How to change IP address and subnet temporarily
« on: May 23, 2015, 11:19:47 am »
Hi Pepperminters!

I have a bricked D-link DIR-615 router and I need to change temporarily the ip address and subnet of  my laptop in order to upload the .bin file 192.168.0.1 and restore from the settings. How can I change the ip address temporarily without screwing-up the ethernet network. These are the steps I need to do:

set your PC to 192.168.0.2
power on and hold the reset button to the DIR-615
once you see the power light flashing amber once a second, log into http://192.168.0.1
upload the .bin file.

If this is a cabled (ehternet) connection...

menu > Preferences > Network Connections

Highlight the Wired Ethernet connection (usually "wired connection 1") and hit the  "Edit" button

Select the "IPv4 Settings" tab

Set:-
Method: Manual

Address: 192.168.0.2
Netmask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1

Additional DNS Servers: 192.168.0.1


Hit the "Save" button.

Right-click on the newtorkmanager icon in the system tray (by the clock) and select ""Enable Networking" (to remove the tick), then right-click on the newtorkmanager icon in the system tray (by the clock) and select ""Enable Networking" (to add the tick back and re-enablenetworking).

Open your web browser and go to
http://192.168.0.1

upload your .bin file.

Once done .. go back in to the network settings (IPv4 tab) and change them back to how they were originally .. then disable/re-enable networking again.
