Hi, I am also trying to upgrade. Unforaturely, my unit is old and still at firmware version 1014. I would really like to upgrade to something newer. I've tried the 6051 version several times. I have the unit hardwired to the router and have held the reset button for 30 sec as suggested. Still get a "Upgrade fail" message.
Can someone please point me to an older version. I've tried google and surprisingly can't find an old version of the firmware anywhere. If anyone has the 6050 firmware file can you please send it to me in an email or post a link where it can be downloaded.
Or please send a PM. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I to get failure message trying to upgrade from version 6046 to 6051, on both my XP PC and my Vista Laptop. I'm in the process of adding the print server to a newly created home wireless network. I was able to set up the print server and install the original driver using my vista home premium 32 bit OS, but the printer will not print wirelessly. On my XP OS the cd's setup wizard installed the old 6046 firmware version and everything printed fine wirelessly using a linksys wireless G USB network adapter in the PC. I followed the directions for upgrading firmware and got the same error message on both computers. It said make sure I entered the file name correctly. I already reset the print server once to get the password reset to the default before I could setup the server. Do you think resetting the print server again and power cycling the router and modem will make a difference. The router is a linksysWRT110. After reading all the posts, it seems like a problem with that version of the firmware. Hasn't Linksys fixed the problem by know. I'd be happy to upgrade to the 6050 version if there's too many issues with the 6051 version. What do you think I should try next? Thank you.
