Re: WNDR3800 Firmware Update v1.0.0.44

Hi there, since I did this update, my wireless freezes. My devices can connect to the router but they don't receive any data. I have restarted the router to get it going again.

Can you please look into this.

Thanks

Since I installed this update, my wireless has stopped twice. My devices are connected to the router wifi but there no data exchange. I restarted the router to get it going.

Can you please check this? Thanks

Re: WNDR3800 Firmware Update v1.0.0.44

After I installed this update, my wireless networks went down.

Is there any way to roll back this firmware update or at least to set the router to defaults?

Re: WNDR3800 Firmware Update v1.0.0.44

It seems that this version has fixed my other problems but it broke my DLNA + network drive capabilities eventhough the description says "Fixed the issue that router can't support 3TB USB disk well in DLNA function and ReadySHARE FTP protocol."

I have a Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Drive - 3TB which use to work fine before on .38 but now is broken. Drive works fine when connected directly to a computer but when attached to the router, and accessed via \\readyshare, it spins and spins until the router either restarts. Can this be fixed back to the way it was in the next version.

Re: WNDR3800 Firmware Update v1.0.0.44

To be fair, after my experiences with the DGND3700, I wouldn't recommend either routers for hosting a drive on a permanent basis.

I have a pair of Netgear ReadyNAS unit and having set them up, they are far better at supporting both DLNA and FTP services.

I appreciate the cost differences. I found that each time a router reboots, it has to rescan the hard drive in order to rebuild the DLNA database. With large drives this process can literally take hours. With a proper ReadyNAS a reboot doesn't take anything near as long.

You can also set up specific accounts for accessing the NAS via FTP. This is truly essential if you wish to provide access for a friend or relative as you can decide just how much access to provide (i.e. read only, exclude some folders).

The newest units can house drives up to 4TB too, although these are more than double the cost of the 3TB drives.

Re: WNDR3800 Firmware Update v1.0.0.44

Just downloaded this firmware update, and now I cannot see the 5g network as an option on various devices. The ones that had already been connected still show 5g as an option and connect. New devices do not show 5g as an option, just 2.4. Should I do a rollback? Or did I set it up incorrectly. Thanks, Laura:confused:

Hello Laura and welcome to the forum.

Without knowing anything about the devices which are not seeing the router's 5GHz signal it would be foolish to say if all was well or not.

Not every WiFi device has access to the 5GHz channels. To determine if they should or not you should check their technical specifications and see if the WiFi adaptor supports WiFi a.

If they do, then try changing the channel to 36 or 44. Both these channels should be found by most 5GHz WiFi adaptors.

I too had noticed this. .38 also had access to the DFS channels too.

Me too. After the .44 upgrade my quality bars dropped to 2 sometimes 3 and the on/off light is now inop. Using Genie, the QUALITY is GOOD for a while then inexplicably shuts off and a restore brings it all back again. Don't these idiots check this stuff out before they cause us all a bunch of grief??

Perhaps someone else can answer this better. I have never used Jumbo Frames. I have a variety of kit on my network and much of it I suspect would not support this and it could cause issues, so I have left it alone.

Re: WNDR3800 Firmware Update v1.0.0.44

Is very very sad to see those changes in a almost perfect router... i worked on this on the pre-release beta and it was Jumbo Frame and DFS enabled. I'm going to sell this and move on something different Smiley Sad

Re: WNDR3800 Firmware Update v1.0.0.44

Now that this product is "EOL'ed" and we should expect no more firmware updates ....

Whats the final verdict on 1.0.0.44? Should I upgrade from 1.0.038, which has been trouble-free for me.

Any security holes in .38 that necessitates .44?

Re: WNDR3800 Firmware Update v1.0.0.44

I hope a new firmware is released. .44 has reduced the number of 5GHz channels that I can use when compared to .38. Whilst I may still be the only 5GHz channel user where I am at the moment, there are a couple of others nearby and BT Retail and VM have launched new routers which will by default use the 5GHz channels as well.

I upgraded to .44 and it has been working well otherwise. I'm currently not using the USB port, but it is otherwise working well.

Re: WNDR3800 Firmware Update v1.0.0.44

Hi!

Can someone please tell me how to change my Router password.
I forgot my original one. This would be for a NetGear 60, WNDR3800 unit.

Also is there a wizard or genie out there I can walk through with my serial number?
Would the site ask me my security questions?

I'm trying to interface with new Ipad.

Thanks,

Tomjon

The original password is printed on the underside of the router.

If you have changed this and cannot log into the router using the admin details, then you will need to reset the router and set it up from scratch.

It is no good looking at the config file as that is encrypted, not in plain text.

Bug Fixes, New Features and Enhancements:
    Android devices from various manufacturers have trouble connecting to and staying connected to my router. The previous firmwares don't work either. When they do connect it's within 5m, any distance greater and it's a no go. :confused:

    I spent a lot of money buying this, was supposed to be future proof, but I feel seriously let down as the major part of this router which is the wifi DOES NOT WORK. Smiley Sad

    Been over a year since the last released firmware. How about you release another that actually fixes the problem? :rolleyes:

Sorry for the delay in responding. I've been away.

Try this link:

Let me know when you've downloaded it and I'll remove the zip file.
