Device Has Been Bricked DIR 632A1

(1/3) > >>

I INCORRECTLY, managed to make this router upgrade its firmware to my old DIR 615c1 firmware. I had kept selecting the wrong firmware for the device, Now its bricked.

I cannot get any IP address under DHCP or manually for the device so i can log on and reinstall the correct A1 firmware for the device  :'(

Is there any tools Dlink has for unbricking devices relating to their DIR 632 routers.

This router is 2 days old and its already bricked. Not to sure if its human error or modem error, But when i selected the wrong firmware it hung for about 4 minutes before shutting of to restart then just never restarted.

Should i seek an RMA?

Please try the following crash recovery procedure:

[*]Place the proper firmware on the hard drive of a local PC
[*]Connect a network cable directly from the local PC to one of the rear router ports
[*]Unplug the power from the router. Hold in the reset button and plug the power back in. Continue holding for 10 seconds and then release.
[*]Statically assign an IP address to the wired computer in the same IP subnet range: 192.168.0.x (where x is any number between 2 and 254). Assign the computer Subnet Mask to
[*]Enter the IP address of the router ( in Internet Explorer
[*]The crash recovery page should appear. Browse to the location of the firmware on the hard-drive of the local PC and click the Send button.

Keep this for future reference:
Emergency Recovery Mode
If you can't get it working after trying the Recovery process, you'll need to contact DLink and get the router RMAd back to DLink for repairs. Keep us posted on how it goes.
