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 (this will be present in device manager)

Step 4 – Click on “Open”

Step 5 – Hit enter key and you should be presented with the Login screen

DSR-1000N login: admin
Password: admin

Step 6 – Enter the following command to enter into the system time configuration

D-Link DSR> .reboot

Router will be up in 85 seconds.

Step 7 – 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 8 – Enter the following command to set the DSR to the subnet of host

D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv ipaddr

Step 9 – Enter the following command to the IP of the host where the tftp resides

D-Link DSR-1000N bootloader# setenv serverip

Step 10 – Enter the following command to set all tftp transfers on LAN ports

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

Step 11 – Enter the following command to firmware flash and erase

You can upload a new Boot Image and/or new Firmware to your D-Link DWS/DXS-32xx switches in stacking mode all in one attempt.

Please log in to the master switch and follow these instructions:

Step 1 Please type the following command to upload the latest boot version.
If you are already running the latest boot code please skip this step and upload the firmware.

DWS/DXS-32xx# copy tftp://{tftp server ip}/{boot file} unit://*/boot

Please do not reboot the switch at this time

Step 2 Please run the following command to upload the latest firmware.
DWS/DXS-32xx# copy tftp://{tftp server ip}/{image file} unit://*/image

Remember to copy both boot and image files before rebooting the stack.( If applicable)
Since firmware always gets uploaded on the non-active partition you need to run the
following command for each switch.

DWS/DXS-32xx# boot system unit 8 image-2

This is an example considering that this is 8th unit of the stack and non active
image is 2.
You need to run this command for every switch of the stack.

Please read before upgrading your firmware:

  • Upgrading firmware (in most cases) will reset all the settings to default which means you will lose all your settings (including your password).
  • Unless specified, you do not have to upgrade incrementally. You can upgrade directly to the newest version.
  • Unless the new version of firmware is only a minor upgrade, you cannot use the backup settings feature to save and apply setting to the newer firmware.
  • Do NOT upgrade firmware from a computer with a wireless connection. Use a computer that you can connect to the router using a Ethernet cable. You may damage the router due to the increased chances of packet loss in a wireless connection environment.
  • Turn off or pause all anti-virus and firewall programs on your PC



Step 1.  Download the latest firmware. Visit  Make sure to save the file in an easy to find location (e.g., Desktop or Download Folder). Firmware files are usually in ZiP file format and must be extracted before using its content.


Step 2.  Once you’ve downloaded the firmware, open a web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome) and enter the IP address of your router on the address bar (default: you can also use it’s local friendly name http://dlinkrouter.local/.


Step 3.  Enter the username (admin) and your password (leave the password field blank of you have not setup a password yet). Click OK to gain access its web configuration pages.


Step 4.  Backup your configuration file. Navigate to Maintenance/System/Save Configuration Section. Click on [Save Configuration] button to download your current config file. Make sure to save the file in an easy to find location (e.g., Desktop or Download Folder).


Step 5.  Factory Reset the router*.  You can do this in two way:

1. Using the routers web interface (navigate to Maintenance/System/Restore to Factory Default section)
2. Using a paper clip and holding down the RESET button, located at the bottom of the unit, for 12 seconds.


Step 6. Update the router from the routers web page. To begin navigate to Maintenance/System/Upgrade Firmware and click the”browse” button find the .bin file extracted from the ZIP file you downloaded.


Step 7. Click Upload. It may take up to 300 seconds for the upgrade process to complete. When the countdown timer finishes, click on the continue button. The firmware is now upgraded. Reset the unit back to factory settings one more time, by following instruction in Step 5.


Step 8.  After the router reset process is complete and unit is back to ready, reconfigure the router from scratch or reload the saved configuration file.


Step 9. If you get a Page cannot be displayed or similar error after clicking Continue, close your browser and re-open it. Enter* and press Enter. You should now be prompted for your username (admin) and your password (leave blank)by default.


Your Firmware has been updated!


Note: Do not forget to enable your Antivirus and Firewall programs after the upgrade is completed.


*If you have changed the local network IP address segment, resetting the unit will return the routers to it’s original LAN settings of

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.
