FS728TP attention firmware update!

Too bad, you can ruin a good switch poe by a stupid firmware update. Tried to update my FS728TPv1 to the latest Downloaded the zip file, you start the procedure to update with discovery of the smart wizard, message received "updated successfully"... but after reboot the switch is bricked. Did some reading, found I'm not the first guy with this case, should be updated first, startup code from to But it was not a code starting update file in the zip! I found somewhere on the netgear firmware french site the oldest, which contains ng_fs728tp - V5006.ros and ng_fs728tp_boot - 1005.rfb. I feel so stupid, I'm?... to open the switch box, found 88E6218-LG01 Marvel, used on some routers 10 years ago chip. anyone find a procedure to revive the switch, a tftp, a series or something connection session. I know netgear offer guaranteed for life and replace the switch, but not my case... just feel sorry a switch of the brick work


There is a solution, in case you brick the switch to update the firmware, do not update the boot code appropriate. The boot code is some program low level similar to the bios on the card. Did some deep research on Marvel 88E6218-LG01 Chipset, I found somehow that pin 52 and 53 are Rx and Tx respectively to integrated serial UART. The two signals are 12 (Rx) and IC U27 PIN 11 (Tx). The IC and passive components around him are not soldered because the switch is not a serial console. Near U27 is the serial J8, not used. The U27 is a similar to max232 chip. The idea is to make a connection with the switch using p52 series = Rx, p53 = Tx and, of course, GND, I soldered the wires to p11 and 12 of the U27. Then do a session in Hyperterminal using baudrate = 38400, data bits = 8, parity = none, stop bits = 1, flow control = none. Power on the switch, you will see power on self-tests, boot network device based on 88E6218 software version with ARM946E-S then: autoboot in 2 seconds, press return or ESC to interrupt and enter the dance. In those 2 seconds interval if you press the INPUT switch goes to the start with 6 options menu: 1 = software download 2 = flash file Erase 3 = 4 = diagnostic mode password recovery procedure entry 5 = Set baudrate terminal 6 = back. Choose option 1) then the switch is waiting for the firmware file "code using XMODEM download, $$$ writing and waiting...". Now go to hyperterminal transfer, send file > Browse for firmware .ros (before update wrong firmware), choose the XMODEM Protocol, and then click Send. File transfer begins, will take about 25 minutes. After that the switch restarts correctly, and discovery of the smart wizard he found. Update the firmware on family must to update the BOOT CODE. The boot - 1005.rfb can be found on this website: http://www.netgear-forum.com/forum/index.php?s=7d23113dd1660e3c9d613aa739513390&showforum=704 , in zip of the firmware. Have fun...

    Re: proxy server annoy 7.6.7 update?

  • Wan interrupts the connection after the firmware update

    Looks like the latest firmware upgrade is the source of the problems.

    I've just updated my timecapsule 1 TB of first generation version 7.6.7 and my 3 TB timecapsule new version 7.7.7

    Both are connected to the router of the provider of Internet services and extend the network even in my house.

    WiFi is stable until the upgrade, but now the connection is lost every few minutes or seconds.

    Both versions are later to the respective timecapsules.

    I end up having to downgrade if no solution is found.

    I powered the two market still nothing does not. Redefine the network and tried both hidden and not hidden, yet once nothing doesn't.

    Any ideas on what is causing the problem?

    Well, since nobody seems to have an explanation, and Apple are not out with firmware update after 7.7.7 and 7.6.7 I decided to downgrade the firmware to the previous version. I now run version 7.7.3 on the new 3 Tb Time Capsule and 7.6.3 on the 1st Gen Time Capsule. So far, the network is stable. Using WiFi Explorer Ii see that they use channel 6 and 8 respectively. Signal is strong and no dropouts have taken place so far. Hope the issue is resolved in the next firmware update.

    As I read in another post: firmware update does not solve a problem, you didn't. However, it can create a problem that you didn't.

  • TimeCapsule downgrades WiFi 2.4 GHz after applying the firmware update v7.6.7

    After applying the firmware update v7.6.7 free WiFi to TimeCapsule is now 2.4 Ghz instead of 5 Ghz.

    It was the update of the firmware with certainty that has made this... no doubt about it:

    • My mouse bluetooth interference notice when my MacBook is connected to WiFi 2.4 Ghz;
    • Before the update, everything is OK
    • After updating, my mouse mouse start jittering
    • < alt-click > WiFi icon in the menu bar confirms: the connection is now 2.4 Ghz

    Restart to e TM Mo doesn't change anything.

    In the TC WiFI options tried to put another name to the network successfully, but only 5 GHz can not connect to it: timeout error every time.

    Tried the hard reset of TC and reconfigure the WiFi... the same result, but with a difference:

    • Setting an SSID separated for 5 GHz connection (in the WiFi options) has now created a network I can access.
    • However, this is not the best solution... I don't want 2 SSID.

    It is not the first time Apple breaks things with updates... and I see people move away from Apple to this kind of situations.

    I also had bad experiences with OS updates lately and postpone the as much as possible.

    The problem is that I can't go back... or can I?

    Any help is welcome.

    Of course, you can, but it may or may not help.

    Sorry, don't know what this means, because there are 3 types of resets.

    Have you pressed the button of reset for 1 second and then release?

    Do you have the reset button during 5-6 seconds and observe the led flashing quickly until you release the reset button?

    Or something else?

    Have you restarted your Mac?

  • OfficeJet Pro 8620e ADF jam error after firmware update

    After you install the updated firmware from the touch screen of the printer, the printer restarts and now has an error that says "Original is caught in the ADF (ADF).  Open the cover of the ADF, remove and reload the original, then try again. »

    I went through all the steps to clear a jam from the ADF, but the opinion is persistent.  It is not (and was not before the upgrade) in the ADF at all.  Since this coincided with the update of the firmware, my suspiscion is that the firmware has not installed properly or something.  What am I doing here?

    This problem has been resolved using the printer instead of purchase and exchange for another.  I can hardly believe that the cables are working loose within two weeks, she was detained and then broke at the exact time that the firmware update has been completed.  In any case, the problem was solved by replacing the printer.  I don't have any feedback solutions until a month after I did.
