question

with flashing any router need to shut off wifi for it will interupt process

same as bios firmware in windows need to do in pure dos

This should work to flash over, just use the proper file. Should work on your asus too if it died from bad flash
