DIR 879 - Rebooting time process
« on: August 04, 2018, 01:05:02 PM »

Hi everyone, hope to get some advise here.
I hace a DIR-879 that in the last 3 months has been working totally wierd. It has been dropping and losing conection.
I have already installed its most recently firmware, eventhough, the same problems continued.
I tried many times to reboot it to factory settings. I have done the 10 seconds  reset button technique and also the 30/30/30s, however it just entres into a blinking orange light and keeps blinking for hours and nothing happens.
Could anyone she me some light on that?

  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

I would try to get to the recovery mode and re-load initial FW back on the router:
Emergency Recovery Mode
If this fails, you need to phone contact D-Link support...

30-30-30 resets do not work on D-Link routers. Please follow this for doing any FW updates:
