Re: 3CRWER100-75 firmware update problem.
Hold in the reset 'button' with a paper
clip or something else small for a FULL 30 seconds, keep the paper
clip in place, power the router off for 30 seconds, then power the
router on again, still holding the paperclip in place for another 30
seconds. That's 1 minute 30 seconds total (3hours in cat time) but
that should force the router into a factory reset. Then go to
192.168.1.1 etc and all should be well" - hope this helps. Dave

Two possible causes for this:
1. Power fluctuations has caused the AC to DC power supply to over supply the router with current. This will damage the router's electronics. Solution to this is to buy a new router.
2. Updated firmware: if you updated the firmware and the new firmware got corrupted during the download, you could experience that problem. I will suggest to revert back to a previous version if this occured.
You will need to apply the firmware to the machine. I've attached the link to hp site for you to download the firmware file as well. Below the link is the directions on how to accomplish this, as well you can see the same directions on via the link provided
The Firmware Update Utility uses the USB connection to the printer.
The HP Color LaserJet CM1312 MFP print driver software must be installed prior to using this utility.
The HP Color LaserJet CM1312 MFP printer must be on and in a
READY state as shown by the LCD display on the control panel and remain
powered on during the entire firmware update process.
Depending on the processor speed of your PC, the firmware
update process may complete on the printer before the update status
progress bar in the flash firmware update utility on the PC screen
completes, this is normal.
Once the update process has started, do not use your PC for any other activity until the process is complete.
Do not power cycle the product or the PC until the firmware update process is complete.
Download the flash firmware updater file from HP.com to the PC desktop.
Turn the printer off and then back on to clear main printer memory.
Double click on the file
CM1312_MFP_Series_FW_Update-20100616.exe flash firmware update utility
file. An HP firmware update window will open.
Select the appropriate CM1312 MFP driver in the dialog window.
If you assigned a different name to the HP CM1312 MFP, choose the name
that represents the correct printer.
Click on "Send Firmware" when ready to proceed.
The progress bar will begin to move to the right indicating information being transferred.
DO NOT power cycle the product or the PC during this process
or the product may become unstable and or unusable without further
attention from HP. The flash firmware update can take up to 5 minutes to
complete. Please be patient.
During the product flash firmware update, the display on the
product control panel will display "Printing Document - Erasing -
Programming - Complete - Hewlett-Packard - Ready - Initializing -
Ready". Once the download is finished the printer will be in the Ready
At the conclusion of the firmware update, the dialog window will show a smiley face. Click on exit.
If it is desired to verify the update, use the control panel
reports menu under setup to print a configuration report. The
configuration report will show the current firmware revision in the
Product information block, Firmware Datecode: 20100616
you got yourself a pickle. updating firmware (or flashing) it's a very critical process and you only do it becuase you have to (an nothing else), not completing a firmware update usually will cause irreperable damage to your unit so be prepared to replace the router.
now the only thing you can try is to
1. make sure you have the right firmware update (the one that is specifically for your router model and revision). find the router model and revision (usually at the bottom of your router) and get the right version from the router manufacturer and nowhere else and try the update again since you can still access the configuration page. section 5.11.2 on manual (link below)
2. you may also want to attempt to reset your router to factory defaults, section 5.11.3 on manual
Download the firmware update files and if they're inside a zip file, it's very important that you unzip every file before running the update or it may fail. Before you leave the manufacturer's website, see if they have any specific instructions on how to update the firmware. Also check to see if any instructions were included in the download. Samsung for example included a pdf file on how to run the update.
Please note that it is VERY important that your computer remains on and doesn't freeze up during the update process. Close all other unnecessary programs before starting the update. Disable your antivirus and any other protection software so it doesn't stop the process. Norton and McAfee often like to interrupt the process because they assume something bad is going on. Also don't run an update during a thunderstorm because if your computer loses power in the middle of the process, that would be really bad. If anything interrupts the updating process before it's complete, your hardware will likely become a paperweight aka a brick. It will have a half updated, scrambled operating system and will cease to function completely. Some routers and other advanced hardware have a rollback feature just in case but not many other pieces of hardware do so be careful!
WARNING: Make sure that the update process is not interrupted or it may break the hardware permanently
actually there are two phases in update process 1. downloading the firmware , first the update suite downloads the whole software from internet it also shows percentage bars is it that 33 percent then it is ok to remove and restart the application to resolve this check ur internet connection this software is around 70 to 80 mb it needs a good conn and always leave ur phone on cradle during this process to complet flawlessly and firs treset ur phone once before attemeting this process it is better
but if it is that when ur phone software is actually updated and it is written on screen dont remove the handset from the cradle then it is risky to do that wait for like an hour see if it goes past
Well if you updated the firmware and your still having issues contact dlink for a possible replacement it sounds like the hardware could be bad or you can try uploading same firmware by crash reseting router and uploading latest firmware again.
