How do I back up the router’s configuration to my computer?

All Modes

Step 1: Make sure your computer or mobile device is connected to the DIR-505 by Wi-Fi. Open your web browser and enter http://dlinkrouter or http://dlinkrouter.local into the address bar.


Step 2: At the login page, enter the Admin Password. If you have not changed the administrator password, leave the field blank. Click Log In.


Step 3: Move the cursor to the Maintenance tab at the top of the page and then click Firmware from the menu on the left-hand side.



Step 4: Next to Save Settings To Local Hard Drive, click the Save button. Depending on your browser, a ‘File Download’ dialog may appear, allowing you to select a location and file name for the settings file. The file may also be automatically saved to your default ‘Downloads’ folder.
