D-link Dir 655 Firmware

D-Link DIR-655 1.32NA Firmware Final

Update 16th January 2010: 1.33b01NA has been released.

Update: D-Link has released a new beta firmware for the DIR-655 here, it ONLY fixes *a* SharePort issue.

This is old news but I thought it would be best to point out that the final firmware version of 1.32 is out, here is the change log:

Firmware: 1.32NA
Date: 07/20/09

1. Fix when disable DHCP server and enable DHCP server, LAN PC cannot get IP.
2. Fix using wireless client to configure Access Control rules, cause DUT reboot.
3. Fix UPnP bug.
4. Disable CAPTCHA by default
5. Fixed QRS issue, can’t set up wireless setting.
6. Fixed Router DHCP IP range issue.
7. Fixed WPS UI Show Error warning message.
8. Fix potential security leak with CAPTCHA.
9. Fix USB LED issue about Shareport.
10.Fix Shareport HP932C with Wins 7 issue
11. Fix if set more than 8 Trigger or Firewall port in Application Rules. It will show Warning message.
12. Fix bug: When QRS set wan type of rt to DHCP, the rt will not set Primary and second DNS.

Note: This firmware does not allow downgrading to pre-1.3x.

So far it appears that the DNS Relay lockup bug has not been fixed, SharePort is still acting up for users and in some cases even worse, some people report smoother file transfers however.

  1. Hi,

    Am I o the only one having problems with 1.32NA ? From time to time my 655 A3 stops responding (no traffic, access to router denied). I’m really getting irritated. The 1.21 was a delight compared to the 1.32 . I’m really sorry I upgraded the firmware.

  2. If you check out a few of the related post at the bottom of this article there are many comments in them that might help you out, especially here.

    From the sounds of your problem, you are experiencing the DNS Relay bug that was introduced with firmware 1.32, information on it can be found here. The easiest way to get around the locking up is to turn off the DNS Relay feature of the router.

  3. Thx. I have turned off the DNS relay. Will see how that goes. Just had a lock up a couple of minutes ago so I started googlind d-link dir-655 1.32 firmware and i got back to this page.

  4. At least do you know, has d-link said anything about their crappy firmware, is it being fixed, or should I take the axe and start hacking away? Poor device, I really like my router, but the orangutans from D-Link are making crazy. If I ever catch one of them I’ll make him/her eat the router with the antennas connected and while pluged in the outlet in one swallow. And that will be the last time I come in contact with anything from D-Link.

    I’m so sorry I upgraded the firmware, I can’t downgrade, I’m (we all are) at their mercy.

    If it’s not broken don’t fix it. Damn….

  5. The axe seems like it might be a good idea this stage, but the fact that firmware existed at one stage that actually worked makes me think if people complain enough they might revert some of the changes that broke it.

    However according to some people they may be using a standardised firmware for their latest products so getting things fixed might not be as easy as it should normally be.

  6. I am experiencing the exact same issue as toto. I was so happy with my firmware 1.21 until I had the stupid idea to upgrade to 1.32 and have my connection drop every hour!

    However, there could be hope, I found this:
    DIR-655 Firmware Release Notes

    Firmware: 1.32b09NA Beta
    Date: 11/11/09

    1. Corrects DNS Relay issue.

    Can be found at ยปftp://ftp.dlink.com/Gateway/dir655/Beta/Firmware/

    But I am dubious to try new things at that stage… Anyone tried?

  7. Yep, posted about it here, I am hesitant to recommend it to people because they have basically said that if the firmware messes up your router, they won’t replace/fix it.

    However I don’t see anything wrong with using it, you can always go back to the earlier 3.x series firmwares, it seems a little early to find out if it definitely works at this stage.

  8. So has anyone tried the beta FW yet? DNS relay issue fixed? No? Bricked router? I’m hesitant to try it… Thanks!

  9. I’ve tried the new beta firmware too, and I have no problems for over a month now. It seems to have fix the dns problem.

    the link you were redirected too , wasn’t that for securespot / whatever it’s called?
    I have disabled that as I use my providers dns servers (less than 1 ms ping reply and I trust them. no problem so far with them. And I don’t have enough net to spare…

    Hopefully they will release a european non-beta firmware so I can get back to the EU firmware (not that I have something against US ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

  10. My Dir655 is stable with this firmware version “dir655_fw_132b09NA_beta.zip” so it’s ‘OK’ for me.
    Beta is no problem for me, if it works, it is good ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Hi there!

    I am having problems upgrading my D655 from 1.31 to 1.32, after the upgrade process it says is still in 1.31…

    So, anyone knows what’s happening?


  12. Hi,
    I found a different bug with the 1.3 versions of the firmware. I don’t know if it affects the older versions, since you can’t downgrade from 1.3.

    The bug is that if you enter for the NTP server a hostname that resolves to multiple addresses, e.g. pool.ntp.org, the WAN link effectively dies–greater than 70% packet loss and very high latency. The admin web page also becomes unstable.

    If you disconnect the WAN cable so that you can get to the admin page again, if you disable NTP or change it to a name that resolves to one server (e.g. ntp1.dlink.com), then everything works again.

    I’ve reported this to DLink….

  13. After I upgrade from 1.11 to 132b09NA I have problem’s with power cycles, rooter restart’s very often,
    so i back to 1.31 and with DNR Relay Disabled it’s work fine

  14. I’m using the latest firmware and i am truly dissapointed, the connections table doesn’t clear up so i have to pull the power cord just it’ll release the connections… i’ve read that this is a very common problem with routers, but why, just clear the damn connections table and there are no settings to force it to either… any help, suggestions?

  15. The best suggestion is to wait for D-Link as there aren’t really any more things that can be done on the user side to get these working again, but if you’re the adventurous type you can try the B09 build of the firmware that is supposed to fix one type of lockup issue.

  16. I just realized that the N standard has been ratified, so thought I’d check if there is newer firmware for my dir655 A3. I’m still running 1.21 2008/10/09 After seeing all the problems listed here and the fact that my router seems to work great , I can’t see any reason for upgrading my firmware.

  17. 1.21 is a great firmware version and the newer versions don’t really add much, especially if you’re having no issues with 1.21.
