D-link dir-300 router always rebooting/restarting

I just set up a d-link dir-300 router, but it keeps on restarting every few seconds after i have set it up with the setup disk.

It keeps on restarting, so I can't really go inside the router to tweak settings.

Also note that this is the 2nd router of the same model that i had the problem (i had the first one replaced since i thought i was just defective) but since it happened again with the replacement, it think it must be something with my PC or network.

PS: I'm using a wired PC to do the setup

This is the fix from d-link:
Router rebooting itself d-link dir-300 router always rebooting/restarting - print.gif You may be experiencing trouble with a feature known as UPnP(TM). This feature allows Windows XP and Me machines to remotely open necessary ports for Internet Applications. You may try disabling UPnP (on the router AS WELL AS your computers) to see if this cures your reset woes. Log into the web-based configuration, access the Tools page, then the Misc. button. Choose the disabled button next to UPnP. Click Apply. You should no longer experience the frequent resets.Try disabling in XP first to see if that fixes issue.

To manually disable UPnP/SSDP in Windows 2000/XP/Vista:

  • Go to Start Menu-->Run...
  • Type "services.msc" and click OK
  • Find the service named "Universal Plug and Play Device Host" service
  • Click the Stop button to stop the service
  • Under Startup type, select Disabled from the pull-down menu and click OK
  • Find the service named "SSDP Discovery Service" and double-click
  • Click the Stop button to stop the service
  • Under Startup type, select Disabled from the pull-down menu and click OK

Had the same "frequent reboot, no reason" problem after 2 years after I bought it.
What helped a little was a factory reset (button on the back of the router), so I could at least access the web-interface without constantly being thrown out again.
The fix was to upgrade to the latest firmware (from 2.20EU to 2.33EUb01) in my case. Now the thing works like a charm again.

I have a dlink dir600. My problem is when i turn it on only power light glowing remaing not responding. Try reboot by click and hold the restart button at the back to use restore factory but no use it wont...

First reboot your modem(NOT the router), unplug for ten seconds and plug back in, wait til everything comes on. Now unplug the router, wait ten seconds and plug it back in. If it still does the same thing, reboot by holding the reset button down for 10 seconds and see if it restores to factory settings. If still no luck then there may be an issue with the router.

Dir-300 dlink router asking to reset to factory after installatio

there's an easy way to reset your router back to its factory setting... inspect the physical appearance of your router... there should be s small hole.... inside that small hole is a reset button

How to reset? ..... while the router is on...Using a small pointing object, much better if you use a paper clip..... insert the paper clip to the hole... press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds...

That's it your router will restart itself and the settings is back to its factory settings...

Hope that help you..
Much appreciated if you rate this help... thanks

Hi i have tried many times to get my ntl modem to work with a new all goes well til the save settings screen comes up then it says ethernet cable not conected or unable to detect modem..etc...

After you click 'SAVE', the router will restart itself.
While it is restarting, it briefly disables its Ethernet ports,
and your computer will report "not connected".

Wait 60 seconds, while the router finishes its restart,
and those Ethernet ports will be re-enabled,
and the pop-up balloon on your computer will close itself.
