post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I want to update the software on one of my routers.

This is the setup curently:

DSL Modem>Linksys Router>Netgear Router

I want to update the software on the netgear router. But when I try to type in the addy for the router, I realized that the ip was the same as the DSL modem... so it takes me to the DSL modem istead ... Am I missing something here?

To Update the Firmware on your Router you need to Download the New correct firmware of the Netgear website for your Router and save it to the desktop. You then need to get into the Router then go to the ''update'' section of your router and then it will ask you to browse for the firmware file..select the one on your desktop and proceed to update it.

Try Updating Through another Computer so it doesnt intefer with your DSL modem.

and another thing. The only way I seem to get the netgear router is to run a cable from one of the slots of the linksys router into a network slot on the netgear. I was hoping to get the WAN slot to work but it seems not to like it.

I have from every comp on the network, I even tried remotly also using a VNC to no luck. I am about ready to thorw it against a wall and get a 8 port hub instead but if i can get this to work i could save money you know?

I would take the Router in Question and plug it into a Computer so you have the lan going straight from the computer into the router to update it then reconnect it to your Network mate..and seriosuly do not get a hub as they are clumsy and you will get alot more collision domains on your netwoork creating signal collisions and lost Packets in other words you risk your network to be more unreliable

yeah I would hate to do that I spent a good week getting all the bugs worked out of it where as the manually setting up each comp. But now they are all working fine, cept I cant get it to work with the cable coming off the linksys into the WAN slot this is strange.. :/

Are you making sure that the Cable is coming out of LAN 1 on the Linksys into the WAN on your Netgear or vice versa..as im sure you know you cant have WAN to WAN.

ok ok ok ok. i didn't read all of it above, but this is what you need to do. ( i think you have an IP conflict) remove your dsl modem from your network by disconnecting the uplink. take your netgear router and plug it straight into your computer. then from your computer, type in the IP address, log in. you should be able to change your IP address from inside the router. just change it to something like 192.168.1.2 (if your other router is 192.168.1.1) try to keep everything on the same network ip. then plug it back into your network and everything shoudl work fine. btw, disable DHCP assignment on your netgear router, that will help you out too.
