If you are experiencing router reboots, try using the crash recovery method and reflashing an earlier firmware.

Use the following steps to crash recover your D-Link DIR-450:

Step 1 Download the firmware you wish to use from our support site.

Step 2 Unplug the power from the router. Hold in the reset button and plug the power back in. Continue holding for 10 seconds and then release.

Step 3 Statically assign an IP address to your computer in the same IP subnet range: 192.168.0.x (where x is any number between 2 and 254). Your Subnet Mask should be 255.255.255.0.

Step 4 Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape and enter the IP address of the DIR-450 (192.168.0.1).

Step 5 You should see the crash recovery page. Browse to the location of the firmware on your hard-drive and click the Send button.

Your D-Link router should now be stable and ready to configure.

Note: Factory resetting the router will erase all the settings you have made to the D-Link router. 

 

To perform a factory reset, please follow these steps:

 

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

 

 

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

 

Step 3: The COVR LED on the front will turn solid RED and then the device will reboot. Please allow for up to one minute for the reset process to complete.

 

Note: Do not hold the reset button for longer than 10 seconds, doing so could cause the router to go into a recovery mode (the Power light will flash or stay orange). If this happens, unplug the power from the router for 30 seconds. Also, resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults.
