Cannot upgrade WRT54G.v5. All I get from the web page is a bin file?


Hi Friend,

Please refer to the link

http://www.linksysbycisco.com/APAC/en/support

Enter the model number of the router. In the second page click Downloads & drivers. In the next page select the hardware version of the router and scroll down a little. You will see Firmware. Please download it and save it on your desktop. It will downloaded as .bin file, so do not worry.

Now type 192.168.1.1 in the web browser and hit enter. Enter the username and password (if not change then type admin in password and leave username blank).

In the router setup page click Administration and then click Firmware Upgrade. Click browse and select that .bin file and click upgrade. After the upgrade is over, turn off the router for 30 seconds and switch it on.

I am having a problem replacing the firmware in my Linksys Wireless-g wrt54g v5 router. I have downloaded the tptp.exe file that lets me upgrade the firware manually and it says error connecting to the...


I don't know where you downloaded the "tptp.exe" file, but I can tell you right away that this is not the right format for upgrading a firmware. You should have a file with the ending ".bin" downloaded instead.

If you are using Linksys firmware, go here and download the file "FW_WRT54Gv5v6_1.02.7.011_EN_20090727.bin".

  1. Connect to your router with an Ethernet cable. Do NOT do this wireless!!!
  2. Log into your router and go to the "Administration" tab. Follow the link to "Firmware Upgrade".
  3. Browse for the file you downloaded before.
  4. Press the "Upgrade" button.
  5. Now take your hands off the keyboard and mouse!
    Leave the page alone and don't touch your router until the upgrade is finished and the router has rebooted. Go get a coffee or something, but leave your computer alone until it's done.
    I really can't stress this point enough - I have seen several dead routers due to impatience.
If you are running any third party firmware (Tomato, DD-WRT, etc.), let me know, but the upgrade process is pretty much the same (especially point 5.;-)

If you have any more questions with any of theses steps, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Seems like this is a problem with this model, try the following: Upgrade the firmware of your router: ► you may find the exact model number and version number underneath the router itself on one of the stickers. If it's a WRT54G v5 upgrade the firmware, make sure the firmware version is 1.00.9 and above. To find the firmware version: ► open up internet explorer ► on the address bar type in the numbers 192.168.1.1 ( username just leave it blank, password as a default is admin) ► go to the status page: look for the firmware version To download the firmware: ► go to www.linksys.com/downloads ► search for your product model number and version the list ► click on downloads for this product ► firmware ► download firmware ► usually the file you download is a zip file so extract the contents 1st To upgrade the firmware: ► go back to the 192.168.1.1 page ► go to administration ► firmware upgrade ► browse for the files you extracted and use the file that ends with a us_code.bin ► and then just upgrade Then reset the router for 30 seconds and voila ur done with the upgrade! here is Linksys' 2nd level T/S phone# 18668705819 If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

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.

FIRMWARE


You will not be able to open the file as it is. You have to install the firmware from within the router configuration page. Access the router like 'http://192.168.x.x' and then find where it says firmware upgrade, locate the downloaded file from your PC and then upload it.
Let me know.
Thanks

Information About Management Mode for Firmware Recovery


What is Management Mode? If you encounter an irrecoverable condition with the WRT54G v5, you can use Management Mode to recover the router by uploading a new firmware image. In Management Mode, the router will have just enough functionality to load a newer firmware. You should be able to recover the router is most situations. When will the WRT54G v5 enter Management Mode? The WRT54G v5 will enter Management Mode when: * The router's firmware is corrupt (for example, when the router's Power light is blinking), OR * When the router has been reset incorrectly using the following steps: 1. Unplug the power cord. 2. Press and hold the Reset button. 3. Plug power cord back in (Reset button still held in). 4. Wait about 5-10 seconds. How do I get out of Management Mode? * To get out of Management Mode, simply unplug the power cord from the back or router for ten (10) seconds and plug the power cord back in (without using the Reset button). If the router's firmware is complete and without error, the router will start up normally. If the above does not work, try: * Download a local copy of WRT54G Version 5 firmware that you can use for recovery. Visit http://www.linksys.com/download to download the latest firmware. After unzipping and extracting the firmware file, click on the Browse button from the Management Mode page, select the firmware file, and upgrade the firmware. After this, Reset the router normally (by holding in the Reset button for 10 seconds) and the router should exit Management Mode. How do I enter Management Mode manually to recover my router? NOTES: * The PC that will be used for the recovery MUST be connected to the router via a hardwired Ethernet cable and not a wirelessly connected computer. * Be sure that you have a local copy of WRT54G Version 5 firmware that you can use for recovery. Visit http://www.linksys.com/download to download the latest firmware. * In most cases, the router will be able to provide an IP address via DHCP when in Management Mode. If your PC does not automatically receive an IP address from the router, you will have to set up a static IP address for the upgrade. See Answer ID 534 for more information. * When the router is forced into Management Mode, the Power light will blink. 1. Unplug the power cord from the back of the router. 2. Hold down the Reset button. 3. While holding down the Reset button, plug back in the power cord to the router. 4. Continue to hold the Reset button for five (5) seconds. After five (5) seconds, release the button. 5. Wait for about one (1) minute. Then, on a computer connected to the router, launch a web browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox). 6. Type in the router's IP address of http://192.168.1.1 into the Address field and press the [Enter] key. 7. The Management Mode - Firmware Upgrade interface should appear. NOTE: If you accidentally enter into Management Mode, you can exit by simply unplugging the power cord from the router and by plugging it back in. 8. Click Browse and locate the firmware file. 9. Click Apply to start the firmware upgrade process. 10.Once the firmware upgrade process has successfully completed, an "Upgrade Success" message will appear to confirm that the upgrade has ended. 11. Unplug the power cord from the back of the router and plug it back in -- this will restart your router using the new firmware.
