If you’re trying to upgrade your D-Link DIR-655 Extreme-N Gigabit Wireless Router to the latest firmware (1.35NA US version as of this post), you may encounter a weird problem: firmware uploads without errors, router says it is being reprogrammed, but after reboot old version is displayed.
To solve it – try following these steps
- Save your current settings (Tools -> System -> Save Configuration) – you should do it prior any update anyway
- This what does the trick: On the same screen click “Restore Factory Default” – this will restore router default settings (one more reason why it’s important to do the update over wired connection)
- Flash your firmware
- Restore setting saved in Step 1 and reboot the router
Profit!You’re now on the latest firmware
