Here are the steps :

Visit www.linksys.com and use the search function on the website to locate your specific model.
(The instructions on how to perform the upgrade is also available in the download page complete with illustrations.)

Download the FIRMWARE to your computer.
Hardwire your computer to the router (recommended)
Access the router's configuration page.
Go to the firmware update tab and click update (it will ask you for the firmware file, just browse your computer where you saved it)
Then press OK

My wireless portion of my router has not been working, and a reset has not helped. I was told by an on-line help section that my firmware may need to be updated.


If you can still access the router setup page, yes doing a firmware upgrade will be a good thing to do here to correct the wireless problem, to download the firmware you can go to linksys.com and just select your routers model and proceed with the download and with the update....

Wrt54g2 wireless doesn't get past the acquiring network address point.I'm using wpa2 with aes - wireless configuration is manual.


Unfortunately you did not give more information, so I 'm taking a wild guess here. If this solution does not solve you problem, let me know.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either
  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2
XP Service Pack 2 computers by default support WPA but not WPA2.

To upgrade an XP SP2 computer to also support WPA2, install the "Wireless Client Update for Windows XP SP2" (link) from Microsoft.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Wireless will not connect to internet after installing XP Service Pack 3. Router is a Linksys WRT54G2, adapter is a Linksys WMP11. Router is set to "mixed".


Try upgrading the firmware for your routher and the linksys WMP11. Also try setting router to 802.11g instead of mixed to see if it connects.
