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.

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'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...

Frimware Upgrade


Apparently not, but I'm guessing you already knew that.
http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT54G/download

Look carefully at the label and the firmware installed in your router. The 1.02.5 is listed for 5 and 6 only and version 8 is for 8 only. There is no 7 listed, so it was either a special run or there is just no firmware upgrade for it yet. It must have been perfect :-)

Any idea where to download the DI-LB604 firmware ver 1.01 ?


The following site has a 1.02 beta version of the firmware:

http://ftp.dlink.ru/pub/Router/DI-LB604/Firmware/

However, it also has the flash utility.....you could most likely save the firmware from your 1.01 router then use the flash utility on that site to flash the firmware you just saved to your 1.00 router :c)

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

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.
