WVC80N Firmware Version Confusion

My WVC80N lists it's firmware as "v1.0.00 build 08".  The support site lists the latest firmware as "Ver.1.0.08".  Are these in fact the same firmware?  In the release notes for "Ver.1.0.08" it says...

 

Cisco Consumer Business Group

Product: WVC80N v1
Classification: Firmware Release History
Firmware Date: Aug 14, 2009

Last Firmware Version: 1.0.08
_____________________________________________________________________

Firmware 1.0.00 (build 08)
- Initial release

...which is also confusing.  Instead of saying "Last Firmware Version:" shouldn't it say "LATEST Firmware Version?  "Last" version sounds to me the same as saying "The version BEFORE the current one".  Can anyone clear all this up for me please?

Re: WVC80N Firmware Version Confusion

Well Firmware version 1.0.08 is an Initial Release firmware for the Camera. The last 08 is a build 8 Firmware. And on your Camera setup page also it will display you the same thing, Firmware Version 1.0.00 Build 08.

 

The Last Firmware Version : I think 08 should be mentioned as build 08.

Re: WVC80N Firmware Version Confusion

So I'm still not sure.  Is Firmware version 1.0.08 the same firmware as "1.0.00 Build 08" or not????

Re: WVC80N Firmware Version Confusion

The tech I spoke to at Linksys claimed that v1.0.00 (build 08) and 1.0.08 are not the same, but my camera won't update to 1.0.08.  The support staff at Linksys seem to be completely clueless! 

 

Linksys has the absolute worst support.

Still awaiting clarification.  Is this lack of response typical of Linksys?

i own a E4200 Cisco Router and bought the WVC80N Cisco Home Monitoring Cam

 

i set everything up fine including the wireless capability

 

i then notice that there is a FW upgrade available for the camera:

Firmware

10/30/2009

Ver.1.0.01

Download 3.41 MB

 

i go though the upgrade process and after it reaches 100%, a pop-up window says camera restarting and to wait before continuing (there is also a textbox labelled "OK" which i can click)

 

well, guess what.....the camera never restarts!  i have tried many solutions:

 

a) don't click "OK" and wait for camera to restart

b) click "OK"  and wait for camera to restart
c) go through this entire process with the camera hooked up wirelessly

d) go through this entire process with the camera wired to my router

e) refresh the web browser GUI

f) click APPLY on that browser page

g) pull the power cord on the camera, wait >30secs plug it back in...

 

how hard does it need to be to do a simple FW upgrade using Cisco's own browser GUI?

 

Any suggestions to resolve this? Thanks!

Re: WVC80N Firmware Version Confusion

Did you ever figure this out? I am now stuck with a camera that will not work after the FW update as well
