[ Edited ]

Just logged into my EA6500 and noticed new firmware available..1.1.28.146072

 

Anyone try this yet? It's not on the download page yet so no notes on what this addresses...

I tried it. 

 

The Media Prioritization just says "Loading..." and won't stop.

 

Other than that the internet still works.

Try to use another internet browser. Also, restart the pc and unplug/replug the router.

LMAO Another firmware update for the 6500 im so glad i did not buy that buggy router. Cisco did no testing or homework before they put that thing on the market.I guess they are using there customers as there testers. Shame on that..

I already unplugged, restarted the router and computer. It didn't change anything. 

 

As for the web browser it's giving me the "Loading..." under Chrome and not IE9 which is kind of ironic because I just recently stopped using IE9.

@Uilleam:

 

You may also try another computer to further isolate the issue. Does this "loading..." issue only happens on the Media Prioritization?

Try rolling back to the previous firmware. Then reflash the latest firmware. If you have apple iPhone or iPad or Android, use the cloud app to update the firmware this time.

@ Jibjib: Y should we as customers users have to deal with all this cr@p  we buy a router hook it up and expect it to work thats it. Most people dont know how to work on routers and they should not have to forceing people to constantly worry about problems and updates is stupid. Just my 2 Cents ...

I tried it on my laptop with a slightly older version of Chrome and it's working. No "Loading..." status.

 

Yes Media Prioritization is the only widgest affected. 

 

I might put the old firmware back on later. 

 

I think I might try upgrading Chrome to the beta version I'm running on this computer. The interface was working fine under the version of Chrome I'm running until I upgraded the firmware.
