Question about Computers & Internet
Duo plus 300wr router. My connection keeps timing out when i am downloading files, i am a 1mbps line with uncapped adsl from telkom. I never had this problem when i was on capped internet. I want to update my router firmware but my firmware is 120.70.6 and can only find 120.70.5. Will updating the firmware help with the problem? Or is there a other solution? Need help urgently
Trying doing some "ping" and "internet speed" tests. Then you will have a better idea of what kind of download speed you are actually getting. You can also use your "Performance" function in "task manager" to monitor your internet network activity. That should give you the kind of information you need to actually troubleshoot the problem.

SOURCE: Updated Canadian firmware
check the exact model of your router with the version number.. it can be found underneath the device itself.. you could also check the firmware on the router's page by accessing it, then go to the status tab.. on that kind of routers, if the firmware ranges from 1.50.0-1.51.2 you need to upgrade that because it gives you a problem.. the latest version is 1.52.2.. those are routers of version 5 and 6.. you can download the firmware at www.linksys.com/downloads.. select NA and usa first then type your model number and select your version number.

I was having the same issues too. I followed the steps dotted all over the internet and was getting stuck in exactly the same place. No matter how hard I tried, I just kept getting the 'invalid filename' issue.
Eventually I figured it out - the way that Netgear/Virgin have blocked firmware updating is to break the filename checking page so it doesn't accept any files. What we need to do is bypass the filename checking code so that the firmware upgrade system can then handle the file, and we're going to do this by manipulating the web page using a tool called Firebug.
Here is the solution:
1) If you haven't already got it, install Mozilla Firefox 3 (there is good reason for this - I'm not just shamelessly plugging it! :P).
2) Install the 'Firebug' extension for Firefox from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1843 and restart your browser when requested.
3) Navigate to your router's admin page, and fill in your login details (if you don't know them, it's likely to be the one written on the bottom of your router).
4) Navigate to the router upgrade page (the one where you select the firmware to upload' and select the location of the firmware file, like you would normally. Now, instead of clicking the 'Upload' button, press F12. This should bring up Firebug in the bottom quarter of your screen.
5) Now, click the button at the top of the Firebug panel and then click on the 'Upload' button. This will bring up the code for the upload button, where it does the filename checking. It'll look like this:
6) It looks like Netgear have actually stripped out the real checking code so it can't be used, so we'll need to fool the page into thinking everything's fine and dandy with the filename so it can update the firmware. Click where it says "return checkData();" and replace it with "return true;".
7) Finally, click the upload button. The router should now accept the file and start updating.
And hey presto! You have a non-nargled wireless router with the latest firmware!

3.Click Download Tab
4.Now enter the hardware version of the router (which you can find by turning the router upside down)
5.Now you can download the firmware which is a .bin file and save it to the desktop.
6.Open the router page and click Administration and click Firmware upgrade.
7.Select the file from the desktop by clicking Browse and start upgrade.
8.Turn off the router for 30 seconds after upgradation and turn it on..
i hope this will resolve the issue.
