Belkin router firmware malfunction

I have a belkin f5d8233 4v3 router and after a firmware upgrade to v3.01.29 (Aug 15 2008 18:24:38) i am experiencing time outs whenever the router tries to connect to the ISP's DHCP. unfortunately i have not found the version of the firmware i had before and which worked perfectly fine anywhere on the net.

i read that downgrading the firmware was not possible anyway. is that true? if not, where do i get a suitable firmware for v3 of the router so that i have a stable internet connection again that does not disconnect me every time?

It is recommended to perform a hard reset after updating the firmware of the router. I guess you haven't done it that's why your connection keeps dropping. To hard reset the router, press the reset button at the back of the router for 20 seconds then unplug the power for 30 seconds and plug it back in.

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...

Go to the Belkin support section at their website: http://www.belkin.com/support/

Look for your model router and download the "firmware" upgrade for it. Once you go install the up to date firmware try to give the router a reset. Hopefully doing all that will get the router working again and you connecting to the Internet.
