Re: New Firmware Version: V1.0.0.32

Yes, the only sign of the new version is the 'New firmware, would you like to upgrade' prompt appearing in the router web admin console.

I decided to click on it and after what limited testing I have done the basics seem to work okay for me. It always takes a long time to find the internet connection after a restart, and it did again, but that was the only problem I had.

It would be nice to get some release notes.

New Features and Enhancements:

Fixed - For 2.4G wireless connection, wireless client might be disconnected easily in heavy/noisy traffic environment.

For anyone that has updated this firmware. Did it retrieve your backup configuration files successfully? Just wondering if this is a 3 minute update, or a 30 minute update Smiley Happy

Re: New Firmware Version: V1.0.0.32

I have applied the new firmware and although I backed up my configuration before upgrade, I didn't need to restore it, it kept my settings after the upgrade, I went from .24 to .32.

This update has certainly improved the USB write speed, earlier I was getting around 3.5 MB/Sec, now I am getting around 7.70 MB/Sec.

Re: New Firmware Version: V1.0.0.32

Saving and reloading settings, or a live update is not the best way to update a router or any firmware device. This doesn't mean it can't be done, instead it means that it shouldn't be done. Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. Smiley Happy
