Question about Linksys RV042 VPN Router

1 Answer

I Upgraded RV042 to latest firmware from Linksys Site and now Router Continually reboots

After upgrading to the latest firmware from the linksys site for the RV042 router, the router continually reboots itself and sometimes stalls. I tried to roll back to an earlier version of firmware but am still having the same issues. The router was stable prior to the updated firmware, I am really looking for some kind of solution. HELP

    I don't believe the Linksys website would have supplied me with a corrupt firmware version. What I ended up doing was reloading the router with an earlier version of the firmware and it seems to have resolved the rebooting issue. Thanks for the help....

    im sorry. i didnt say that clearly. i think there might have been some sort of virus(spyware, adware, trojan) in the firmware upgrade that you downloaded. what i would reccomend is that you contact Linksys. you can probably get thier phone number off of linksys's support page. hope this helped and sorry about the last reply

I think you can try upgrading the firmware on your router,

Connect the computer to the router.
Download the latest firmware.
Open the setup page of the router and upgrade the firmware.
After upgrading the firmware, reset the router and reconfigure it manually.

sounds like a bad firmware updgrade,

roll back the firmware by redoing the upgrade with your backup that you made prior to the upgrade.

you made a backup right? they may provide older firmwares on the manfactures website linksys is usually good about this.

I'm attempting to upgrade the firmware on my Linksys BEFVP41 to the latest version. When I click the upgrade button, the progress bar starts, but then the page goes blank before it's halfway through. ...


try downloading the firmware again.
It is a possible corrupted file from the site.
you may be able to download it directly from the linksys site or contact them by phone to check that the file is valid

My wrt600n start playing with my speed it change it every minute from 0.3 Mbps to 14 Mbps. how i can fix it


A couple of suggestions.
First, check your signal strength. The further you are away from your wireless router, the less signal strength you have. The router compensates for this by operating at a lesser bandwidth.
Next, make sure you don't have something interfering with the wireless signal. Microwaves and cordless phones are two major culprits for messing with the 2.4Ghz signal on a "G" router.
Last, check for the latest firmware from Linksys' website. Sometimes there are buggy things that just need to have a firmware upgrade to fix. Consult your product manual or the Linksys tech support site for firmware upgrade instructions.

OK the main problem right now that the only data carrier in Saudi Arabia (STC) is upgrading its infrastructure to provide high bandwidth to end users. STC is using Huawei MSAN which doesn't support linksys.

Here is a firmware update which they say it will overcome some of your problems.
