i tried to update my router's firmware but i kept getting a 'connection timed out' while it was updating. during this time the internet was still working though. after a couple of times i gave up and restarted my internet, but i kept getting a limited or no connection signal. i reset my router, check all the cables, and tried to re-setup my router, but i got a similar error. i can only use the internet connecting straight to the cable modem. any ideas?

Did you try upgrading the firmware wired or wirelessly?

Hi,

I also have the same problem. What did you do to solve this? I am just curious because when I called TECH SUPPORT they told me I had to cell Bellsouth my ISP that they had to release my Breach Mode on the modem.

Thanks.
