I've had my WRT54G for a year few now andhave the occasional problem, were I end up powering off the Modem and the WiFibox to get a connection.So having a week of I thought I should tryand update the firmware and see if this solves the problem.I have a WRT54G Ver 2.0 and am running Win7on my main machine with IE9.I Downloaded the firmware update(FW_WRT54G_4.21.4.000_20110712), and while the update was loading I got a errormessage about Update not taken, this was while the Progress bar was about 3/4through, I click OK and waited a while to see if the progress bar moved anymore, butafter 10 min nothing appear to have happen. So I powered the box offand on again.I appear to be able to see my other PC andmy NAS drive but the WiFi and the broadband connect was gone.I reconnected my PC to the Broadband andlooked for a connection, but none that I’ve found seam to work. I found a referenceto a TFTP utility, but all the links on your site appear to be dead, so I haven’tdownload it from anywhere else in case its different to your.
I'm attempting to upgrade to firmware 5.00.38 for my WRT54G-TM router, but it keeps telling me "upgrade failed" after like 3-4 seconds of trying. It says I currently have firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (06/13/09) mega - build 12288. I've tried restetting to factory defaults before upgrading
I tried to upgrade firmware (I entered my model number WRT54G and hardware version 2 into Cisco menu and downloded the upgrade file they provided. My version was v2.02.7, downloded file FW_WRT54Gv4_4.21.5.000_20120220.bin . After I run the upgrade it said upgrade failed. After that I can't connect to internet and can't access the router. I tried to reset it and unplug it- no luck. From my PC control panel I see local area connections status connected, but as I said, it does not connect to Internet.

I tried many times to connect my ps3 to the internet/playstation network so far no luck. The router I'm using is a linksys WRT54G v 2.00.8. I have no problem using my WII, PSP, or computer to go online but my ps3 cannot connect to the internet.url...The errors I might sometimes get is "failed to obtain IP adress" and most of the time I get something with unable to connect to internet server when I am able to get the IP address
I was thinking maybe I shold reset my router to default settings but I'm not sure what's the way to do that or update the router? This problem also has been happening for a week now. In the previous weeks I could easily connect to the internet with no problems and all of a sudden I cannot connect anymore and this has happened a few times already in the past where I am unable to connect to the internet with my ps3 for a few days to a week.
I just bought a Cisco E4200 (from someone on Ebay, so returning is probably not an option). I was in the process of setting it up when it wanted to do a Router Update. Unfortunately, it did not specifically say to not do it WIRELESS. We had a disconnection in the upgrade process. Now the Power light just blinks. I can ping it from a hard-wired PC, but cannot get to the Administration Web page to retry the firmware update (I did download it from the site). Also Cisco Connect cannot connect to the router.
Oh Yes, I have tried holding reset button for 30 seconds, unplugging for 30 seconds, and replugging in the router. I do not get any different results.
I have a WRT54G wireless router v7.2.00 (defoult firmware)in here last firmware is 8.2 [URL]i download this file, but can't install... then i find this...[URL] in here last version is v7.2 now can you tall me, can i upgrade v7.2.01 to v8 or v8.2?
My Linksys WRT54G router has been dropping out lately and I've been recommended to update its firmware as it is very out-of-date. Well, everytime I try to upgrade the firmware to it, I get an error message that says "the connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." I'm trying to upgrade the firmware through the router's site 192.168.1.1 under the adminstration tab
I have a wrt54g (8.1) that was acting a little funny so did some googling and followed the instructions to install new firmware. First the installation failed, double checked to make sure I downloaded the correct file (FW_WRT54G_8.1.09.02_US_20071227.bin), did a reset and power cycle. Checked the information again and everything on the router setup completely disappeared.
I have tried to upgrade the firmware to the latest greatest but keep getting the "Incorrect image file" error. I bought two of the V1 units and had no trouble with one of them but the other is frustrating me. I have reset it and even tried a tftp upgrade of the firmware but still get "Incorrect image file" even in tftp.
I ran the firmware upgrade and hit the reset button for 30 seconds and everything went well until I went to restore my personal settings. When I went to the router page it asked for a user name and password but the old user name and password don't work so I am locked out and can't get to the restore page.
I'm going to upgrade my WRT54G wireless router to an e2000 Linksys router. How does the e2000 compare to the WRT54G? I've had years of great services from my WRT54G router, but it has been acting flaky lately even with the latest firmware available. Just curious how the e2000 compares to the WRT series.
I'm currently trying to upgrade my linksys WRT54G v1.1 router using the WRT54G-EU_fw,0 file, however when I press upgrade it comes up with a message saying "Incorrect Image File!". The current firmware version is v1.42.2 Is there any way to fix this so I can upgrade it?
I have a problem with my WRT54G V8 router.I download a wrong Firmware and upgrade it.After this my router never work again.The PC can't get IP from the router.I tried a lot of time to access to the web admin 192.168.1.1 and other IP and nothing happen.I made a lot of reset cycles, with the procedures 30/30/30 or other with the reset button in combination with the power cord.
Exist any other possibility to recover my router.Can I open and touch other button inside the board or something like this?
-One WRT54G ver. 6, Firmware Version v1.028 -One WRT54G ver. 6, Firmware Version v2.x
With the WRT54G ver. 6, Firmware Version v1.028.When I ran the android app WiFi Analyzer, I get mixed results.On my Samsung Galaxy S3, I saw my signal on Channel 2, and others around me (two on Channel 6 and two on Channel 11).On my ASUS Transformer Prime TFT201 I see the same signals, but my router signal bounces continously between the baseline (-100dBm?) and about -35dBm.
Plugged in the WRT54G ver. 2, Firmware Version v2.x Channel 8.Hooked it up and got good steady signal strength. It Had 'WPA - Shared Key' but did not have the 'WPA - Personal' that was on the ver. 6. So, I had to go and screw things up. I've upgraded this to Firmware Version: v4.21.5 and guess what? I now have 'WPA - Personal'. I also have a signal is bouncing on BOTH units.
On my ASUS, I can see both routers. The ver. 2 AND the ver. 6 are bouncing between baseline and -35dBm, in unison. Apprently something in the ASUS does not like the later Firmwares.On my Samsung I can see the two signals - the ver. 2 on Channel 8 is stable as a rock and the ver. 6 on Channel 2 is also bouncing, but at a much slower rate! Running Speedtest.net a PC hardwired to the ver. 2 - I get 5.34 Mb/s Download and 0.47 Mb/s upload (yeah, my Internet sucks!) Running Speedtest.net through the ASUS/WiFi to the ver. 2 - I get 2.43 Mb/s Down and 0.65 Mb/s Up.Running Speedtest.net through the Samsung/WiFi to the ver. 2 - I get 5.07 Mb/s Down and 1.07 Mb/s Up.
I was upgrading the firmware of the WRT54G router when the notebook´ screen closed and it went to standby mode. It was stoped the upgrade process.Now only the ports and Internet LEDs light up, but the power LED is off.I also cannot connect to thenavigator for show the administrator´s window. Any procedure to recover the operation of the router in a situation like this?
I was in the process of upgrading the firmware on my Linksys WRT54G router when a connection interruption occurred. Now, the router will not boot up and I cannot communicate with it.Is there a way to reset the firmware?

My device is Linksys X3000 modem router.What happened: I `ve tried to upgrade my router over Wifi connection and it failed.when the progress was at 98%. Obviously I should not have done it over the WiFi.There wasn't any warning when I`ve done that.When I got to this situation, my modem has had only power LED on and it was shining red.I have tried using reset button(including 30sec-30sec-30sec method), but it did not recover the modem itself(asI later found out, it did reset the config only). The following method of recover worked for me:
- connect PC to the modem using wired ethernet connection
- if the IP address is not automatically assigned(i.e. DHCP server is down on the router), then assign it statically on the PC. This is a key moment. The subnet you should depends on whether the config was already reset by this time. If it was, then use the default network settings.
It should be 192.168.1.x subnet. The modem should have 192.168.1.1, you can take, for instance, 192.168.1.20 for your PC. Then go to the browser, and go the router`s IP address(192.168.1.1 with default settings). You should see a very simple web page(different from the standard interface), prompting.you to upload the binary image file and upgrade.After doing so, the modem reboots, and stands up!
Still, I think even given that I`ve tried to upgrade the modem using WiFi, that should not cause issues by itself. I expect that the modem would firstly download the binary completely,verify its checksum, and only then switch to it. So I can`t imagine how flaky wireless connection would disrupt this process. I believe the issue is caused by a bug.A support lady have also confirmed I should not have used WiFi for this purpose.If that`s the case, then there should be some sort of warning in the management interface before starting the upgrade, and perhaps, even a protection against usage of WiFi for the upgrade.
Region : UnitedKingdom Model : TL-WR1042ND Hardware Version : V1 Firmware Version : 3-14-4 to 3-15-4 ISP : Primus Saver
I had it all working fine, then I wanted to upgrade the firmware. The original firmware was 3-14-4. I downloaded and applied the 3-15-4 firmware. Now when it powers on the power light is on all the time. Immediately the sys, 4, 3, 2, 1, Internet, usb and wps lights flash once. Then about 5 seconds later the 4, 3, 2, 1 & Internet lights flash once, then a second later the cycle starts again. When I connect it to the PC it starts to make a connection on the NIC, but then the router resets. Model: TL-WR1042ND, Ver 1.3 . Is there a way to reset the firmware or get it working again?
Currently I have Verizon DSL and which supplied me with a Westell 7500 modem/wireless router. I am also connecting a Linksys WRT54GS (firmware Version: 7.2.08) to the Westell 7500.
When I connect via cable or wireless to Linksys WRT54GS I am not able to establish VPN connection. I get the error “Error 619: A connection to the remote computer could not be established. So the port used for this connection was closed”.
However, when I connect via cable or wireless to Westell 7500 I am able to connect to VPN.
I tried resetting the Linksys WRT54GS to factory settings and reconfigured but no success to VPN.
At work we have a Windows 2003 setup with VPN Role on it and on my laptop I am using the built in VPN connection within Windows 7.
I've been having an issue with my internet connection, which has been getting a lot worse over the past 1 month. I purchased the WRT120N about a year and a half ago, and occasionally observed dropped connections, but it was no big deal. Over teh past month or so, however, it seems like I get the "DNS lookup failed" error about every 15-30 minutes. Every time, I have to disconnect and reconnect my computer to my router. In addition, I will be disconnected from XBox Live. This problem may occur every 5 minutes or every few hours.
I have updated the firmware on the router. I have reset the router, and have reset DNS 1 t0 220.127.116.11 and DNS 2 to 18.104.22.168. THe network is configured as a DHCP. The X-Box has a wired connection, and my laptop experiences this problem whether I use a wired connection or a wireless one.
The router had firmware 2.0.x(?) and I tried to update to the latest FW, according to the webpage that's
Hardware is E1000 v2 according to sticker on back.The firmware update failed (no reason given) and the router now hangs in limbo where all it does is flashing the power LED.I set my PC to 19?22.214.171.124 and TFTP'd the firmware over to 192.168.1.1 - no errors reported and 192.168.1.1 is pingable. Held reset for 30s, then powered down the router for another 30s. On power-up the router still flashes the power LED.
went through setup twice, double checked connections, bought new ethernet cable from router to computer, still not connecting. However when i go from my modem to computer i get connected. could i have a faulty router. the router is new from walmart the ea2700.
