If the firmware upgrade has failed there's a possibility that the router went bad already, first thing to try here is to reset the router by doing this steps, Press and hold the reset button of the router for 30 seconds while power is ON, then after that unplug the power of the router for 10 seconds and hopefully all the light will be back to its normal but if still the same and you cannot access the router setup page better contact Linksys and if its still under warranty have it replace....

Firmware version


Wireless routers contain built-in programmable logic called firmware. The firmware is embedded software that implements network and security protocols for that specific model of hardware device.Every wireless router ships with a tested version of firmware provided by the manufacturer. However, most routers are also designed to support a firmware upgrade process. This allows the manufacturer to provide enhancements to routers already sold. Manufacturers generally provide firmware upgrades as free downloads from their Web site.

Additionally, a few manufacturers (like Linksys) provide their firmware as open source code on the Internet. Programmers worldwide are free to modify and extend the code with new features for their routers. Several versions of this hacked firmware can be found on the Web, but the average homeowner should avoid these types of firmware.
The Firmware Update Process
You begin a firmware upgrade by downloading a binary file package from the manufacturer's Web site. After the package is set up properly on a PC, an administrator can launch the actual upgrade from the wireless router's administrative console. The router will stop functioning if the upgrade fails to complete. For this reason, manufacturers generally recommend an Ethernet cable be run from the router to the PC to ensure maximum stability during the update. Consult the router's product documentation for details.
Immediately after purchasing a router, check the firmware version to ensure it is the latest version. Firmware can be installed on a router at the factory several months before the router is sold.
Then, check the manufacturer's Web site occasionally over time for any new firmware upgrade postings. Each time a firmware upgrade is posted, the manufacturer will provide notes detailing the enhancements it provides. Feel free to skip an upgrade if the new version does not offer any interesting features. However, if a router is performing sluggishly, freezing unexpectedly or experiencing dropped connections, firmware upgrade often supplies a quick fix.

We have a 3CRWDR101A-75 3com wifi router and its not upgrading the firmware, I downloaded the firmware from the site and then when I try to upgrade all I get is file verification failed... any thoughts...


The downloaded file is "corrupt", and thus it fails the "verification" process.

Download the firmware again, and compare the two files.

Or, use a different computer to download the firmware, and to do the firmware-update.

Power Light Blinks, can't communicate with Linksys Network Adapte


Seems to be a common issue among these routers. If you tried to upgrade the firmware via wireless connection then it will generally fail. It is recommended to upgrade through the wired connection. In most cases if the upgrade failed and will not reset, most likely the firmware on the router has been damaged. Your best bet is to purchase a new router.
