This is for the pixes, I haven't upgraded an asa yet...should be close or the same

* find latest version of code, these are usually *.bin files located on http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/pix
* confirm the flash and RAM requirements of the PIX OS software versus what the PIX has (”sho ver”)
* make sure you have a backup of the old PIX OS and PDM to the tftp server (or at least confirm the software is there)
Note: You cannot back them up from the PIX, so you will need to download them and put them on the tftp server * put in a change control form
* once change controls confirms date/time do the upgrade:
wri mem*** only if you save your configs via tftp wri net conf t ca save all copy tftp://your tftp server ip/pix635.bin flash:imageskip this if you don't use pdm copy tftp://your tftp server ip/pdm-304.bin flash:pdm *** if this is a failover pair, upgrade the other pair reboot

Looks like you've posted the series of the Cisco ASA firewall model numbers. You should get the correct model number like: Cisco ASA 5505 Cisco ASA 5510 ... And so on. Check beneath the firewall, it usually tells you there.

    It's best to check Cisco's website, they'll have guides for all the series, I would assume.

DND, Headset, Mute and Speaker lights on. Why does it appear to be dead?


Your phone is probably broken. I have the LG IP8830 witch is a similar model and I'm using it with the SIP firmware. I have never seen my phones come up with a blank screen. You can try re-loading the firmware if you have it. You will also need a TFTP server setup. You can run TFTPD32 on a Windows PC as your tftp server. The following are the steps for re-installing the firmware on the IP8830.

Phone lock-up maybe caused by an error in transport during the
software upgrade. To correct this problem:
1. Disconnect power from the IP Phone.
2. Press and hold the [Up] and 2 button while reapplying
power.
3. Release the buttons when the Message LED extinguishes.
4. When the BootC screen appears, enter the digits 1, 2, 3
and 4.
5. Follow the prompts to configure IP parameters for the IP
Phone.
6. At the "Server Addr?" prompt, enter the TFTP server
address where the IP Phone can find the BootC firmware.
If already correct, press the [Next] button.
7. At the "Do you want to apply default?" prompt select the
[Yes] softkey to use default or [No] softkey to use
previously assigned parameters.
The IP Phone will reboot and return to normal operation.

Hope this helps

Factory reset


Chapter15 The Init Button
The Init button is used for maintenance: Simultaneously press Init button and turn on (by plugging
in the power adaptor) the Server until USB1 LED indicator simultaneously blinks. After that, the
Server will do the following tasks:
A. Perform a Factory Default of the MFP server, which will restore most of the parameters and
settings to factory default values,
B. Perform a TFTP server. You can upgrade new firmware using any TFTP client tool.
Note: After performing the tasks mentioned above, you have to unplug the power adaptor and then
plug in the power adaptor to restart the Server.

I cant test my 7941g because i keep getting a small bullseye on the bottom left corner of the screen


Your phone is trying to connect to a TFTP server address to download a firmware and/or config file update. You need to figure out what IP address it is trying to connect to (You may have to use wireshark or another packet sniffer to determine this).

Once you know the IP it is trying to connect to, you'll need to set up a small network with a TFTP server running on that same address, and feed the phone a firmware update and/or config file. It will likely not fully boot unless it gets a firmware update.

Cisco 7911G definitely dead?


You are very close to fixing your problem. You will need the correct firmware and files; these are proprietary but you should be able to acquire them from your certified reseller. Alternatively, here at IdacomUSA, we have the proper firmware on hand, and can flash the phone for you to get it back to life. Call us at 1-800-903-9190 or visit us at http://idacomusa.com

Hello all can you please help me on how to restore the configuration of my ASA 5520? thanx


If you are going for factory reset use the following commands

asa>enable
asa#write erase
asa#reload

Dont save the configuration when it prompts for it.

if you want to restore the configuration from the backup

1. You need to have a TFTP server
2. Locate the config file on your TFTP server
3. TFTP server should be reachable from ASA

then

asa#copy tftp flash

give the tftp server ip address
give the configuration file name (as exactly on the TFTP server)

reload

USR 5461 can't be configured


Verify 1st if you can still communicate with the router, if your running WIndows go to the command prompt and type ipconfig, check your default gateway address(192.168.x.x) then type ping(space)192.168.x.x if your getting replies your still lucky that means the firmware was just incomplete and to complete this without accessing the configuration utility, you need a tftp server installed on yuor computer to load the firmware of the router, check if your router manufacturer has a recommended tftp server, if not download any tftp server software from 3rd party manufacturer such as linksys or netgear, dlink. When you open the tftp software it will normally prompt you to enter the following information - ip address of the device you want to upgrade, password and the ocation of the file you need to load on the device(in this case the firmware(.bin) that you downloaded).

Hope this will help you get your router uo and running,

Regards.

How to upgrade the firmware on a BEFSR41


Firmware upgrades may erase all previous settings to your router's configuration. Before upgrading your firmware, make sure to record your settings. 1. Unplug and disconnect all computers from the router except for one. This computer must be plugged into the router directly. There can be no other network activity on the router during the upgrade, so be sure to power off all other computers. 2. Go to http://www.linksys.com/download 3. Select the model number of the Linksys router you have (BEFSR41) as firmware upgrades vary by model and version. You can find your router version underneath your router after the model number. For example, ?BEFSR41 Ver. 3?. 4. Click the Downloads for this Product button. 5. Once you arrive on the download page, click the Firmware button. 6. After the firmware page opens, click the link that says ?Click here to download the latest firmware...? and download the firmware file to your computer. 7. Once you download the firmware Zip file, unzip it. If you do not have an unzipping program, go to http://www.winzip.com and download WinZip, which will allow you to unzip the file. 8. After unzipping the firmware files, one of them will be called TFTP.EXE. Double click on it. 9. When the ?Upgrade Firmware? window opens, you will have three prompts. The ?Server? field is for the IP address of your router; by default this would be 192.168.1.1. 10. Enter the routers password into the ?Password? field; by default the password is admin. 11. Browse for the file in the Firmware Upgrade utility program by clicking on the button next to file with the '?' symbol on it. Look for the file named 'code.bin' in the folder where the firmware files were extracted to. 12. Highlight the code.bin file and click on the Open button to direct the TFTP loader program to put that file into the "File" box. 13. The full path should be displayed [example: c:\linksys\code.bin]. 14. Click on the Upgrade button to begin the upgrade process. 15. The upgrade should take about 1 minute, and you will be prompted after the upgrade is complete and successful. If you are still having troubles, contact Linksys Technical Support.
