because I opened the ticket and I’m still waiting for reply, I decided to figure out, since I had the firmware version 5.3.12 still in the firmware partition 1, I changed to boot from that version and then it let me upgrade up to the 5.4.9 version, the release note mention something about that, but I was kind confused by the use of the word UPGRADE rather than DOWNGRADE (we going to an older version right?), I lost partially the configuration after reboot, but fortunately before a firmware upgrade PEPLINK reminds you to backup the configuration before, I did that, then I restored it and now everything work exactly as it was, as this issue was solved please you can go ahead and close the ticket #735347 for me.

Thank you very much
