Latest firmware?
June 20, 2012, 08:47:53 AM

That is the latest and greatest for this  router.
Even though Dlink has not posted it, you have the most resent version:

modem dsl-320t and dir-600 router not working
What ISP Modem do you have? Stand Alone or built in router?
What ISP Modem make and model do you have?
If this modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems.
To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged.
I would contact the ISP and have them help you bridge the modem if possible.
Check cable between Modem and Router, swap out to be sure. Cat 53 or Cat6 is recommended.
if I use only the modem in PPPoE, I can correctly connect to internet and surfing, if I connect the dir-600 router to another philips router I can again correctly connect to internet and surfing, if I connect the dsl-320t modem to the dir-600 router it doesn't work.
Should I set the modem in bridge mode even if it hasn't a built-in router ? if yes, should I keep the dhcp enabled or not ? what about the firewall and the nat, always on the modem configuration pages ?
Yes bridge the modem. Youll need to use ur act info on the router under setup/internet/manual/connection type. Bridging will turn odd any dhcp services on the modem.

i set the modem in bridge mode, saved and rebooted the device

than I've connected the DIR-600 to the bridged modem and entered the gateway address in browser, and navigated to setup manual configuration.
Is this the screen you was talking about in the previous post ?

I followed this guide but then I am lost about how to connect the AP to the wireless router. And how to use the same SSID. Should I setup WPS?

If your turning your router into an AP, yes, it has to be wired.
Dlink routers don't have the bridge option?
No, they do not. DAP models have bridging options.
Manual (go to page 12)
To connect the router to a LAN with an another router and to see the configuration pages under
disable uPnP
disable DHCP
Change the LAN configuration of the PC netcard to an free IP
After changes of network segment ... Don't forget to renew the IP:
ipconfig /renew

AFTER ALL-wireless_router_security
To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router's wireless settings configured and also the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). The encryption key can be easily set up using a passphrase (it can be an alpha numeric phrase or words).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router via the wireless connection.
For the computers and laptops to connect to the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem with a LAN cable to the WAN (Internet) port on the router.
Moving on: setting up the D-Link DIR-600 is pretty straight forward.
Connect your xDSL or Cable Modem to the WAN port on the router (skip this if you are going to use it as an Access Point)
  1. Using the supplied (or not) ethernet cable, connect your computer to the router’s LAN1 port.
  2. Run the installation CD and follow the On-Screen instructions.
After the installation/setup completes, you will be able to log into the router’s administration panel by pointing your browser to
By default, your username is “admin” and no password is assigned, so just leave the password field blank and click on the “Log In” button.

Advanced Setup

I rarely recommend you to keep the basic settings, so here’s what I recommend you to do:
  1. Log into the router by pointing your browser to (again, the username is admin and the password should be blank by default)
  2. Click on “Manual Internet Connection Setup” (see screenshot below)
  3. [...]

I cannot access the Web-based Configuration Utility from theEthernet computer used to configure the router
Check whether the LAN LED is on. If the LED is not on, verify the cable for theLAN connection is firmly connected. 
Check whether the computer resides on the same subnet with the router’sLAN IP address.
If the computer acts as a DHCP client, check whether the computer has been assigned an IP address from the DHCP server. If not, you will need to renew the IP address. 

ipconfig /renew
Use the ping command to ping the router’s LAN IP address to verify the connection.
Make sure your browser is not configured to use a proxy server. 
Check that the IP address you entered is correct. 
If the router’s LAN IPaddress has been changed, you should enter the reassigned IP address instead.
