I downloaded DLink DSL 502T firmware upgrade V2.00B01T01.ML.20050530_upgradeB05 from dlink support .

My router is connected to the computer through the USB port, and running PPPoE. On the first run of this firmware update tool, I had Sygate Personal firewall on. When the firmware upgrade utility tried to connect to 192.168.1.1, Sygate confirmation dialog popped up. By the time I acknowledged and allowed access, the upgrade stopped responding.

So on next run, I set SPF to 'allow all' traffic and unchecked 'hide broadcast data'. This time the upgrade appeared to be going fine and the firewall was showing consistent data transfer by the firmware tool. But it was happening only @ 500 bytes/sec. I left the tranfer and waited for over 2 hours. Nearly 5MB data had been tranferred by this firmware upgrade tool, but the transfer just wont stop (Im assuming, to the router. USB lights were flashing madly, ADSL lights were not) ....and the firmware image was just 1.9MB in size.

Finally I got fed up and tried looking for a solution on the net, and found the router was still working...I mean firmware upgrade in progress and simultaneously online :eek:

Finally, I prepared myself for a dead router and closed the upgrade tool ctrl-alt-del. Fortunately, its still working.

...wtf is going on...

Is there really any reason to upgrade the firmware. I think I have the old firmwire but my router is working fine without any problems. I am getting the same 28 - 29 K speed as everybody else.

@trivisingh...u don't really need to upgrade the firmware if u don't do much R&D in the router...if u just use to connect to the net, it's fine this way... :)

hey ppl. are the dlink ppl doin it for free??
i ws js palnin to play with the router.. (upgrade it my self).. but i feel none of u has been successfull as yet..!!
n ppl it might not b possible wth d usb port since it requires a static ip . n if the connection once breaks.. ur pc might not detect d router properly.. so u ll land in d middle of nowhere..

also u hv to factory reset it before upgrading..
ne wayz it might b better n get it upgraded... if its fr FREE !!

do ne of u no where all r the service centres located??
is there in north delhi...
