REVERT TO OLDER FIRMWARE

I have a WVC54GCA wireless camera and recently did a firmware upgrade from  v 1.00R24 to   1.1. 0 1. build 01.  Since the upgrade, I'm having major trouble with the utility and I want to revert to the older firmware...I have spent several hours on the telephone with Linksys tech support, and they aren't able to remedy the problem...the best they came up with was to have me  install a utility that is meant for the WVC80N Camera.  I complied but am not satisfied with the result.  I want to revert back to the 'original' firmware that came with the camera when purchased about a year ago.  I'm not certain that reverting will 'fix' the problems, but I don't think it will hurt.  Is there a way to reverse the firmware upgrade and start from scratch?

Re: REVERT TO OLDER FIRMWARE

Its hard to find the older firmware of your camera. The older firmware is not available on the linksys website, may you can try to google around and you might find the older firmware for your camera.

Re: REVERT TO OLDER FIRMWARE

Hi, same type of problem here. Tech support had me update firmware to v.1.1.01 build 01, and now I can't get any motion

detection to work at all. When I bough this wvc54gca, it had v1.00R24. It worked, but wouldn't allow setup of FTP.

When I called them for that, they had me update to v.1.1.00 build 02. Now that firmware version worked excellent, and fixed

the FTP problem. The next call to Tech support, and they had me update it again to v.1.1.01 build 01, and that has really killed any motion detection recording. I need someone to share with me the version v.1.1.00 build 02. That is the only firmware version that works on my wvc54gca. Please, if you have it let me know. Thank you.

Re: Found It! v1.1.00 build 02

Hi,

I looked for about 7 hours online, and finally found the correct firmware v1.1.00 build 02 on a German website. 

Even with the translation turned on, I could not read half the site, but this is the correct firmware download.

I put this firmware on my wvc54gca, and voila, it is now working perfectly again! Do NOT  use the newer

v1.1.01 build 01, or you will NOT have any motion detection recording ability at all. 

Here is the link for the German website I found the download at. The actual firmware file name is: DYFF08-407-11002.bin

on their page it is listed as wvc54gca firmware download. I hope this helps solve this problem for you like it did for me!
