All of you using the LINKSYS BEFSR41 Routers.

DO NOT FIRMWARE UPDATE TO THE LATEST FIRMWARE VERSION 1.46.2

IF YOU DO UPDATE TO THAT ROUTER FIRMWARE VERSION YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO STAY CONNECTED TO ANY "STEAM NETWORKED GAME"

THIS IS NO JOKE GUYS.

If you have updated to the latest firmware version of 1.46.2 you can fix the problem by RE-DOING the firmware update back to firmware version 1.45.7 or 1.45.11

You will not be able to find those older firmware versions at LINKSYS I had to call the tech department and have them Email me firmware versions 1.45.7 and 1.45.11

As yet I have not got the firmware fixed!!

I am posting this to save the rest of you that have the BEFSR41 routers from grief.

I will post back if the reverse firmware update works and the Steam Network allows me to stay connected.


WELL PHIAL that was the "or something else." <--- Bit I mentioned int he other post!!

Yep Risked it and it bit me in the @ss!!

OK SOLUTION!!

If you did a BEFSR41 version 2 Router update to Firmware version 1.46.2 and can no longer game on the STEAM Network.

You can Reverse the firmware update to the original 1.45.7 version.

If anyone needs this .BIN file to upgrade your router back to a usable state simply PM me and I will email you the 1.45.7 file.

Firmware version 1.45.11 dose not function for Steam either.

After four years I doubt you will receive an answer.
