Netgear prosafe FSM7328s switch with "bad Magic Number" prompt
Posted on 2011-04-20
I have a Netgear Prosafe FSM7328s switch that seems to ahve corrupted during a firmware update (to 220.127.116.11).
The firmware update was done from within the web interface, but once the file had uploaded the switch locked up and had to be rebooted by removing the power cable. The PWR light flickers orange, and if you have the serial cable plugged in the console states Bad Magic Number and the switch will not boot.
Does anyone know how to re-load from the firmware from this state to get the switch up and running again?
