What's new on firmware 1.07?
« on: July 28, 2013, 03:30:20 PM »

I check the new firmware with router internal tool. It said 1.07 is the latest one. But no release notes.

Do you have release notes of it?
I would like to see if any problem if I upgrade to new firmware.

What region are you located?
Is the router exhibiting any problems?

There isn't any release note information posted on the web site as if yet. I see one site in EU has v1.08 for that region and they 5Ghz WiFi scanning and connections was improved on that version.

It's recommended that if your router works, there's not need for a FW update:

I am in Canada.

I don't have problem with this router now. The connection is not stable in one room of my home. It is just a 3 stories town house.
The new firmware is global indicated as below.

Ok. well, I would keep whats loaded on it for now. If its working well for you then theres not need to update. I presume that eventually v1.07 and v1.08 will be posted, as to when, I don't know.

Enjoy.

Or just go here:

Well it hasn't been posted so it's unofficial at the moment. I recommend that users upgrade to it if they are only exhibiting issues that this version seems to fix until they officially post it. If your router works with out problems, don't upgrade.

I bougth my DIR-850L last July at Best Buy Canada. Since then I upgraded firmware twice, 1.05 to 1.06 and today 1.06 to 1.07. Using FW 1.06 My Dlink Shareport was not able to read USB by internet direct access. Now it is ok and everything seems to be working fine. I used US site firmware.

Glad you got v1.07 installed and it's working well. U.S. and Canada can usually share the same FW since we are in the same region on most routers.

Enjoy.

Hi All, I am in Asia (Malaysia). I was using the v1.07 but since upgraded to v1.09 I find it could not connect to the internet anymore. was hoping to get more stable wifi connectivity but ended up this way. Is there a way to revert back the FW or anywhere could I obtain back the 1.07 FW?

Help much appreciated.

It is strange. Mostly new firmware is better than old ones.
I suggest you try to investigate it. Maybe some wrong setting

I find it strange too in the first place. Now I come to think that I'd accidentally flashed it with other region's FW that does not support Unifi (Malaysia's broadband service). My best bet now is to revert back to v1.07 for Malaysia use. I am stucked  ???
