Hello all,
I have been trying to flash my DIR-301 using the instructions on the following website: http://www.shadowandy.net/2007/09/mini-flashing-guide-for-dir-300.htm
Considering that the hardware is supposed to be the same. I am setting my pc to the address of 192.168.20.80/255.255.255.0 and trying to do a “ping 192.168.20.81 –t”.
After the first seconds I powered on the router while holding the reset button (as per the guides instructions). The problem is that first the ping does not report an active host on the IP address and therefore I cant get into redboot to flash the firmware.
Has anyone else encountered a similar problem with the DIR-301? Does anyone know of a solution?
Thanks in advance!

Same problem here, thought just like you that it should work cause according to D-Link its identical to the DIR-300.

someone needs to add a serial adapter to find out the new settings.

View the second post, that is the pinout for the serial console on the board.
