[DIR-869] Update failed => bricked
« on: April 14, 2019, 03:16:38 AM »

Hello D-Link,
I'm sending you this MAYDAY  :-\

Looks like my update didn't go well, as I can see my rooter is brick and it's impossible to join it.

I read every step I can find on the internet.
Whatever I try, I start the router I have a orange fixed led for 8 seconds then it start blinking (orange bliking).
Ethernet cable plugged into port N°1. Manual IP is set and I can't ping it
I tried everything with the reset switch (with a paper clip) nothing is working so far.
I used tcpdump to capture traffic with Wireshark, I can't see ARP request but nothing more...

Any idea will be greatly appreciated ! :)
Thanks for your help

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.

Please try this:
Emergency Recovery Mode

If this fails, I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this.

We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email.
Let us know how it goes please.
