    I installed v23 (11/24/05) a long time ago and would like to upgrade to v23sp1 but the upgrade link is not working on my box (the backup link doesn't work either). This may be a dumb question, but is this a safety feature or did my install not work properly?

    Are you accessing the GUI via https and the links are greyed out? You must flash using an http connection... some sort of "safety" feature.

    - reset button for ~30 sec

    - flash "generic" .bin via GUI and wait a few minutes for the update to complete

    - reset button for ~30 sec

    Make sure when doing an update from the GUI, to use the "generic" versions. Device specific files contain headers necessary for TFTP only.

    I had the same problem. I would click upgrade and a blank page would load. I switched to Internet Explorer and it worked the first time. I did have to do a hard reset after the upgrade to login though
