Hi Guys, just wanted to let you know that the new firmware many of us have been waiting for has just been released over at Linksys UK... WRT300N v2 (silver casing) Classification: Firmware Release History Release Date: 11-15-2006 Firmware Version: 2.00.17 (ETSI) __________________________________________________________ 2.00.17 - Fixes usability issues - Overall performances improvement (speed and range), it is recommended to upgrade your Linksys draft N clients to the latest driver also available on this web site Tip : Linksys recommends using WPA2-AES security setup to combine best performance and security - To upgrade the router from firmware version 2.00.8, it requires two steps as follows: step 1) Upgrade the router using the bin file called: wrt300n.bin step 2) Upgrade the router using the bin file called : wrt300n-2.00.17.bin - To upgrade the router from firmware version 2.00.13 and after, only one step is required, upgrade the router using the file called wrt300n-2.00.17.bin in the zip file. I will be installing this new firmware on my WRT300N as soon as I get home from work, about 8 hours time. I will tell you all how it goes. One thing I have noticed, is that the information in the release notes is slightly wrong. It's the part about the filename for the new firmware, the notes call it wrt300n-2.00.17.bin, but the file that is inside the zip is actually called New_wrt300n.bin, so use this file and all will be ok for you. Please post your comments about this firmware, lets hope this one is a good one! ***UPDATE*** I have installed this new firmware, without any problems. I have found no new functions in the menus, and have noticed that the router is slightly more responsive. My ping test to the router's IP has improved. It now has a TTL of 64, instead of 255, and the responce time says less than 1ms, which is also better, as the older firware always stated 1-2ms. I had been having problems with a wireless uPnP media player (random but frequent disconnections), and will test this in the next day or so. My family have told me that they have not suffered lock-ups or wireless disconnections since the upgrade.
