Hi, I have been gifted an 'old' RUT950 which I want to setup for use in my RV. What would be the latest Bootloader / Firmware versions that I can load without bricking the Router?  If I click the "Check for New FW" in the Web UI, it returns "error" as shown in the attached screenshot.

Unit details are as follows;  

Model - RUT950 1010M0.  Batch No. 0002.  HW rev 0202   Serial No. 05158545

FW -  RUT9XX_T_00.00.932    Build date. 2015-02-12    Kernal Version. 3.10.36

Many thanks

Hello,

That is a really old device.

You will need to start by updating the bootloader. I will send you the bootloader file. 

Below are detailed step-by-step instructions how to upgrade router's bootloader:

  • First of all please set static IP address on your network interface (e.g. 192.168.1.10)
  • Use private/incognito Web browsers window with cleared/disabled cache
  • Power on the device while holding reset button. Flashing all 4 Ethernet LEDs indicates that bootloader’s webserver has started.
  • Access router via web browser http://192.168.1.1/uboot.html
  • Upload new bootloader's fw "uboot_for_tlt_rut9xx_3.0.1_webui".
  • Wait few minutes. Routers LEDs should stop flashing. Only LED with LAN cable connected to that port should be active.
Next you will need to update the router's firmware:
In a similar way, you will need to access the bootloader menu, however, this time, instead of http://192.168.1.1/uboot.html, the URL you will need to use is 192.168.1.1/index.htm. Try uploading the latest legacy firmware image, which can be downloaded from here

Best regards,
