I have an iMAC O/S. I was told to upgrade my firmware for my D-Link DIR-628 but when I download it, I can not get it unzipped. I was also told to download this program called stuff it expander, which is I guess a program to help me unzip it, but to no avail?

Your mac should automatically unzip the zip file with no issues.
after you download it double click on the zip file and your mac will unzip it
you should see a folder name dir628_FW_125NA
assuming you downloaded
go to your dlink router in safari or firefox or chrome browsers and open
login and go to firmware link on the left hand side of the browser
browse to the location of the new firmware and upload to begin the upgrade process.

I want to instal the d-link dir-628 but i dont have the cd

You don't really need the CD to install the router. This link will take you to the DLink support page for your router. If you have lost your user manual, click on the link for "Product Manual" and download it to your computer, then unzip the compressed file to read the PDF manual. It will explain to you how to use your web browser (IE or Firefox or whatever your use) to set up your router.

Hope that's helpful.

I just bought this router and am trying to get it connect with a Verison wirelss USB mobile broadband. How can I connect it to my computer and an Xbox 360?

For Verizon i found that Currently, the DIR-412 Mobile Broadband Wireless Router is the only D-Link router that is 3G compatible. The DIR-412 supports 3G USB adapters complying with HSUPA/HSDPA/EV-DO/TD-SCDMA networks and works with most major cellular carriers (AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Rogers, Telus, Bell, etc).
D-Link routers empower gamers to easily connect their Microsoft Xbox to network and experience lag-free online gaming. All you need is a D-Link router to go along with your broadband connection and Xbox Live subscription and you can go head to head with friends and adversaries from around the world.

The D-Link DI-624 Wireless Broadband Router, DI-614+ Wireless Broadband Router, and the D-Link DI-604 Broadband Router have all passed the tests for compatibility with Microsoft Xbox Live with specific firmware. Just download the specific compatible firmware listed below to your D-Link router before connecting to Xbox Live.

  • Click here to upgrade your firmware.
  • Click here for Xbox Live setup instructions with a router.
  • For Xbox Live support, please visit

    Hello, my d-link DIR615 type D1 disconnects himself usely about 3-4 times a day. With a reboot from the d-link it works again after a while. Can this problem be in the DNS? or can you please tell me what...

    I had a similar problem in the past. I would suggest the following solutions:

    1) Download the latest drivers for the D-Link DIR-625 or D-615 Router at the manufacturer's website DIR-625:
    -Make sure to download the correct drivers for your operating system (XP, Vista, Windows 7).

    2) Download the latest firmware for the D-Link DIR-625 or DIR-615. It is available through the same listed websites.
    Note: Make sure to use direct connection for firmware upgrades so that it upgrades securely without errors.

    3) Make sure the modem is up to date. If it's your modem, then upgrade drivers and firmware by googling the appropriate model number and brand of the modem.

    4) If it is not your modem, you can still upgrade the drivers and firmware. Further assistance should be available through your ISP (Comcast, Verizon).

    5) Sometimes a connection may be disconnecting because the firmware for the connection via FiOS/DSL may not be upgraded in the infrastructure outside your house. To solve this issue, call up your ISP and tell him that you are disconnecting several times a day and ask if firmware is up to date.

    6) It may be a faulty modem. If so, call up your ISP and they should replace it for free (generally).

    7) Fault router may entail customer support at D-Link. Just contact through email and check your warranty. They may help you even if the product is out of warranty (happened to me).
