Question

How do I manually re-flash my G200 Router? 

Environment

  • Open Mesh G200 Router

Answer

Re-flashing the router's firmware is both a convenient method to prepare a new unit for installation and a reliable troubleshooting step in resolving problem states.

Procedure

  1. For Windows machines, download and install WinPCap (external link). WinPCap is not required if using Linux.
  2. Download the [1.3.0] flash utility for Windows or Linux.
  3. Connect the machine with the flash utility to the router's WAN port.
  4. Open a Windows Command Prompt window and move the utility to the flash utilities directory.
  5. Run the utility with no options specified to see a list of PC network interfaces.
  6. Rerun the utility, specifying the number of your Ethernet interface.
  7. If the flash utility does not do anything right away, power cycle the router.

Once the router comes back up after a re-flash, its LED should flash yellow and ask to be re-paired in CloudTrax as the final step in the re-flash process.

Note: The message, "is of type 'redboot' that we have no image for" is common and can be ignored.
