The firmware upgrade process for all D-Link managed switches runs over TFTP. You will need TFTP software running on the computer that has the Firmware file on the local hardrive. If you do not have TFTP software, it is freely available on the Internet.

The Firmware upgrade procedure requires an Ethernet connection between the switch and the TFTP server. You must be able to access the switch through Telnet or the Web based configuration from the computer that is running the TFTP software. Although there are many different ways to configure the switch, it is easiest for you to use the Web based configuration when upgrading the Firmware.

The Web based configuration of any D-Link switch can be accessed by entering the IP address in the address bar of any Java-enabled browser. The default IP address of the D-Link DES-3226 is If you are unable to access the web based configuration, connect to the switch through Hyperterminal and reset the switch to Factory default. If you have made configuration changes to the switch, make sure that your TFTP server is on the Management VLAN, and that it can PING the switch.

Step 1 Open your Web browser and enter the IP address of the DES-3226 in the address bar ( Select Login at the top of the web page. When prompted, enter the username/password that you have assigned to the switch. By default there is no username or password assigned to the switch.


Step 2 From the folder tree on the left-side of the page select Maintenance>TFTP Services>Update Firmware.


Step 3 Enter the IP address of the computer running the TFTP software in the field labeled Server IP Address. In the field labeled File Name, enter the path to the firmware file that is on the local hardrive of the computer running the TFTP software. Make sure that you include the file extension of the firmware file when specifying the directory path.


Step 4 Make sure that there is TFTP software running on the computer who-¦s IP address was entered in the Web based configuration. Click on the Apply button, and then click on Start.

Step 5 During the upgrade process this is what you should see. The D-Link TFTP software is also shown in the below screenshot which will also display the firmware upgrade status.


Step 6 After the Firmware upgrade is complete the switch will automatically reboot. Wait 1-2 minutes and then reconnect to the switch. Login and select Configuration>Switch Information. The field labeled Firmware Version should now display the Firmware Version that you just upgraded to.

Method 1

Step 1: Open an Internet browser (such as Internet Explorer) and enter http://dlinkrouter.local or into the address bar.



Step 2: Enter the password for your Admin account in the field provided. If you have not changed this password from the default, leave the field blank. Click Log In.



Step 3: Move the cursor to the Settings tab and then click Wireless from the drop-down menu.



Your wireless network information should now be visible, including your wireless passwords for both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks.


Method 2


If you’ve registered your router with mydlink, you may log in to the mydlink web portal to modify your router’s settings.


Step 1: Go to



Step 2: Log in to mydlink with your existing mydlink account name and password.



Step 3: Choose the router from My Devices on the left-hand side of the page. Go to the Settings tab.



Step 4: Go to Basic Settings and click the arrow for the wireless band you wish to see the password for. The information for the band you selected will appear. Check the Show Password box next to the Wi-Fi Password field to view your password. You can also enter a new password at this time.



Step 5: Click Save if you have made changes to your settings.



Step 6: To confirm the changes, click Yes. It will take at least 80 seconds to save the changes and reboot the router.

VLAN 1 can communicate with VLAN 2 but VLAN2 cannot access VLAN 1. Both VLANS can access the internet.

Lan Interface:

Default VLAN— VID-1—Ports 1-8
Vlan1    VLAN— VID 2—Ports 9-24
Port 1 will be tagged and connected to the DFL-210/800/1600.

Setup of D-Link DGS-3024

Step 1:From command line interface of DGS-3024:
DGS-3024# create vlan Vlan1 tag 2
DGS-3024# config vlan default delete 9-24
DGS-3024# config vlan Vlan1 add untagged 9-24
DGS-3024# config vlan default add tagged 1
DGS-3024# config vlan Vlan1 add tagged 1
DGS-3024# save



Setup of DFL-210

Step 1: Click on Objects and Interface Address. Add New IP address for the following:


Step 2: Click on Interfaces and VLAN. Add New VLAN.
Name: VLAN1
Interface: lan

IP Address: VLAN1
Network: VLAN1_Net
Default Gateway: None

Click OK.

Step 3: Click on Interfaces and VLAN. Add New VLAN.
Name: VLAN2
Interface: lan
IP Address: VLAN2
Network: VLAN2_Net
Default Gateway: None

Click OK.

Step 4: Click on Objects and Interface Address. Add New IP4 group.
Name: All_Internal_Nets
Select: lannet, VLAN1_net, VLAN2_net

Click OK.

Step 5: Click on Interfaces and select Interface Groups. Add New Interface Group.
Name: All_Internal_Interfaces
Select: lan, Vlan1, Vlan2

Click OK.

Step 6: Click on Rules, IP Rules, Lan to WAN. Edit The following 4 Rules:

Note: Each of the rules will need to be edited and have the new interface/nets applied.

Step 6: Click on Rules, IP Rules. Add New IP Folder (Optional).
Name: Vlan_Rules

Click OK.

Step 7: Add new IP Rule.
Name: Allow_VLAN1_to_VLAN2
Action: Allow

Note: This FAQ uses the D-Link DIR-632 as an example. Your screen may look different than the image below.

QoS (Quality of Service) is designed to shape and prioritize your internet traffic among the computers on your LAN. This allows for an optimized internet experience.

To set up QoS in your router, use the following steps:

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the DIR series router into the address bar (default is

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click on OK.

Step 3: Click on the Advanced tab at the top and then click on QOS Engine on the left hand side.



  • Enable QoS Engine: Enable this option for better performance and experience with online games and other interactive applications, such as VoIP.
  • Automatic Uplink Speed: When enabled, this option causes the router to automatically measure the useful uplink bandwidth each time the WAN interface is re-established (after a reboot, for example).
  • Measured Uplink Speed: This is the uplink speed measured when the WAN interface was last re-established. The value may be lower than that reported by your ISP as it does not include all of the network protocol overheads associated with your ISP’s network. Typically, this figure will be between 87% and 91% of the stated uplink speed for xDSL connections and around 5 kbps lower for cable network connections.
  • Manual Uplink Speed: If Automatic Uplink Speed is disabled, this option allows you to set the uplink speed manually. Uplink speed is the speed at which data can be transferred from the router to your ISP. This is determined by your ISP. ISPs often specify speed as a downlink/uplink pair; for example, 1.5Mbps/284kbps. For this example, you would enter “284”. Alternatively you can test your uplink speed with a service such as Note however that sites such as DSL Reports, because they do not consider as many network protocol overheads, will generally note speeds slightly lower than the Measured Uplink Speed or the ISP rated speed.

Step 4: Click Save Settings.
