I just opened an E4200 fresh from Best Buy. The box does not say v2 anywhere. The box says the maximum speed is 300+450 Mbps. The router itself does not say v2 anywhere. From my reading, these facts point to my router being v1. And yet the firmware is v2.0.26, which I was able to upgrade automatically from the router's console to v2.0.36. So do I really have a mislabeled v2? Or is it a modified or mis-manufactured v1 which accepts the v2 firmware?

jjjobst, are you sure it doesn't say V2 on the bottom? I say this because I had to look twice because it was hard to see. I bought mine from N&**$g and the same thing happend to me.....ordered V1 received a V2. Check the bottom of the unit again, the text below the sticker.....it can be hard to see because of the reduced contrast of the text.
