    Can you be more specific: where you updating through the internet, UMD disk or you download the file from your computer and saved it to the memory stick duo.

My blackberry curve is frozen, when this happens, i cannot get past the home screen. i have removed the battery 5 times, but it is still frozen.

Did you recently update your firmware version? If yes, then you have to exercise some level of patience when starting up the phone. Depending on certain conditions, it might take up to 10-15minutes to start up fully for the first time after a firmware update.
If this doesn't work for you(that is after waiting for about 15minutes) you can try the hard reset by pressing down the "alt", "shift" and "enter" keys simultaneously while the device is coming on. This could have happened as a result of a crashed firmware.
Lastly, pull out the battery for 10 minutes and put it back in. This should solve the issue.
Note that: the hard reset combination must be held down until the phone goes off and comes back on by itself.
Hope this solves your problem and thank you for using FixYa.

After over a year of good use, the past 2 weeks have seen the router repeatedly lose the internet connection after a minute or so of use. It reboots ok initially but then loses the connection again.

Try to upgrade the firmware of the router.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's website.
enter the model number. select proper version number and download the firmware of the router.
Once you download the firmware, you will need to open the router set up and upgrade the firmware of the router.
After upgrading the firmware, it is recommended that you reset and reconfigure the router.

Check if you can still connect to the the camera's UI, connect it to a router or computer. Try to ping its IP address and access the camera's UI, if ur able to access it, try to do the firmware upgrade again.

Continues to crash

Honestly this isn't a stable phone. You can upgrade the firmware, it does automatically the first time. However, sadly the best I can recommend is to start from scratch.

WA840G firmware went bad :(

Hi, Based on your post/description, I would assume that though you did not complete the upgrade, you were able to restore the WA840G to the original/old firmware. Second, you still wish to upgrade again but using a different method other than web configuration. Perhaps you can try a telnet session to or the default which is or the IP add you have set it to if you have modified it before. I have successfully tried this on a LinkSys WRT54G & NetGear MR814V2. Might or might not work for you. "?" or help should give you the basic line commands. But then again, if the system has crashed and the unit is bricked, that is a harder problem and you might be better off replacing the unit. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
