Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 Bricked Due To Upgrading Firmware

Jan 3, 2012

I have a little problem with my new E1200. Before the E1200 I had a WRT160N that was bricked to death by a power surge due upgrading the firmware. Till that moment the WRT160N met al the required specs as told in the description..I have from my ISP a 40Mbit cable line and was always downloading at those speeds wired aswell as wireless...
Now with the E1200 I get the 40Mbit only wired... wireless it only allows it up to max. 20Mbit.I figured that I didn't do anything different than the Linksys I had before..I'm working with a MacBook from late 2007 running OSX Lion 10.7.2, Built-in AirPort Extreme card (802.11a/b/g/n)My wireless setting with a WP2 Personal Security Mode

Linksys Wireless Router :: Bricked EA4500 After Push Firmware Update?

Jun 27, 2012

just to relieve a little those who complain for the loss of functionalities/control caused by the new firmware, I want to let you know that yesterday evening when I came back home the router was bricked. After more than 2 hours of tests with the online support, they ended up the device has to be replaced.To add insult to injury, I ALSO HAVE TO PAY to ship my router to Cisco warehouse. I couldn't believe my eyes... It's not for the 10 bucks it costs the shipment (even if 10 bucks are much better in my wallet than in Cisco's), but I already spent around 300 bucks less than 2 months ago to buy the two devices and now I have to pay to fix something I have not broken.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT350N Bricked / Lost After Firmware Upgrade?

Jan 4, 2012

I tried to upgrade the firmware of my WRT350N but while upgrading  my wife switched on the oven and.... yes, power down -> the upgrade has been interrupted. Now the router is no longer responding, it  shows just the green power light on (not blinking). I tried all the resets I found googling (pressing the reset button for 30 sec, isconnecting power and reconnecting it again) but no way, there's no way to ping the router at its default address All the leds are switched off (internet, usb, wireless, security) except the green power light.  Is there another way to have it back or it is definitely lost?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Updating Firmware For E1200?

Feb 28, 2013

When I bought my E1200 router my primary (in fact only) computer was a Windows laptop.  Since that time I bought a MacBook Pro and have been using that as my primary computer.  The Mac is running on the latest OS (Mountain Lion).

I would like to install the latest software to maintain the router on my Mac but I was told several months ago that there was no update available for Mountain Lion.  If that has changed, and if so then where can I download the appropriate software?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 Firmware Upgrade Fails?

Apr 13, 2012

I am trying to upgrade the firmware on my Linksys v1 router from 1.0.02 to 1.0.03 over a remote 56Kb circuit. I appear to be having a timeout problem.  The upgrade always fails.  I have upgraded several E1200s in my office over ethernet, and the upgrade appears to finish when the progress bar is at 15%.  However, on my remote upgrade, the progress bar gets to 98%, hangs for a few more seconds, and then pops up a window with "Upgrade failed".
I suspect that there is a timeout on the upgrade process, and that I can't upload the 3.8 MB firmware file fast enough.  If so, is there any way to increase the upgrade timeout?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Restoring Factory Defaults / Upgrading To Latest Firmware

Sep 16, 2010

I just upgraded to a E3000 from a WRT54G and I am having some issues with network speed.I have no special settings and have even tried restoring factory defaults and upgrading to the latest firmware to no avail.The time I notice the biggest hit is when transferring files locally on the network (WiFi and LAN).Let me note that I do know the difference between MB/s & Mb/s and the like.I have Comcast 20Mb/s Down, 1.5Mb/s Up (just a FYI, the main issue is local transfers)
With default settings my Laptop (ASUS N82JQ, Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter), connects to the router at only 65Mb/s (with full signal).Upload seems to be more decent ~600KB/s (Transferring files from wireless n laptop to the gigabit desktop).Download seems to be limited to ~150KB/s (Copying files from the wired gigabit desktop to the wireless n laptop).These speeds are horrible! ~5hrs to transfer 3GB of data!
One of my laptops had a card that was capable of both 2.4 & 5Ghz and I was previously getting ~2000-5000KB/s (2-5MB/s) transfers with this router (But I had to do a system restore on it and reset the router). My ASUS laptop seems to only work with 2.4Ghz though. If I change the 2.4Gh Wireless settings on the router to "Auto(20MHz or 40MHz)" the laptop will connect at 150Mb/s, but the speeds are the same slow speeds as above.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Upgraded To 2.07NA Firmware And It Bricked Router

Jun 21, 2012

I am today playing with the settings in my DIR-655 NA B1 router when I notice that a firmware upgrade is available.I clicked the button and the router automatically downloaded the file named DIR655B1_FW207NAB09.bin. I flashed it and was saying that it needed to wait 180 seconds (3 minutes) to reprogram the router after which it came up with a 404 not found on the screen. I am not able to access my router, it is bricked and I can't even re-flash the firmware comes back with Incorrect hardware ID image, Please check. I notice that the 2.07NA firmware file on the website is named DIR655B1_FW207NAB05.bin. What gives this is the first time a firmware upgrade has bricked anything I own?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Firmware Up To Date But E1200 Occasionally Disconnects

Apr 29, 2013

I bought a new E1200 this fall when I got a new Internet provider who recommended it to replace my really old one. It worked fine until a month or so ago when it would occasionally disconnect. At first I thought it was my Internet company but I started using the Cisco Connect app to fix it after restarting the router. The first time it worked great for about 2 weeks, but a few days ago it started disconnecting several times a day. Now it doesn't last 10 minutes before it quits. It tells me the firmware is up to date

Linksys Wireless Router :: Low Transmission Rate In E1200 Firmware V2.0.04 (Build 1)?

Nov 1, 2012

the only way i can get 300mbps from this router is by having these settings, it seems the only valid settings to get  300mbps from the router are the following:
Network Mode: mixed
Channel Width: auto (20mhz or 40mhz)
Channel : 1
if i leave the channel to auto it won't show up as 300.on top of that it doesn't want to stay at 300mbps for very long, sometimes its max rate in inSSDer is only 144 or 156mbps. its the weirdest thing, i think this version of the firmware seems to forget to check for how fast its wireless transmit speed is.When it reboots it only transmits at 144 or 156mbps. i have to go in the basic wireless page and just save the settings to reset it to 300, i don't even have to change anything, it resets its max rated speed back up to 300mbps.and more importantly, are the devs aware of this problem for the e1200 v2 ?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 - Speed Varies At Different Place After Firmware Update

Jan 25, 2013

I have a year old E1200 router. I just updated the firmware today, made adjustments to the MTU range to suit cable service and selected a different channel (9) as the neighbors were mostly on channels 2 and 6.My question is really in regard to the speed results of the router.  In the immediate room where the router is located I am getting 17.6 Mbs download speed/ 3.53 upload speeds but if I move to my living room - less than 20 feet away and a few walls - the upload speed drops sharply to 3.21 Mbs download/3.21Mbs uploas.I have read where the router placement can be key.  My router is  sitting on the desktop.  If I elevate the router will it improve performance 20 feet away or should I invest in upgraded router like a E3200 or look into a plug in type repeater?

Should I power down the router and then reset it?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200v2 Bricked After 1 Month Of Use?

I purchased an e4200v2 to replace my old WRT160n which I have been using for years with no issues. Last night the e4200 crashed on me when I went to reset the router I noticed the CISCO light was blinking very slowly and I had no network connection. I power cycled the router and still no connection so I hit factory reset button. Nothing happened. Did a 30/30/30 reset nothing happened. At this point I have a 34 day old plastic brick on my desk and I'm back to using my old WRT160N. how to unbrick this router?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Bricked 3 Times In A Row?

May 20, 2010

I originally began with a WRT610N(basically the old version of the new E3000).  I had been using it for a couple months, when all of a sudden I was stuck with the power light flashing, meaning the firmware was corrupted.  I contacted support & they guided me through the process of trying to restore the firmware through using the tftp.exe program with no luck.  Unfortunately at the time this happened, the E3000 was just being released, so they stated it could be close to a month to get a replacement WRT610N!  So I decided to just go grab an E3000 from BestBuy, as I had some unused giftcards for there.  I bought the E3000 & used it for literally 2 weeks, then the exact same problem!  Power light flashing, firmware corrupted.  Again I tried to restore the firmware with no luck.  I should mention, each time I tried pinging the router after setting a static IP it resulted in a 100% packet loss, meaning the router was not even communicating with my PC.  So with it being within the 30 day period, I just went & swapped it for a new one.  Went and swapped for another, so I am now on my 3rd E3000 in less than a month! What could be causing this?  I notice the router does get fairly hot, but i have it in a well ventilated area, so not sure what more I can do about that.This is supposed to be the highest end LinkSys router out there & I continue to have major issues with each of them.  Now I do pull a lot of data through it.  I have a NAS, 3 PC's, PlayStation3, Xbox 360, Wii, iPad, multiple notebooks, etc. on a 18Mbps Comcast cable connection.  But shouldn't this thing handle high amounts of data?  I mean it's the highest end router LinkSys makes, so what do I need to do?  Buy a true Cisco router for $1,000 for home use?

Linksys Wireless Router :: How To Re-flash A Bricked WRT310N

Oct 27, 2010

I accidentally flashed my WRT310N version 1.0 with version 2.0 firmware. After which the router was dead as a doornail.After a frustrating 3 hours of reading forums, following over 11 tutorials, and being 1 second away from throwing my WRT310N at the wall, I finally fixed it.I performed this fix on a Windows 7 32-bit PC. My provider is Comcast.Make sure you only have one ethernet cable connected from your PC to the router. The cable should be connected to any one of the 4 blue ports. I connected mine to port 1. DO NOT CONNECT IT TO THE YELLOW INTERNET PORT on the router.
With the router in your hand, hold down the reset button for 30 seconds until the port 1 light goes out then immediately disconnect the power while still holding down the reset button. DO NOT LET GO OF THE RESET BUTTON!WAIT 30 more seconds with the power disconnected. (Do not let go of the reset button)PLUG the power back in and WAIT another 30 seconds. After that, let go of the reset button. You should have held the reset button for a total of 90 seconds. This will wipe the router's nvram.Bring up the command prompt window that you prepared earlier. You should still see the ping command that you entered in Step 2. Now, hit ENTER to start pinging the router continuously. You will probably see a bunch of "request timed out" responses.Bring up the TFT2.exe window that you prepared in step 2. Press UPGRADE so it can begin communicating with the router. Make sure you set at least 10 retries.
As quickly as possible, go back to your router and HOLD the reset button and disconnect the power. You don't need to wait 30 seconds...5 seconds is enough. While stil holding the reset button down, plug the power back into the router and keep an eye on the command prompt and TFT2.exe windows.If the command prompt has successfully pinged the router, TFT2.exe will begin to flash it and very soon it will show a success message below the progress bar. If you still can't successfully ping the router, close and restart TFT2.exe using the same settings and try disconnecting/reconnecting the router's power again as mentioned in the paragraph above. You may want to try holding  the reset button down longer than 5 seconds. I was able to get this to work on the FIRST TRY.Now that your router is has the proper firmware, go back to your adapter's settings (mentioned in step 4), delete the static IP and set it back to the default automatic settings.Plug your cables back in and don't forget to plug the ethernet cable from your modem to the yellow internet port on your WRT310N."Recycle" the power to your cable modem by holding down the reset for 60 seconds or disconnect it from the power outlet for 60 seconds.Reset your router by holding the reset button for 30 seconds.

D-Link DIR-825 :: Firmware Upgrade Does Not Work / Bricked

Nov 3, 2010

I wanted to upgrade to the latest firmware (2.03NA). Something went wrong and now the router comes up with the orange light flashing. So the system is in emergency firmware upgrade mode. I set my IP to and connect to the web interface at I see a page with "Firmware Upgrade System" and "Version". So far so good. I can now select the firmware and click "send". But then nothing really happens. I can wait for a couple of minutes and then run into a timeout. I tried different browsers (Linux: Firefox, Chrome, etc). I even tried it Windows 7 with IE 8 and I get the same result. It seems that the cgi ( is not really doing anything?

D-Link DIR-601 :: Upgrading Firmware From 1.0 To 1.02 Will It Default Factory Settings?

Aug 6, 2011

I currently have this router in use with verizon dsl (PPPoe) setup.I have this set to "always on". Since the verizon modem, which is also router has been set into bridge mode and the d-link came into play its been extremely slow, and dropping connection. The router is in a separate IP class, and has no conflict with the modem. My question is, if I upgrade this firmware from 1.0 to 1.02 will it default to factory settings? I know it says only some will. I do have the backup config file, but i would be doing this remotely, and would not be able to get to this router if it goes down. Has anyone gone from 1.0 to 1.2 and saw a difference and speed, and are you able to do this without losing settings.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750X Upgrading The Firmware

Apr 2, 2012

I had a strange problem here after upgrading Cisco 3750X.The upgrading was going smoothly, I copied a newer IOS to the flash from another Cisco 3750X through TFTP, changed the boot image.It took a while do to the microcode upgrading, finally, it started to boot up. But when it completes the boot up, I can't see the normal login prompt, but only some strange codes. From what I can see, it seems some decoding problem, as if I plug or unplug a cable from the switch, the strange code pops up again, like in normal situation, the console tells you that the interface is going up and down.

The original image of the switch: c3750e-universalk9-mz.122-53.SE2.bin
Upgrade to image: c3750e-universalk9-mz.122-55.SE3.bin

However, I don't have any problem to telnet to this switch, as it has correct IP address and login configured before the upgrading. I have reboot the switch for couple of times, reconnect to the serial port still doesn't show me anything.I am wonering has any one has met this situation before? detailed message shown after the boot up. cisco WS-C3750X-48 (PowerPC405) processor (revision A0) with 262144K bytes of memory.

Processor board ID FDO1449Z04L
Last reset from power-on
