I have a DLINK DIR-880L 8-port wired/wireless LAN router. The only issue I’ve had with it is that some WiFi devices will not connect unless I reboot the router. I put up with this for some time before it occurred to me to check the firmware.
Well, sure ’nuff, when I logged in to the router today, there was an update available. In fact my router was running 1.01 and the latest version is 1.05.
I have upgraded to the latest firmware, and will see if it performs better.
I’ve posted before about upgrading firmware in cameras, and I need to remember that all sorts of other devices have firmware that can be upgraded, too.
