My MiFi 2200 will not download and install the latest firmware updates. I do the usual update method of:
1. Open the Browser Interface, by typing http://192.168.1.1 into the address window of your web browser
2. Type the administrative password (admin) into the login box in the upper right corner
3. Select Login
4. From the Main Menu Bar, select WWAN
5. Select Configuration
6. Select Update Firmware
I then see a popup window with a green progress bar. After a few minites I am given a message to reset the modem. Once I powercycle the modem and check the firmware, I see that it is still on 133 and in the logs, I see that the update failed to download.
I've tried this over a few days and still I can't download this update. What is going on with the Sprint network, in that I can't download this update?
sometimes firmware may not update wirelessly. It's unfortunate but does happen. have you tried resetting the MIFI?
HARD RESET - Using the Device Buttons:
If that still fails to update the firmware, a Sprint Repair Center can update the firmware for you.
Successfully did what you suggested, but it still did not work. After hard reset of the modem, logging back into the device and spending an hour resetting all my previous configuration values, I attempted to download the new firmware.
1st attempt: I got an error message, after the progress bar appeared, stating that the firmware failed to download.
2nd attempt: I got a message stating that there was no new firmware available.
All attempts thereafter keep displaying the message that there is no new firmware to download. At this stage the modem is still working with the 133 firmware, so I'm not going to continue pursuing an update. Besides, I hope to either upgrade to a 4G device (unlikely with the sucky Sprint 4G coverage ) or switch to Virgin Broadband 3G (likely, as I can get the same service $20 cheaper without the ridiculous 5Gb/month cap )
