Title: Restore DIR-615 D1
Post by: LinkowyMaciej on February 02, 2010, 11:10:53 PM
Good day!

Yesterday I made a bad decission - I have installed DD-WRT firmware onto my new D-Link DIR-615. It causes some problems and I’d like to re-flash router with orginal firmware. After turning router on with Emergency Room mode and choosing right (as for me) image file I’m getting “Unable to upload the image, please make sure the uploaded file is the correct image.” information.

Firmware downloaded from: http://tinyurl.com/dir615firmware my hardware is DIR-615 HW D1

How can I fix my router? Which firmware file will be correct if not an original?

Best regards.

Generally, it's recommended to use the latest version of the router's firmware.

Which appears to be v4.11, for your revision of the router.

If that one fails too, try v4.10, as that one seems to be the original.

Thank you for reply. Unfortunately both versions won't work.

I'm running DD-WRT with DIR-615 D1 without any problem. I'm not sure which firmware version of DD-WRT you are using (I'm using the one meant for DIR-600) but you could try to re-flash the router using web interface as told in: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/DIR-600

Not sure if using web interface instead of ER helps...

You can find the firmware I'm using here:

http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=61155&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15

Find the first message written by j911, there is a link to firmware I use (you have to be logged in to be able to download firmwares). Some people are able to use official firmwares meant for DIR-615 D2, but I could flash my router with them. You can try those too if nothing else works.

I tried and I still can't upload any firmware. Is there any way to fix my router?

Best regards.

PROBLEM SOLVED!

This may sounds like a joke, but it isn't... I had to use Internet Explorer browser to correctly upload firmware. Nor Safari nor Opera was able to to this. I had to run my Mac in Windows and flash DIR-615 under Internet Explorer.

Thank you for your help!

If you have access to curl, a simpler solution than booting windows is:

Code: [Select]
url --form filename=@FIRMWARE.bin --form post=Upload\ firmware\ NOW 192.168.0.101
Where "FIRMWARE.bin" is the name of your local firmware binary. The "@" is required.

We presume that since this was 3 years ago, they have probably found the solution or moved on. Thank you for posting information and feed back. Hope it helps any current or future users.

I just registered to tell you DLINK didn't fix the issue described here. I tried to upload a new version in emergency mode and it never finished. Thanks to charleshaynes for posting his curl-solution (although there is a "c" missing in the command). This command worked immediately for me:

Code: [Select]
curl --form filename=@DIR600B6_FW217WWb01.bin --form post=Upload\ firmware\ NOW 192.168.0.1
Now wait for 90 seconds and try to load the 192.168.0.1 in your browser afterwards --> success

How was the command sent to the router? command line box?

Also FYI:
