Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)

1 Answer

Empty firmware interface

At some point, I think I may have upgraded my firmware for the wrong hardware version of my F5D9230-4 (I have ver 3000). My router still works for wired connections, but the firmware interface is virtually empty so I can't adjust values. I'm not sure if I need to change settings on my browser (Firefox 3.07), but I can't access the firmware fields, even though the page comes up properly for 192.168.2.1. Will pressing 'reset' for 7 seconds restore the firmware to the original? Is there something else I should do to load the correct firmware?

    The hardware version is posted on the bottom of the unit as ver 3000. The '-4' is constant for all hardware versions. I did run the easy install wizard hoping it would reinitialize. I also downloaded the latest firmware version associated with ver 3000. Generally, I have upgraded firmware from the firmware interface, but since it's empty, I have no way to install an upgrade (or downgrade) because I there's little on the page that is legible. I have not tried pressing reset for the reason you sited. I know it will only set to factory defaults. I don't want to be disconnected from the Internet in case something goes awry. I was hoping naively that reset also restored the original factory installed firmware.

Firmware is on the device itself, resetting will only reset the settings on the device to factory defaults, which might be worth a try at this point.

If you didn't before, the proper firmware is located at http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=F5D9230-4&aid=8593&scid=0

The -4 probably means your hardware version is 4000, use the easy install wizard located on the right side of the page.

    If it comes to it, you can always plug your computer in to the modem for internet connection if the reset makes you loose that.

Can not access web interface


I think you're out of luck. If you had posted this info with the 5 other posts you made you would have gotten this answer sooner.
You have over-written the PROM on the AP with garbage.
You could contact Engenius and see if they will flash the PROM with a working image otherwise you have a piece of junk.

How to update firmware version


You haven't specified the router, so this is general advice.

Individual routers may vary in the way they check and update their firmware, so the best starting point is reading the manual.

First, see which firmware version is installed on your router. Then check the support section of your product's website for firmware updates. Some routers are able to perform a check for updates via their web interface.

If you download an update, make sure to use a LAN cable between PC and router to perform the upgrade. Don't use wi-fi! Backup your settings if you're cautious, but as a rule custom settings shouldn't change after the upgrade.

Here's a step-by-step guide.

I got the old 407291 software version on my machine and would like to upgrade my firmware, but LG says : Contact your dealer --- Please help


You can download any available ODD (Optical Disc Drive) updates from http://us.lgservice.com. Click Product Support, click Optical, choose your model number from the list, and click go. Click the Drivers & Software tab. Download the latest version posted (highest number).The firmware for all recent drives works with Windows. Before running the update, make sure the drive is empty. Close as many programs running the background as you can. Run the downloaded executable file to start the update. Some will automatically start updating the dive and some will require you to push "Upgrade" or "Start". If the firmware doesn't see the drive it was designed for, it will not install.
WARNING: Never update the firmware if the problem you're having is the drive isn't seen by windows, won't write with the included software, or other interface related problems. Unless the firmware specifically states it fixes the problem you are having, firmware updates normally don't fix these types of problems. Trying to update the firmware when there are interface problems can damage the drive's firmware. An error when updating the firmware is usually caused by a problem with the drive interface or there is more than one drive connected to that IDE channel.
IMPORTANT: do not interfere with the drive during the firmware update. If an error occurs during the upgrade process, or the upgrade process is cancelled during this process, damage to the drive can occur. If you experience any problems or have any questions, please contact our LG customer support line toll-free at 1-800-243-0000.
hope this helps

How to Update PSP to Firmware Ver 6.20

It's easy to update/upgrade the Playstation Portable (PSP) 3000 system software to firmware version 6.20. There are two ways to do a PSP 6.20update - regular file download and network update. We did an update on our pink PSP 3000 using the network update procedure since our place has wifi.
Why did we choose network update in updating our PSP firmware to ver 6.20? It's much simpler. Here is a quick tutorial on how to carry out PSP 6.20 update using Network Update (Method 1):
  1. Go to Network Settings to configure your PSP WLAN by setting up an access point.
  2. Under Network Settings, it would be best to choose Automatic to simplify the process. Your PSP console will search for any wireless network available nearby.
  3. To Update System Software to the latest 6.20 firmware version, Go to Network Update. Be sure your battery is full because the update will fail if you turn off you PSP console or if the unit shuts down due to lack of battery power.
Method 2: Download File To Update PSP 6.20 Firmware Using a PC. If you prefer to update your console using the download method, here are the simple steps in doing this:

I'm trying to upgrade the firmware on a belkin wireless router


upgrade of Firmware is at your risk...
never upgrade Firmwares....they are not ment for that....
your hardware may be rendered useless after firmware upgrades....the chip inside your hardware is programed to run based on a certian program installed as a firmware from the factory....sometimes upgrades will screwup your hardware....so be careful and do it at your own risk...

Want to upgrade firmware version 9.1.52


MP3 XINTAI Firmware. Please pass it to the other repliers at the forum, or anyone who needs it.

Hi pals.

At last!, I've backed-up the firmware for Xintai MP3 Player from Wilson Co. Ltd., and put it here:

http://www.paginasprodigy.com.mx/darkwing/Xintai9152_Wilson.zip

Don't worry cause one of the files (at UI30.RES) has an incorrect checksum. It's due to prior edit on ASCII labels.

I couldn't say it is really the firmware you want, so you must check and verify thoroughly before proceed.

Please note:
1.- Do not update or reload firmware if your player is working fine (more or less).
2.- If this firmware is not EXACTLY the same version, for the same chipset, there's no guarantee. The player could not work or, even worst, could suffer defintive damage.
3.- It's highly recommendable you BACKUP the existent firmware, despite damage suspects.
4.- To backup and/or restore firmware for this player, you can use "S1res" Ver 4.1, downloadable at:

http://www.s1mp3.de/tools.s1res.html

For restoring firmware, you can also use the "Player Upgrade Tool" Ver 4.18 or superior (part of "MP3 Player Utilities"), downloadable at:

http://www.mympxplayer.org

Enjoy your music.

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.

I do not feel comfortable performing the installation the Optional Enhancement Upgrade for DiMAGE 7, can I have the camera upgraded professionally?


If customers do not feel comfortable upgrading the DiMAGE 7 firmware themselves, they can send the camera in to the NJ repair facility with a note stating "Please Upgrade Firmware". Their camera will be upgraded, and they will be charged $49.95 (plus tax and shipping). They will receive back their upgraded camera, and a DiMAGE Viewer Ver 1.2 Upgrade CD-Rom*. (They will not receive the firmware upgrade on CD-Rom or the new DiMAGE Viewer) There is a 2-3 week turn around time once payment has been authorized. * images captured with an upgraded camera cannot be opened using previous versions of the DiMAGE Image Viewer Utility 1.11 or earlier. A DiMAGE Viewer Ver 1.2 upgrade CD-rom has been bundled with the DiMAGE 7 Optional Enhancement UPGRADE Firmware. The previous version of DiMAGE Image Viewer Utility must be installed before the DiMAGE Viewer (Ver 1.2) update can be loaded. If customers do not feel comfortable upgrading the DiMAGE 7 firmware themselves, but they want the DiMAGE 7 Optional Enhancement UPGRADE and the New DiMAGE Viewer 2.0, they should purchase the kit through our on-line store, then send the camera in to the NJ repair facility with the Firmware UPGRADE CD-Rom that they purchased. As long as the firmware CD-Rom is sent with the camera, and the camera does not show damage that may void the warranty or cause the firmware to not install properly, there will be no charge for the camera to be upgraded. There is a 2-3 week turn around time once the camera has be received. If customers attempt to install the firmware upgrade on their camera and experience a problem, or the upgrade does not complete, they should send the camera in to our NJ repair facility with the Firmware UPGRADE CD-Rom and a description of the problem. As long as the firmware CD-Rom is sent with the camera, and the camera does not show damage that may void the warranty or cause the firmware to not install properly, there will be no charge for the camera to be upgraded. There is a 2-3 week turn around time once the camera has be received.
