Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)

1 Answer

Firmware will not update

I've got the blinking power light which supposedly indicates that the firmware crapped out and needs to be updated. Hooking directly into the modem, I've been able to download the update and the Linksys software to update the firmware. I reset the router and plug directly into it. The IP Address will default to the standard 192.168.1.1, but after less than 30 seconds, it will change itself to a different IP address. I cannot figure this out. Even when using the new IP Address, the Linksys firmware update software cannot connect to the router to update.

    A completely different one, typically some slight deviation from the IP address I had when hooked directly into the modem.



    I finally called Linksys, and after a few hours, they said to send it back to them. Hopefully sometime in the next few weeks, I'll have a working router again. I will say that I've had much worse customer service experiences, although their's was nothing to brag about.

    You said that after 30 seconds of having an IP of 192.168.1.x, what IP address does it change to?

LG symbol on screen flashes on once and red light blinks twice slowly, no sound either. What does 2 blinks indicate ? please advise


Corrupted firmware. A firmware update is necessary. These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Power light on the router is Blinking very Fast


I have the same problem after doing a firmware update. I did figure out the slow blinking power light means it is in recovery mode and you need to load firmware using the "recovery tool" from Asus' website. I tried loading the newest firmware, the same firmware I had before the problem and the original firmware (all found on Asus' site), but nothing worked.
Did you ever find an answer?

System error e225


Hello 3G,

To resolve the issue Error e225,

Turn the main power switch off and then back on-ICMF 4000 series/D400 Series

or

Update the firmware :

There is a risk that the MF4150 will not operate if power interruption occurs
during the firmware update. Please make sure MF4150 is connected to
reliable AC power source.

1. Save the downloaded file "MF4150_FirmwareUpdateTool_V0xx.exe on local drive. (i.e. desktop)
Computer Requirements for update

- Equipped with a USB port (either 1.1 or 2.0)
- Free disk space: 100 MB or more
2. Make sure that Processing/Data indicator (Green LED) on the MF4150's operation panel is turned off.
If the light is lit or blinking, wait until all the jobs are finished (i.e., COPY, PRINT, and SCAN), and that the Processing/Data indicator is turned off.
3. Make sure that Error indicator (Red LED) on the operation panel is turned off. If Processing/Data indicator (Green LED) is lit and Error indicator (Red LED) is blinking at the same time, jobs are held in the printer memory due to an error, possible cause is out of toner or paper has run out, or toner cartridge is not installed. Check the LCD for and error message and refer to the documentation that came with the printer to resolve the error.
4. Disconnect Fax line cable from the MF4150 to prevent Fax reception interruption during firmware update.
5. Make sure the USB cable is directly connected to the MF4150 and your computer.
  • Do NOT use a USB hub to connect the cable, as it may lead to a connection error.
  • Make sure the machine is not in the Sleep mode (i.e., [Energy Saver] key on the operation panel is leit). To exit the Sleep mode, press [Energy Saver] and confirm that the Energy Saver light is off.
  • You need to log on as an administrator to perform this update.
  • Make sure that no other applications are running on your computer.
6. If [Found New Hardware Wizard] appears on your PC screen, click [Cancel] to exit the screen.
  • [Found New Hardware Wizard] screen may be displayed multiple times. Cancel anytime you encounter this screen while performing this update.
7. Double-click ?MF4150_FirmwareUpdateTool_V0xx.exe? that you downloaded and saved.
8. Double-click "MF4150_V0xx_FirmwareUST.exe" that is in the newly created folder as a result of uncompressed downloaded file.
9. Confirm that the machine is in the ready status, and then click [Transfer]

  • If an error occurs while transferring the firmware: Check if USB cable is properly connected. Click [Retry] to proceed.
11. When [Firmware transfer is complete] appears, click [Exit].
The printer starts the update process automatically.
<ERASE FLASH ROM> appears on the printer's display while the existing firmware is being erased.
Then printer's display shows <FIRMWARE UPDATE> while updating the firmware.

After updating firmware, power light is blinking


Is the router settings menu 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 available from internet explorer? The factory user password should be admin. If you cannot get the router menu to come up the firmware may have been corrupted. Hopefully you can get to the menu or try and re-install the firmware.

MacBook Software Updater - continually prompts to install an update


You're probably not actually flashing the firmware, but downloading the utility to do so. Follow these steps:
1. Quit all other open applications. Open the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware update which is in your Utilities directory

2. Click Shut Down in the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update window and wait for your computer to shut down.

3. Press and hold the power button on your MacBook Pro until the power indicator light flashes repeatedly, then release the power button to begin the update.

A status bar indicates the progress of the update.

Important: Do not interrupt the update.

Your computer restarts automatically when the update is completed and opens the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update.

4. Click OK, if the firmware is now up-to-date.

Status light is red


Hi, Based on your post/description, the Siemens AP/Router is at fault. This could have been brought about by lightning, power surge, plain hardware failure or system/software error. The red status light - on indicates an error (on the firmware)(blinking during start-up or when firmware is being downloaded/updated); WAN light blinking green - data transmission to/from your ISP (it is also possible that the router is trying to download corrective software or firmware update). Suggest you let it run for sometime just in case it is really downloading/upgrading firmware. If full reset of the router doesn't correct the problem, you may have to replace the unit. Good luck and kind regards.
