The reports, which were noted by an ISP administrator in Wyoming, claim that some customers running the Linksys routers have had their networks compromised.According to the reports, the compromised routers scanned network traffic rapidly on port 80/8080, saturating available bandwidth, and in some cases their DNS settings were modified.
Wait for the router to finish the boot process (the POWER light stops flashing), then press the reset button on the back for 5 seconds. Firmware upgrades can provide tons of new features and improvements to a router’s default setup.Whether it be scheduled reboots, MAC filtering, URL blocking, or port forwarding, some routers don’t provide some of these seemingly basic features.After 3-4 minutes "Upgrade successful" will come up. Verify whether the router is doing a reset/reboot or not. If you cannot connect, then reboot your computer then try again. You should see the following screen: You must have to set a new username / password for the router's admin interface. Repeat step 4 and upgrade the firmware again with the standard generic firmware. Now you have a new firmware in your router, now you need to load your hotspot settings.If the POWER light on the front of the router is starting to flash, then everything is OK. After 3-4 minutes "Upgrade successful" will come up. TIP: If you have troubles with the first step, please visit our troubleshooting page to find a solution to your problem.
