REST / Delete user / firmware update errors

I need your help if possible seeming NETGEAR won't assist me. I just bought a netgear STORA on ebay as my server died last week. I received it. had to hard reset the system and I was finally able to out in my own user name/password and server name. For some reason the system WILL NOT allow me to upgrade the software/ firmware as it is stuck on version 1.2:2.0.0 which I think is the original setup. Not only that I can not delete the OLD user account that was from the previous owner. I'm not a tech guy so I would greatly appreciate the help. When I log into the system from the main screen it asks if I want to apply the update. I select yes and it just sits there. Like literally I left it running for 12 hours like that and it did nothing When I cancel out and go intp the preferences screen it shows there is an update ready for download but then I get a download error message when I try to get the update. I have a netgear router and the UPNP is turned on with IP assigned and ports shown and applied. from here I am completely for a loss of what is going on. Please help. is no longer around and I have absolutely no where else to turn. I thank you for your time and consideration. Best regards, Amal Centers.

Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to
Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
If you cannot log into your router:
Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults.
however, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.
If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection.
Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and Clicking Apply.
If there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings.

Try deleting that update and reload an older version. Either the new version is messed up or it downloaded with errors. You could also try reloading it again.

Netgear DG836GT

OK. First, that dg836gt_1_02_09.img file does not seem to be a firmware file. You need to get a .zip file or a .bin file to upgrade the firmware. Check Netgear's website for the current firmware. If it is a .zip file, then you need to extract the .bin file from the .zip file with winzip software. Then, log into your router with Internet Explorer by typing it the routers IP address in the address bar like this Enter user name and password. Look for a tab that states software update. Browse for the .bin file you downloaded or extracted from the .zip and click update.

Phone turns itself off when i open my pictures

It might have something to do with the firmware of the phone. I've been browsing the repair forums and it seems that a lot of the problems in the LG phones can be repaired with firmware upgrades. If you take it into your local Verizon store they should update the firmware for you for free. I called them about one I bought off eBay (haven't received yet) and they said they would try to fix it for free for me with a firmware upgrade.

Toshiba P100 JR1E will not boot at all.

When doing a BIOS update, known as a firmware update, the process should never be stopped. But your wife has learned that.
What you need to do is go on the web and find the latest firmware update onto a bootable cd and install it. When you install a firmware update, you need to have the AC adapter plugged into wall socket.
You should be able to find the firmware update at Toshibas' website.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
