3Com® Router Firmware
Firmware is embedded software inside a router. 3Com wired and wireless routers have separate software/firmware which is inbuilt in the package when you buy router. The firmware implements a portion of the network protocols, security mechanisms and administrative capabilities of the hardware device. Firmware is installed in the router at the time of manufacturing the router. Updating a router's firmware can increase its performance, security and reliability depending on the nature of the enhancements provided. Issues might occur with the router firmware. Some of the issues with the router firmware are outdated firmware, router not turning ON and wrong username/password for accessing the router.
- Outdated firmware
- Wrong username/password
You need to download firmware from 3Com website. There might arise issues while accessing the router settings if you have outdated firmware. On the address bar, in order to update the router, you need to select the manufacture website and select the suitable update that is compatible with your router. You need to continue with the firmware update for updating the router. After update is over, you will get a confirmation message.
You need to check the router if it is ‘ON’ or not. This might be easy as you need to look for the indicator in the router. While updating the router firmware, make sure that you have proper power back up. You might use an uninterrupted Power supply. If supply is lost in between firmware update, it might damage the router. In this case, try to reset the router.
Username and password need to be entered properly for the updating the router firmware. If the wrong username and password is entered, you might not be able to access the settings of the router. 3Com routers are accessed through particular administrative account, router manufacturers set a default username and default password for this account at the factory. For changing this default password, you need to log in to the router's administrative mode.
