How do I know what my firmware is?

One way to find your current firmware installation is to login to your router using , then enter your username and password. (If you're not sure of these, check the label which should be on the base of the router.)

Click 'Maintenance' from the main menu, then 'System Status'. The firmware version should be under 'Router Status'.

Sorry, not sure what the 1 or 11 means...but you might need to know the version number of your router, so again check the label on the base of the router: you should see WGT624v2 or something similar.

When you know the version number, visit the Netgear website and select the Support Page for your version number:

This will tell you the firmware available for your router.

If you need to upgrade firmware, it's best to proceed very carefully! Use a cabled connection, and take a backup of your settings, as advised in the manual. :)

    PS: ....of course...'1 or 11' might refer to your router channel. If someone has suggested you change channels (if your wireless signal is dropping out, for example) the recommended channels to try are 1, 6, or 11.

    You can change these channels by logging into your router, as described above.

I bought the new Tamron 20-200 lens and after trying it on my Canon 7D non of my lenses will focus on that camera. What has happened?

Sure you did not switch to manual focus while testing the Tamron? Sure all settings are correct?
If the Tamron still auto focusses on you 7D, check the forums about this. I know Nikon sometimes messes up the firmware, when a non Nikon lens is used, but not on all camera's. And not with every firmware.
I don't know the 7D enough to check more details, but check everything about the AF settings. I can't imagine your lens did something wrong with the camera.

Glad to have been of help.

Though I've always considered the most important rule of electronics is that electronics works on smoke. If you let the smoke out of the box, it won't work any more :-)

Your description of the problem says that the firmware is corrupt. Reinstall the firmware. That should solve the problem. If the problem still persists then the display IC has gone or is going (I hope not). Should that happen then the phone will have to be scrapped as it becomes beyond economic repairs.

Cant load music on ipod nano

Did you perform a software upgrade on you NANo before this happened? The latest firmware is supposedly having a ton of bugs. The simplest resolution for this is to connect your Nano to your PC , open iTunes and use the restore option to restore the device to the previously installed firmware. Hopefully this will resolve the issue. Post back if its not fixed so that we can try something else.

make sure that you have a good power source and cables first.
it seems that a filter cap is not doing what it is supposed to do. which one, i don't know.
you could try to format the HD and update the latest firmware/OS and see if that does the trick. next , if you have new/er harddrive, you could switch it out.

keep us posted

No picture just sound

It is common. After the repair is completed, make sure the technician does the firmware upgrade to your set. The new firmware upgrade should be version 3008 and when the technician pulls up the service menu it will say it there. Let me know how it went. Lead Tech
