Unable to update firmware

None of the dowloaded Versios for my DWL-G700AP work.
Current Firmware Version is 2.13
Tried 2.13B6, 2.20, 2.30b2
Nothing, always the same when clicking Apply:
"File is Worng !!"

Any Ideas?

Your router latest Firmware I can see on D-link website is 1.02
If you are referring to German web site page showing a dwl-g700ap_fw_revB_v213b06.zip file be sure to follow the instruction to UNZIP the web_dwlg700ap_v200_r11_0408.bin file:
DWL-G700ap Firmware Update

- Browser starten
- Konfiguration des DWL-700ap aufrufen (Standard IP 192.168.0.50)
- oben auf Tools
- links auf Firmware
- auf den Knopf Durchsuchen klicken
- die Firmware Datei (web_dwlg700ap_v200_r11_0408.bin) auswählen
- auf Apply klicken

Wenn die Firmware installiert und der DWL-700ap dann neu gestartet ist klicken Sie oben auf Tools/System/Restore to Factory Default.

Danach ist die Firmware übernommen.

If you did not unzip the bin file router cannot run it as firmware update
More over be sure to run the update via LAN cable connection (no WLAN)

How do I set security on my DWL-952


There are 2 possible areas raised by this question. The first is a security patch needed to fix the firmware of your router, which by the way is not dwl-952. Your router is a di 954. Dwl 952 is a bundled router and network interface. The details of the firmware update are below.

Security patch for your D-Link router
These firmware updates address the security vulnerabilities in affected D-Link routers. D-Link will update this continually and we strongly recommend all users to install the relevant updates.
As there are different hardware revisions on our products, please check this on your device before downloading the correct corresponding firmware update. The hardware revision information can usually be found on the product label on the underside of the product next to the serial number. Alternatively, they can also be found on the device web configuration.
Please make sure you follow the firmware install guide provided within the ZIP firmware package.
DI-524 Revision E1/E3Thu, 28/11/13
The new firmware 5.13b01 that fixes the security vulnerabilities
DI-524 Revision Ex 5.13b01
Please note: please unzip the file and use the file DI524Ex_FW513B01.bin to update firmware.
DI-524UP Revision A1/A2Thu, 28/11/13
The new firmware 1.08b02 that fixes the security vulnerabilities
DI-524UP Revision Ax 1.08b02
Please note: please unzip the file and use the file DI524UPAx_FW108B02.bix to update firmware.

The second possibility is to set the local security on your network.

From the wikipedia page:
Wireless security is the prevention of unauthorized access or damage to computers using wireless networks. The most common types of wireless security are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). WEP is a notoriously weak security standard. The password it uses can often be cracked in a few minutes with a basic laptop computer and widely available software tools. WEP is an old IEEE 802.11 standard from 1999 which was outdated in 2003 by WPA or Wi-Fi Protected Access. WPA was a quick alternative to improve security over WEP. The current standard is WPA2; some hardware cannot support WPA2 without firmware upgrade or replacement. WPA2 uses an encryption device which encrypts the network with a 256 bit key; the longer key length improves security over WEP.
The complete article is here

Wireless security

Log in to your router and find the wireless security section. Set up the security model that best suits your needs and then set up your wireless network card with the same information.

I am connected to my new dlink DHP-W306AV via ethernet cable on MacOSX Lion and I have internet access, but I cannot acces the router at 192.168.0.50 ... It just says "Server is not responding" ...


You should reset the unit back to factory and also install the latest firmware , if it not already updated previously. This unit was discontinued by the manufacturer back in 2004.

Here is the manufacturer's link to your unit

Be sure you select the correct version for the manual and firmware

Unable to reset my DWL-G700AP by holding in the reset button and can not connect to or ping via 192.168.0.50


Under Windows 7, press the "Start" button.
Type 'cmd' into the search-box, and press ENTER.
Type 'ipconfig /all', and press ENTER.
Look for the IP-address for the "gateway" (or "DHCP-server").
Type that IP-address into your web-browser.

DWL 2700 AP wrong firmware install


hi...
since you upgraded a different firmware try updating the firmware again with the correct firmware if it works fine if it doesnot then the router had gone bad,,
and for GeminiBS reset the router to the factory default since the firmware was not done in a proper manner may be it had interruptions..once the hard reset is done the computer is restored back to the default so that you can use the device..

DHCP option is disabled when LAN IP is Dynamic on DWL-G700AP


that is right the access point does not have a dhcp server. that will give an ip address to all of your computers or device connected to it wireless. If you have a modem with a dhcp server there will be no problem with the IP but if the modem does not you must have a router and now an access point.

My DWL-G700AP will power up for about 30 seconds then nothing


I am assuming if there is a power button, it is turned on.

Did it always do it or just start? If it just started, and it's out of warranty, you're probably out of luck. If you just got it, it is defective and you should return it right away.

I have here the steps on how to reset your device.

To perform a reset, please follow steps below:

Step 1 With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back on the unit labeled Reset.

Step 2 Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.

Note: Do not repower unit during this procedure.

Step 3 The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.
