STEPS TO RE-FLASH THE DSL-302G WITH GENERIC FIRMWARE.
Please read these instructions prior to launching the upgrade software.
Please make sure the modem is connected to the PC before running the application file. It will need to be connected via Ethernet cable (network cable). Please note that the Upgrade Utility will not work via USB connection. Do not upgrade your modem via Wireless connection, this may damage your modem. Please do not power off the modem during the upgrade.
Note that the current modem's settings will be lost, the modem will be reset to factory defaults. The Upgrade Utility will re-flash the modem with generic firmware ver.2.01B30. You will then need to load the latest available firmware.
Step 1. Download the latest available firmware for your modem from our WEB site:
Save the firmware ("TEImage.bin") file on your computer (e.g. under "My Documents"). Do NOT try to run or open the .bin or .tfp firmware file. It will not work. You will need to load the file through the modem's interface.
Download the Upgrade Utility:
Step 2. Make sure that your modem is connected to your computer via a Network Cable (USB connection can not be used). Launch the Firmware Update Utility ("DSL-302G_EthUpgrade.exe"). Wait until the firmware re-flash is completed.
Step 3. Open your Internet browser (Internet Explorer), enter the IP address of your modem in the address bar (10.1.1.1) and press Enter.
Step 4. Enter username (admin) and password (admin), which is the default password. Click OK to enter the web configuration for the modem.
Step 5. Click on the Admin link in the menu on the left and then the Image Upgrade. Click on the Browse button and browse to the .bin file you downloaded in Step 1. Highlight the file by clicking on it once and click Open. Click Update. It will take a few seconds for the upgrade to complete.
Step 6. After the modem reboots, close your web browser and reopen it. Enter 10.1.1.1 to reconnect with the web configuration. Enter username admin and password admin. Click OK. The firmware upgrade is now complete.
Step 7. If you have problems with the web configuration at this point, unplug the power to the modem, wait 10 seconds, and plug back in. Repeat Step 6. If this did not help, perform a hard reset on the modem. To perform a hard reset, use a paperclip and press the reset button on the back of the unit THREE times (with approximately half a second interval). The lights will blink, and then stabilize. Repeat Step 6.
