SMC 7004 VWBR part number 750.9821 firmware upgrade error error: "Upload data error! Please make sure file is correct"
my current firmware says: [V1.00.0012 2003.10.16] which has to be the original, but the readme firmware history starts at v1.00
-thought maybe it was directory problem...renamed file and put it in root...nogo
-tried bin for 750.638 (it was same size bin file)...nogo
-tried from another pc(b/c someone in this ng was having probs with a certain nic)...nogo
-looked for a utility (like a little program to do it b/c some of their other routers had one instead of using browser)...but a nogo
SMC KB not very helpful...and noticed alot more post in ng's in which i guess SMC doesnt post problems in their KB...looks like they just send you a replacement.
i have tried this when i first got it(cant remember when) but was unsuccessful...thought i would wait for new firmware...ha
i have DNS over VPN issues(i have workaround) and now i think i am having port issues...but i just wanted to update the firmware to make sure all my options were there.
i inherited this in which i traded my "working" Linksys BEFW11S4 to a friend b/c he couldnt get this SMC to work with AOL...shoulda known it was gonna be a problem. any suggestions?...besides get my Linksys back
please post here
