D-Link DSM-520 Downgrade

A new firmware for the D-Link DSM-520 MediaLounge, version 1.04, was recently released. It has given nothing but troubles. I had to downgrade to version 1.02. Here's how I did it:

VERSION='1.05'
LOCATION='DSM520_2006.06.12-2043__1.02'
  • Place both files on an anonymous ftp server. If you don't have one, you can use mine.
  • Go to the setup screen on your DSM-520.
  • Go to the version info screen.
  • Hit the following keys on the remote:
menu
pageup
pageup
pagedown

  • You should see a screen with the location of the D-Link ftp site. Modify the URL to point to your anonymous ftp server location.
  • Save the settings and instruct the DSM-520 to check for new updates.


Don't forget to turn off auto-update once the system has been downgraded or it'll keep on bugging you about it.
