Default NEW Firmware 1.018

Hello All,

This is not yet available on the website, but my router tells me that 1.018 is available.

I will re-type the release notes for you here:

1. Update to 1.016

Great, huh?

Anyone update yet?

R

YES!!! I already love this firmware. I can finally achieve 150Mbps on my laptop. With previous firmware i only had 65Mbps. I just had to uncheck "Enable 20/40Hz Coexistence" in the advanced wireless settings.

I believe that option has always been there.

I think not, it was never there before or the previous didn't have it. If it was present i had deselected right away. I'm glad it is there now or back. I'm not familiar with the first firmwares.

The "Enable 20/40Hz Coexistence" option did not exist in the previous 1.0.1.6_1.0.24 version.

There is a setting in control panel where you can direct your wireless adapter to operate in either 20hz or auto(20/40hz). In Vista:

Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Device Manager>Network adapters>
1.choose your wireless adapter
2. in the window that opens go to Advanced
3. look for "802.11n Channel Width for band 2.4" and adjust accordingly
4. there is a similar setting for band 2.5

The process is similar in other versions of Windows
