"No lovin' from this version."

April 24, 2005  |  By Soonie

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Installed (after doing the filename switcheroo), reset router to default, and it locked up all of my "b" Airport laptops (3). Downgraded to previous version 1.50.14 and all was well. I hate when version details aren't included, but it was my fault for blindly upgrading. The previous version works great.

Downloader Beware.

"Will Not Upgrade"

Tried several times with 3 different browsers. I get the failed to upgrade message. Router is working fine. Date on this upgrade says 4/07. This could be an old upgrade.

"Great"

March 01, 2005  |  By tutv

 |  Version: Linksys BEFW11S4 v4 1.50.14

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I upgraded to this from the firmware that shipped (1.45.3).
The upgrade worked just fine in Firefox 1.0.1 on OS X 10.3.8, and took around 30 seconds. (I connected to the router via ethernet)
It adds quite a few bug fixes and new features - the most useful for me is WPA and the flashing of the 'Wireless-B' light on the front, when there is WiFi activity.
I got a brand-new user interface too (although this was also present in 1.50), which is MUCH easier to use, with some handy setup hints.

I'm connected to it right now over WiFi with my PowerBook and Airport Extreme card, with WPA enabled. Great, and very worthwhile update!

"So far, so much better..."

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Has solved the occasional unexplained web dropouts, and seems to be zippier when serving multiple computers simultaneously.

This firmware update is the second one I've done on this router (from the shipped version to 1.50.10, then this one to update to 1.50.14). The updates ran fine, but it took some fiddling to get the right settings in IE. (I had no luck updating with Safari 1.2.2, build 125.8) As suggested by Linksys and others, I:

[First off, BE VERY SURE THAT THIS IS THE RIGHT UPDATE FOR YOUR ROUTER MODEL!! Check the model number AND revision number very carefully...there are at least FOUR different hardware versions of this model number alone. If there is no version number (v.2, v.4, etc.) after the model number, you have Rev. 1]

1) added the router's IP address to my list of trusted sites (http://192.168.1.1/)

2) allowed Java access to non-Java files.

3) set my software channel security to "low".

4) set logon authentication to Prompt for Username and Password.

(The settings 2-4 above are available in the Custom Settings page of the Security Zones tab of IE Preferences)

5) emptied the cache and set the browser to always refresh the cache.

6) connect to the router via Enet cable, not wirelessly.

7) after update is complete, unplug/replug router for a few seconds to soft-reset it.

I have sucessfully updated my router and one other (different model) Linksys router using this method. Remember to RESET your security and java settings when you've finished.
