Re: 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.

Check the antennas make sure that they are secure and that their connection is not corroded. If you can down grade the firmware to an older version and see if that solves the problem. Also try reinstalling the firmware maybe it did not configure correctly.

Cisco ASA 5505 Firmware

Yes, it is possible and Yes you have to purchase it from Cisco.
Sorry, that is how they make the big bucks.
Consider a service contract on the unit, then you can download the firmware much cheaper.

Saibrains is correct unless your firmware is of earlier version. you might have to upgrade your firmware. Also you can not use a port #
No ports required for Ping as it uses icmp packets

It needs to allow icmp 'echo-request' (type 8) packets out and icmp 'echo-reply' (type 0) packets in
to allow ping request. On earlier versions of the sonicwall firmware it only absorbed Ping request as to stop hackers from ping attacking pass the firewall.

check the manufactures website for your model and see if they have newwer firmware.

The GUI should have a place where you can set it up

the best thing to do here is have a firmware upgrade which can be downloaded from the Linksys site. Base from experience (we have been using a lot of linksys products and currently we are using an RV016), these lock-up problems are caused by firmware problems and can be solved by firmware upgrade.

Routing problem

I don't know if this will help because I don't see what you and seeing but here is an idea: In every routing scenario I have experienced, you must specify a default gateway with a specific IP address. only points to the device itself, not the other WANS. The gateway IP addresses should be statically assigned. If there is DHCP involved, insure that the gateway address is not part of the DHCP scope but in an excluded range of reserved addresses. For SMTP to work the gateways (and you should have 2 or 3) must be properly configured and TCP port 25 enabled.
