To ensure that your Router is working fine, you need to update its firmware as it comes. Companies unveil updates for routers to enhance their working, and this process works for Linksys routers as well. However, at times, firmware updates can make a Router work improperly or completely killing the functioning. Let’s find out as to what happens when such situations occur.
If you, like me, means you too have killed your Linksys WRT5 4G router after a firmware update, do not despair, there is always some way out of the unsuccessful updates, I will list below two of the ones I found for my case. There is one thing that I would like to mention that there is no need to worry when you see your router not working after updating the firmware because like all other problems, the problem that arises after updating can be easily solved.
If you are not sure whether or not your router has stopped working after the firmware update is checking the front lights. If the front lights are behaving differently from how they usually behave, then your router is not working in the right way and needs repair.
The first option to make it work again is from a type of safety module on the device. To do this, hold the reset button on the back of the WRT54G for about one minute and then turn the power off / on. Do this twice to make sure that the procedure actually worked.
This should restore the original flash of the device if the eraser (or killer) has not completely erased its memory. If this does not work, you should probably call for a Brutal Force method, which is to open Linksys and short the flash memory chip to completely erase the contents of the Linksys. Once this is done, you will need to redo the installation procedure for the new firmware on the router.
You can download and install “Linux firmware” that in my opinion is the best one that currently exists. This is because it has many additional configuration options, such as increasing the power of the router’s antennas in order to increase the range of the device (of course, this configuration also decreases its useful life).
If you have troubleshot your Linksys router, yet facing the problem while accessing your internet, then you should get in touch with Linksys router setup help and support providers because those will be able to assist you with this or any problem that you are experiencing in the router.
