I recently updated the firmware on this router but was using the wireless connection and it disconnected before the update was complete. I know through reading the online documentation that you can upload the firmware using TFTP but how do you do that. What program should I use and what IP addresses etc need to be configured. I have a windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit operating system Thnxs Regards, Vishwal

Never Upgrade the Router on Wireless, it might Corrupt it
Try to Reset the Router Completely
then again Try to Configure using a hard Wired Connection to Router
Next time for any updation or changes try Wired Connection, its Best

Also For Wireless Disconnections, try to change channel and Mode for Wireless and Observe the Connections

What to do when security light is orange?


Reboot
  • The most basic way to attempt to fix a router problem is to reboot the device. This is accomplished by unplugging the powericon1.png cord, waiting for a minute and then plugging the power connector back in. If the orange light continues to blink, you will have to update its firmware.
Download New Firmware
  • Even though the wireless router is malfunctioning, downloading new firmware is possible by disconnecting the malfunctioning Linksys device from the Internet connection in the wall, then using that jack to plug your machine directly to the Internet. If this is not possible, use another computericon1.png that can connect to the Internet. You can download a firmware update directly from Linksys (see Resources).
Install New Firmware
  • Once you have the firmware update available on the computer affected by the malfunctioning router, open the file and follow the instructions to upgrade the devices firmware.

I currently use the Belkin G Plus MIMO as a router but now my iPhone which is always connected while in inside the house is suddenly disconnecting and I'm having trouble connecting back, what should I do?


This is most likely a result of your recent iOS4 update on your iPhone.
Check the Belkin Support web site to see if there is a firmware update available for your router.

If that's not the case, try power-cycling the router and deleting the entry for your router in your iPhone and recreate it.

It said error code 51030


Error Code: 51030
The only wireless network within range of your Wii console is not configured or is not compatible with the Wii.
  • If you are getting this error after completing a system update, this is usually because the console resets to using the first connection slot after an update. There are two things you can do:
    • If you know which connection file you were using before, you can select that connection file, then select "Use this connection" to change that to the default. You will need to do this each time they download an update.

    • If you don't know which connection file you are using, or if you would prefer not to update the active connection file each time, try to clear, and then re-create your connection setting in slot one before doing the remaining troubleshooting.
  • Check for interference that may be preventing a successful connection. Click here for tips.

  • Check to see if the router you are using is a known to be incompatible. Click here to view our list. If your router is known to be incompatible, we recommend using a different router if possible.

  • Make sure that the SSID (network name) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Wii console's settings. To verify:
    1. Login to your router's settings (click here and select your router, if available, for information).
    2. Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
    3. After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the manual settings of the Wii console that the SSID appears exactly as listed in the consumer's router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.


  • Look up your router, if available, in our list of wireless routers, and check for any special notes that may be necesary to get the connection to work properly.

  • The router may not be assigning an IP address to the Wii console, and a connection using the "Manual Settings" may be necessary. Click here for help.

  • Your router may require a firmware update to work properly with the Wii console. Firmware updates can usually be found on the router manufactruer's website; consult the manufacturer for more information.

Playstation 3 disconnecting from wireless gaming


Linksys loves to ship their routers with out-dated firmware. If you haven't updated the firmware of your router, that would be the first thing I'd do. From what I've read about routers and PS3, a lot of routers had trouble when they came out but had firmware updates to resolve the problem.

You'll need to go to the below link and select your version to get firmware downloads specific to your Model router and version number. The version number is listed on the bottom of your router next to the model.

http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT54GS/download

Be sure to read up on how to update the firmware and be sure you only update the firmware from a computer connected via WIRED connection to the router. Doing it wirelessly will cause disconnection from the router mid update and will cause your router to become a paper-weight!

http://www.linksysbycisco.com/static/us/Learning-Center/

The above link is a good website to find out a lot of information about Linksys routers and how to secure/update/configure them.
