Hi,

Hopefully somebody can help.

I have a Linksys 32X router and was using firmware 39884. I read somebody stated firmware 37582 was the fastest wifi so I decided to try it and loaded the firmware.

After loading and rebooting I could no longer get access to my router. It kept asking for my network security key. Before I was using WPA2, did it switch to WEP.

Every time I typed in my password it would not accept it. Is the WEP password different then WPA2?

If so, is there a default WEP password?

Is there anyway I can switch back to my old firmware?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Looks like you need to reset the settings back to default by pressing the reset button for 10 secs then release.
Use a wired connection to connect to 192.168.1.1 after it reboots.
