D-Link Router Kepps Blinking When Reset

Whenever I try to reset my D-Link 3210 router, it keeps blinking. So I don't think it has reset because the support site told me to wait and it should stop blinking but it hasn't. What should I do?

    Blinking status light. Are all of these modems junk after a year?

  • guerrillagas May 11, 2010

    This is the upgrade procedure Dlink gave me , not sure if this is the bootstrap mode. ??
    -Set the IP address on your PC to and subnet of A default gateway and DNS are not needed.
    Power off the Router.
    -Hold a paperclip in the reset hole and hold it in there.
    -Power up the unit and continue to hold the reset. After 30 seconds remove the paperclip.


    -Now try to access the configuration page. You should be greeted with a firmware upgrade page.
    -Now browse the firmware and click send.
    -After the upgrade is finished, power off the router for 30 second than power it back ON.
    If this isn't the Boostrap method can you post it or send a link?

    Thanks :)

    I couldn't reflash the firmware. Go a message back from Dlink Tech support with a proceedure for flashing the bios. I'm waiting for next steps from Dlink tech support.

WHat is happening is the flash memory on the router is currupt and can't be reflashed.

I was finally able to reflash the device, and after I did same problem again. But this time only the basic firmware page comes up.(when the flash is currupt)

ANd every time I try to flash the new firmware it fails.

    Well, for me when I get the router in reboot mode, there is also a bootstrap mode allowing you to update the firmware.

    Its not easy to get into, but its one of the initilization steps the router takes. It wasn't easy for me to get into it, buit that is when I was able to flash to firmware.

    The bootstrap mode comes up when you manually do it, or when the firmware cant load.

    If the bootstrap mode cant flash the firmware then the flash is currupt.

    THe difference between normal mode and bootstrap mode is that router pages requires a password in normal mode.

You may want to try resetting the modem and router. The only light that should be blinking should be the data light. A steady blinking link light typically indicates the router is attempting to establish a link. Modem may need a reset or potentially a problem on your ISP's side.

First, unplug everything. This means, remove all your equipment from any power connection. Many people think that just turning a piece of equipment off and on will solve the problem. Actually as long as the equipment is plugged in, there is power to the circuits this prevents a complete reset.
Now, after maybe 30 seconds, plug in the modem and the router and then turn on your computer (I'm assuming there is at least one computer wired to the router). If the lights keep on blinking, push the reset button in the back of the router to try to reset it.
If these two things don't work, you can assume the router has been damaged, possibly by a power surge and must be replaced.

Wont reset and has erratic blinking lights. Tried power reset, reset button, etc.

Does the power light blinks when you press the reset button?
If power light is blinking continuously then I think your router is not working and you need a new one.

My power light on my Netgear WGR614 wireless router keeps blinking & will not allow me access to the internet.I have unpluged it, pressed the reset button & the light keeps blinking.Any thoughts?

Maybe you had a power surge.

The reset button does nothing with the router powered off, basically you hold the reset button in for 30 seconds with the router powered on. Following this you will need to set up the router again as all settings will be reset to factory defaults, from the sounds of it though the router may be dead.

Another reset method is as follows;

1. With the router powered off hold in the reset button,
2. Keep the reset button in, power on the router, wait 30 seconds,
3. Keep the reset button in, power off the router, wait 30 second,
4. Release the reset button.

Did you have wireless disabled?

If you have access to a multimeter check the PSU is working correctly.

My wlan light keep going on and off on my wrt54g

Also check if the power light on your router is blinking. If it is blinking, that's an indication of hardware failure. To revive it, do a hard reset. Press and hold the power button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power. Wait for 30 seconds again before you plug it back in.

The PC will detect a closed loop within the Network cable so forget that. Sorry but the router is bad if you cannot access it and the reset button does not help.

D-Link DI-514 router not working after power outage

To reset your router, use the following steps:
  1. Press the reset button for 10 seconds. You can use a small object, such as a paper clip to hold down the button.
  2. Do not power off the unit while the router is being reset.
    The unit should now reboot, and once the WLAN light stops blinking the router should be reset.
  3. Open up your Web browser and enter in the address bar.
  4. For the login, enter admin as the ID and leave the password blank.
The router has now been reset.
