November 2, 2007 - High Hopes :smile: I just upgraded the firmware in the WRVS4400N to V1.1.03. Someone did a lot of work on this version and should be congratulated for the effort. There are many new menus and many Cisco-ish capabilities that were not present before. I truly hope the advanced capability testing goes well. If so, this router may have actually jumped from a recommended sell category to a must buy category :smile: . Upgrade recommendations (an ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cures) :redface: I found it is best to go through each menu of your old existing firmware version (before the upgrade) and create screen captures (Alt-Print Screen), paste them into a Microsoft Word Document and save the document to a file with the date and firmware version in the file name. The reason for this is that the configuration will need to be reset to the default values after the firmware upgrade. :halo: Also remember that if you are using a non-default sub-net (i.e. 10.2.1.0) for VLANs or IPSec attempts, it will be defaulted to 192.168.1.0 after the reset. This means that you will need to change your network properties on your local computer after the router reset to be able to communicate with the router to be able to configure it. Before going any further, I recommend physically disconnecting the router from the internet for security purposes until the new firmware configuration is complete. Here is a checklist: 1. Download firmware V1.01.03 2. Download firmware V1.00.16 (or what ever version you presently have) some are in the download are of this site. 3. Disconnect from the Internet 4. Make sure your computer is physically connected to the router (don't try this using the wireless). 5. Save the router existing configuration 6. Screen capture the router existing configuration. 7. Upgrade the firmware on the router. 8. Reset/Default the router through the Web interface. 9. Disable your network adapter (optional). 10. Update your IP configuration (optional). 11 Enable your network adapter. 12. Access the router through the web interface. 13. Authenticate using the default user/password combination. 14. Referencing your Word Document, configure the router. 15. For the many new settings available, leave them alone for now. 16. Change the user/password in the Administration area to your user/password. 17. Save the new configuration file from the web interface. 18. Now you can play with the new settings. The basics seem to work well. I have not started the enhanced functions yet.
