Error updating device linksys
Apparently these i OS devices like to maintain the same IP address and will attempt to force themselves onto the same IP that they had previously been assigned, which can lead to the error message.
1: The easiest solution is to just reset the router, but that can be a pain depending on your access to the router itself.
See Hardware vs Software vs Firmware: What's the Difference? Devices that you might think of as strictly hardware such as optical drives, a network card, a router, a camera, or a scanner all have software that is programmed into a special memory contained in the hardware itself.
Manufacturers of CD, DVD, and BD drives often release regular firmware updates to keep their hardware compatible with new media.
This is generally a section that has an button that lets you select the firmware you've downloaded.
It's important to review the device's user manual before updating the firmware, just to make sure that the steps you're taking are correct and that you've read all the warnings.
It's unlikely that the device is set up in a way where you have to manually download the firmware and then manually apply it.
That would make it much too hard for the average user to update the firmware, especially if the device needs firmware updates often.i OS devices like i Phones and i Pads also occasionally get firmware updates.
One of the first things the Blu-ray drive manufacturer would probably suggest is to update the firmware on the drive.
2: If resetting the router is a no go, you can also try torenew your DHCP lease in Mac OS X either through the command line (as the linked article shows) or through the Network settings System Preference panels as described here.
3: The other option is to manually set an IP address to a static IP and have the IP range be far enough apart so that the devices do not conflict. I assume this is just a bug with how i OS interacts with certain routers DHCP management, it happen to Apple’s own Airport too so perhaps that will spur a patch sooner than later, but by no means is this limited to Apple routers, and you can encounter it on any wi-fi network (and even some wired networks too).
Others may involve copying the firmware to a portable drive and then loading it onto the device manually.
For example, you might be able to update the firmware on a gaming console by just accepting any prompts to update the software.
It's impossible to give a blanket answer for how to install firmware on all devices because not all devices are the same.
