What's the order of the installation, I did the 03_middle one first and now my router can't find the extender.  I get a power light on and the 2 down arrows are green but the up arrows are not lit.

If you connect the extender to the base via LAN cable, can you access it's UI via IP address by chance?

I had it plugged in via LAN cable and ran the setup wizard and it couldn't find the extender, I am trying a couple of different things now and will let you know.

OK, I''ve notified D-Link about this. I think they forgot to include the upgrade steps.  ::)

I hard wired it to the router after doing a couple of resets so that it would get an IP.  Went in that way and installed the b11 version.  I think the issue is that during the 03_middle is restarted the extender too soon in the process.  I don't really use the extender just wanted to update to keep it fresh.  Will play some more and let you know.

Yeah, I think the 03_middle hosed it, I was able to get the setup wizard to work when hard wired, but I still don't have the two uplink lights.  With the new b11 version, I can't go back to a lower version either.  I was NOT hardwired when I did the 03_middle upgrade, so maybe you will want to let people know that they may want to do both upgrades while wired to router.

Thanks Dave for the feedback. I will notify them to add instructions. If the middle firmware disconnects it from the router this will cause some issues.

Were you able to get your extender running again or is it hosed?  ???

Hopefully GreenBay can get some information. Hope the extender isn't bricked. If it is, I'm sure he can work with you to get it replaced.  ::)

Thought of something, might see if the extender has a recovery mode. Not sure if it does like the router does. Might check on this.

I can connect to it as long as its wired.  Did a factory reset on it and then ran the setup wizard but I don't thinks its retaining the settings as the password to log into the extender does not change with the wizard setup settings.

Tried to go back to the older firmware that is on support site but it won't let me downgrade.

The "middle" firmware added encryption to the firmware so you cannot downgrade. I need to ask what (or if) the emergency/crash recovery procedure is for the extender.
