NOTE – The recovery process will need the following:

• Console Cable
• tftp server
• Firmware – Download the latest firmware on our website
• PuTTy

Step 1 – Connect the serial port of the DSR with your PC and an Ethernet cable to a port on the DSR and connected to a switch on the same network

Step 2 – Open the tftp server and put the firmware of the DSR into the root folder

For example: C:\Program Files\Tftpd64


Step 3 – Open PuTTy and setup a COM port with the following settings:


Step 4 – Once configured, click on “Open” to show the following:

Step 5 – Once you see the boot process and see the message “Hit any key to stop autoboot:” hit the enter key to enter the bootloader#


Set the environment variables (Copy and paste into CLI):

Step 6 – Enter the following command to set the DSR to the subnet of host


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv ipaddr

Step 7 – Enter the following command to the IP of the host where the tftp resides


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv serverip

Step 8 – Enter the following command to set all tftp transfers on LAN ports


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv ethact octeth0

Step 9 – Enter the following command to firmware flash and erase


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv firm_flash ‘erase BDCA0000 BF99FFFF; cp.b 0xaa00000 BDCA0000 1D00000’

Step 10 – Enter the following command to boot firmware

D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv boot_firm ‘cp.b BDCA0000 0xaa00000 900000; bootoctlinux 0xaa00200 mtdparts=phys_mapped


o setenv bootcmd ‘run boot_firm’

Step 11 – Enter the following command to sabe


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# saveenv

TFTP the image and flash it:

Step 12 – Enter the following command:


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# tftp 0xAA00000 DSR-1000N_A1_FW1.09B61_WW (this is the FULL name of the firmware as shown below)


You should also notice the tftp server starting the file transfer (if not, make sure the firewall is disabled or an antivirus program is not blocking)


Step 13 – Enter the following command to run flash firmware and wait until complete


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# run firm_flash

Step 14 – Enter the following command to boot firmware


D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# run boot_firm

Once the flashing of the image is complete, you will see the u-boot prompt again. At this moment you can now power cycle the DSR.

D-Link DSR-500N Wireless Services Router Description:


Comprehensive Management Capabilities

The DSR-500N includes dual-WAN Gigabit Ethernet which provides policy-based service management ensuring maximum productivity for your business operations. The failover feature maintains data traffic without disconnecting when a landline connection is lost. The Outbound Load Balancing feature1 adjusts outgoing traffic across two WAN interfaces and optimizes the system performance resulting in high availability. The second WAN port can be configured as a DMZ port allowing you to isolate servers from your LAN.

Superior Wireless Performance

Designed to deliver superior wireless performance, the DSR-500N includes 802.11 b/g/n, allowing for operation on the 2.4 GHz radio band. Multiple In Multiple Out (MIMO) technology allows the DSR-500N to provide high data rates with minimal “dead spots” throughout the wireless coverage area.

Robust VPN Features

A fully featured virtual private network (VPN) provides your mobile workers and branch offices with a secure link to your network. The DSR-500N are capable of simultaneously managing 10 Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN tunnels respectively, empowering your mobile users by providing remote access to a central corporate database. Site-to-site VPN tunnels use IP Security (IPSec) Protocol, Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP), or Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) to facilitate branch office connectivity through encrypted virtual links. The DSR-500N supports up to 35 simultaneous VPN tunnels.

·Integrated 802.11g/n wireless up to 300Mbps*
·4 Gigabit Ethernet ports
·Dual Gigabit WAN ports for Failover and Outbound Load-Balancing
·VPN Protocol Support for IPSec, PPTP, L2TP, and SSL
·Up to 35 VPN tunnels and Up to 10 SSL VPN tunnels
·Multiple 802.1q VLAN and SSID Support
·Static URL Address Filtering
