Re: WNDR3800 Firmware Update v1.0.0.40

I have been running v1.0.0.40 firmware now for days now w/ no drops or issues on 2.4GHZ or 5 GHz bands that others have mentioned. However, I must say that I do not use any of the USB feature(s) of the router, so I cannot speak to any issues with ReadyShare/ReadyCloud/ReadyPrint.

I have the new “Enable 20/40 MHz Coexistence” turned off and ACS Sensitivity (Clear Channel Selector) turned to “Low” as I always have.

I am experiencing the freezes on the wifi side also. I downgraded to .38 and will monitor this forum for any bug fixes.

Re: WNDR3800 Firmware Update v1.0.0.40

I also upgraded to v 1.0.0.40 and have been experiencing intermittent drops / freeze ups. I downgraded back to 1.0.0.38 for a time and the drops stopped, but returned when I upgraded to 1.0.0.40 again. I do have a USB drive attached, so I may try disconnecting that to see of the problem is resolved.

I also MISTAKENLY updated to .40 and my wifi has been dropping like it was back at .32.

So I guess I am downgrading....seeing that it seems to be a legit .40 problem.

Same problem here.. Wireless and .40 is not a good thing...

Is .38 the only fix?

At this point downgrade to .38 is your best option. Who knows how long it will take Netgear to fix it.

Mine has worked fine since downgrading.

I disconnected the USB drive and rebooted today and had no drops / freeze ups all day. Will keep monitoring it, but a USB conflict might be the bug.

Could be for you.

I don't have USB Storage attached to mine. I have a Ethernet NAS.

Good Luck.
