Router Firmware Update

Q: Router Firmware Update

I have a netgear wnr1000 v2. I have been in the router settings and had it check for the latest firmware. It tells me I have the latest and that version is 1.0.0.12NA. Now, when I go to the netgear website and look up my router here: http://downloadcenter.netgear.com/ it says the latest version is 1.1.2.54. So I download it and go to install it to my router and get the error "Firmware upgrade failed. Please check your file." I know it's the right file. Only 3 files are in the installation and they are .html, .img, and .txt, and the image file is the installation one.

Preferred Solution: Router Firmware Update

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

linksys wrt54g v3.1 firmware update will not load.

I unzipped the file, held the reset for 1 minute, unplugged for a minute (and then did some emails - would that be a problem?) then went to admin/firmware, selected the file, clicked "update" the web page, for 20 minutes, read:

This webpage is not available.

The webpage at http://192.168.1.1/upgrade.cgi might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

More information on this error
Below is the original error message

Error 2 (net::ERR_FAILED): Unknown error.

Any advice? They want 30 dollars to help me update this router: I don't have that.

I'm running XP.

Thanks in advance,

We've recently installed a Level One FBR-1461 modem/router on a network with a fixed IP address. We need remote administration but that's not available with the early firmware version installed. A firmware update (via zip/afw file) was sent by Level One tech support in Germany, but not accepted by the router.

File is:

LevelOne-FBR-1461A-V1.35-RC24-180-80.3_sso_levelone.afw (about 3.5Mb)

I've tried shortening the file name to (perhaps) a more acceptable length, but the router will not accept the upgrade.

Has anyone else had problems or found a solution?

Hi

I am experiencing intermittant connectivity issues and am wondering, whether amongst other thing I should update firmware. ( Have downloaded the microsoft patch) For some reason my internet connection drops every 2/3 days

The version of firmware that I can see is running from the DLink control panel is R 2.01.b5nz. I have no idea if this is the latest. If I need to update, does anyone know how I should do it. I am rather reluctant to do this as I don't wont to "bomb" my computer.

Many thanks

Hello.
I have been having a problem updating the firmware on my TRENDnet TEW-432BRP wireless router. When I try to update the firmware by going to the device webpage, I click on 'firmware' and click 'browse' to select the firmware file, the internet browser freezes and crashes. Any Ideas?
Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Router firmware update problem

Doesn't make much sense to me; as soon as you click on 'browse' it really has nothing to do with the router I think.

With your browser if you do File - Open File... - do you get the same crash? If yes you have some general browser problem. If you don't crash this way I have no idea what's going wrong, and would try a different browser.

FWIW I am using the same router and, at the moment, Firefox 10.0 in Windows XP SP3 and have no issues with 'browse' for a file.

I just recently updated my firmware on my linksys router WRT54G with the new version of linksys firm ware and now my router does not work. I can not access the GUI under the ip address 192.168.1.1. I 've tried to reboot the router using the 30/30 method that is suggested by Linksys, but I still can not access the routers GUI. Please advise if there is another method to set back the routers firmware.
 

A:Update firmware on Linksys router WRT54G version 2

Try 192.168.1.0.

I don't believe that the router saves any copy of the old firmware to set back to.

I'd recommend the DD-WRT firmware.

Was it the wrong firmware? Was it for your chipset version? Was the firmware for G, or GS, or other?

When I go to http://192.168.15.1, which is the Linksys webpage for my Linksys RT41-BU wired router, it shows the firmware version as 1.01.0

A firmware update at the Linksys site has the filename RT41_BU_1[1].1.0.003_sym_code.bin

I'm not really sure if this is an update for the current version. Can someone decipher the file name and tell me?

Also, would updating the firmware be of any benefit?

I recently bought a Netgear FVG318 router. It seemed to slow down my network a bit and generally didn't behave perfectly.

I checked its firmware version and saw that it was over a year old. So I downloaded the latest firmware (.bin) file and used the http connection to upload it to the router. About halfway into the update process, the router crashed. I got a "unable to connect" message in my browser window and the router stopped functioning. When I turn the router on, all that happens is that all the green lights flash every five seconds.

There were further problems when I try to reset the router. After I press the reset button, the "Test" light starts blinking as it should, but it never stops. I kept it blinking for over an hour and then manually rebooted it. I get the same behavior as before.

Is there any way to do a firmware downgrade on a Linksys BEFW11S4 Wireless Broadband router? Ever since I upgraded the firmware, I have been having all kinds of problems with my connections quitting. I have tried logging onto the router to downgrade to the original firmware but it fails every time. I am getting sick of unplugging the router and restarting the modem every time this happens. My connection to the internet won't even last a day before it quits! If it is not possible to downgrade is there ANY way to fix my problem without going out and buying a new router?
 

A:Router Firmware

There should be a reset button on the back of the router. This will reset everything to default so you'll need to reconfigure everything.

DD-WRT is great, but I would look into powerline adapters if you are streaming video. You get much better throughput and is less of a load on the router.

A:Can A Printer Firmware Update And/or Driver Update Be Reversed?

You can go to Device Manager and find the printer and in properties it gives you the option to "roll back" the driver to a previous version. A firmware update and driver update mean 2 different things, to me anyways. My understanding is a firmware update offers "improved" instructions to the onboard chip of the device. What does HP say about the problem?

Hi all. I have a Linksys WRT54GL v1.1. I'm currently using the DD-WRT v23 SP1 firmware. I see that DD-WRT v24 SP1 is out, but that I'm actually recommended to use the SP2 beta.

Anyways, being a bit of a networking noob, I have one simple question:

Is there any point to me flashing and upgrading my router to the newest firmware builds? I'm experiencing no issues to speak of currently. Hoping there are some guru's here that can let me know what I should do.

A:Upgrading Router Firmware?

Honestly, if you aren't having problems and the new firmware version doesn't provide some sort of feature that you need...I wouldn't suggest it.

I once upgraded the firmware of my router to try to alleviate a problem I was having with dropped packed. It was a Linksys and I was using the Cisco based firmware. Well, once applied, the router rebooted everytime I ran a traceroute command. Which was real bad since my ISP was coming out the next day and would clearly have a case for blaming my router when a simple traceroute caused it to reboot. It took a few hours with Linksys on the phone to determine the problem was in the firmware and they got me back to the old firmware and the problem went away. And I've left it there to this day.

A great thing to follow with computers and networking equipment is "If it is not broken, don't fix it." This is something that always gets me in trouble because I like to tinker with my computer, router, and etc.

If your router has been working just fine for the last 3 years then I think upgrading the firmware is optional.

A:Firmware for Wireless Router

Hi there

The main reason for wireless slow downs is interference. To learn about channel interference SEE HERE. There is also a great article by Microsoft that proposes other sources of interference, and how to fix this HERE .
As for installing DD-WRT, just right click HERE , Save As... and save it somewhere where you will find it later. Then navigate to "Firmware Upgrade" in your router's configuration GUI. Select the file you downloaded and begin the firmware upgrade. After it finishes, go to Administration -> Factory Defaults, select YES to reset to defaults.

You can then proceed to install the standard or mega versions of DD-WRT by using the generic download files and following the same process as above.

A:Router Firmware - BIN File?

go to your routers homepage Ex. http://192.168.x.x

Once your in your routers homepage go click on the administration tab , once the adminstration tab is clicked , a line below provides you several options to select from. Select the (firmware upgrade ).

in there it will say

Please select a file to upgrade ______________________ Browse

click on the browse button and locate where you saved your firmware bin file

i would usually save the bin file to my desktop for the simple reason its easy to locate.

once you locate your file scroll down and click on upgrade. This may take a few seconds and when the meter is done click on the continue button and u should have an updated firmware for your router

Has anyone done this?

Based on post at lifehacker.com, the hack is supposed to give your router more features and allow you to tweak the router's settings.

Hi all,

I have a wrt54GL router, and I was wondering what people thought of various firmwares?

Right now I'm using X-wrt, but to be honest I don't really like some of it's gui.

What would people suggest? I was thinking about using Gargoyle, but I'm not too sure how stable it is: http://www.gargoyle-router.com. It seems to have a lot of nice features, such as an easy to use (unlike X/openwrt) QoS utility and bandwidth quotas.

Maybe DD-Wrt or tomato as well, but I wanted to get some input.

Thanks!

I have a Linksys BEFSR41 ver3 Cable/DSL firewall router.
I can access it OK, but each time I go to instal the most recent firmware, I get an error code..'incorrect host address' if I use the installer or error code 'Warning! upgrade file pattern error' if I upgrade through the router.

I have double checked to make sure I have the proper upgrade, and have sucessfully flashed this router in the past.
I reflashed the router with 1.05.00, which is what I started with and it accepted it.
But still does not accept 1.46.02

It seems the firmware version numbers have a bit of 'distance' between them and I do wonder if the Linksys posting is correct:
LINKSYS

Any ideas on what might be wrong?

So I'm thinking my router is going bad, but I want to try a firmware upgrade before buying a new one. When I go to the netgear download site, it gives me instructions for installing the new firmware and among those instructions is:

Write down all settings that you entered when previously configuring. (Usually this includes information such as ISP configuration and wireless security settings.)

I actually have no idea what those settings are because A) it was years ago, and B) someone else did it. How do I find out these settings and get the new firmware to work properly?
 

A:Upgrading router firmware and don't know info

i have always had netgear routers for wireless. i have mine plugged into a modem. if the router is really old u might be better off with a new one as they are a lot faster. my first one was 11mbs. my new one is 54mbs.if u decide to buy a new one just unplug the one wire from the computer and leave the rest plugged in and shut off the computer and modem and router and shut off the surge protector if its plugged into one. when u get the new router put the plug in that u saved from the old router that went into the computer and turn on the computer. then turn on your modem, then turn on the router. the instructions usually give u the correct order and im going from memory.if its done right u wont even need the install disk as it should find the router automatically.and u should have an internet.then if u want to have a password u can go to the website and add one. hope this helps u.

I recently decided to upgrade the firmware to my Linksys router. Although I wasn't technically experiencing any issues before the upgrade, my previous version did not include WPA encryption like the newest version.

Since I performed the upgrade, my connectivity is lost anywhere between 2 and 6 times a day. I have isolated this issue to the router by directly connection the computer to the cable modem (no problem then persists). Additionally, the WPA encryption never worked. Whenever I applied a WPA PSK, for some reason, the wireless signal would decrease to virtually non-existent.

Do I need to downgrade the firmware? Does anyone know how I go about doing that?

Thanks!

any one out there know how to talk to the router so I can get it back and runing.

Hi Bertison and welcome

You certainly can use the Vista instructions and installer if you install in compatibility mode.

To do that you simply right click the installer, go to properties, then compatibility. Choose Vista and install.

Let us know if you need further assistance.

Does anyone know how to get the router back to life? How can I install firmware when I can't access the web interface? Do I now have a paper weight?

If you have the user guide, their is somes intructions on how to recover a failed firmware upgrade, they mention to use the tftp program that came with the upgrade. You can try to reset you router to factory default (not sure if it will work)
to do so you have to press the reset button for 3 sec or more.
Also one recommendation: NEVER upgrade the firmware of a router thru a wireless connection, use a wired connection.

A:Router Firmware: Should I Upgrade for Access Point?

you said it already "if it aint broke ..."

get the A/P and wire it to one of the BEFSR41 ports. disable the DHCP service in it
and your wifi connections will be on the same subnet as the wired users.

if you want them isolated, leave DHCP active and change the A/P address to
something different than your BEFSR41; this will inhibit routing between the two
while still allowing both to have Internet access.

Not from the #1 name in alternative firmware; DD WRT!

Their website says this regarding support for that router:




Quote:
"Currently we cannot support this router due to the lack of driver support for the ethernet switch used in the router. We are currently in contact with Linksys and check if we can solve this issue but it's completely uncertain if and when. "


There are others out there such as OpenWRT, Tomatoe, and SveaSoft... but you will probably have the same issue with them that dd wrt describes above.

My wifi router stopped working so I grabbed an old Netgear out of the closet. I have the wifi password and can connect to the internet fine but I guess I changed the default password at some point and cannot remember what it was.

I could take it to work and connect it with a cable if i need to, right? I'd like to avoid that, and if possible avoid having to go buy a cable. Is there a way to recover my password wirelessly or some other creative solution? Again, I do have the WPA2 password.

If so, you are missing some files from your OS, to proceed to fix this, you need to have an XP CD. You can borrow one, or you can get one on Ebay or Craigslist.
Then go to Start/Run and type SFC /scannow put the XP CD in and it will replace any missing files from the CD.

Im not sure how to update my firmware. Im having trouble burning CD-Rs with nero 7.0 because it keeps coming up with this calibration error. I posted that thread in this same forum ( http://forums.techguy.org/multimedia/453562-nero-issues-data-disks.html)
but it just leads to this new question about updating my firmware because it might be a possibility. Im also running SP1.

I went to this page called "the firmware page" link- (http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_all.php) and searched for my Disk Drive but had no luck in finding it. Even if I were to find it, how would I go about updating it, and how can I tell if its up to date?

Im running win XP and it is a Toshiba Qosimo laptop e15-av101
I looked in my computer/cd drive/ properties to see the name of my drive and hopfully I have the right one, it is a

MATSHITA dvd-ram UJ-830s.

I don't know much about firmware updates as I never had to do it but my DRW-2014L1Tburners are giving me some coasters in vista x64. Not 1 coaster under Nero 6 in xp pro.

I got the driver update listing in the sticky, went to the asus site to check on a firmware update for my burner's for x64 vista and there are 3 hopefully that will eliminate the coasters.

My question is: If I get the updates for the 64-bit vista will that interfere with those drives when I use xp pro ?

thanks,

PS: I use swappable drives; switching between vista x64 and xp pro.

I have Aspire E 14. Last night, I saw I have 1 critical update for firmware v1.17. When I clicked the update button it just says "updating" It just goes on and is not stopping. I closed the portal and a window appears saying reflashing. I saw it did reflash up to 100%, but why won't the critical update notification disappear on Acer Care Center portal? I also checked update history and the firmware is not yet included. I tried it again the next morning, clicked the update button, but still, it just says updating and can go on until you close the portal.  Any solution? Did my Aspire really did reflash? It seemed nothing has changed. Thanks in advance!

Hello, I have recently purchased an "Onyx Portable Media Player" by "Mach Speed Technologies". I installed the included drivers and software and am currently upgrading the firmware. The update window says "SigmaTel MSCN Firmware", so I'm assuming it's licensed by SigmaTel. It's updating from version 000.000.000 to 880.282.433. The window's progress bar seems to be stuck at "Initializing", with no advances made in the main progress bar but the smaller one constantly filling and then refilling. Is this just going to take a long time or is there something wrong?

I can provide a screenshot if needed.

Laptop is a Dell Vostro 1000 with XP Home SP3. Just installed a Crucial SSD. Works great. Tried to install a firmware update; not so great. Following the instructions from the Crucial site, I downloaded the update (it's an ISO file) and burned it to a CD. In the BIOS, changed boot order to CD drive first. Restarted the laptop. No joy - Windows still boots to the desktop. What could be wrong? I know almost nothing about using ISO files. TIA.
 

A:SSD Firmware Update

CD-image ISO files have to be written to CD in a special way, if you just copied the ISO file to a CD like a normal file, that won't work. There's a free app for creating a CD from an ISO file, it's called IMGBurn: http://www.filehippo.com/download_imgburn/

HP-Update FIRMWARE update problem?
I got some critical update for my Seagate 320 gb hard drive?s firmware. I went to download an process the update, later it asked me to insert a blank disk. Well I don?t have a blank disk but I hit bootable cd anyway thinking it would create some file on the hard drive. Well obviously that?s not what it had in mind because my disk drive opened, I shut the disk drive and it started saying writing data to disk. HOW could it do that with no disk. I couldn?t close it. It then said installation succesfull. What the heck. I restarted my computer to see if I had screwed up my system and it seams to be running fine. Have I screwed up my hard drive? Did the dang update install? Can I delete these firmware updte files lying around on my desktop? Please help me????

It is ok.

I dont know what happened, but You HAVE to burn the bootable disk, and then boot into it after a restart in order to update the firmware.

Hi All: Just purchased a LG GSA-4167B using a USB 2.0 connection via an USB 2.0 External Enclosure. The firmware version that came with the drive is version DL10. There are later firmware versions available, DL11, DL12 and DL13. I would like to update to the latest version, DL13. Can I do it by downloading the DL13 zip file and just unzipping it or will I have a problem because it is using a USB external connection. There are no instructions on the LG download site for a USB connected firmware update. Any insight would be most appreciated.
Thanks,
Patrick

Ye hi i have downloaded from Zyxels home page the latest Firmware and now my question is how do i update it? Because when i open the containing folder i have three files bin, pdf and rom. In the pdf theres just some information about what is new in the update and so on, but how do i open the two other files, i mean they are too small to be burned on a disk!!

You perform the firmware update from within the router's web user interface. Log into the router and there should be a option under one of the menus to upload new firmware to the unit.

Can't seem to find an answer to my question - Does the firmware update mean I have to reinstall windows? I have done firmware updates on other devices in the past, but not on a "boot" device, so just need an answer.

Edit: According to samsung it does not wipe HD, but just wanted people who have done an "inplace upgrade" to answer.

Edit: It worked fine through magician.

You can update the firmware before or after, I would suggest it would be better doing it before

The device is briefly detected and then disappears.

The problem is, this drive doesen't burn DVD+r DL without failures.
I made quite much attempts with 10 DL DVDs und five different burning suites, without success.
So I guess to fix this failure with a firmware update.

Can somebody tell me where I can get this update?

Why should this issue related to the firmware?

In my opinion you should try removing the upper and lower filters in registry. Just follow this article:

And firmware updates you can get from the Toshiba website.

A:DVD R/RW Drive Firmware update help

First of all a firmaware update is not a "driver". all optical drives use the windows native drivers and only MS updates that. I have never seen a firmware update as you describe open a command prompt window. if Pioneer actually uses this method then you will probably have to set the command prompt to the location of your drive. ie; type the locaion ( drive letter of the drive you are updating) if your pioneer is the D drive then you would type D:\ and then press enter

Anybody have any ideas on what to do??

A:Firmware update gone wrong

Newer BIOS chips have what is called a boot block sector. When flashing the BIOS this part is not flashed. Basically all it does is run the floppy drive, and if you are lucky you will also get basic video. I have re-flashed a "dead" BIOS with this. The MB was manufactured in 1998. The first attempt at flashing failed-nothing but beeps on restart. I downloaded the correct Bios update, made a new floppy to flash the BIOS and reran the flash program. There was nothing on the monitor, just a black screen, but I could hear the floppy drive being accessed. Follow the flash utility instructions and let it do its' thing. It took several long minutes, but it worked.

I'm providing this link below. Do not hold me or vistax64 responsible.
Wim's BIOS Page: BIOS Upgrades, Motherboard identification and more...

Finally, you can approach your manufacturer of your PC or bios to purchase a replacement.
