This article tell you how to recover the D-Link DSR-250N Wireless Router.

Note: – For the recovery process you will need the following:

• Console cable
• TFTP server
• Firmware – Download the latest version from the www.dlink.com
• PuTTy

Step 1
– Connect the serial port of the D-Link DSR-250N to your PC and an Ethernet cable between the DSR and your network (which is connected your PC)

Step 2 – Open the TFTP server and set the DSR firmware in the root folder.

For example: C: \ Program Files \ Tftpd64

Step 3 – Open PuTTy and configure a COM port with the following: (The COM Port will be showing in Device Manager)


Step 4 -Once configured, click “Open”

Step 5 -Once you see the boot process and the message – Complete the following:

Hit any key to stop autoboot: (“Press any key to stop autoboot”) press the Enter key to enter the bootloader

Step 6 – Enter the following command to set the IP address of the DSR

D-Link DSR-250N bootloader #setenv ipaddr

Step 7 -Enter the following command to set the host IP address where the TFTP resides

D-Link DSR-250N bootloader #setenv serverip

Step 8 -Enter the following command to set all the TFTP transfer of the LAN ports

D-Link DSR-250N bootloader #setenv ethact octeth0

Step 9 – Copy and paste the following command to overwrite the firmware

D-Link DSR-250N bootloader #setenv firm_flash ‘erase + 0x10080000 0x1d20000; cp.b $ (loadaddr) 0x10080000 0x1d20000’

Step 10 –Enter the following commands to boot firmware

D-Link DSR-250N bootloader #setenv boot_firm ‘0x10080000 cp.b $ (loadaddr) 500000; go 0x4000200’

D-Link DSR-250N bootloader #setenv bootcmd ‘run boot_firm’

Step 11 -Enter the following command to register

D-Link DSR-250N bootloader# saveenv

Step 12 -Enter the following command to transfer the firmware

D-Link DSR-250N bootloader#
 tftp $(loadaddr) DSR-250N_A2_FW2.11_WW

(The full name of the firmware as indicated below)

You should also notice the transfer from TFTP server (if not, make sure the firewall is turned off or an antivirus program does not block)


Step 13
-Enter the following command to flash the firmware

D-Link DSR-250N bootloader# run firm_flash

Step 14
-Enter the following command to run the firmware at boot

D-Link DSR-250N bootloader# run boot_firm

Once the operation is completed, the DSR will ask you to log in again.

DSR-250N login: admin
Password: admin

If you want to limit a certain VLAN’s incoming bandwidth usage, for instance to limit a guest VLAN’s download speed.

Step 1: Login in to your DSR. Click Advanced in top menu bar. Once the page has refreshed, in the left hand menu, hover over Advanced Network then Traffic Management, then click Bandwidth Profiles.

Step 2: If you have not already done so, you will need to tick the “Enable Bandwidth Profiles” tickbox, then click Save Settings. Click Add to create the inbound traffic limit.

Step 3: Name the Profile, for instance if you are creating the profile for VLAN 2 inbound traffic, you could name it VLAN2_Inbound. Change the Profile Type to “Rate”. In the Minimum Bandwidth Rate box, type the minimum bandwidth you would like that VLAN to get. This can be set to any value between 1Kbps and the Maximum Bandwidth Rate value. Set the Maximum Bandwidth Rate. This can be any value from 100Kbps to 1000000Kbps. Set the LAN Interface to be the LAN you want to limit bandwidth for.


Step 4: Click Save Settings to save this profile.

Step 5: You need to define a custom service for use in step 7. On the left hand menu, hover over Firewall Settings then click Custom Services.

Step 6: Click Add. In Name put “CS_ANY”. For Type select “Both”. Leave Port Type as “Port Range”. In Start Port put “1”, in Finish Port put “65535”.

Click Save Settings to save this setting.

Step 6: Hover over Advanced Network then Traffic Management then click Traffic Selectors

Click Add

Step 7: In the Available Profiles box, select the Profile we created earlier, in this case “VLAN_250_Inbound”. In theService box, select the service we created in Step 5 “CS_ANY”. In the Traffic Selector Match Type box, select IP. In the IP Address box type “”. In the Subnet Mask box, type “”.


Click Save Settings to save this traffic selector, and limit incoming traffic for all IP addresses on this VLAN.

D-Link’s new flagship Wi-Fi router (DIR-895L) is a prime example of the arms race among networking vendors since the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard was introduced.

Manufacturers have been steadily launching new routers, with each iteration touting higher transfer speeds. But these speeds are aggregated across multiple wireless bands and do not reflect the actual bandwidth available for a single client device.

For instance, the D-Link DIR-895L is marketed as an AC5300 router (5,300Mbps), derived by adding the transfer speeds from its three wireless bands. For a single client such as a smartphone or tablet, the DIR-895L will not be any faster than a basic AC1300 router.

But the D-Link’s dual 5GHz and single 2.4GHz bands are useful for homes that are increasingly cluttered with Wi-Fi devices. Older clients that support slower Wi-Fi speeds can be put into their own wireless bands without affecting other faster devices. The router does this automatically via a feature dubbed Smart Connect.

Because of the competition among manufacturers, advanced features often make their way into routers before they are widely adopted. These features usually stay dormant till the manufacturer deems it appropriate to enable them via a firmware update.

Take the Multi-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) feature, which is not yet supported by most Wi-Fi clients. This feature lets the router send data wirelessly to multiple clients at the same time. It is currently disabled on the D-Link DIR-895L.


Angular in profile, and with eight detachable and adjustable antennas, the red DIR-895L cuts an eye-catching figure. It can be mounted on a wall, though I am not comfortable doing so because the router is relatively heavy.

The DIR-895L has four Gigabit LAN ports at the back, along with a USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 port.

Features that you’d expect from a modern router, such as parental controls, guest networks and the ability to share files over the Internet, are all supported.

The router’s web-based interface looks slick and is easy to navigate. By default, advanced features are hidden from users to reduce screen clutter.

However, the router can take varying amounts of time (from 25 seconds to 80 seconds) to save changes made to the settings. The good thing is that the interface always indicates the exact amount of time it expects to take. Still, I was expecting the router’s dual-core processor to run faster.

Performance could be better. The router recorded an average download speed of 501Mbps, which is significantly lower than the top speed of 695Mbps managed by one of its rivals, the Asus RT-AC5300 ($469).
