SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Linksys And Vonage Setup Through Comcast

Hi there,
I will try to make this as clear as possible, but if you have nay questions, please come back here and let me know.

You will need 4 things: 1 Surfboard Modem, Wrt54G, vonage router, computer. Put them next to each other without having plugged in anything ( no ethernet, no power cable!). Make sure that the WRT54G router is back to default settings by pressing the reset button on the back of the router for 10 seconds.

  1. Connect the power cable to the Modem. Power light on?
  2. If yes, connect the coax cable from the wall to the modem. (The one that looks like a TV cable)
  3. Connect the power cable to the router and wait until the power light is on steady.
  4. Connect your modem to the router. Plug an ethernet cable first into the modem and THEN into the WAN port (the label says "Internet") of the router.
  5. Plug an ethernet cable into one of the router LAN ports and connect it to your computer.
  6. Power on the computer.
  7. Open the Control panel and the Network Connections applet.
  8. You should see something called "Local Area Connection".
  9. Double-click on it and click the Properties button.
  10. Double-click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and make sure both radio buttons are set to "Obtain...automatically".
  11. Close all Windows by clicking "OK".(The second one takes a moment, because it applies the settings.)
  12. In the open window choose the Support tab and you should see your IP address, your Default Gateway (192.168.1.1) and your DHCP server (192.168.1.1)
  13. Open Internet Explorer and type "192.168.1.1" in the address bar.
  14. If you have reset your router to factory defaults, leave the username blank and type "admin" in the password field.
  15. On the first page (Setup), you should set the Internet Connection Type to "DHCP", unless you get a static IP from comcast (which i doubt).
  16. Go to the Wireless tab and ensure that wireless is enabled.
  17. Go to the "Security Tab - Wireless Security" and ensure that NO security is enabled for now.
  18. Open a new browser window and see if you can open a web page. Use an address that is unlikely to be in cache - try "http;//www.mit.edu" or so.
  19. Close your browser for now and come back here later to setup your wireless security etc.
  20. Now power on your vonage router and wait until the power light comes on steadily.
  21. Connect an ethernet cable from a LAN port of the router to the WAN port of the vonage router. (Plug it into the router first!)
  22. The vonage device should blink and establish a connection (Internet light is steady on). This might take a moment, because the device is downloading the newest firmware as well.
  23. Once the vonage router is on and the lights are steady (you didn't say which vonage device you have, so I can't tell how many lights there are), plug normal telephone ( not a wireless one) into the vonage router and see if you can get a call signal.
  24. If you were successful - sit back for a moment, enjoy the triumph and treat yourself with a nice drink!
There are a couple of things you still have to do, but the main thing is done.
  1. Make sure that you can access the internet from your wireless laptop before you start changing settings.
  2. Get a manual for the router here.
  3. Go back to your router's web page and set up wireless security (don't use WEP - that is not secure enough)
  4. You will have to setup QoS (Quality of Service), in order to prioritize your VOIP traffic, so calls go through clear even when you are surfing/downloading.
  5. You can setup QoS via IP or MAC address. Use your vonage router's MAC address (you'll find that on the bottom sticker), because it creates less overhead.
  6. If you plug in anything else into your vonage router, it might be on a different subnet and might not be able to communicate with your other computers (vonage router often use 192.168.15.x as their IP address)
  7. Once you're up and running and feel familiar with the settings for your router, I would change to a different firmware, because QoS is a crucial point for VOIP and I never was really satisfied with the Linksys firmware. I use tomato, for the simple reason that I was afraid of other more complicated firmware and you can always go back to Linksys, of you don't like it.
So...my fingers are bleeding now, but I hope this helped you out.
If so, please come back and let me know. Others might have a similar question.
If not, just tell me where you got stuck and we will go from there. According to the movie 'Galaxy Quest':
"Never give up, never surrender!"

SOURCE: Upgrade Linksys WRT54G2 firmware failed.

there are 3 variants of the WRT54G2 , v1, v3 and v5 ensure that you choose the right firmware for the variant(its on the bottom of the router)
Go to the US site as this has more uptodate versions of the firmware.
For example v1 in the UK is at 1.0.0.0 dated 2008
v1 from the US site is 1.0.0.4 dated 2009

Sudden shut down


It's possible that this is a hardware failure or a power adapter failure. Try to reset the unit and reinstall it again. You can also check for firmware updates available online. Try to use other power adapter as well with the same specs with the original power adapter.

Wrt160n vpn error 800


Error 800: Unable to establish VPN connection

This issue may be caused by a router that has outdated firmware.

Make sure that port 1723 is opened on your router.
For VPN connection , you can try opening port 500, 443-447, 10000-20000 and important port 1723 on your router.

I will suggest you to upgrade firmware on your Linksys router.
After upgrading the firmware, reset the router to factory default and reconfigure it manually.
Open the ports mentioned above and see if that works.

I have a Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter and a Cisco/Linksys WRT54GS Router. The signal is extremely poor even though the router is only 10 feet away. It does not appear to be an interference issue.


Hi,
You can update the Linksys Firmware to a newer version if is available, please check the Linksys support site
http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54GS
Another chance is to change the Wireless Channel maybe 11, to avoid any intereference with wireless phones.
