      Sagem F@ST2504 revert back to 1.5???

      Hi

      I updated my Sagem F@ST2504 router to 1.9 yesterday - unintentionally as I was trying to renew my IP address.

      Since then my wireless connection has died, constantly dropping out with poor signal strength. It was working fine until the upgraded firmware yesterday afternoon.

      Is there anyway to revert back to 1.5, I would need the firmware file but I have no idea where to find it.

      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Thanks

      Mark

      Have a look what version is on the CD that came with the router?

      Or you could try changing the wireless channel if at 6 to 11 or similar.

      Have you checked that you channel settings didn't get reset when you upgraded the firmware?

      Re: Sagem F@ST2504 revert back to 1.5???

      I have experienced exactly the same problem as the original poster. I have just called Sky technical support who poo-pooed the fact that I had tried to seek help by consulting a forum! I told them that it just served to show that at least I'm not the only customer to be experiencing dropped connections since the 1.9 upgrade.

      The solution as the two other contributors have advised is to change the channel number from Auto to 11.

      To access your Sagem router, perform these steps:

      1) Open browser
      2) Type in address bar: 192.168.0.1
      3) A dialog box will appear. Enter username/password (default is admin/sky)
      4) Click the SETUP link
      5) In the Channel drop-down list, select 11
      5) Scroll down the page and select 'Apply'

      Hope this cures the problem.

      What Sky doesn't appear to realise is that by failing to publish this information on their website, people like myself and the poster waste hours fa**ying about with our computers wondering what the devil is wrong.

      change the channel number from Auto to 11.
      This not necessarily correct. Different situations require different channels. Returning it to the channel it was originally working on should fix it.

      I don't think there's any point trying to revert the firmware anyway as it'll just upgrade to 1.9 again. My router died during the firmware upgrade to 1.9, so had to go back to an earlier one (1.1). But then this just upgraded again to 1.9 automatically
