A little adventure with D-Link DSL-G624T

June 2, 2018

Today I needed a device that beside being a wired switch can also act as a DHCP server. I dug into my treasure trove of abandoned devices and pulled out an old D-Link DSL-G624T wireless router.

Holding down the reset button defaulted it almost exactly into a state of my expectations. I was able to connect to the device of interest from my Ubuntu laptop. Except that DSL-G624T also pulled up an insecure WLAN connection.

Naturally it also provides an admin web interface. Except that I was greeted by a blank page. The router also provides a Busybox server over a telnet connection but this is perhaps an adventurous for a different time.

Instead I connected to the router with another laptop running Windows. Behold, the familiar interface loaded on the first try.
