Microsoft MN-500 Firmware...

Question: Microsoft MN-500 Firmware...

Well, I decided to take a look at my dad's router settings to see if I could improve them in any way shape or form. And I found out his Firmware was grossly out of date (2003!) so I decided to update the firmware. Well I can't, for the life of me find the MFing firmware update for this thing! I search it on Microsoft's website and all the links lead to their 404 page. A little help pelase?

Preferred Solution: Microsoft MN-500 Firmware...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Microsoft MN-500 Firmware...

I believe microsoft stopped supporting their networking equipment. I have that same router and my firmware is from october of 2003.

No one is really pointing fingers leading to my deciding to lump them all together. I recall when Lumia Amber was announced by Microsoft (and Nokia was not defunct), the official releases didn't take so long to arrive. I was almost prepared to put it to the efficiency of the system; I actually did. Fast forward and it is 2014. First, it was the WP 8.1 release which was to arrive on eagle's wings in January. Cut very long story short, hopes were crushed when Microsoft decided to play Side B of the cassette to disgruntled enthusiasts. Well, I would forgive that delay having seen the grandeur of the 8.1 update. Great work, good stuff. That was 4 months ago, if I didn't lose my count. (And there are only 12 of such months in a year, if anyone needs to be reminded.) Lumia Cyan came much later than could be warranted, especially given the paucity of its content. But again, those who had their hands on the DP wouldn't complain that much. It's mid-August and still no Cyan even though Nokia and Microsoft are now married. Here is my fear: If now that only a sizable number of Lumia models are out there Microsoft is struggling with putting updates on our phones, what will happen three years down the line assuming the current rate of releases of Windows phones?
Perhaps, Satya has already seen this and so made the recent move to rejig the company. I want to believe Microsoft does not need anyone to tell them that the singular greatest thing that the smartphone era ushered in is the magic o... Read more

Answer:OS/Firmware updates, Microsoft and Partners

First off, writing huge posts like this is a great way to prevent ever getting a reply. No one wants to read a post with a bunch of meaningless stuff. Keep your posts short and straight to the point.
I'm not quite sure what your question is. Are you asking what will happen for future updates?
You aren't going to get official answers about that from here. You'll get people speculating and saying what they hope. The answer to your question is that you'll need wait to find out,Are you complaining about the time it's taking to get Cyan?
You should probably give us more information then. Like your phone make/model, your mobile operator, your region, etc. These things take time. The steps are:Microsoft has to make the update (This has been done).The OEM has to create the firmware update for the specific model and country variant and implement any mobile operator features/locks.(Only Applicable to Branded Phones) The mobile operator has to update their apps and ensure the update doesn't break anything or chew through data for no reason on their network.
Step 2 and 3 go back and forth while the mobile operator requests more changes from the OEM and then testing is re-done.Are you asking something else?
Next time write a post that doesn't go off on random tangents every other sentence.

So I have just been chatting with a Microsoft live chat person named Hoody.
Great support, my surface pro 2 would not go into sleep mode or automatically turn off display. After him / her walking me through all the settings (which I had already done) he then told me about the two finger reboot which I did not know about. Hold down the volume down button and the power button until you see the logo appear, then switch on and log in as normal. This fixed the fault.
Whilst discussing with the support person he did inform me that the new firmware is due on January 14th at 2pm EST. I did not ask for this information he just offered it to me.
I am a new Surface Pro 2 user, recently moved away from my loved Playbook thanks to a wonderful present from the wife for Xmas.

I have recently bought a few Microsoft wireless display adapter for my projectors and I really wish that microsoft would roll out a firmware update that would cause them to power down (even if for 30 minutes) after a preset time (that could be set in the
windows 10 app) once the computer disconnects from the adapter. I fall asleep watching the projectors often and really used to like it how they would shut off after the computer disconnected. Now they stay on all night long using power creating heat and sucking
my power down the drain. I have tried a hack by putting a electric timer on the usb adapter than i am powering it on, but i software solution would be much easier.

Is it possible to replace a routers firmware w/ something other than the original firmware to update from wep encryption to wpa encryption and all the other features that these new routers have? If so is this hard to do and is there a big risk or really screwing things up?
 

Answer:Replacing router Firmware w/ third party Firmware?

nope its easy, and as long as your smart and follow the few basic guildlines very unlikely chance of damaging the router. Biggest suggestion is never do the update via wireless as if you loss signal or what not could loose a bit of data for the router update.

If I cannot use it as wireless access point. Is there a firmware hack to make it a wireless client or a repeater?

Hi,I recently bought my first CD burner. It's a Sony Spessa USB Plus CRX100E/X2 drive. I found out that it can't quite burn an entire 80 min/700MB disk, but that there is supposedly a firmware update that fixes it. I downloaded a firmware update program from Sony's website (found here), and flashed the drive with the default firmware file (CDRW0008.BIN), but it didn't seem to do anything except change the driver to an EEPROM driver. I switched back to the original driver, and it was as if I had never done anything...The firmware program came with another BIN file, ZERO.BIN, so I tried flashing that. I guess that was a mistake, because now the drive doesn't work at all - it's recognized as a "non-specific QT processor with JG". I tried changing the driver back to the original again, but this time Windows won't use it. It just says that there are no compatible drivers for the device. I tried to flash the firmware with the program from Sony again, but now it doesn't recognize the drive as being compatible, so it won't flash it.I was hoping to get some support from Sony, but they informed me that I would have to pay more than I paid for the drive in the first place to get support. So, I hope someone here might have an idea of how I can fix it.

Answer:Is there any way to fix this firmware?

That is why the smarter people here do NOT recommend firmware or BIOS updates lightly. You can end up with a doorstop and no recourse. If the product is still under warranty and doesn't do what is advertised, take it back for a return or replacement with something that does.

Firmware - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia






Quote:
In electronic systems and computing, firmware is a term often used to denote the fixed, usually rather small, programs and/or data structures that internally control various electronic devices. Typical examples of devices containing firmware range from end-user products such as remote controls or calculators, through computer parts and devices like hard disks, keyboards, TFT screens or memory cards, all the way to scientific instrumentation and industrial robotics. Also more complex consumer devices, such as mobile phones, digital cameras, synthesizers, etc., contain firmware to enable the device's basic operation as well as implementing higher-level functions.

Question: Firmware

I recently purchased an nVIDIA 6200AGP8x 350MHz Graphics Card with 512MB For an eight year old Dell Dimension 4600i (P4, 3G HT with a 128 card). As I didn?t think I was getting the full benefit of the new card I checked in BIOS. The maximum it goes to is 256 so I looked the Dell site and saw there were 4 updates, one being video, ok so I downloaded it, and then stopped. I have had a bad experience with firmware (a Plextor drive that refused to work after an update) as a result I am not sure whether to go ahead or not. Ok pathetic but please humour me, do the risks out way the benefits.
Oh, re. the HP on this PC, I noticed it is disabled in BIOS sorry better for a new thread perhaps.
Dave

Answer:Firmware

Now lets see if I understand. You have replaced the the original graphics card with a nVIDIA 6200AGP8x 350MHz Graphics Card.
From the Dell web site it only shows one update for the Bios but it does not state what it was for so should not be used.
Although it does have several driver updates for graphics cards these are not for the new card you have installed and should not be used. Go to the nVidia web site for new updated drivers.
From my memory the bios does not indicate how much memory the graphics card uses. I could be wrong.

Answer:Firmware for an AP

No; I think you'd have to find it on the net. Search for whatever info you have even just its revision number. You can usually make backups of router/AP configurations, of course, but although the firwmare is sometimes saved along with it, it may not accept being ported across and you'd lose the other AP's settings in so doing.

Hello,
Once again I have networking problems... they seem to never end. This time I believe it has to do with my firmware update. My networking was working fine before I updated it. But now that it is updated it does not seem to work; however, I look at my connectivity status and it says that I have a 80-90% connection on the second computer. My internet still runs perfectly fine through my router into my main computer, but the second computer is without lan connection. I've updated the drivers and reset the ip address. I have win2k on second computer and winXP on main. Linksys(BEFW11S4) Router and a Linksys(WMP11) Wireless Network Card.

So I bought this really nice outdoor camera by a company named WANSCAM. The thing works great, for about 2-3 hours, then it stops showing up in my ip camera list, and I can't connect to it. The only thing I can do is recycle the power, then it works perfectly for a few hours. I tried going to the manufacturers site, Chinese of course, for firmware, and there's nothing to be found. I sent an email to their support site, but I'm not holding my breath. The companies name is Shenzhen Qianguan Technologies LTD. Any ideas??
 

Answer:Looking for firmware for my WANSCAM

Hi

Sadly many cameras from suspect branded Chinese makes are prone to faults and you have no recourse as the maker is from a factory city and not one like Canon, Nikon etc who you can find drivers and support from.

All I can suggest is to plug in the camera and then in Device Manager look for a USB device that matches the camera and uninstall it then unplug and replug in the camera and "maybe" Windows will re-install the driver again as sometimes some USB drivers become corrupt.

Question: Trackpad firmware

There is a new trackpad firmware available, anyway it tells me i cannot install that update, see the screenshot. Why? This trackpad is the worst thing i have ever used, its totally useless, not working, doing whatever it wants. I can work only with external keyboard and mouse. Its really testing my nerves, after 10 years with thinkpads this is probably my last thinkpad. Does not worth that money at all.

I have an Olympus Evolt-500 that won't update the firmware. I'm running XP pro with a DSL internet connection. I've talked to every tech support person Olympus has and they don't have a clue what's wrong.

It will recognize the camera and lenses but it will download from 50% to 83% of the firmware update, then a message pops up and says no connection to server and everything shuts off. They had me try the download with no firewall on and using just the modem no router. I've used Olympus Viewer, Olympus Master and Olympus Studio Trial version and they all download about the same amount before they shut down.

I'm open to suggestions at this point.

Any thoughts on why we have not seen an emergence of memory modules that their sole purpose is to house the operating system? I mean for 200-400 bucks you could get memory modules and have them house operating systems like winxp. Wouldn't a read only memory with firmware update capability be a helluva lot faster then a HD? I mean couldn't then operating system reads be sped up to the Nth degree? Wouldn't this also speed up gaming, applications, etc?

Why haven't we started exploring this possibility? I mean instead of getting a CD you would get 1 or 2 sets of memory that you would plug into your mobo? Of course these would be in addition to the ram you currently have on the mobo.

Thoughts?
 

Answer:Firmware Memory for O/S's?

I may be really wrong on this, but I thought the reason why it hasn't happened (aside from cost) is the fact that flash memory doesn't last as long, and would eventually degrade under the read/write actions that would be needed.

There has already been some sites explaining how to get XP running on a flash drive, but given the USB interface limitations, the performance has been horrid at best.

Answer:Qosmio F10 - need DVD firmware

Hi

Firstly the whole Toshiba drivers you will find on the Toshiba website.
But I don?t think that you will find a firmware for this drive because the drive uses the original Microsoft OS drivers.
Furthermore it?s not possible to change the region settings more than 5 times. If you have already changed the region 5 times the last setting is fixed and it?s not possible to change it.

seems that its a pretty nice piece of hardware based on specs but the factory firmware must be hampering it....its brand new and if even two clients get on the connection at once doing minimal things there is noticeable slowdown......

DD-WRT support for the E1 hardware revision seems sketchy but workable....had DD-WRT on the Linksys WRT54G it replaced, it worked ok

I have just noticed a reference where a person needs to update his DVD-RW firmware to a more recent version in order to be able to burn a specific type of disk. I think I am right in thinking that the firmware is burned into the device itself, in this case a DVD writer? Anyway assuming I am right, if you were to download a firmware update in the form of a zip file, when you extract it how would the data know where to go? In other words when you normally extract a zip file you are given the option of installing it to a specific part of your hard drive like your download folder for example. Just out of curiosity, would the firmware data know that it has to go on the DVD-RW EPROM chip? I assume it's an EPROM chip?I have never had the need to do this myself but I am intrigued by the method of how it is actually achieved! Anyone out there who has ever updated their firmware and if so is it an easy thing to do or do you have to be technically minded? I appreciate your help.

Answer:Updating CD/DVD ROM firmware

You will need to download not just the firmware update but also a small program to run it.The update run program is usually also on the manufacturers site.I did this for My BTC DVD burner in my old computer.Rember the old adage."IF IT AINT BROKE DONT TRY AND FIX IT".A failed firware uodate can render the equipment useless.

Question: Firmware Upgrades

How safe is it to upgrade Firmware on my dvd writer (Phillips DVD+-RW DVD8631 version CD21 )?If something goes wrong,can I restore to the previous version of the Firmware?Is there a new version of Firmware available for the above dvd writer?thanks.

Answer:Firmware Upgrades

Unless you absolutely need to update firmware leave your rewriter as it is - you only need one small error and the drive will almost certainly be only fit for the dustbin.However, if you still wish to go ahead, the Philips DVDRW8631 is apparently the same drive as the Benq DW1620.See:click here (see note 5-1-6).Also see:"First the Philips (unzipped) version Gd30( click here ); if this doesn?t work, try the BenQ version B7W9 (unzipped) version ( click here )The general opinion on other forums is that it's not a particularly good rewriter.But a new one, if it all goes wrong, will be less than £20 for one of the latest top brand DVD rewriters from Scan, Dabs etc.

Hi folks!

I have a Sony VAIO computer with a DVR-108 DVD burner installed. The current firmware available is 1.19, but the firmware on my drive is 1.10. For some reason, I am unable to upgrade the firmware using the firmware installer software. Normally I wouldn't worry too much about it, but my drive supports burning at 16X speeds with DVD+R discs, and I am only getting 4X burn speeds with the 16X discs I bought! (and yeah, they are good quality media!)

I actually get 12X speeds with my 8X discs, but am getting 4X speeds with 16X discs! what a mess!

I have done my share of googling to figure out how to flash the firmware, but nothing seems to help - it's a little overly complicated for me! When I run the installer, it tells me that the device is not found. Argh!

does anyone have anything to offer that might help?

thanks in advance!

Answer:firmware reverse??

You typically cannot downgrade a firmware installation. Some installers offer an option to save the original firmware, and can downgrade, but most do not.

In any case, partially burning wouldn't be a firmware issue. Faulty drive, media, or a burning application issue.

Question: Firmware GOOF

I'm using another computer that has this error: It's Windows 7.
I went to download a firmware from a site, but when it came time to Open and Save, it read that Windows can't open the firmware and that it first needs a program. The choices are: use Web Service to select for me, or, select a program from a list of installed programs (there were 14 listed). I think I chose Word, but realized right away that was a mistake as it immediately showed a page lists of letters and numbers, like incription. The problem is it won't let me delete or return to start over at the choices again on this computer. Once I get back to the site and click to open the same firmware download, the same page of letters and numbers pops up. I'm on my computer writing to you (also Windows 7) so I am able to stop just short of making the same mistake twice. Question: how do I erase or delete the word program that I put the firmware in? Is there a way to override it?
What should I have used in the list of choices to add this firmware? By the way, the site has instructions on how to install this firmware for Windows 7, but I did not find it until I had already done the damage.
Any help is very appreciated.
