Updating firmware on wrt54g
In the upper-right-hand corner of the screen, you should see the words "Firmware Version" and then several numbers. If that's the number you see, then skip to step 12.If it's not, then read on to learn how to download the firmware you need.A new worm, or piece of self-replicating malware, nicknamed "The Moon" has been infecting Linksys E-series routers, and possibly some Linksys Wireless-N-series routers, by exploiting a vulnerability in the way the routers verify administrator access.Fortunately, upgrading to the latest Linksys router firmware and disabling the Remote Management Access feature will prevent the worm from gaining access. Do this by opening a Web browser on any computer or mobile device connected to the Linksys router and typing "192.168.1.1" into the address bar. I purchased a Kindle Fire last week and it works fine at work, at restaurants, etc. Some of the KF discussions I've been following suggest updating the router's firmware so the KF will recognize and connect to it. I use the router at home with no problems (we had a desktop and a laptop using it; now just the laptop).
Make sure no wireless clients attempt to associate with the router until the upgrade process is complete.As you see, it is generally not a good idea to buy any of the ones from version 5 and up, because that is the point at which the specs got rolled back.The earlier models are easily found for cheap though.You should have created a personalized username and password when you first set up the router.If you haven't, then leave the "User name" box blank, and in the "Password" box, enter "admin." If that doesn't work, type "admin" into the "User name" box as well. Check that your router is running the latest firmware.
