WRT54G version 6 firmware problem

I am trying to update my WRT54G v6 router. I go on the site and download the firmware but either I have no idea what to do with the firmware, which is very plausible, or the firmware download itself is messed up, which i doubt.

 

Could someone please help me I have never used a .bin file before and have no idea what to do with it

 

 

 

Thanks in Advance

Read the manual (available online) and upload your firmware file through the web interface of the router at http://192.168.1.1/

Re: WRT54G version 6 firmware problem

when i go to the web interface of the router nothing loads properly, there are no images or anything, all it shows are boxes with numbers in them, which i assume is my IP adress or something, but it is impossible to navigate the interface because none of the buttons or tabs load

Please make a screen shot of the web interface and post a link.

Please make sure that no security software (antivirus, firewall, antispyware) interferes with the web interface. The web interface uses JavaScript. You have to enable and allow JavaScript.

Try to upgrade the router's firmware using TFTP utility.Download the TFTP utility and save it on the computer.

 

Follow these steps to upgrade the firmware on the device : -


Double click the TFTP.exe file and click run.For Server- Enter the IP Address of the router that you assigned.  By default, the router is 192.168.1.1...For Password- Enter the password you assigned the router. By default, the router’s password is “admin”.For File- Click the triple “…” button and browse for the .bin firmware file...Click Upgrade button to start upgrading.  A progress bar should show up to show the progress.

Once the Upgrade is done press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds...Release the reset button...Unplug the power cable from your router, wait for 30 seconds and re-connect the power cable...Now re-configure your router...

Re: WRT54G version 6 firmware problem

I am told by time warner that since my laptop works fine off the modem I need a firmware upgrade on my router.  How do I do that if I have a wrt54g.  Your website says get it at http://192.168.1.1/  and that goes nowhere.

Welcome to the Cisco Home Community.

 

Go here http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/lbc/WRT54G and select the Downloads Tab.

Pick the firmware version of your router and download the latest firmware.

Hardwire your computer to your router and point your browser to 192.168.1.1

From there, you can upgrade your routers firmware.
