Keep getting Firmware upgrade screen when connecting to router


Just bought this router second hand - guy assures me it was working fine but when I try and connect my XP laptop direct to the router I get a firmware upgrade screen. I have attempted to send the firmware upgrade file to the router but then keep getting the same screen when I type the IP address .

Any ideas?

My belkin play router works fine on my xbox, yet when I try to use my computer I get a "this webpage cannot be displayed" error, but when I reboot the play router it stops for a few hours

Hi lets we tried to Upgrade your firmware version.

Updating your Routers Firmware
The following steps will show you how to update your routers firmware using its web interface.

You do not need to be connected to the Internet as this interface is built into the router itself.

Setup Steps

Locate and download the firmware file from the Belkin support site. (Type in your part number in the search box in the top right and look for "Firmware" in the title)

Save the file to a location on your computer where you can get to it easily, such as your desktop.
Connect the computer to one of the four gray ports on the back of the router.

Open a web browser on the computer.

In the address bar of the web browser, type and press Enter on your keyboard.
Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

Click on "Firmware Update" toward the bottom of the left-hand menu.
Click the Browse button toward the middle of the screen to search for the file you saved previously.

Select the firmware file by left-clicking on it and then click the Open button in the lower right corner of the window. This will take you back into the router's interface.

Click the Update button.

A prompt asking, "Are you sure you want to continue with upgrading?" will appear. Click OK.
A second prompt will open telling you the router will not respond during the upgrade and warning you not to remove the power supply to the router. Click OK once more.
Congratulations. The firmware has been updated successfully

Try resetting your wireless adapter first by unplugging it and plugging it back in. If that does not work, let me know what kind of anti-virus you are using and if you know how to use "command prompt".

No lights on except power light.

The firmware has been messed up. DDWRT might be incompatible with your router. I would highly recommend to reload the factory firmware or the latest firmware from Netgear's website. Loading 3rd party firmware will void the warranty of your device.

D Link WBR-2310

Sounds like a bad router or firmware issue. If you recently bought the router you can try and do an exchange where you bought it or you can contact D Link for a warranty replacement. Sorry I could not be more help on this but it really sounds like the router is dead or dying and not routing packets correctly.

Linksys router problem

Try a factory reset on the router, in most cases this can be done by holding the reset button on the unit down for 10 or more seconds. Once this is done you may have to enter any settings into the router again.

Also, try download the latest firmware from and upgrade the firmware on the router.

Firmware Upgrade Failed

Firmware upgrade is a simple but a delicate procedure. Make sure you are loading the correct firmware. You should get your firmware from the website of your router. Installing a THIRD PARTY firmware to your router voids the warranty of your router. Here is a tip for a successful firmware upgrade. BEFORE FIRMWARE UPGRADE(push the reset button of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power of the router for 10 seconds). Upgrade the firmware. After the upgrade push the reset button again for 30seconds, unplug power for 10 seconds.
