Chinese to English Language

(1/3) > >>

Purchased a DIR-816L in Shanghai where I currently am based but as I can't read Chinese I'd like to change the language to English. Couldn't find an English language pack to download on Dlink downloads area for the router, is there another way?


* What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under router.
* Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.

thanks for the reply.

Sticker is also in Chinese but I can see B1 and V2.00(CN) if that helps.

Lets go here:

Select DIR from the left side drop down menu.
Select 816L from the right side drop down menu.

Download the following file:
DIR-816L B1 v2.03 for WW

Do the following while hard wired LAN connected to the router please:
Use IE or FF to do this.
Disable all browser security add-ons and any PC security SW temporarily.

Factory reset the router using the routers web page option under Tools/System.
Upload the DIR-816L B1 v2.03 for WW .bin file.
After the upload completes and the router comes back to ready, Factory reset the router using the routers web page option under Tools/System once more and then set up from scratch.

The UI should be in English now.

Let us know how it goes...

Didn't work.

I downloaded Firmware: DIR-816L B1 v2.03 for WW the saved file is called: DIR816L_FW203b03.bin

Turned off all antivirus etc.
Using IE I reset to factory default
I uploaded the firmware file using the firmware upgrade section, the router successfully upgraded to B1 v2.03 and restarted with the UI still in chinese.
I reset to factory default again but the UI is still in chinese.
Reset again just in case, still in chinese.

What do you suggest?
