In the Administration area of the router, you have the option to do a Firmware Upgrade. Once there, you can browse to the firmware file you'd downloaded earlier. No need to use any program other than the smarts within the router itself. DON'T do anything while the router is upgrading firmware!

Very slow wifi connection from router dlink dir-600


I had this issue also. If rebooting the router does not improve or trying a new cable between your router and internet modem, you will have to do a factory reset. You can do this by logging into the router and selecting factory reset by locating a small hole on the back of your router, insert the tip of a paper clip for about 10 seconds with he power on, and this will reset your router to factory settings and of course you will have to set-up everything from scratch.
Maybe do a firmware update at the same time.
Usually you can login on your browser to you router and go to the management section to check for firmware updates and select that button and it will download and install the firmware. On some models, you have to go to the D-link web site and look for firmware updates for your router. Always check what you current firmware you have installed and check the version of you router modem (A, B, C etc). Then you can manually download the firmware (usually in a ZIP file), open the zip file, and then using your browser connected to the router look for Update Firmware. You will have to go to where (folder) you saved the downloaded update and select that file. It is recommended that you update using a LAN connection and not a wireless connection.

Trying to configure my Linksys WRT120N router, but when I click 'Save Settings' I get an error message (324). What's wrong?


I think you can try upgrading the firmware on your router,

Connect the computer to the router.
Download the latest firmware.
Open the setup page of the router and upgrade the firmware.
After upgrading the firmware, reset the router and reconfigure it manually.

See How to upgrade firmware on Linksys router.

I just purchased a new router. How do I download the latest firmware available for my WRT120N Wireless Router?


There was firmware just released 2 days ago for that router, you definitely want to upgrade it.

Once downloaded you need to log into the router, go to the maintenance tab / advanced tab and look for upgrade firmware. Then you just point it to this file I have linked for you and it will upgrade!

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.

Here is the download for the firmware:

My linksys wrt120n will not reconize the road runner modem when the ethernet cable is hooked up to it


This router has lot of issues with the firmware. Firmware is the software of the router. First thing you need to do is upgrade the firmware of the router.
If you connect your computer directly to the modem it will go online. Download the firmware of the router from the web site www.linksys.com/download .

Now connect the computer and the modem to the router. open the router set up page. upgrade the firmware. After upgrading the firmware, reset the router for 30 seconds . Unplug the power and plug it back in. wait for 1 minute and reconfigure the router.

Running slow


Is it running slow on both wired and wireless connections? how about if a PC is wired directly to the modem? That will eliminate the router as the issue (slow internet could be your modem or the connection itself).

If you're sure it's the router (wireless and wired) then upgrading the firmware would be first step. You can download the latest firmware from linksys.com and get it installed via the web interface of the router (probably found by going to http://192.168.1.1).

If a firmware update doesn't do it you can change your DNS servers from being automatically detected from your ISP to public ones. This may help web pages load faster. You can enter them also using the web interface. Set the Primary and Secondary DNS address to the numbers below (they are from OpenDNS.com).

Primary 208.67.222.222
Secondary 208.67.220.220

Somebody installed windows live on my computer i now have msn as my desk top i want to go back to google classic


Hi. I am assuming you are talking about the page that Internet Explorer goes to when you first open it. If that is the case, try this:

Windows Vista (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. Click the arrow to the right of the Home button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4aa01e82-2732-4ac7-b246-a06c904f2c2c&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then click Add or Change home page.
In the Add or Change Home Page dialog box, do one of the following:
• To make the current webpage your only home page, click Use this webpage as your only home page.
• 4. To start a home page tab set or to add the current webpage to your set of home page tabs, click Add this webpage to your home page tabs.
• To replace your existing home page or home page tab set with the webpages you currently have open, click Use the current tab set as your home page. This option will only be available if you have more than one tab open in Internet Explorer.
5. Click Yes to save your changes.

Windows XP (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Programs or All Programs, and clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. On the pull-down menus at the top of the window, click the Tools menu and choose Internet Options (if the Tools is not showing at the top of the page, you can access it using the Tools pull-down menu located on the right side of the window).
4. To make the current webpage your home page, click the “Use Current” button.
5. Click OK to save your changes.

Hope this helps!
