EA6900 New Firmware 1.1.42.158863 ???

I recently saw that my firmware on my router had been auto updated from Build 156465.  

 

Has anyone seen release notes on this new build?   Linksys support still referred to 156465 being the most recent firmware available.

 

 

Cheers.

I'm in the Chicagoland area.

 

I've been poking around looking for changes in functionality, but haven't found any yet.

Hmmm. Interesting. Last time I checked (and that was a few minutes ago), the latest EA6900 firmware version posted in the official Linksys download page is Ver.1.1.42 (Build 156465)Care to share us the link where you saw the new firmware version?

I see that version too. it show up when you look for updates using the router config page. The user interface under Connectivity. I have mine set to not upgrade automatically because they dont tell you what it is before it gets released so I don't trust them to do it on their own. I need to be in control of upgrades. a bad upgrade would kill my work connection.

i accidentally clicked on upgrade and let it run. so far the only thing i think i see is that the guest network now has both 2.5 and 5 ghz settings and they show on the front page. don't remember that being there before. still looking

I'm glad I'm not the only one who received the new firmware update.

 

The 5GHz guest access is definitely new.   Good find.

First issue. Tried to look at the status last night and the page timed out. Noticed that a few of my devices were not working. Tried to connect them but they would not connect. Had to remove power to reboot the router. Everything seems to be OK after that. Will watch this very closely.

Looks like a new USB page as well but not sure about that one. I don't have any USB connected on mine

Re: EA6900 New Firmware 1.1.42.158863 ???

my router kept dropping connections to devices randomly. I had to roll back. didn't find any particular reason it was happening and it was on devices on both bands. anyone else seeing this?
