Author Topic: Firmware Security upgrade interrupted. Double Solid Orange Led Indicator  (Read 187 times)

Hardware: DIR-850L  H/W A

Story - Washing machine jumped breaker and power was cut from house during firmware update.

Problem 1 - Unable to access router gateway and ipconfig indicates the gateway is that of my modem. Currently LAN internet still working however wifi is down

Led Indicators - At the beginning was able to trigger the flashing power LED <Indicates that I was able to do a firmware recovery but not aware of it at the time> however I power cycled and it became 2 solid orange lights.  https://i.imgur.com/eCUYJ5H.jpg  (Looks green because of bad camera, but 100% it's double solid orange, however the top tip of the power button is a bit green) Even when I unplug the internet cable the internet indicator is still a solid orange. As well when I power cycle the router, instantly solid double orange indicator and instant internet connection as well.

Problem 2 - Was able to trigger the flashing power led again later however power cycled again because a family member needed to get some work done. Now it's stuck on double solid orange again and it seems like no reset and power combination is able to trigger the emergency flashing firmware recovery power led.


What I'm hoping to find - A solution to my problem, the right combination for a firmware recovery for my specific router, someone to tell me I done-zoe'd my router so I can go buy another one.

Thank you to all for taking your time to reading and help diagnose my problem

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • What region are you located?

Run thru this and see if you can recover the router:
 Emergency Recovery Mode
You'll need to download the current version of FW for the router first.

Depending which Rev you have, I would download v1.14 for Rev A or v2.07 for Rev B, and load that FW version first in the recovery mode. If you can get it recovered, then use the normal method to update to most current version of FW using the routers web page.

Hardware Version A
Region Canada

I downloaded 1.15 from the Canadian site, should I be downloading 1.14 from the American Site?

As well, the above method didn't trigger the blinking led for the firmware recovery however I was able to trigger it before but don't recall the methond(by luck)

Ok, Seems like the router is now dead. I presume the power supply is good. You might check voltage and amps at the tip. Sometimes these can go bad.

Look into getting a new router I guess.  ;)

We ll the 868L is EOL now. I would get into something newer, maybe find a DIR-882 or 878, something along those lines. The 868L was a great router. Had on bug that never go fixed though in QoS.  :(

Do you use QoS any?
Whats your ISP speed UP and down?

A few more $ you could get you one of these:

Something thats not EOL and still being supported...

Re: Firmware Security upgrade interrupted. Double Solid Orange Led Indicator

150 up/150down

Thanks, I'll trust your opinion and buy this instead. Just curious how often do new routers get pumped out? Once a year? 5 years? 10 years?

Ya, unfortunately the QoS bug would effect your speeds. I would not recommend it.

Every couple of years or so. Kind of depends on new tech and such and security issues found. Routers should last for a few years at least.
