D-Link DIR-600 and VPN
The DIR-600 is a wireless router with one 10/100Base-T WAN port and four 10/100Base-T LAN ports. It uses Quality of Service (QoS) to prioritize the traffic over the network.
The integrated access point complies with IEEE 802.11n (draft 2.0) standards, providing wireless transmission speeds of up to 150Mbps. It supports WEP and WPA/WPA2 wireless encryption. A WPS button allows for worry-free wireless security configuration.

The router provides VPN pass-through for IPSec, L2TP and PPTP. It features a built-in SPI firewall to protect the network from malicious attacks.

(Redirected from DIR-600)
This page also applies to the DLink DIR-300 Rev.B


  • 1 Hardware
    It is important to note, DIR-300 Rev A1 and Rev B1 are completely different hardware, different SoC, different procedure. So, if you have the old DIR-300 Rev A router, its install procedure is already well documented elsewhere. Rev B1 is based on Ralink RT3050 SoC and from all accounts, including Dlink's FCC test report, the PCBA is exactly the same as in the DIR-600.
    You can tell which Rev of the hardware this router is from the box (it will say "H/W Ver: B1 F/W Ver 2.00" for example on the bottom of the box, underneath the barcode. "H/W Ver.: B5 F/W Ver.: 2.10" is not supported and does not work. ). A similar sticker with the hardware version and firmware version is also stuck on the bottom of the router itself. This means it's quick and easy to check the hardware revision before buying or borrowing it.
    The factory default IP for this router is, user is "admin", password is blank.

    [edit]Pros of this hardware

    • 4 MB board, so no need to use "micro" DD-WRT builds.
    • Fairly inexpensive.
    • Fairly new hardware (released in 2009?), so it's widely available for purchase new.
    • Reasonably fast CPU clock speed.
    • Easy to install DD-WRT on this hardware (just flash through the web interface as per below, and you're done).
    • According to Ralink's website, the chip has a ROM built-in and this means there is no boot code to crash or mistakenly erase. The ROM contains a bootloader and emergency room web page to recover flash firmware. Translation: You're unlikey to brick it.

    [edit]Cons of this hardware

    • This Ralink hardware does not support Client Bridge wireless mode ( reference ). It does however supportRepeater Bridge mode, which is similar, but a bit more complicated to set up.
    • No USB port, so cannot be a NAS for a USB drive, nor can it be used for Printer Sharing of a USB printer.
    • As it is Ralink chipset based, support by DD-WRT is still limited in terms of firmware builds availability and community support compared to Broadcom based routers. Currently the only build from BrainSlayer doesn't include JFFS/CIFS client support.
    • The LAN Port based VLAN is not supported. You can not assign the LAN Ports with VLAN. However, there may be a workaround for VLAN support on the DIR-600.

Does D-Link DIR-600 support Tomato?

TomatoVPN on DIR-600
Tomato is a small, lean and simple replacement firmware for Linksys' WRT54G/GL/GSBuffalo WHR-G54S/WHR-HP-G54 and other Broadcom-based routers. It features a new easy to use GUI, a new bandwidth usage monitor, more advanced QOS and access restrictions, enables new wireless features such as WDS and wireless client modes, raises the limits on maximum connections for P2P, allows you to run your custom scripts or telnet/ssh in and do all sorts of things like re-program the SES/AOSS button, adds wireless site survey to see your wifi neighbors, and more.

The build script is currently not run on trunk so no official binary is available.
Build from trunk as the latest release branch 'backfire' doesn't have the build target files. For more information about building see the build documentation.
svn co svn://
# Build configuration. From 'make menuconfig'; Target system: Ralink RT288x/RT3xxx, Subtarget: RT305x based boards
echo CONFIG_TARGET_ramips=y >.config
echo CONFIG_TARGET_ramips_rt305x=y >>.config
echo CONFIG_TARGET_ramips_rt305x_Default=y >>.config
When the build process is done (yes, this could take several hours), flash the appropriate generated (openwrt-*-squashfs-factory.bin) file from web interface or from recovery mode (turn off; hold reset; turn on; go tohttp:// or Use the file matching your router model (IE: openwrt-dir-600-b2-squashfs-factory.bin for DIR-600-b2)

Older trunk revisions (DIR-300-B1 and DIR-600-B2 ONLY)

If using an older trunk revision (pre r27808) you may need to convert the obtained OpenWrt firmware image file into a specific dir-300 or dir-600 format before flashing. For this you require the v2image utility included in
  • For DIR-300 B1 Execute:
    v2image -v -i openwrt-ramips-rt305x-dir-300-b1-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin -o openwrt-dir300b1-squashfs-webflash.bin -d /dev/mtdblock/2 -s wrgn23_dlwbr_dir300b
  • For DIR-600 B2 Execute:

Problem on standard factory firmware:
DIR-600 - VPN problem and solution
Using WinXP, Cisco anyconnect VPN client here.
Problem: VPN doesn't connect / Connects but "actually" not connected.
Setting to be done on the router: 
Here are the steps. 
Step 1 is probably not needed but I am posting it just in case. 
Only Step 2 should fix it.

[1] Go to advanced tab - Advanced Port Forwarding Rules ( and configure like this: ; Click save settings.
[2] Now go to FIREWALL and DMZ SETTINGS ( and configure like this: (1st 2 entries are present if you've done step 1, the 2rd entry has to be done manually);
Click save settings.
and restart the router
Tadaa!  :D
Note: It's UDP-443 with Anyconnect, maybe a different port for a different VPN client. Find that and configure accordingly.
Reply back if this worked with anybody else.
So i see here: that D-Link Dir 600 is for VNP and i have one and i installed dd-wrt on it and it has no open vnp option on server- vnp ust pptp

any help?
You and I are out of luck (as many others, perhaps). I have the very same router (Version B1 / B2 Chipset RT3052F) and the same problem, NO OPENVPN, just PPTP SERVER and PPTP CLIENT.
Last night, I tried to flash this firmware: WHR-G300N-openvpn-webflash.bin to no avail.
OpenVPN-yes, Wireless - yes and all menus appeared as expected  (OpenVPN included) but ETHERNET PORTS completely dead. I had no problem to make it work back with former firmware.
Wanna give it a try to WHR-G300N-openvpn-webflash.bin?
This thread gave me the idea: 
Worked but it has a problen seting up a the OpenVNP doesnt have the commands so its useless
Anleitung zur Nutzung eines D-Link WLAN Routers als Accesspoint



Beim ersten Versuch hat alles super geklappt, hab im Explorer die eingegeben etc... Netzwerk eingerichtet und gut ist. Und just ab diesem Moment geht gar nichts mehr. 
Auch als ich ganz kurz am Anfang im Internet war, bevor ich den Router eingestellt habe, hatte ich anstatt einer bestellten 32er Leitung nen DL von max 2kbits... 
Naja da ich dann alles Versucht habe (Reset, 1000 mal An und Aus, Modem an und aus, CD-Installation und haste nicht gesehn) hab ich es aufgegeben und bin jetzt direkt per LAN ans Modem angeschlossen, klappt perfekt keine Problem volle Brandbreite, aber das ist ja nicht der Sinn der Sache.
Eine Sache noch die mir aufgefallen ist, wenn ich den Router ans Modem anschließe blinkt die "Online"-Lampe am Modem Orange statt wie jetzt grün und beim Router flackert das Online-Symbol, was laut Handbuch nicht so sein sollte! Des weiteren, wenn ich mich per LAN an den Router hänge flackert auch nur das jeweilige Lämpchen (1-4) und mein Laptop springt zwischen nicht identifizierten Netzwerk und gar keinem Netzwerk hin und her.
Als letzten Hinweis, habe heute morgen einen neuen Router bekommen von UM da die das Problem nicht kennen und davon ausgehen dass der andere kaputt ist. Um es kurz zu machen, genau der selbe scheiß!
Also du hast dein Modem an den Wan Port (der ist bei der Version glaube grau und die normalen sind gelb) deines Routers gehängt und im Router eingestellt "keine Zugangsdaten erforderlich" ?

Wenn ja dann hast du da alles richtig gemacht.
bleibt nur noch die Frage ob du das W-lan richtig eingerichtet hast und dem Router eine andere IP als dem Modem gegeben hast. (ich empfehle für den Router die
oder eben die und subnetzwerk
und zwar am besten konfigurieren ohne,dass das Modem angeschlossen ist.
sonst haben die permanent einen Adressenkonflikt
