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 192.168.0.1 .
Re: Keep getting Firmware upgrade screen when connecting...
You have get the saoftware upgraded otherwise it's bit difficult to install it on your comp..
But still there is one way which you can try first shut down your comp...
then once it's off then start your comp and just when press on swotch hold down the F8 key on your keyboard umtil it takes you to a new screen that says safe mode at the top in that screen you'll find an option that says safe mode with networking select it through arrows keys on your keyboard and press enter...it willk take you back to your normal desktop and then try config the router with ipaddress again if it works then perfect otherwise contact dlink to get the upgrade...

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.
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 http://192.168.2.1 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".
The problem here is with the Linksys router that you have, what you can do here is to reset and reconfigure the router . To reset it press and hold the reset button of the router for 10 seconds using a pen or a paper clip while power is ON and then after that power off the router for 10 seconds and then run the setup CD to reconfigure it back....
Hey ! it seems that there is a problem with the Firmware of the router. The wireless connection is dropping. You can try to upgrade the firmware. Download the firmware from the support web site of the router manufacturer. and upgrade the firmware. make sure that you will upgrade the firmware using the wired connection to the router NOT with the wireless connection. Click Here for more info about the networking
I should first thank you for the clear details you have given about your connection .I will try best to help you.The firmware version can be older so check the firmware version and upgrade it. Try to open the netgear smart wizard page in your wired computer by going to www.routerlogin.com or 192.168.1.1.The USERNAME:ADMIN and PASSWORD:PASSWORD(default).We can troubleshoot this only if this page is opened.In the netgear page at left side blue screen under maintenance->router status check the firmare version if its older version then click on router upgrade and check for the new version from internet(click on check tab) and upgrade the firmware.Hope this solves your problem if not try with different laptop wirelessly connect if you are able to connect then its the computer problem contact your computer vendor.Rate me if i have helped you that will motivate me.Thank you.Have a good day.
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.
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.
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 http://www.linksys.com and upgrade the firmware on the router.
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.
