Re: New Firmware 1.0.0.88

ttchief is correct, there is a new firmware v1.0.088 available for online upgrade for the WNDR4000 router. I could not find any info about it on Netgear's website. I think I will hold off on an upgrade till there is more info available. I am having issues with a USB device and ReadyDLNA Media server that hopefully will be addressed at some point :eek: :rolleyes:

Re: New Firmware 1.0.0.88

Hi, I have upgraded to the latest 1.0.0.88 firmware. Looks great with new web ui. However, I tried to install the LPC but the management utility keeps saying my firmware does not support it and asked me to reboot it. I tried many times, but still it said the same thing.
Anyone with same problem or managed to install LPC?
Thank you and Happy New Year 2012!

Hi,

Is there an image of the new UI?
Are there new features added and are the disconnect problems solved?

Updated to new version, Internet disconnected after 3 minutes. A new record! :'(

Will do a factory reset and set all the settings again and test again.

This undocumented firmware just showed up as available on my 750. I wouldn't have noticed but all the gear on my network lost its connection a couple hours ago despite very good signal strength or being wired. I'd love to know what's going on.,

Re: New Firmware 1.0.0.88

Someone noted a new GUI - all I see is the old GUI but messed up.

Did a reset to factory defaults and uploaded my config file again.
Will let you guys know if it fixes some of my issues with the Internet connection.

Like the look and feel of the new GUI.

Re: New Firmware 1.0.0.88

I think I'll wait until some of you folks report back on this release. I hate it when there is no documentation accompanying a release. I'd like to know if the fixes contained within are worth the risk of actually istalling them.

A new GUI wouldn't be high on my list of a risk/reward ratio.

Re: New Firmware 1.0.0.88

The new gui did eventually show up on my 750. Joy. I'd just gotten used to the old one. The new one is 'cute'. Actually, it is really awful. It makes you scroll within the page to see all the content of a page, using very little of the available screen space. I went to print out my list of preset DHCP addresses; if I use the wrong browser I only get part of it. I select the range, then print selection. Works in Chrome, not in IE (IE loses the last row or two). The new GUI is 'pretty' but adds nothing to functionality. In the meantime this router that I've only had a few days has already had one meltdown, disconnecting all the wireless connections for no obvious reason.

Though when it does work, it does provide a noticably stronger signal then my WRT610N. And one crash in 3 days is better then one per day. But I still have not removed the wires from my Living Room floor.

Re: New Firmware 1.0.0.88

The idea behind this horrible GUI redesign seems to be that computers are now obsolete and everyone is going to be managing their devices from smartphones and tablets. I'm not sure how else you would explain all the scroll bars everywhere and the fact that they've miniaturized the entire thing.

If there was any performance gain from this firmware to be had I wish they would document it. As of now though I'm moving back to .82 if the only "improvement" in 88 is this terrible GUI.

Hello, NETGEAR. This is your customer talking. "Pretty" is not for network appliances. Thanks.

Re: New Firmware 1.0.0.88

This GUI is awful. Reminds me of what MS thought it would force on us in Win 8; like you said, it looks like it belongs on a stupid (oops smart) phone with a 4 inch screen. Since most of us manage our networks on a 14 to 23 inch screen, this wastes most of our screen space. Beyond that, it is a lot harder to find things since everything is now at least a level below what you used to see listed on screen. And it is really strange that Netgear won't tell us what else changed.

Re: New Firmware 1.0.0.88

Having the same kinds of problems with this firmware as previously reported here. WAN connection (PPPoE) is unstable, and the wired Gb LAN connection light changes from green to amber a few minutes after a router reboot. Shortly after that, machines on the 2.4G WLAN lose connection with machines on the wired LAN, and machines on the wired LAN can't get valid IP addresses via DHCP.

Would be grateful for any advice.

Re: New Firmware 1.0.0.88

Something confusing here...
I bought a WNDR4000 for a couple of days ago. The firmware is V1.0.0.88_9.1.77.

On the support page for WNDR 4000 http://support.netgear.com/app/products/model/a_id/18164
is the latest FW Firmware Version 1.0.0.82.

How come that you guys, can find a later version but not I ??
Why do my router have a later version of the FW than is available on Netgears support pages??
:confused:

Re: New Firmware 1.0.0.88

We don't know what Netgear is up to but the N750's find the new firmware available to DL on their own even though you don't see it on the Netgear site, let alone an explanation of the new version. The new version creates a new GUI that looks like it is meant to be used on a 4 inch smart phone screen and which can't really take advantage of a larger screen. Huge step backwards in usability, maybe Netgear thought Windows 8 was smart too. As far as people have said so far here, no known bug fixes though some apparently needed.
