Can't find firmware to download?
« on: December 25, 2011, 08:03:53 AM »

So, a simple question really. Where can I download firmware? I've been trying to get it through the official site and downloads page, but everytime I click download, then click 'open' there's absolutely nothing in the zip folder (0 bytes).

Specifically, I'm looking for the D1 4.11 firmware. It's the one I've been using for about 2 years until needing to reset my router today. And as I forgot how to Hard Reset, I accidently reset everything deleting the firmware too, and I really need the D1 4.11 firmware back as it gave me no issues for 2 years!

Any help, or provided links would be fantastic. Cheers!

Resetting the router does not delete the FW. It only sets the router back to the factory defaults and removes any user configurations you may have set.

I didn't fully read the second paragraph about the FW deleting.  :-[

Too much something...  ???
Still doesn't explain the empty FW zip file from the download site, though.

Hi guys. I'm in the UK. and I tried pretty much every firmware just to see if any of them was available, but they wern't.

I was getting the firmware from the official page, here:

http://www.dlink.co.uk/cs/Satellite?c=Product_C&childpagename=DLinkEurope-GB%2FDLTechProduct&cid=1197319391320&p=1197318962293&packedargs=QuickLinksParentID%3D1197319391320%26locale%3D1195806691854%26packedargs%3Df9ffeaf4e83ab6d0166b8cc93b23ebbc3d83540f46ceb58f26706558f9479c4ec3df1411a95e2d40ad11206575581fc22bd5088af56051c987d64b73399cf16d&pagename=DLinkEurope-GB%2FDLWrapper

When I click 'Download,' then on the next page click 'Please Click Here to Download File,' the download window pops up asking me if I want to open or save the file. I click Open, but I've tried both, but even in the file description on this page it says the file is '(-1 bytes)'.





Is it possible for anyone to be able to download this file (the D1 4.11), and send it to me? Or at least know of another place where I can get it? I'd very much appreciate it!

Thanks for any help.

You're absolutely correct. . . the source file on the D-Link UK site is corrupt. I'll look around for another location hosting the same version.

I successfully downloaded the firmware from D-Link UK this morning. From the looks of things D-Link was having issues with their FTP site. The firmware file was not the cause, else the file modification date in the FTP website would be dated this week.  ???

Here is the direct link to the UK DIR-615 firmware repository: ftp://ftp.dlink.co.uk/dir_products/dir-615/

Furry - no, the router isn't working, cause I have no firmware on it.

And...

Java - cheers buddy! Just looks like I chose the wrong time to accidently delete my firmware :P

As FurryNutz pointed out, you did not delete your firmware (i.e. firmware can not be deleted from the router). More likely, you may have corrupted the existing firmware during a failed firmware update or the installed firmware was corrupted by some other event. In either case, the DIR-615 will fail to work if the firmware is corrupt.

I see. This is the older D-Link DIR-615 I have here by the way, not sure if that actually makes a difference. But I recall reading that by resetting the router the way I did, it completely wipes it (taking the firmware too).

Either way, I now have the right firmware here, but I can't remember how to install it! so I'll need to do a bit more reading...

Hopefully I'll get this all resolved tomorrow, bit late to do it now. Thanks for the replies anyway :)
