    Download firmware HERE

    Note: I would advise that anyone flashing/upgrading their WRT350N to use the TFTP.exe found in the download section. Remove anything connected to your router other than the PC. It is important that you wait for at least 5 minutes BEFORE you do a hard reset on your router, right after you flashed it. As always, flash/upgrade at your own risk!

    Does anyone know if this 1.03.7 version is really an upgrade from the 1.05.8 Beta that has been out for sometime. The fact that a new firmware is finally out is nice I just don't want to go back to a older version if it isn't as featured/stable as the beta.

    1.05.8 isn't perfect but it is heads and heals better then the 1.03.2 that was around until the new release.

    1.03.7 is newer than 1.05.8. 1.05.xx is a development branch for linksys, when 1.03 is a release branch..

    Here are the issues I got on this new firmware:
    1. "password authentication failure" on DDNS using DynsDNS. It worked at first but for some reason it couldnt authenticate for sometime. I had to do a hard reset and re-create all my settings for it to work again.

    2. The following adapters works on AUTO in wireless: WMP300N, WPC54GX, WMP54GX-v2. Wifi on my Nokia E61i can't detect the router when it's set to AUTO. I had to set the WRT350N to BG-Mixed, Standard 20MHz Channel, Wide-9 (Default), Channel 11. The good thing is that the Nokia can now connect even if the SSID is disabled unlike in firmware 1.03.2 and 1.05.8. The bad news is that I had to manually set the network mode. I may just connect my WRT54GX-v2 to the WRT350N as a solution.

    3. Music and movies can now be played from my USB drives. Unfortunately, videos won't play "smoothly" and would pause/stutter every now and then. The issue is not present if I plug the USB drive directly to my PC. I have an 80g 2.5 Seagate Momentus SATA on a Philips enclosure and WD 350 USB enclosure.

    4. Security LED (still) turns Amber when a USB drive is connected. I guess it's feature?

    Well, 2 days with this firmware and so far I have had zero problems to report.
    Using mixed mode and 20mhz wide band channel 9 and both of my laptops with 4965AGN cards are connecting at 130mbps steady with no dropped signals and this is with e few G wireless devices attached too (my 4 kids all have one of my old laptops with wireless G cards)

    Upgraded Without disconnecting the USB Drive

    The good news is that everything worked perfectly. I have access to my drive and am perfectly satisfied. I'm using Vista Ultimate and the only thing that changed is that the router now includes a pin number that Vista wants to use. Since I haven't done it the security light is now orange instead of green. I'm using WPA with AES encryption so that is not it. There's a new icon under my Network that is called Linksyswrt350n that is different from the usual drive icon. This one, when double clicked, asks for the pin number that is now found under the basic settings under Wireless. I called Linksys and it was the first time they've heard of it and this was level 2 support. They took the info to send to the engineering department. I just wanted to know how to answer some of the questions asked by this new setup. I saw it before in version 1.03.6 but I screwed up and answered wrong and it changed my password and I could not go back and fix it. I want some clear instructions! It doesn't appear under my XP machines.

    That pin number is part of the Draft 2.0 Spec.

    This release is giving me a lot of problems - Wireless signal is disappearing from the radar once every couple of days consistently! Anyone else seeing this? The hard wired ports are fine.... I have to reboot to get the wifi back..
  10. LlamaLarry

    LlamaLarry Network Guru Member

    Yep, same issue over here. Was popping on to the board to see if anyone else had reported it.

    I can ping the box, but cannot access the admin pages either, so the only way to bring it back is to power cycle it.

    Linkyguy Network Guru Member

    I've gone back to 1.03.6 - new release dropping every other day......Linksys chat support have never heard of any problems!!
  12. jgdiaz

    jgdiaz LI Guru Member

    Well mine started dropping the wireless signal too after a week of not having any problems, so I decided to doa quick experiment and I read on the official Linksys forum were someone had opened their router and put a fan to blow air over the internal components. I decided to try this and I took off the 2 top covers (one is the silver cover and a black one underneath the silver cover) then I attached a 80mm fan to a aluminum heat sink that was just under the black cover with double sided tape and got power for it directly from the AC adapter power supply that powers the router and so far 2 days without any problems but I want to see how long it will work without problems as I also have a 1TB usb hard drive attached to it and I can access the drive and copy files to and from it from both XP and Vista without any problems either but will see if it will last, only time will tell. I am also connecting to it from 2 laptops with the intel 4965N wireless adapter and I am able to connect at 130 Mbps every single time while using mixed b/g/n mode and with my 4 kids connecting to it with G cards on all their laptops at the same time.

    Duh, I'm confused - now my 1.3.06 loaded WRT350N is dropping every 2 days... I was blaming the new code. But it didn't used to - been solid for over 12months. Could it be getting "tired"?
  14. Linkyguy

    Linkyguy Network Guru Member

    So is your fan keeping the router up?
  15. RafaelCamacho

    RafaelCamacho LI Guru Member

    With v1.03.7, my router freeze when I am using uTorrent. The same problem with the original firmware from linksys in WRT54GS, I think when Thibor create a firmware for WRT350N, all problems will be solved.
  16. LlamaLarry

    LlamaLarry Network Guru Member

    My 350N is still on the latest firmware and I am still having to reboot the router every few days for the wireless clients to be able to connect. :::sigh:::

    Anyone having problems with port forwarding? It says I have IP overlap when I try to enter different ports for the same IP address.

    I am having the same issue. I need to return this POS.
  19. jgdiaz

    jgdiaz LI Guru Member

    No it did not help it kept dropping the signal every few days still, don't know why but 3 week ago I saw the WRT600N at my local Best Buy and at first I wasn't sure if I wanted another Linksys router, but I decided to try it and so far it is working fine and I have not had any dropped signals and have not had any reason to reset it and all my wireless N cards including my Intel 4965N cards always connect at 270Mbps. So even though this router was $279 I am happy with it so far, my WRT350N is in the WRT600N box in my closet stored indefinitely.

    i have to say the same as jgdiaz, after the untimely death of my wrt350n when i upgraded the official firmware i thought i was completely through with linksys equipment, but i couldn't resist the 600n and i think it's pretty good too. there are a few things that could be better but overall i think Linksys have got it right with this one...finally. just a shame they made rc binary only, that'll make things a little more difficult.
  21. jgdiaz

    jgdiaz LI Guru Member

    Thibor , the only ohter thing that is annoying but no a real problem is the only way I am able to access my usb terabyte drive that I have attached to my 600N is using ftp, I used to be able to browse to it in network neighborhood and put in my login information but now going that way I just get the default folder and it tells me I do not have access to it.

    Linkyguy Network Guru Member

    usually its when you specify BOTH instead of UDP or TCP
  23. Linkyguy

    Linkyguy Network Guru Member

    Are you using both a and n bands? what are advantages of this box? That the n band stays up, unlike the 350N?
  24. jgdiaz

    jgdiaz LI Guru Member

    With this option you can if you so desire create 2 separate wireless networks to keep your G(2.4Ghz) and N(5Ghz) wireless devices on the 2 separate networks so they will not interfere with each other, but if you do this I am not sure if the G devices will talk to the N devices but I don't think they can using this mode of operation.
  25. Linkyguy

    Linkyguy Network Guru Member

    do you BOTH selected, instead of either UDP or TCP? need to pick either or

    Thibor -

    Ouch! It seems like your interest in the WRT350N has waned, and we may not see any badly needed firmware improvements from you. But I hope I'm wrong. I think there are a lot of WRT350Ns out there between the WRT54G and the very pricey WRT600N. So far, I've found the 1.03.7 version fairly stable, but a HyperWRT would be greatly welcome!

    Thanks in advance, Mick

    I decided to separate the 2 bands and I actually like this even though you are creating 2 wireless networks the pc's on both wireless networks still talk to each other, I like the fact that my N cards are always connected at 270Mbps since there is no G network traffic interference anymore, so I am very glad I tried the feature since it works as advertised. :biggrin:
