Thread: Broken wl500g Premium

    Arrow Broken wl500g Premium

    Hi, I have a WL500G Premium and I had Olegs firmware on there. It was working great, but I decided I wanted to original Asus firmware. I went to the Asus site and downloaded the firmware for the WL500Gp and uploaded it to the router using the ASUS Firmware Restoration tool (I held the reset button down and turned the router on. The power led was blinking slowly, and I pressed upload on the utility.) The utility found the WL500G and uploaded the firmware, then did its Auto System Recovery. After it finished, I waited a minute and turned the router off, then turned it back on. I am conected to it using an ethernet cable, and it wont assign an IP address to me. It is also not showing up on my Wireless Network list.

    Any ideas?

    Try again, but wait for ten minutes after it says "finished". The recovery is incomplete, it takes much longer, than utility thinks...

    Thanks for the quick reply Oleg. I did what you said, but the utility never actually says "Finished". Its just blank in the status box. I still haven't reset the router. The power led and Port 1 LED are solid (Port 1 LED flashes every once in a while). Should I reset it or keep waiting?

    By the way, I'm trying to restore to WL500gp_1.9.6.9_TW.trx. I tried restoring to as well.

    Ok...I just unplugged it, and plugged it back in, pressed the EZ setup button, and everything seems to be working now! :-)

    Thanks Oleg!

    Unplugging and pushing either the EZ setup or reset button seems to do wonders for a lot problems.
