Linksys srw2048 unable to update firmware via xmodem (using hyperterm)

I have three srw2048 series switches at my new job. One updated fine via the web interface the other two (after I found a windows machine to use the web interface) looked as though they were uploading the new file but after a reboot I was still on the old verison. So I broke out the console cable. What I have done is to Download Software to the switch (option 1) this kicks me over into xmodem. Once I am in xmodem I choose to send a file (the latest rom) using the 1K Xmodem protocol it immediately gives me retries and errors until it reaches a threshold that ends the session. During this whole process zero k is transferred.

Boot Version

Software Version

Hardware Version 00.03.10

The only thing I can think is that I must need older files to upgrade to an intermediary version before loading the latest 1.22 rom file.

You might want to pose this question in the Linksys forums at

Also, try another terminal program like Teraterm Pro.  Maybe it needs "classic" xmodem?
