    I'm brand new to the forums, and have found very much useful information on them. However, my trouble is that whenever I try to upgrade my router's firmware, I get an error about some File Pattern junk or something.

    I thought at first that the file I downloaded was corrupted, so I downloaded it again, and tried over. Same error, so I downloaded a different version, tried that... Same error. My firmware says that it's from like 1987 :p

    1.43.3, Nov 15 2002

    I don't know exactly what I should do. Oh, yes, and I tried the TFTP upgrade, that failed as well.

    Great! It worked!

    Thank you very much. So I have that old of a version? Would you say it's time for an upgrade?

    If I upgraded would I get a better product with more features, or would it be the same thing and have a different plastic case?

    Finally, in your eyes, which is the best router of all of them? (I do not need wireless)

    Thank you.
