Hi Guys,

A few months ago i uploaded some new firmware to my wansview-nc541, but after that i keeps restarting.

Today i found this forum, with a lot of information. I looked up my ftdi board, and hooked it up to the camera. I was able to dump the firmware with the FoscamCloneRecovery.exe tool.

After that i thought to upload new firmware with telnet command "fx 7 0x7f020000 0x8000 -acxz" after selecting, i forgot to change the protocol to xmodem. After this mistake i could not get out of the download with ctrl+x option, and rebooted the camera.

After this i am not able to connect to the cam anymore. The serial connection is correct, but hyperterminal display's nothing anymore.

Can this be fixed somehow?

hmmm did the same several times but never got that problem. After reboot the state of the camera was the same as before.
