E4200 Upgrade 1.0.03 Stuck at 98%


I downloaded the firmware from the Linksys site. I'm using IE v9 on a Win7 Pro x32. I'm using the E4200 as an access point so DHCP is disabled, no cable in the WAN port.


I uploaded the firmware but it seems to be stuck for 30 minutes at 98%. I read some threads saying it takes a while, but I'm not sure if it is locked up. The screen says not to interrupt the process so I don't want to reboot/reset and brick the router.


Should I just keep waiting?

You are connected via a LAN port with a cable to your PC when you started the firmware update correct?

give it a few more minutes... it's always best to connect your router to the computer via Ethernet cable for uninterrupted upgrade process.
