    Firmware upgrade from WAN?

    Is it possible to safely upgrade a WL500g from WAN?

    I've tried this a few times on lower firmware versions, but they all failed. Have anyone made this work?

    Hi

    It´s not recomendet, like using wlan for this is not aswell, but "should" be possible. Main problem is connection loss while the firmware image is loaded up.
    Sorry but i cant try it, you have to do it yourself.

    I did it several time, without any problem. But you should use a wired connection, this is recommended!

    But is there any way to to this without using the web interface?
    Can this be done from telnet or ftp from WAN?

    You can do it by direktly writing the firmware image to the mtd flash partition from a shell like ssh or telnet, but this is even less recommended since you can do easily something wrong that bricks your router.
