unlocking a router

Hi all
I have decided to try to web post for a bit, mainly because I am to lazy to run the mail updater script.
Ok, whats new.
java 6.25 is out.
I have intel drivers 13 and 16 for wireless and network but thats small.

Here are basic instructions on how to unlock/ hack a dynalink router.

This is not alegal, this will unlock a router from an isp.
This is needed if you have an isp router and you want to transfer it from isp to isp.
This applies if you will transfer from isp to isp by using other isp software but will also apply when switching to generic firmware.

This can be done for any router.
1. download from your cd the quickstart guide.
Note the ip address dlink is 10.1.1.1
dynalink is a strange large crazy ip with several 3 digit combos.
its all there in the firmware instructions which with adobe and nvda works.
you can convert it ofcause, if you use acrobat in prefs make sure its not protected else it won’t work at all.
Follow the instructions, in dlink its tools/admin/firmware.
in this its management/update firmware.
Firstly, there is the point of getting the firmware.
Each system is different.
You will need the numbers and model and revision number from the router, and the manual to do this.
For dlink the easiest way to do it for nz users is to ftp to files.dlink.com.au
click products then find say dslg604t or whatever.
select the revision b or c the firmware nz or otherwise the latest file you can download the web folder, and install the image on the right screen by hitting brouse and then update, in dynalink brouse is just an unlabeled button.

In dlink its all imagelinks and graphic icons. in dynalink its graphics icons and menus.
to download dynalink I found it good to go to www.dynalink.co.nz
click products then search for my model being rta1025w.
in there download all manuals and data sheets 3 pdfs.
download the firmware zip file from supported files.
you need to read the pdf instructions.
pdf2txt from www.empowermentzone.com/p2tsetup.exe will work for converting them.

After you update with the update button it works just wait for the menu to pop back.
in dlink you will here your brouser navigation bar refresh, the main page will work and just log off and back on and then update firmware to check your version is loaded.

Other notes.

There are 2 procedures to getting the things done.
1. your connecting to the net.
in dynalink click connect to the net in dlink click start wizzard and follow the simple steps.
also change your password to something other than admin.
in dlink its adv/admin then change your password there.

Not sure about dynalink.
Connect your router to the wall or what ever connect your devices to it and you will be fine.
Straighten out the wireless antena, if you have a need of feet, like a dlink put those in on the end of the router.

The other procedure applies to admins with a net connection already, that wish to update.
You don’t need net connection yet though we will cover testing this later on in another article.

Get a small 1 meter net cable and attach one end to the router the other to the pc.
Leave your net connection cable that you already have out of the socket on the pc.
With a long screwdriver or simular sharp tool press the reset button, and hold for 5 seconds.
THe buttons can be loaced near the powerjacks or on the back of the system.
The reason for this reset is because routers you get will sertainly have settings for other isps or whatever unless its new from the shop.
You may need to run network setup to connect with the new configuration.
then you will have to do that again when connecting to the other router once the origional router is plugged back in to the pc.
And thats that.
later all.
