D-Link DIR-615 Firmware Upgrade to 4.11.
« on: January 09, 2010, 09:43:24 AM »

Hi all.
After Firmware upgrade to 4.11 some items disappeared.
I bought Router D-Link DIR-615, H/W Ver.: D1, F/W Ver.: 4.00. When I unpacked and configure it, one thing I changed was login name and password. Firmware version was 4.00 from October 21, 2008.
From http://www.dlink.cz/ I downloaded new firmware 4.00b02, Firmware rev. D, November 11. 2008 and flashed router with it. After login to webconfig firmware was older then before. Then I downloaded from http://www.dlink.co.uk newer firmware DIR-615 Hardware Revision D1 dated April 14. 2009. After successful flashing some new items adds but some item disappeared. Now Im unable to set WPA2 only or is unable to change login name, only 2 items for password are displayed. Now firmware version is 4.11 from March 2. 2009.
Have you any solutions how to bring back all items?

Try to flash the router using the emergency page.
Alternate Install Method using Emergency Room Web Interface
1. Do a Hard Reset (aka 30/30/30 reset):

    * With the unit powered on, press and hold the reset button on back of unit for 30 seconds
    * Without releasing the reset button, unplug the unit and hold reset for another 30 seconds
    * Plug the unit back in STILL holding the reset button a final 30 seconds

This procedure should be done BEFORE and AFTER every firmware upgrade/downgrade.

Plug the ethernet cable that connects your computer, that was plugged into one of the 4 LAN ports, into the WAN port on the router !
2. Setup your PC with static IP - ex: (different from
3. Make sure the PC has the following file:
Unpack it and place the "DIR615_v4.11_B02.bin" in a folder of your choice (c:\new\DIR615_v4.11_B02.bin)
4. Open your web browser and get it ready to connect to
5. Press and HOLD the reset button on the router and connect power. Hold the reset button for about 3~5 seconds, then release.
6. Connect the browser to . The Emergency Room Updating Firmware screen should display.
7. Browse to and upload the DIR615_v4.11_B02.bin image file.
8. When you see the message "IMAGE UPLOAD SUCCESS", the flash will begin to be erased and re-written.
9.  Use your browser to connect to the router at
The Dlink setup screen should load. If not, you did something wrong. Go back and try again.

Setup your internet connection(dhcp or whatever the case)
Change the IP address of your PC back to automatic configuration.
At the Wireless Security Mode
Security Mode    :   there are 3 options

Disable wireless security
Enable WEP wireless security
Enable WPA/WPA2 wireless security(enhanced) - THIS IS THE ONE YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE


WPA/WPA2 requires stations to use high grade encryption and authentication.
Cipher Type : AES
PSK / EAP    : PSK
Network Key :  WHATEVER YOU WISH - GET A UNIQUE KEY FROM HERE:https://www.grc.com/passwords.htm

Some of the fields in the latest 4.11 firmware were replaced or removed. They're gone from this fw. You don't need them.
Forget what I said about flashing using the emergency page. You just wanted to know about the 'missing' items in the configuration page. They are not needed anymore. The settings you see it's all this fw has and all you need. Nothing more.

Hello Everyone.

I am having trouble here. I can do a 30/30/30 (hard) reset on my DIR-615 D2 and I upload the latest firmware, and the emergency room page says Everything is fine. But after that I cannot access the router at all. everytime i enter the routers address IE says 'cannot display the webpage'
I know its probably a laymen mistake, but I cant figure out whats going wrong.
Any help would be gladly appreciated, as my girlfriend is getting very angry with me over our poor wifi signal!
