Firmware Update D-Link DES-3528

Using an example, I will update the firmware of the D-Link DES-3528 switch.

To get started, download the latest firmware from the official forum
http://forum.dlink.ru/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=92700

Unpack the downloaded archive and transfer the firmware files to the tftp server. How to start and configure a tftp server can be found in my articles:
Starting a TFTP server in Windows
Installing and Configuring a TFTP Server in Ubuntu

Connect to the switch via telnet or console and see the firmware information:

show firm info

If the bootloader is old, then it can be updated by executing the command (ATTENTION! Factory settings will be reset!):

download firmware_fromTFTP 192.168.1.1 src_file DES-3528_Series_FW_v1.03.B013.had

Actually, the firmware itself can be downloaded to the switch with the following command (the settings will be saved after updating the firmware):

download firmware_fromTFTP 192.168.1.1 src_file DES35xx_3.10.B052.had image_id 2

Let’s make the downloaded firmware the main one:

config firmware image_id 2 boot_up

Reboot the switch so that it starts with the new firmware:

reboot

That’s all.

Did my article help you? How about buying me a cup of coffee as an encouragement? Buy me a coffe.
