    A month ago I bought an RVS4000 and upgraded immediately to the newest firmware. After upgrading, the router was unable to connect to the cable modem (many people have described a similar issue). However, I did not have an older firmware version to re-flash.... Can someone email me the old firmware if they have it 1.0.11? If possible, please email it to infinti34@hotmail.com or let me know where to find it. Of course, the linksys website does not have any older firmware versions... I would greatly appreciate it...

    I now have a "brick", I think...

    I know this is "April Fools Day", but this is NO joke.

    I also upgraded firmware to v1.1.19, today 04-01-07
    and now I have a "brick".
    Instructions said: Please reset the router to factory default after upgrading the firmware and configure the router from scratch.
    After upgrade I logged on to the router and clicked "reset to factory default".
    That's when it "bricked". Pwr and Diag leds flash back and fourth.

    I would guess linksys tech support have now realised there is no going back if you have upgraded to v1.1.09.

    I would suggest contacting Linksys tech support for an RMA so they can replace the unit, unless they have a firmware fix available

    "reset to factory default" only rewrite the config area. So very stranger your router crashed.... Did you poweroff during the reboot process?

    found the same problems after upgrading the firmware on 2 rvs4000s. after the upgrade restore factory defaults using the Restore feature in the admin tab. You have to start from scratch but you have a working router at that point
