NOTE: Instead of using SolarWinds TFTP server i used TFTPd32(http://tftpd32.jounin.net/)
Part 1: Upgrade the Boot Loader Commands:
- Connect to the WG302 console port via MS Hyper terminal with these settings:
- Bits per second: 9600
- Data bits: 8
- Parity: None
- Stop bits: 1
- Flow control: None
Copy patch.txt from the zip file into a working file folder on your PC.
Connect the access point to your PC’s communication port with an RS232 cable.
After powering on the access point, immediately press CTRL-C (CTRL and C keys at the same time). The RedBoot> prompt displays in HyperTerm. Here's an example of what this sequence might look like:
+Ethernet eth0: MAC address 00:09:5b:74:f3:c5
IP: 192.168.0.35/255.255.255.0, Gateway: 0.0.0.0

Continue to Part 2 to upgrade the firmware.
Part 2: To Upgrade the Firmware Using TFTP
- Configure the IP address of your PC to 192.168.0.36. 2. If you do not have a TFTP server on your PC, install one now. (These are available, free, from such places as Solarwinds. You may download the software from http://support.solarwinds.net/updates/New-customerFree.) 3. Copy the WG302 firmware image: wg302v41_8.rmt into the TFTP Root directory, such as c:TFTP-Root. 4. Rename the image to wg302.rmt. (If your TFTP server gives an error "ixp425.rmt not found" then you have a beta unit. For beta units rename "wg302.rmt" to ixp425.rmt.) 5. Connect your PC and the WG302 access point directly with a CAT5 Ethernet cable. 6. Start the TFTP server. (An example, showing Solarwinds start-up window, appears below.)
Disconnect the power cord from access point.
Press and hold the reset button on access point. Plug in the power while holding the reset button.
