DGN1000sp cant uplad firmware update

Hi all

I have recently gotten a Netgear N150 DGN1000 wireless router. I run a main computer and also an Xbox.

I set it all very easy had no problems all was fine both computer and xbox was wired.

Today i moved the room around and it meant i had to use the wireless function on the xbox however it refuses to work.

Xbox says that ... so i looked into it and i know my port isnt forwarded as on the xbox only said "moderate" so i tried to do this with no luck from research seams like i needed a firmware update netgear didnt find any automaticly so i downloaded from netgear website and tried to upload netgear told me that its the wrong file type or version.

so this is where i am stuck.

basicly i need to port foreward (or so i belive) but cant update the firmware.

p.s. xbox now just signed in just to lose connection when i loaded up a game. :@

1. for any reason this unit was provided by your ISP then it may have branded firmware which you cannot use netgear firmware

2. if not then make sure pc is wired to the router and use IE browser.

Re: DGN1000sp cant uplad firmware update

Has anybody found the Recovery Utility for this DGN1000SP router.
Mine has Orange firmware and I need to replace it with original firmware.
It did not come with a CD

Re: DGN1000sp cant uplad firmware update

When using tftp is the file type to be uploaded .img when I lookup guides to using tftp is suggests .chk http://forum1.netgear.com/showthread.php?t=30453 If the type is .img it does not work for me, but perhaps I have not got the timing as to when to start the tftp session correct, that's why the recovery utility would be better !.

Re: DGN1000sp cant uplad firmware update

EVERY firmware for EACH model is different.

use PROPER file name for PROPER model and PROPER firmware.

*.chk
*.bin
*.img

ALL are used with netgear models but ALL different. use proper file name accordingly

Re: DGN1000sp cant uplad firmware update

I'm not sure your advice is correct.

I had already tried the version for DG834's but it does not work for me as it does not find the router in stage 3.

I have now found this page, I do not know how old it is but it says the 834 version is not suitable and there is not a version for the new DG's

http://support.netgear.com/ci/fattach/get/109/1311011828/redirect/1/filename/Firmware%20Recovery%20f...

As there are comments on the site about downloading the correct version for each model range it appears the 834 version won't work on the DGN1000.

Searching the support site for "dgn1000 firmware recovery utility" does not return anything related to it until item 31 on page 4 !

I have tried many times but I have not been able to get tftp to work perhaps due to the timing of starting the upload.

Re: DGN1000sp cant uplad firmware update

if tftp does not work than because branded firmware is design that way.

go to myopenrouter.com and look for jtag , this is last resort and does require more work with correct cable to get it work..
