Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL

Q: Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL

This is a follow up in a way I had asked about the N-routers and how to get good reception in a large house Based on the responses and reviews of this router Linksys WRT GL I chose this one router to do the trick with the option of installing another one upstairs to increase coverage if needed The price of of these was cheaper than one N router or a router and repeater The Lisksys software is pretty lame I was able to get my computer hooked up fairly easily but my roommate could not get online which is more important as update WRT54GL for Linksys Firmware I am on the road all the time and he is stuck at home I Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL reset the router before I left so hopefully he can get himself hooked up before I get home in days The coverage seems great I get very good or excellent in all corners of the house I see things about installing a second party firmware to improve it further Any suggestions about which firmware and details about how to update and use this firmware Thanks nbsp

Preferred Solution: Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL

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.)

A: Firmware update for Linksys WRT54GL

You need to find out why your roomate can not connect. Is it becasue of bad coverage? But, you said the coverage is great. If it is a secure network and your roomate is using the correct password/key, and if the coverage is great, then some setting issue must be dealt with in the roomate's computer.

Why do you need third party firmware for your router? That may not solve your roomate's problem, becasue as I said, it could be in roomate's computer. I have heard using third party firmware on Linksys gives much more features. One of them is to increase the power out of the router. But, again, all those feature may not help you with the problme that your have.

First do this on your computer, then on roomate's:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I just bought a new Modem (Netgear CM500) to use with a Linksys WRT54G Router... using Win 7 on Desktop and Win 8 on HP Laptop.
When connecting the Modem to the Desktop all is well with Internet. When I remove the cable from the DeskTop to go into the Router (along with adding the cable from the Modem to the router). initially I had the set up working. I unplugged the cable to move the component and now I can not get the router to work and I can only use the Internet when the Router is out of the connection.
I lose internet connection on Desktop and Laptop when trying to use the router. I have removed power from both modem and router in many different ways and rebooted both systems. I cannot access 192.168.1.1 and I have reset the Router. I'm out of ideas.

Please help

Can't you just go into Synapse and assign the Windows key to the Alt key and vice versa? All the keys are programmable and hopefully this wouldn't affect your other keyboard.

A while ago, after accidentally opening the Store app, Windows forced me to restart to install Windows 8.1, which I was unable to weeks before because of driver issues. I didn't need Windows 8.1 yet, so I didn't download it before then.

However, during the installation, it failed (again) due to either my antivirus or the aforementioned driver issues. Upon logging back in, my computer was unable to find any WiFi networks. Seeing as I live in the middle of a densely populated city, this isn't possible. Plugging in an ethernet cord still works, so no issues with that adapter or my home internet. I checked all the drivers for my WiFi adapter, and my Ethernet adapter, and both are up to date and display as working properly. Restarting several times didn't seem to fix this issue, and using system restore didn't seem to work either. I used the Troubleshooting tool, and that didn't give my any helpful advice or answers, so I got nothing.

What can I do to fix this issue?

For reference, I have a Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter, Driver Version 6.30.95.14, and a Qualcomm Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller, Driver Version 2.1.0.7.

CPU:AMD FX-8320
Motherboard:ASUS M5A97 R2.0
OS:Windows 8.1 64-bit

I hardly know anything about the BIOS so I am asking you this:
Will I need to update my BIOS and if so how to do that?
Am I going to update it to the latest version(2103) or the version when the processor was first compatible(1006)?

Please help, I do not want to make a mistake when updating so please provide a detailed explanation ! ! !
 

A:BIOS update

Some might say updating the BIOS is not worth the risk unless you have a reason to chance it. On the other hand I've never had a BIOS update go badly. BIOS updates are not that difficult to do. But there is always a risk of the update failing. In the off chance of failure, the motherboard will be bricked. There are motherboards that come with a second BIOS for failsafe. I don't know if the failsafe can be used under a bricked board, I will assume it can until I hear otherwise.

There are three ways to update that I am aware of. All of which may not be available depending on motherboard model and age of system.

Within the Operating System (I've used this method but for awhile it was advised against)
You will need to download BIOS Update application. The application will download and install the new BIOS.

Within the BIOS
Within the BIOS there is an update facility. You will only need the new BIOS. (My BIOS will only update from a USB stick.)

From DOS utility
Not only will you need to download the new BIOS, you will need to download the flash utility that is designed for the update.

I recommend updating from within the BIOS (assuming you have this option). Download the new BIOS to a USB stick and then boot into the BIOS. Browse around to find the update facility and the rest is self explanatory.

Does not recognize the card as being from Silicon Image. Looking at the card, I saw that the chipset BIOS supports. AM29LV010B-90EC. Does anyone know if there is a possibility of that?

Do you have to update or change the Motherboard to update the processor?

A:Motherboard/Processor update

Your CPU socket is PPGA478, P4 is the highest CPU this socket will support.

Even with LGA775 CPU socket, unless you had a motherboard that would support quad core, there would be little reason to upgrade over a complete system replacement.

In answer to your question to "Plug and Play", yes and no. Yes CPU's are basically plug and play, and No the motherboard must support the CPU first.

Hey guys, I've attempted a bios update through this website and I've been left with this sitting on my desktop for two days and the loading bar has not moved an inch.
I tried to update the BIOS because for the last few weeks when my computer is booting the screen would go blank and just stay blank and I would have to keep resetting until it would finally boot. I was hoping a bios update would do the trick otherwise I would not have bothered.

Im worried if I exit out or shut-down my computer I could corrupt my BIOS. Any ideas?..


 

A:Bios update help

I would exit and maybe try again. Thats the download phase which has nothing to do with the actual update process. The download will complete, before any attempts to update will begin. Updating the BIOS can be very risky, updating would never be handicapped by possible problems of downloading.

Hello! I'm new here at Tech Spot. This is a great website.

Onboard Sound: Azalia (swa)
Onboard LAN: Exist (wl)

BIOS Type: AMI

I downloaded all BIOS .ROM files in the official website of Asus. But it weren't compatible with the BIOS to be flashed.

Please help me! Thank you very much in advanced!
 

A:Motherboard BIOS update

The latest BIOS for your board is version 1015. It's not necessary to load each BIOS in order, just load the latest. To load the BIOS you must copy it to a floppy disc and rename it P5GD1-VM.ROM If you didn't rename it, that's why it won't load. On the same Asus download page, you can get the user manual for your board, which goes into detail how to reflash the BIOS. It can render your motherboard un-bootable if you do it wrong, so I would read the manual before attempting it again, and follow instructions carefully.

A:Graphics card update help needed

Yes that video card will work with your motherboard.

However, it may not be the best value for money compared to the current gen video cards on offer.

For example, the newer Nvidia GTX 660 is the same price as the 560 Ti and offers around 30% more performance. Alternatively, the AMD Radeon HD 7850 costs even less and still offers better performance than the 560 Ti. I would highly recommend you go with one of these (doesn't have to be that exact model of 660 or 7850).

Hello techspot, Basically I think ineed to update my BIOS in order to run call of duty black ops 2, but I Don't know.

Basically when I try to run the game, my pc freeze's then shuts down and says no signal detected, I've been looking all over the inet to try find a solution and came across a forum where people were having the same problem. (They're all using AMD) Alot of the people there said they contacted there motherboard supplier's and asked for a flash drive update or something? to update their BIOS. After doing this they said the game started to work.
Please help.

my motherboard is a N68-VS3 FX, If someone could link me to the correct update for it that would be grand. im on windows 7 if that helps

There was a problem with my Intel Centrino N 1030 wireless driver, and have not been able to correct the problem. Also, when I try to restart it takes forever, and I get a notification when it finally does that there was a critical blue-screen error?

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place but I need some help with my wireless USB adapter. I have used this adapter on two separate computers (including this one) under the same router and it's worked fine but I just bought my friends old computer off him and I can't get it to connect. I have the software and it installs everything just fine, it sees the connection, has near full signal but when I go to connect, it just won't... Or rather, it says it's connected but with no internet access. When I click troubleshoot it says it can't find any issues. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Edit: Forgot to mention, it's a linksys Cisco USB adapter.

Hi all I Acer update 8935g driver screen GPU blank after recently updated the driver for the Ati card in my laptop during the installation the screen had gone blank and has stayed that way ever since But first heres a back story I started having trouble with the laptop a few months ago when I assume the ati card had overheated and caused the screen to flicker this laptop comes with an Intel card also which you can switch to by pressing the power save button near the keyboard The intel card ran just fine and if I output the video through hdmi the ati card would work fine also Acer 8935g screen blank after GPU driver update which led me to Acer 8935g screen blank after GPU driver update believe that there maybe an issue with the screen Also if I kept pressing the power save button and switching between cards the ati card would eventually begin to work normally on the laptops screen I wanted to update my drivers today as they were a couple of years old I had trouble installing them in the past as there was a conflict between both gpu cards so I became frustrated and left it I used Ati s auto detect tool and it began to install the new drivers when the screen went blank I thought this was normal during a driver update but I left the laptop running and it stayed that way for over an hour So I turned the laptop off using the main power button Probably wasnt a good idea I imagine Now the screen just stays blank even if I try to switch to the intel card Any help on this issue will be much appreciated nbsp

hi, I need to configure my nat settings on my router so me and my bro can play starcraft broodwar together under the same ip.. is there a way to do it that is supported by sc 1.16.1 as of today?

-starcraft broodwar servers currently do not support this and ive heard that there is a very
complicated work around..?-
 

A:How to configure NAT on Linksys e1000?

What router do you currently have?!? Unless you have a high end router: cisco, juniper networks, brocade, etc. NAT should be enabled & running by default. NAT, or Network Address Translation; simply put - "is the process of modifying IP address information in IP packet headers while in transit across a traffic routing device" [see link here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_address_translation ] As long as you have a router in place, NAT occurs automatically.

If you and your brother are on the same network, connected to the same router, there is no reason you shouldn't be able to play SC1 - I have LAN parties where we play with 4-8 of us, all behind the same router.

Now, if you are looking to play SC1 and you and your bother are NOT connected to the same router, or are NOT in the same physical location geographically... My friends and I play "over the internet, WAN games" via a virtual VPN program called hamachi [see link: https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi/download.aspx ] This allows friends of mine in multiple states, or continents to play as if we were on the same physical network. Depending on your router, you might have to forward a couple of ports to your PC on your local LAN. [see link: hamachi ports: http://help.logmein.com/SelfServiceKnowledgeRenderer?type=FAQ&id=kA030000000DGD6CAO how to port forward: http://portforward.com/ ]

I hope this helps, take care!

Hello,

I'm trying to update the drivers on my Radeon x600 256MB graphics card with Windows XP 32 bit.

I downloaded the following file described as the ATI Catalyst Driver 10.2 (XP): download-euro <dot> oldapps <dot> com/ATI/10-2_xp32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu.exe

On running this download, it has installed Catalyst Install Manager in C:\Program Files\ATI\CIM\Bin, but I have no idea what I need to do next!

Running Install Manager and following the steps through seems to do something, though looking at device manager, it doesn't look as though the driver has been updated (it's still version 8.162.0.0)...

Thanks in advance

i am unable to reset my router back to default username/password setting.ive been able to reset it in the past, but i cant remember what i did.

i have held the reset button down for 90 secs. then i unplugged the router while still holding down the reset button for an additional 90 secs. and finally plugged the power back in again still holding the reset button for an additional 90 secs.

ive tried switching between different web browser. default gateway is 198.162.1.1

tried using cmd prompt. used ipconfig /release. ipconfig /renew. just for the heck of it.

ive also read that this same model and version is giving alot of people trouble as far as resetting it goes.

honestly, im not sure what firmware i have installed. im not sure how to check it... if that may be the issue.

while trying to login to router via firefox, i get the security level 15 message

A:Unable to reset linksys BEFW11S4 ver 4 router

Sounds like your router needs a hard reset, the following has helped me in some cases, but be aware, if these procedures don't work, than your router has gone bye bye, it's junk.

To reset your router to factory defaults, use the following procedure:

1) Power down all computers, the router, and the modem, and unplug them from the wall.
2) Disconnect all wires from the router.
3) Power up the router and allow it to fully boot (1-2 minutes).
4) Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds, then release it, then let the router reset and reboot (2-3 minutes).
5) Power down the router.
6) Connect one computer by wire to port 1 on the router (NOT to the internet port).
7) Power up the router and allow it to fully boot (1-2 minutes).
8) Power up the computer (if the computer has a wireless card, make sure it is off).
9) Try to ping the router. To do this, click the "Start" button > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. A black DOS box will appear. Enter the following: "ping 192.168.1.1" (no quotes), and hit the Enter key. You will see 3 or 4 lines that start either with "Reply from ... " or "Request timed out." If you see "Reply from ...", your computer has found your router.
10) Open your browser and point it to 192.168.1.1. This will take you to your router's login page. Leave the user name blank, and in the password field, enter "admin" (with no quotes). This will take you to your router setup page. Note the version number of your firmware (usually listed near upper right corner of screen). Exit your browser.

If you get this far without problems, try the setup disk (or setup the router manually, if you prefer), and see if you can get your router setup and working.

If you cannot get "Reply from ..." in step 9 above, your router is dead.

If there's some time left on any type or warrenty for this device, I would recommend using it, that is if in fact your router is dead.

Good luck.............hope this helps!

Although installing a custom firmware to your wireless router opens the door to a number of possibilities it s understandable if you feel comfortable just plugging in and using the router standard setup if that s working Trick Linksys routers restarting for OK for you Linksys routers are known for its reliability and spartan setup Glaringly missing from their standard set of options is a way to restart the device remotely something that might become a necessity if you are troubleshooting your network While the tried and true method of disconnecting the device for seconds and plugging it back will still work it s easier when you can accomplish that remotely As you are likely aware your router lives in the following Trick for restarting Linksys routers IP address unless you changed it to something else http There s a hidden file that will let you restart reboot your router effortlessly http Reset htm In case that doesn t work for your specific model there s an alternative Go to your router s control panel Then on the main menu select Administration gt Config Management shortcut http bkconfig htm From this screen backup your current router configuration to a file Subsequently restore the configuration you just saved by browsing the file and restoring it effectively restarting your router It might take a couple of minutes to reboot in this way but should be a safe method nonetheless nbsp

hmm; as you express it, this is literally impossible.
There should only be one DHCP server on this lan. With the addresses you've provided, the server has only one connection to the router and thus it can literally read/write to one device at a time.

Code:

==== router#1
(128.1)
|
+ (128.08) Server
|
+ (128.100) router ===
I fear you are attempting to connect each router to an ISP and get twice the bandwidth;
usually it is wired like this

Code:

===router#1 ------ server ---- router#2 ===
the server would need two NIC cards, but this never works due to the routing tables.

I am very very frustrated since I waited a while to get this motherboard from china. My last DFI board randomly died on me and I ordered this as a replacement because I wanted a decent 775 board. I worked on it all night tonight and despite it reading all the hardware... it will not boot unless I reset the cmos every time. On top of that... I can not get the bios to update... it doesn't read any of the 5 usb drives I tried (fat/fat32). Also I tend to get this grey screen when trying to flash it sometimes. I am beside myself at this point after fussing with it for hours on end and I really need some help.

Also, what is your budget and how do you use the PC?

A:Recommend BIOS update?

I would agree with your final comment, "if it ain't broke don't fix it". But, on the other hand if Dell are pushing this recommendation then it may have some benefits, just make certain it is coming from Dell and not some bogus site. Go to the official Dell support site and look up your PC's drivers, it will show you in there what the latest version the Bios is, just check it against what you have. Go into Bios at boot and it will be written at the top of the screen.

You didn't read the support list properly. The Core 2 Quad or Core 2 Duo processors are not supported. See here: http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?pid=1937 The N/A in the "Since BIOS Version" column means not supported. See the red note in the upper left of the page?

Hey, so I currently have a Linksys E1000 wireless N router, and am connecting wirelessly with a Netgear WG111V2, my connection says its full speed but lags out alot, and i was wondering if it's possible to connect my netgear wgt624 to my computer, and have it wirelessly connect to the Linksys router, almost like the netgear router was an adapter.

If this is not possible, any tips on maximixing the performance of the wg111v2 adapter? sadly connecting directly to the router is not possible, as it's in my parents room.

I purchased a new computer an Acer last August so it is about months old My computer runs Windows Vista I recently tried installing a program How update I sound do my card? and could not get it to run on my computer I sent my dxdiag file to the tech support and they told me that I most likely needed to update my sound card since it is from March I attempted through the windows update screen to find updates and I also have tried to update drivers through the quot find updated drivers quot that is on my computer and both of those options tell me that my drivers sound card are up to date However it is still possible that I can download something from the manufacturer website I have a Realtek soundcard but the only way to download updates is to know what model I have The way they reccommend to do that is to unscrew the computer and look on the soundcard itself The problem is that we have a very compact model and I would prefer not to go fishing around in such How do I update my sound card? a small space Is there a way to find the model of my sound card some other way When I clicked on information about my sound card it says RTKVHDA sys Any information you can provide would be helpful I actually doubt that updating my sound card will make the program work but I want to be able to tell tech support that I did it and it didn t work It isn t the sound of the program that s not working When I click on the program it opens but there is a dialog box with it that says quot Guitar Praise stopped working quot so nothing opens at all I would think if it were the sound card I would be able to have the program open but without sound Thanks Kendra nbsp

A:How do I update my sound card?

you shouldn't ever need to physically upgrade to a better sound card unless you're looking for better quality sound. having said that sound cards are not typically the cause of programs that refuse to install. not sure why they told you to get it replaced as it is probably built in to the motherboard. it sounds to me like the software may be incompatible with the drivers or direct x may need updating.

one quick way to determine your sound card is to download Piriform's Speccy, which will display all of the computer's hardware information. just click on "audio" and check the first section which will have a list of sound cards.

I was looking for some answers to a few questions before I buy the hardware to a bridge I want to setup.

The setup I want to use is 2 WRT54GL using DD-WRT firmware setup in bridge mode.

I am looking to bridge these routers from about <400 feet away.

My main question is, since the WRT54GL has 2 antennas, can one antenna be setup to receive and the other setup to transmit. If so, I should be able to replace one of the omni-directional(transmit) antenna with a directional antenna.

From anyone with bridging experience, will this setup work? Please note that these are simply bridged routers and don't need to serve any wireless
clients.

Thanks for any replies ahead of time.

I am now wanting to extend the broadband wireless network and I am thinking of using the Linksys WAP54G to extend the internet wirelessly.

Are these two compatible or can I change the router from netgear to a linksys one i.e. is orange broadband hardwired into the router or not?

A:Linksys router strange problem... never seen anything like it

It isn't clear to me if you are connected to the router by a cable. If you are trying to access the router's administrative console, I believe you need to be connected by a physical cable although I'm not a expert in this area.

Regarding the Rosewill RNX-G1LX USB adapter, I have the similar Rosewill RNX-G1 USB adapter (it has a removable SMA antenna) and it works just fine on one of my XP Home PCs. I also use an extension cable for positioning purposes.

Also some how I have managed to un-install my drivers and I have no idea how to re install them or anything
Im totally confused - any help will be appreciated.
 

A:ATi update problem

When you say you updated your drivers how did you try to actually do it?

Typically, you should go to the AMD/ATI website (link to AMD), download the appropriate graphics driver, uninstall the old graphics driver from Programs and Features (Vista, W7) or Add or Remove Programs (XP), restart and install the new driver.

You can try to start over by using System Restore and restore the system to a point before you tried to update the driver. Be aware that any updates or application installations you did since then will likely have to be done again.

A:Video driver update difficulty

If it were me I would use system restore (it works better from safe mode) to go back to before you installed the driver that messed you up.
Anytime you update your graphics drivers you should use a cleaner to remove any traces of the old one, otherwise you can have problems. I often use driver cleaner pro (the free version) from within windows immediately after uninstalling from the add/remove programs section (XP). Remove all drivers for the graphics but leave any chipset stuff for nvidia alone. Here's the order I uninstall (nview desktop manager then drivers then display control panel will give you an error cause the driver unistall allready got it) You can also uninstall the physx drivers if you have them and download a new version if you need it.

Then run "driver cleaner pro" (google it but download from a place you trust) and select the word "nvidia" only, thats the graphics drivers leave the chipset stuff alone. It will even remove the folder under your C drive where nVidia likes to extract its stuff. Then reboot and go into safe mode (for me its the F8 button repeatedly at boot) and in safe mode install the new drivers.

Failed to install a core driver means there was something still active on your machine and it couldn't replace it while it was running.

The best way to be sure you get drivers for your machine is to go to the nvida site and follow the support section entering your info as you go (usually a few windows putting the appropriate info in order, but its for cards only, not onboard video, if you have onboard video you have to go to the mobo manufacturers site). Start with your graphics (geforce) then the series (like 8) your card number (like a 8800gt) and finally your OS. there is also a button for letting them scan your machine and tell you what you need automatically. I don't do warcraft or any online gaming so I can't help you but perhaps installing the latest directx 9.0c (june redistibutable) might be a good idea too.

All your icons got big cause it reverted back to just a generic VGA driver when the install failed and your desktop looked like you were in safe mode where drivers do not get loaded but most can be installed.

After an hour online with Intel tech support, it was determined that a DH55HC motherboard was faulty and has to be RMA'd. Graphics with a i5-650 processor would not work, though the board worked fine with an X-16 card. As I used an OEM version of Win. 7-64, would it be possible for Intel to install firmware on the replacement board that would allow the operating system to see the new board as it would have the board that was replaced? The only component changed will be the motherboard, all drives including boot drive will remain unchanged.

Floppy drives with cables are less than $4.00 around these parts... maybe that is the best way to go for a six year old motherboard.

you want to be very careful flashing a BIOS if you have never done it before... That is a certain way to ruin a motherboard, unless you have a good manual or guidance... for first timers.

A:BIOS update went wrong, need help please

Unfortunately there is little you can do if the flashing has failed. If the motherboard does not POST, you are most-likely looking at a paperweight. There may be a bit of hope if your mainboard has a chip socket (meaning you can physically pull the BIOS chip) but most are soldered right to the PCB. If you can remove the BIOS chip, you can send it to BIOSMAN where they will replace it and reflash the corrupt chip. I've used them before, it's a very good service.

As far as soldered goes, I'm afraid that's tough luck. Replace the motherboard.

I just purchased the XFX 8600 GT that many have said fits and works in the Dell E521 (numerous help threads allover google).

The problem I'm having is that, despite uninstalling drivers and everything, I throw the 8600 into the computer and start the computer up.

This is where it gets hairy.

The cards fan spins fast 4 times, and then slows down to a normal speed. During this whole time, nothing is displayed on the computer (no bios/windows xp loading screen/nothing) and I can't tell if it is even detected.

I've tried all the dvi ports too, nothing.

There's question in which the 305 w power supply can handle it and many have said so.
Is the card faulty?

The card I take out it the 7300 LE. There's no onboard graphics either.
 

A:Dell E521 GFX card update

Either the graphics card is defective or the power supply can't handle it after all. It's not easy to say at this point. If it was me, I would try the new card in another system or try a better power supply in your current system. Of course, I don't know if you have access to alternatives but I don't know how you can be sure otherwise.

2) disable remote management on port 8080

3) change the router password (and document it!) save the settings (which will restart it)

4) you apparently have wifi conectivity for the systems, so you need only to
enable encryption and set the passphrase {use WPA2, or WPA, and avoid WEP if possible)

save the settings and disconnect the wired system

each system will need to connect the first time and you will need the passphrase to do so.

Just installed new mobo to replace old one that died. Swapping in one exactly the same but computer won't detect keyboard so I can't get into bios. This is the reason I decided to update BIOS. Followed the directions on Intel website for updating BIOS both with flash drive and cd. Neither worked. Version of BIOS is 431, tried to update to 444 then 478. MoBo is an INTEL D915GAG socket 775. When attempting to update comp just hangs cpu fan is on but the monitor light just blinks off and on. Tried to enter setup by putting jumper on pins 2 and 3 which is labeled 'config' then upon start-up message 'entering setup...' appears at bottom of screen but it just hangs there.
 

A:Comp hanging on BIOS update

You may have a motherboard that cannot be repaired, if you used the incorrect BIOS, or attempted to install it in an unacceptable way, it can render the board useless... the reason is that the system cannot run to go back and install an acceptable BIOS.
If this is the case, there is probably no fix available to you...
That is a fairly old motherboard, and lots of replacemetns and refurbs are available cheaply.. you should be able to find one for under $30 or $40..
Good luck. Let us know how it worked out for you.

HyperWRT was suggested to me and I was looking to see if anyone has used it and had any comments, suggestions or links for more information. We use router in condo complex and we thought this might boost the range. We get low signal that works for everything else, web uploading, skype, etc. , but is apparently too low to use magicjack. We get disconnected or knocked off after a few minutes talking on magicjack. I am thinking that the low signal is the problem and maybe this would help.
I have already updated the firmware and backed up settings on the Linksys. It seems a little risky although I do have another back up Linksys router.

Nothing urgent, but would appreciate anyone's ideas. thank you.

A:Linksys adapter for Windows 7 64-bit

I have never used the Linksys brand but I have used a couple of other brands of similar type USB wireless adapters. I've used one in a Windows 7 64 bit PC and a Windows XP Home 32 bit PC. In each case you are instructed to first install the driver and then plug in the USB adapter afterward. Did you follow this order? If not, uninstall the driver in Programs and Features and start over.

The wireless adaptor is B-mode (802.11b).
Unless it has other capabilities, it will only connect to a WiFi router which supports and is configured to support B-Mode. Many routers will support multiple modes;

What brand and model router are you using?

A:Need Help in Upgrading Firmware on an Access Point

My I be of some assistance here? Which model do you have. The have emulator I can see what your working with?

I would download the firmware to the PC you have connected to the AP but your going to use hardwired connection to that AP to upload the firmware to it.

Again which model do you have?

I flashed my DIR-825 to the new F/W 2.03NA.
Wireless is a little slower, but range is 15 feet further.
Could be due to local conditions.

Per GRC.com all ports are stealth, not just closed!!

Any one else using it?
If so, what are your experiences?

Thank you in advance for your input.

I have an old backup laptop that usually works fine.It needs more ram and more space but its ok. Are there updates that I could find for this model that would make a difference. My little acer isnt always the best choice. This one is bigger and more comfortable. I dont have to keep scrolling to see the whole screen. Its easier to play farmville with a bigger screen(did I say that out loud?)
 

A:Update your 2001 motherboard? Is it possible, or do I need to see the wizard?

I think you already mentioned two of the upgrades you can make: RAM and hard drive. Add to that a possibe processor. Beyond that there isn't much you can do with a laptop.

A:Can I link a Netgear and a Linksys router together?

What does your landlord said about doing that? You should have him cough-up the the extra Repeater (100% wireless device) no need to use a router in this situation) This way you and the wife and anyone else in that second of the building can access the internet if you're getting a weak spot in your apartment?

Networking and routers are an area I have almost zero knowledge My current router is a Linksys BEFSR four port wired I ve had it running for years and though there have been the occasional need to reset through rebooting it has been rock solid Since the day I set it up I have let it be As the old adage goes quot If it ain t broke don t fix it quot However I Firmware: Access Upgrade Should Point? I for Router would now like to add an Access Point in order to have wireless connection for our laptops rather than having to have said laptops connected by an ethernet cable There are a large Router Firmware: Should I Upgrade for Access Point? number of offerings of Access Points that allow this option by connecting to a wired router Since the firmware must be old I was wondering if the first step should be upgrading my router to the lastest firmware before adding the Access Point I certainly don t want to quot brick quot my router but I have certainly gotten my monies worth out of it if it does happen Thoughts Thanks nbsp

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.
