Title: DIR-645 emergency flashing - how to
Post by: ctny on February 16, 2014, 11:40:16 PM
Dir-645 emergency room firmware recovery mode is different.

I finally fixed my router after a firmware update bricked it. It was just flashing the WAN / Internet / global / earth light after power on, whether I was pressing the reset button or not...

1. connect your computer to a router lan port, and manually set computer IP to anything other than AND (e.g., set up the subnet mask to, no need to set gateway or dns).

2. power off the router, then power on again. The power light should be green, and the WAN light would be blinking green.

3. browse to, you will see the "emergency room" page. You can only upload a new firmware bin file on this page.

4. After upload, you will see a 90-sec countdown page, after 90-sec, the web browser will try to reload. In my case, the update actually took like 3 min, so just wait a bit longer even if the browser fails to reload.

5. After a successful update, the power and wireless and wan lights should all be steady green.

So isn't the address for the Emergency room on the 645?

I added a link to this here as well:
