Unfortunately, a failed firmware upgrade is the one thing you can't recover from. The only reset available on these devices is just going back to the original factory configuration. If the base software itself has been corrupted, then I'm afraid there is no way to recover. If the device is still under warranty, contact the vendor to arrange a replacement, or bring it back to the store from which you purchased it.

D-Link 500T status led is not working


Try resetting the router by pressing the reset button for 20 seconds and try again. If resetting it does'nt solve the issue then look for TFTP application for firmware upgrade or send us the model number of the router.

Wireless light not on, no wireless signat to computer

Try the following steps:-
1)Connect the computer using an ethernet cable and check the internet connectivity and then go into the router's setting's page and change the wi-fi setting's on the router by changing the channel and security and also enable the wireless router radio from the setting's itself.
2)If it did not work then Upgrade the firmware(drivers) on the router to the latest one available.
3)Even after upgrading the firmware the light status remains the same then restore the router to its default setting's i.e re-set the router and then re-configure it from the beginning.

DI-524 status problem

Did this happen after a firmware upgrade? If so, this link may help:

Apparently there's a utility which will force firmware to load on the router. The steps are a bit technical, though.

If that doesn't work, the router is probably toast. Time for a new one.

DI-524 status led not blinking

Here are the instructions

  1. Make sure that you have a copy of the latest firmware and it has an *.exe file with it. Because the router's configuration page won't be available, you'll be needing the exe to some sort of force the firmware upgrade procedure.
  2. Unplug everything attached to your router except the power cable and LAN cable connected to your pc.
  3. Configure your TCP/IP with this info: IP:, Default mask:, Default Gateway: and DNS Server: (Use only 1 DNS server). Save this new configuration and reboot your pc.
  4. Unplug the power cable to your router as the pc reboots. When everything is up and running, plug the power cable. The status led will be flashing like crazy. It's normal.
  5. Use the exe file to upgrade your firmware. Make sure that the utility file (exe file) is able to recognize your router or else you won't be able to do a firmware upgrade. Now this may take a while, keep pressing the Refresh button to recognize your router. Once recognized you would see there crash. Once you have this, you can now press the upgrade button.
  6. Wait for a while until the unit finishes the upgrade and once done, I think you have recovered the life of your router from the pits of hell. Hahahaha.
  7. You can now unplug the power of the router and restart your pc, see if everything is doing fine.
Hope this helps.

My colour printouts from new Samsung CLP-310 do not match original WORD 2000 docs colours (or compared to HP deskjet. Is there a MS patch for this?


There is an update for your printer. This is a firmware update. A firmware update, rewrites code located on the printer's main system board. The latest update is dated 10/17/08.

Flashing firmware does not have a go back element or undo, so it is really important that we verify your model and what seiries of printer you have. I suspect you have a CLP-300 Series printer and that the 310 of the 300 just describes some features added or left off and even who you purchased it from, in many cases.

Please look at these two photos and then post the data off the name plate for your model number in particular.

406eb47.jpg ccb435d.jpg

You will notice there are two lines to include in your reply.
1.) The Model: (first line)
2.) M/C entry (second to last entry in this photo of the label.

Once you verify this and I post the firmware update link for you, you will need to follow the instructions I include below.


[from PDF file on this firmware upgrade]

Samsung has released a new Software upgrade file for print quality, automatic error recovery, and toner save mode on color laser printers.

Procedure to Set-up Download Mode on Your Printer - CLP-300 series
Turn power off.
While holding down the ‘STOP’ button on the Printer, turn the Printer back on.
Keep holding down the ‘STOP’ button until all the LEDs turn orange.
Then release the ‘STOP’ button, and press it again, one more time.

1. How to Upgrade
Please make sure to check the printer model number before performing the firmware upgrade.
2. Release Notes
Improved on light printing quality at low temperature environment
Automatic error recovery at abnormal operation
Toner save mode by optimized toner supplying
3. Caution
After firmware upgrade is completed, green LED lights will light up.
Do not turn off the printer before green LED lights turns on. A power interruption will corrupt the process.
If the printer is connected by a USB cable, disconnect all other USB devices, except your keyboard & mouse, from the computer.
If possible, be certain the Printer is connected to a BackUPS

Firmware Update Confirmation Instruction
Model CLP-300 series
When firmware upgrade is started, status LED light will start blinking.
As the printer reinitializes, status LED light will automatically turn off and then on.
Firmware upgrade is complete when status LED stays on green.

After firmware upgrade is completed, the LCD will display the message ‘Ready Copy’ and the LEDs will stay on green.

4. If there is an Error after firmware upgrade
If LED is on red or blinking after firmware upgrade, set-up download mode again and re-try the firmware upgrade.

My 3com officeconnect doesn't work after upgrding the firmware

Are you able to login to the router? If you can reset the router to factory defaults..If you can't login to the router...Is there an external reset button on the router you could try to reset. with a paperclip? Otherwise, I had this happen on a linksys router/switch. New router time. You should just return it where you purchased the product. There was already something seemingly going wrong if it was rebooting. 3 weeks? just return it. don't even mention the firmware update. Here is the site info for 3com: OfficeConnect - Firmware upgrade fails with incorrect user interface image Problem: Incorrect user interface image Problem: Firmware upgrade fails Problem: Error when upgrading firmware Problem: Incorrect firmware Problem: Wrong firmware Fact: Firmware Fact: Download Fact: Update Fact: Upgrade Cause: The downloaded .exe has not been extracted Fix: The downloaded .exe needs to be extracted by double clicking on it. When performing the firmware update use the extracted files that were obtained from the "exe" file. e.g You will obtain a "bin" or "dlf" type of file which is the firmware required for your upgrade. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Unbrick my router by upgrade firmware

Either the router firmware was not for your system or the upgrade didn't take. If it just didn't take, you will have to reinstall the upgrade or reflash the upgrade manually. Your owners manual or the manufacturer's website should provide specific instructions on how to do this. Depending on the router you have you may also be able to access help information from an administrators screen if it is still accessible. http//: or or other predefined address for your brand of router.
