Problem with wn2000RPTv3 firmware update

Hello Everyone,

 

I am struggling in updating the firmware of my Repeater WN2000RPTv.3 in windows 10. After unzip the file downloaded from Netgear website I get a same name file with a extension img. What I get is this message: Error upgrade file module name! (Module name is"WN2000RPT")

Anyone could help me?

I appreciate very much.

Thanks

hello fbritto

 

Make sure you are using the firmware for the V3 not the v2 or v1.

Thanks for your reply.

I am sure I am using the right update into the right product. This is a quite interesting question. On the rear of the extender I can only read WN2000RPT. I bought it about 5 years ago. Comparing the available models on the website I could find out that my model is the v3. So, I am struggling to update using the file wn2000rptv3-V1.0.0.18.img after unzipping the compacted file. I really don't know what's wrong.

Thanks again

Hello fbritto

 

According to the FW version you posted this is a V1 and that is the latest firmware so no need to update.

Hi DarrenM

 

Sorry if I bother you so much, but I am not sure what you mean when you say it is a "V1". My equipment looks like the WN2000RPTv3, although I can read only WN2000RPT in the rear. Please take a look in the photo below. The file I am trying is the WN2000RPTv3.V1.0.1.4. Thanks.

Hello Fbritto

 

What I am saying is this is not a version 3 of the WN2000RPT so you do not need that FW that you are trying to install you have the latest FW.

Hi DarrenM

 

I must agree with you about my firmware version being the most updated for the WN2000RPTv1. I apologize, but for a dummy like me, I can't accept my product as a WN2000RPTv1 as it shows up at Netgear website with a different picture.

Please, see below the picture for the WN2000RPTv1 at Netgear website.
