WRT160N Router Firmware - Download page incorrect

I am trying to check if the firmware on my new WRT160N was the latest (I have 1.02.4-CA). I found to the Linksys Canada support page for the WRT160N (http://www-ca.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Content_C1&childpagename=CAen%2FLayout&cid=1153781111465&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=1146512181N01) On that page I selected Downloads, then specified WRT160N and clicked on the link for "Firmware" which took me to http://www-ca.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Download_C2&childpagename=CAen%2FLayout&cid=1153781261058&packedargs=sku%3D1175241703067&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=6105812181B01 There are 3 firmware versions on that page and the newest one (5/14/2008) actually downloads the 4.9.8101 version of the MAC install wizard! The next newest version (1/8/2008, 1.02.2) on that page downloads the file WRT160N_1.02.2_US_code.bin which I sure don't think is a good idea to use over my Canadian firmware! I guess the website folks need to fix that. It doesn't look like there is any update to the Canadian 1.02.4-CA firmware version on my router?

Well try upgrading the firmware of the router & keep on holding tightly the reset button in such a way that power light is blinking on the router & then do a complete network power cycle i.e., unplug the power cables from the modem & from the router & then plug in the power cable to the modem first once all the lights are solid green you could plug in the power cable to the router & check out it will definately work!! or else you could try downloading the firmware through ftp.linksys.com & you should be able to resolve the issue.

Re: WRT160N Router Firmware - Download page incorrect

Sorry, it seems I wasn't clear.  The Linksys Support page for the WRT160N shows that the latest firmware version is 1.02.2 and the firmware installed in my WRT160N is "1.02.4-CA".  It seems there is a Canadian version of the firmware which is not available to the USA.  My question remains "How can I check for new firmware for my Canadian WRT160N"?

The link above should take you to the Canadian download page for the Linksys WRT160N.

Re: WRT160N Router Firmware - Download page incorrect

Thanks Frank; but if you look at the comments I made in my initial post in this thread that link actually downloads "WRT160N_US-MAC.4.9.8101.0-Setup_wizard.zip" which is the Macintosh version of the Setup Wizard for the WRT160N, not a new version of the firmware. That is why the Subject of this thread is "Download page is incorrect". I still need to know what the latest version of the Canadian firmware is and where I can check it.

Re: WRT160N Router Firmware - Download page incorrect

i second the idea of the firmware file being misleading.

 

in addition, the LELA almost broke my airport connection when i gave it access, it set all my services to inactive and only enabled ethernet. i could not activate any of my other services wihtout it turning it inactive agian. i had to go through some gruesome trial and error to fix it.

 

n now my airport seems to be sometimes sporadic too now, cant communicate with DHCP sometimes (never had that happen before)

I pass 3 hours on your website, i try the chat but no one can help me. I upgrade the firmware version and i want to go back to my old version 1.02.4-CA

 

The old version was in french. I dont find any firmware in french on your website. 

 

Where i can find it????????? please send me the information. It's stupid to delete a good french version of the firmware for the us old version on the canada french page
