I am trying to upgrade the firmware on my Linksys v1 router from 1.0.02 to 1.0.03 over a remote 56Kb circuit.
I appear to be having a timeout problem. The upgrade always fails. I have upgraded several E1200s in my
office over ethernet, and the upgrade appears to finish when the progress bar is at 15%. However, on my
remote upgrade, the progress bar gets to 98%, hangs for a few more seconds, and then pops up a window
with "Upgrade failed".
I suspect that there is a timeout on the upgrade process, and that I can't upload the 3.8 MB firmware file fast
enough. Can anyone confirm this? If so, is there any way to increase the upgrade timeout?

Before upgrading the firmware of your router, your computer must have an active Internet connection to download the firmware file. Once the firmware is downloaded, you can proceed with the firmware upgrade even without Internet connection.
