D-Link DSL2730U dead after firmware update

I did firmware update on my router Dlink DSL 2730U. After this even the power light is not glowing. When I connect LAN wire from router to laptop, then I can find LAN light of my laptop blinking. But it could not establish a successful connection through LAN.In "Local Area Connection Status" I get below status Status: Limited or no connectivity IP address 169.254.157.182 I have done all kind of reset but in vain. Is there any way out?

Did you do a Hard reset of the Router after the Firmware Update? Try a 30/30/30 reset procedure: http://compnetworking.about.com/b/2009/03/11/the-30-30-30-hard-reset-rule-for-routers.htm Then reconfigure the SSID and the Security Key. AFTER, Shutdown the Laptop remove battery, plug in, reboot. post results.

SOURCE: DI-524 wired/wireless access point

Just for fun, make the router give out IP addresses starting at 192.168.0.101 forward. Configure the AP at 192.168.0.2 with no DHCP (the host will give out the addresses), a netmask of 255.255.255.0, and a gateway of 192.168.0.1. Now, let the laptop find DHCP, or give it a 192.168.0.x address where x is greater than 2 but less than 101.

How lucky is that?

SOURCE: D-Link DI-534 Starting up problems

Try resetting the router . Press the reset button for 10 seconds and after 10 seconds unplug the power cable but continue pressing the reset button for another 30 seconds after 30 seconds plug in back the power cable and continue pressing the reset button for 10 seconds and release it after 10 seconds.

try to open an Internet browser and type in 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. It should give you the DLink page. Once you have that configure your connection.

Download the new firmware for your router. Should be able to locate it on the D-link site. Log into the router and let it update. Instructions on how to do this are in the manual or online. This should solve any connection problems with your router.

SOURCE: After replacing Cable Modem, D-Link DI-524 Wireless will not work

Did you call Comcast and give them the new MAC address of the Motorola SB5101 SURFboard cable modem? I'm surpised it works at all without doing this first. This is the hardware address of your modem so the world can see you, no one in the world has the same MAC address, they are all different. It's on a sticker on the modem.

D-link DSL 2730u modem dead after wrong firmware update through wireless


Attempt to do the firmware update, again--connecting always to ethernet for firmware updates. Unfortunately, your modem may be "bricked" (unusable)--in other words, it may be time to recycle it and buy a new one.

The firmware may proved damaged--given that the incorrect firmware successfully installed (hopefully, that was prevented by the device itself--it may have output an error message or code)--or, it was installed incompletely, or the update proved corrupted.

Dlink Dsl -2730u


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.

Which is the latest firmware update for the 2540U Router? http://ftp.dlink.ru/pub/ADSL/DSL-2540U/Firmware/ is the only site I can find with updates on it but I'm not sure which to choose.


Make sure you download the correct firmware for you Hardware.
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 hardware (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.

Hi i have a dsl g684t router during the update of my firmware my pc tune of now i cant connect too my router pls help me ...... srry my bad english....


Shut down your system.
Try unplugging the power cord from the router. Find the small reset button on the back of the router. Use a pen and press in the reset button for ten seconds or so. Reconnect the power to the router. Than startup your system. You should be able connect to the internet now.
If not than the problem is with the firmware update. Contact, D-link tech support. http://www.dlink.com/support/

Cheers!

Wireless router


Yes, you can use wireless router with the modem. I guess the actiontech DSl router that you have is also Wireless one. If so, you can use just the DSL router for wireless connection. If you really want to use Dlink router with it, Connect the ( WAN port ) of the Dlink router to the ( LAN Port ) of the Action tech modem [ modem(LAN)-->Dlink(WAN) ]. Once you do this connection, better to do power cycle ( unplug the pwr to the dlink first, then, disconnect the pwr to action tech - wait 1min and plug the pwr to modem, wait for DSL light to be solid , then put the pwr back to dlink ). Make sure DSL light on the modem solid, internet light & WLAN light on the link glowing.
- Make Hardwire connection between the computer to Dlink and check the ip address on the computer whether it acquires the ip address from Dlink and then check the internet connection on the computer, it has to work. if computer not getting ip from dlink, try restarting computer.
- If hardwire connection on the dlink works fine and check the wireless connection.

For wireless configuration or assistance you may check this link:

please feel free to ask, if you have any more assistance.
