What is Latest Available FW Release?

    Hi Jchuit,

    I'm still on b005 and would like to upgrade to the latest available release. Where can I get that? The sticky link labled 'b008 Available' has a link to b008 and b009, but I don't see anything for b010 or b011 that I see you make mention of. I'm in the US so I don't have a 13 channel wireless card - does that matter if I use your ETSI FW?

    Thanks for your help and great firmware.

    Regards,
    Chris

    The firmware Tarifa b010 will not be released, Tarifa b011 will be released very soon.

    b010 and b011 are allmost the same, b011 has only a small improvement on the udhcp server and client.

    It has now 14 radio channels, you can use these channels, allthought it is possible that channel 14 will give a lower performance.
    Your clients only support 11 channels (fcc) and will not connect, but this is something you have to test. (some clients support 802.11d and will connect).

    Greetings,

    Jchuit,
    Thank you for your reply. I'm still confused regarding the supported channels. If I have an FCC client, can I still use b011, but only with the 11 FCC channels that the client support. I'm okay with not being able to use the additional channels, I just want to make sure that my FCC 11 channel clients will work with the firmware.

    Thanks again,
    Chris

    Yes, your clients should work without any trouble if you choose channel 1 to 11.

    Only channels 12 to 14 will not work in your case.

    Jchuit,

    Thanks for the latest. I just flashed my WRT54G V4 with b011 and it went perfectly (upgraded from b005)!

    Can you tell me what the best setting is for the TX Antenna (which is set to the default of 'Auto', and the RX Antenna (which appears to default to 'Right'). Is the RX Antenna set to Right part of your Firmware code, because it notes that the default is 'Auto' as well.

    Anyway, if you could tell me what you think the best performance settings are for a Version 4 router, I would appreciate it.

    Thank you again for all your work. I've really enjoyed using your firmware and it has worked very well for me.

    Regards,
    Chris

    The best is to select Auto for TX and RX, this is also the default setting of the firmware.

    If you have a one external or one high gain antenna, I would use the right antenna for the external antenna and (if needed) select Right for TX and select Auto for Rx.
    (You can select Left for Tx without any problem too).

    Greetings,
    Jchuit
