I purchased a Kindle Fire last week and it works fine at work, at restaurants, etc. Some of the KF discussions I've been following suggest updating the router's firmware so the KF will recognize and connect to it.
I use the router at home with no problems (we had a desktop and a laptop using it; now just the laptop).
In the upper-right-hand corner of the screen, you should see the words "Firmware Version" and then several numbers. If that's the number you see, then skip to step 12.
Go to Control Panel--tftp client Reference The following is for an initial install on a Buffalo router.
If you're already using a third-party firmware or just upgrading a Tomato firmware, try uploading any of the files from the GUI.
If not, which version can I use and is there another source of the firmware other than cisco?
I've got version 2.02.7, perhaps that is already the latest version?
As you see, it is generally not a good idea to buy any of the ones from version 5 and up, because that is the point at which the specs got rolled back.
The earlier models are easily found for cheap though.The version numbers that Cisco puts on their home Wi Fi routers is in regard to the hardware used.The WRT54G v2 and the WRT54G v3 (and so on) have different hardware and so the firmware for the v3 may not work correctly on the v2.I'm looking to upgrade my WRT54G v8 to its newest factory firmware (I believe that was 8.0.8). (And I know about DD-WRT and Tomato, etc., but right I just want to do factory firmware update.)Thanks for any pointers.I'm looking to upgrade my WRT54G v8 to its newest factory firmware (I believe that was 8.0.8). (And I know about DD-WRT and Tomato, etc., but right I just want to do factory firmware update.)There is a list of WRT54G specs on Wikipedia.More directly applicable, I think the best place to ask for firmware for these routers might be on the forum.
