Where can I download router driver for D-link?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I recently purchased a used D-link DGL-5500 Gaming Router with VPN pass through and WPA2 security but it came without the software. Where can I download router driver for DGL-5500? Would it also be compatible with Windows 8 because I'm planning to upgrade my OS.

Hi there,
The best way to find the proper driver for your device is to check at the D-link web page. They have an awesome support and just in case you aren't able to find what you are looking for I'm sure they'll do their best to deliver you the missing software.
The answer to your second question would be – yes, it will be compatible with your Windows 8.

Hi Pam Gouin,

Your router is compatible with windows 8. But I've searched on web for Driver software for your descriptive product but I've not found any for your product.

But don't worried about it. I think you want to change the settings of the router. Though I'm not a professional but several times I changed router settings by following way.

Firstly resets your router. To do it you will find a reset tiny hole on your router press it with a pin. Now your router will be set to factory default setting. (Sometimes need to do for several times)

At first connect the router with your PC with LAN cable (connect on LAN port of the router).

IP addresses according to router

Then change your PC's IP addresses according to router. Like (if DHCP enabled on the router then no need to change IP. To check this just skip this step try the next step before this step)

Now open a browser and type router's default IP on address bar & press Enter key. Like

Now you will be asked for User Name & Password. There you should give a default user name & password. ( Generally it is written on the router. But if you failed after putting correctly then you must ask the seller for settings. ) For your router it is as below;

 Default IP address:
 Default admin username: Admin
 Default admin password: (Blank)

Now you will log into the router built-in software & change settings as you wish.

If you failed, then please ask the seller for settings that he changed to router (Like IP, username, password etc.).
