Re: E4200 v1 firmware 1.0.06 "Back Up Configuration" not working

Thank you very much, strych9. Obviously, the development people also did not test restoration from a backup. Has anyone here tested that restoration works properly? For obvious reasons, I'm not keen to be the first person to try this, lest I end up having to set up my router from scratch to recover. Thanks again.

Glad this is working.  I reset my settings to default, then loaded in my saved backup file and confirmed that the backup works as intended. There should be no issues whatsoever.

This workaround also functions in Google Chrome.

 

I changed:

 

do_href="Linksys_E4200V1_v1.0.06.cfg"

 

to:

 

'window.location.href="Linksys_E4200V1_v1.0.06.cfg"'

 

notice the ' and "

Not to add fuel to the fire, but I have also discovered that the "Security Log" and "Outgoing Log" do not work at all within this firmware. Unfortunately, that is a firmware code issue, not a GUI code issue. In my opinion, releasing a firmware revision without a working security log is completely unacceptable.

Now I am thinking these critical bugs was done on purprose. Just to get people to buy the newer Linksys line of routers.

Good work strych9, looks like you're doing the basic tests Linksys didn't bother with.

 

Doubt they put out this firmware mess on purpose, I think they are just incompetent.

edit - checked my 2400 - same, all logs OK except security, which always shows blank.

I saw this happen on my E3000 as well. Linksys do a very poor job of validating functionality before releasing firmware updates. They even left the "FTP Enable" button out of the GUI for the E3000 due to a stupid ";" in the wrong place in the GUI code. Shoddy work.

Re: E4200 v1 firmware 1.0.06 "Back Up Configuration" not working

I have tried DD-WRT on my Cisco Linksys E4200 v1.0

 

initial flash: dd-wrt.v24-23040_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini-e4200.bin
after that: kingkong-nv60k-broadcom.bin

 

I have also tried miscellaneous newer builds.

None of them seem to be able to support a working guest-network which is seperated from the regular wifi/lan using a different subnet like in the Linksys-firmware

 

I have posted this in:
http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=931202

 

I have been trying to get something to work for about 16 hours.

 

In conclusion: DD-WRT is not an alternative for me.
Though I will be using the kinkong-build for a while to see if the wifi-connection is constant. The Linksys-firmware (yes, even the latest) still had problems resulting in loosing the wifi-signal.

It gets really old seeing people constantly telling users to reflash, reset, etc, etc, when multiple people are reporting the same problem.  Try testing the *#O(*HY% software yourself and SEE what everyone is telling you to be true!!!!

Thank you so much, strych9. 

 

Belkin is on their way to losing business at this rate.  Forcing me to buy a new router when this one is working perfectly otherwise could gain them one sale.  What their shortsightedness is missing is the fact that they not only risk losing that sale, but also any sale that they would have made by word of mouth.  As of today, I will no longer steer someone toward any of their products.  In fact, I will actively advise against them.

 

If I intended to replace my router as soon as it went out of warranty, I would not have spent $200 plus on what was a top-of-the-line router when I bought it.  The only reason to spend that much money on personal use equipment is if you think you can trust that equipment to operate properly for a number of years.  This point seems to be lost on Belkin.
