As suggested in the article below, try using an ethernet cord instead of WiFi, otherwise the firmware is available on Denon's website.

So after posting I was happy with my X6400H and won't consider upgrading this year, it lost network connectivity.

A couple of days ago, can't be exact, I found the AVR reporting Update Complete.  I was confused as I thought I did not have it set to firmware auto-update.  I didn't think anything more of it at the time.

Today I decided to use Air Play from my iPhone to play music to the AVR.  Apple Music did not list the AVR.  I brought up the Denon App on my iPad and it did not see the AVR.

I went into Network settings and found it defaulted to WiFi which I have never configured on the AVR.  I tried to change to Ethernet but it reported that I need to connect a LAN cable.

I went back to try WiFi and it could not find my network or any of my neighbors' networks.

I checked the DHCP setting and it was turned off.  If I turned it ON, exited, and returned, it was back to Off.

I decided to try a Network reset.  It got up to and became stuck on Assigning Network.  Now any restart resulted in the stuck Assigning Network. 

I did not see any option of microprocessor reset so decided I had to do a full factory setting reset.

Once that completed, I once again had network connectivity. 

I then let it update the firmware.  It appeared to complete, but then it again reported stuck at Assigning Network.

So it looks like I will have to restore to factory settings and stay at that level of firmware for now.

Update:  I tried again.  This time; restore to factory settings and immediately allow a firmware update to be downloaded and installed.  The update completed successfully and there is network connectivity.

But in my first attempt that failed, I loaded saved settings from a USB drive before attempting the firmware update that failed in Assigning Network.

This time I did not load saved settings but immediately updated firmware.  Now an attempt to load settings from the USB reports invalid or corrupt file.

So I wonder if there is some settings incompatibility that occurs with the latest firmware?

So now I have to complete the setup and do an Audyssey calibration.   I considered going back to factory firmware but then I would lose Auro-3D.

That sucks Claw, but at least you got it fixed and saved some $$$ on ordering new gear. Hopefully the calibration goes smoothly.

I have run Audyssey so many times over the years that I know exactly where to position the microphone for the 8 locations to get the result I am looking for.

Sounding great again.  7.2.4 for Atmos movies and 5.2.4 for music using Auro-3D.

Last but not least, I turned off Firmware Auto-Update.

Auro 3D was released on the X6400H from the factory.
