Dlink DI-524 Firmware Problems

I have a Dlink di-524 wireless router and it had been giving me some problems i.e. randomly loseing connection, etc. So I decided to upgrade the firmware. I downloaded the firmware for the correct revision and updated it through the web interface. I have revision d1 and upgraded tp version 4.03. After I did this, it would not fully boot up anymore, meaning,  the status light just continues to blink. I tried resetting a number of different ways, including a hard-reset for 30 seconds with the power off.

I am stuck and need some expert advice on how to get back into my router to either revert to the factory default firmware or get the current one working.

Thanks

Use the hard reset with the power on...not off.

Hold it for about 15 seconds, you will see the lights flash on the front...then let go.  Then..Try to get into the web interface with default user/pass.

Unplug the power from the router. Hold in the reset button and plug the power back in. Continue holding for 10 seconds and then release.

Statically assign an IP address to your computer in the same IP subnet range: 192.168.0.x where x is any number between 2 and 254. Your Subnet Mask should be 255.255.255.0.

Open Internet Explorer and browse to 192.168.0.1. You should see the crash recovery page. You might download 4.0 firmware and try it.....Browse to the location of the firmware on your hard-drive and click the send button.
