Question about Hitachi WIP-5000 IP Wireless Phone

Open Question

Hitachi WIP5000A - WPA firmware available?

I have a Hitachi WIP5000A currently upgraded software version v2.2.6 LA1 and bootrom v1.0.3.
Is there a latest firmware/bootrom available that will allow the phone to access WPA WiFi networks? I understand it might be version 2.5.4 but cannot find it anywhere, not the bootrom that may required with this software version.

It seems Hitachi are now discontinuing this phone, so not sure how long support will last, so keen to get it working on WPA as very pleasewd with the phone

Please find above your manual, inside here is all you need to know for now and any future references.
If that firmware upgrade box keeps popping up, I suspect that NO, the software isn't up to date? As usually it "Checks" to "See" if it is and only indicates to upgrade if it isn't,also if you do try to upgrade and it is current, the update simply will either do it over the top again, or upgrade so there is nothing to loose, so to speak.
I don't think you can "Turn the warning off" I think the only thing that will do this is an actual update?
You most likely would be best to simply follow the instructions in the manual and try to update the firmware, and see how you go. Most often Firmware upgrades only address certain "Problems" or additional "Features" that may have been added.

Have you put the hdd from the laptop into slave mode, its on the back of the hdd, there might be a "jumper" that you need to reposition, failing that only insert the 1 hdd from the laptop and make it the only hdd, it should have an operating system on to run as normal. You can see the <jumper> on the right of this picture, you will need to connect both teminals (slave) with a little plastic jumper.

Hi please tell me how to unlock nokia 6500 slide

you can try to check if theres any updated software/firmware for your 6500. you can check that from this website:

then enter the code which is located at the back of your phone.
you can check the your current firmware by typing *#0000# from the standby screen


if it shows that theres a latest software version than the current version of your phone then upgrade your software using Nokia PC Suite. then it will reset your security code and settings.

My Hitachi 55VS69A has an upgrade slot, did Hitachi ever produce one for this model TV?? If so, where can a aquire one?? Thanx Mark

DTV version 0109.0001 was the last version released. You should contact Hitachi if you need it, as it appears to be only available to servicers (I didn't see it on the customer website anyway... double check it you like). They should be able to mail it to you with instructions on how to install it. However, if you are not having any issues with the product, there really is no need to upgrade the TVs firmware. This update will not give you any added features.

We have a Hitachi 42hds69 tv no picture but have sound. I have sound and picture on most channels, but on 2 digital channels, I have beautiful picture, but no sound. help!!

Here is what you need to do to fix this. Call Hitachi Global Storage Technologies & request for the firmware upgrade.
1-800-HITACHI (448-2244)

They will send it to you for free. You get a small SD card that plugs into the back of your TV just below the Cable Card Slot. I wouldn'd have known it was there unless the instructions in the mail packet told me so.

To determine if you need to upgrade go Into the Setup Menu. Then, Go to Software Upgrades & look at the software version. I had 0110.xxxx. the version I upgraded to was 0125.0000 & it fixed the audio problem on 7-1 & 11-1.

now all channels work great.

Getting The WRE54G To Connect With The WRT54G

The WRT54G, WRT54GS, and WAP54G all must have the latest firmware versions available installed in order to connect with the WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander. Here are the minimum firmware version requirements that you must meet: * WRT54G (all versions): at least firmware version 2.02.2 * WRT54GS: at least firmware version 2.07.1 * WAP54G (all versions) : at least firmware version 2.07 To Identify your WAP54G Version Number: To find out which version of the WAP54G you currently have, flip your Access Point over to look at its underside. Near the serial number label, near the Linksys© logo, you will see your model number and a possible version. Labels for the WAP54G version will look like one of the following: * WAP54G (no version means Version 1) * WAP54G ver. 1.1 * WAP54G v. 2 For WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 Users ONLY: (if you have a WAP54G Version 2, you may proceed with the 2.07 or later firmware upgrade) NOTE: Before upgrading the WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 models to firmware version 2.07 or later, make sure your Access Point?s current firmware is version 1.09.1 beforehand. The version 1.09.1 code performs an important OS upgrade for these versions of the Access Point -- it must be loaded before using later firmware.
