Linksys Router Basic Setup Missing Info.

January 1, 2011 at 07:41:42
Specs: Windows Vista
I am trying to configure my router (Wrt54GS) at 192.168.1.1. The basic setup page is showing incomplete information e.g. no option to save. My default browser is firefox so I tried to view it in Internet Explorer, didn't work. I updated Java and that still didn't work. Next, I tried to update the firmware that turned out to be a .bin file that my computer won't open. I had this problem before but luckily I had the setup wizard disc but now I don't. Any suggestions?

In the routers setup, go to the site, where you can update the firmware, then use the browse button to navigate to the .BIN file, you've downloaded, select that bin file and press open.
Then you should be able to update your firmware.
Also read the routers manual on howto update the firmware or your router or go to the Linksys support page and download the routers manual as a pdf file.

Thanks for your response!

The manual wants me to open up the browser, type 192.168.1.1, and click on the admin tab where their is a subtab for the firmware upgrade. Click browse and then select the .bin file.
PROBLEM their is NO subtab for the firmware upgrade because my Basic Setup is showing incomplete information.

Then, you are not currently logged in to the router as root.
Read the manual on how to login to the router, the username and password, if not change by yourself.
After successfully login into the routers configuration interface, you should be able to go to the admin tab and you also should find the firmware upgrade button.

I rechecked the manual to see if I missed anything. If "root' means logged-in with user name: admin and password: admin, I did that. I have the administration tab. I just don't have any sub tabs. If I could post a picture I would.

If you are in the Administrator menu, right under this tab, there should be a list of several options. One of it should be the "Firmware upgrade".

I pushed the reset button on the router and now I don't even have the Administration tab.

I figured out how to post a picture. http://flic.kr/p/979cVt

Have you installed another, maybe wrong firmware, to the router in the past?

No, I was never able to get on via the browser because of this issue. I had the disk.
