DGN2000 Firmware Update Failure (Power LED flashes Red and Green)

What a fun night. Having tried updating my routers’ firmware and the update fail, I called NETGEAR who were less than helpful with their “We can’t do anything because it’s not under warranty” response.

Hopefully this may help someone else.

Scenario:

After Upgrading the firmware via wireless the routers’ power light constantly flashes red and green.

Solution:

  1. Download the initial release firmware for your region: http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d103335.asp
  2. Connect your router via Ethernet.
  3. Restart your router.
  4. Go to: http://www.routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm (this is your router and is a local connection)
  5. Upload the firmware, and
  6. Follow On-screen instructions.

Your old settings should still remain.
You can now update to the latest firmware.
