    my Creative Zen V Plus says firmware problem and when i try to rectify the problem it just freezes with a box on it saying erasing firmware.... i have to wait for the battery to run out which can't be good for the mp3 surely?

    but it never lets me switch it on properly it always reverts to the problem screen when i switch it on, does anyone know what i can do?

I believe you will need to upgrade the firmware of the router. This model has issues with the firmware. Download the firmware of the router from the on the main computer. the computer should be connected to the router with the cable. Do not upgrade the firmware on a wireless computer.
open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware.
After upgrading the firmware, it is recommended that you should reset and reconfigure the router.

Its a matter of firmware in your phones.

Go down to your local retailer and have them update your phone to the latest update.

I'm not sure if mine is having the exact same problem as yours, but i have had a few firmware CD's that have been bad, and wouldn't download right, even though it said it downloaded. I am searching under google, and i found a driver that says it should work, if it works, i will post the link on the next solution. My computer has windows Xp Home edition, so i don't know if it will work. If you get the problem fixed, would you PLEASE post another solution under mine? that would be awsome. thanks. Ihope it works for both of us!!!
