  • SwyxDECT 800

[ Summary | Information | Links ]


This article describes the firmware upgrade via the tool "gwload" and offers the relevant download link.


Usually SwyxDect 800 firmware upgrades are done with a standard browser using the HTTP protocol. This requires a functional firmware on the SwyxDect 800 Base Station. But in case the firmware is broken to any reason, the HTTP upload may not be possible anymore. However, even if the firmware is broken or not present the SwyxDect 800 still runs the boot code. In this case a new firmware can be loaded to SwyxDect 800 by using the tool “gwload”.

To download “gwload” use the following link and read the documentation of “gwload” to ensure the proper operation.


gwload /setip /i <ipadress> /gwtype 1201 /prot <..path/firmwarefilename> /go
