I Accidentally installed the firmware of the hardware version 3 and my hardware version is 2  now I want to go back to the old version and it shows the following message: error: FAIL TO UPDATE! The uploaded file was not accepted by the router.

Hi,

 

The firmware need macth its hardware version, otherwise it may ruin the device itself. Meanwhile, sorry to tell you that it is against the warranty. 

 

If the current router works fine with the firmware for V3, do not flash it back to V2; and cause the error message pops up, seems that there is no method to do so.

 

You can run the router for a while and test whether it works fine. 

 

Have a nice day.
