Auto updated firmware 1.1.2.186773 on 2-27-2018

ok, just wondering if anyone has tried the Ver. 1.1.2.186773 auto updated on 2-27-2018. Release notes are not showing up yet as manual firmware for this version isn’t available. Anyone else's system AUTO updating yet? Results

Just checked to look and your right.

 

I had and upgrade waiting. I went ahead and took the risk and it applied to all the nodes via the auto update screen.

 

After the reboot, it looks like Linksys performed some changes on the web interface. In the auto update secion it has a Detail dropdown and now you can see all your nodes and what version the firmware is at.

 

Althoug I have not gone through all the menus, it looks like them might have remove the channel selecto under WIFI. I currently have it configured in Bridge mode and even though I choose the CA option on the bottom, I don't see the channel selection in the wifi area. To be frank....I really dodn't remember if it was there before,but I though I recalled seeing thee wifi bands (only see a 2.4 and one 5 band) and there is not area that I could find to manuall a select a channel.

 

As far as I can tell, everything is up and running correctly. I am not having any roaming issues and speed seems to be great but I am one of the fortunate users that has been performing the upgrades and has not seen many issues like other here.

 

I was on the 1.1.2.186308 firmware before this update got applied.

 

Good luck everyone.

I'm currently on version 1.1.2.185309. And even a manual scan for updates doesn't show anything.

Hi Cwallwey

 

Not sure if your not seeing the update because of the firmware you are currently on or the regon your located in.

 

I found the update via the gui (thru CA option) and the update to 1.1.2.186773 was there.

One thing to note was that I was on firmware 1.1.2.186308. This was put on the website for one day and then removed. You can find more information here. https://community.linksys.com/t5/Velop-Whole-Home-Wi-Fi/Anyone-having-any-luck-with-VELOP-Ver-1-1-2-...

 

I had to manually download the firmware from http://downloads.linksys.com/downloads/firmware/FW_WHW03_1.1.2.186308_prod.img and install it manually.

 

I would not recomend the update unless you feel comfortable installing updates manually.

 

What I can say is that verion 1.1.2.186308 was working without any issues for me for 1 week or so. No drop outs, great speeds. I took the plunge to 1.1.2.186773 a couple of hours ago and so far so good.

 

Once again just like to mention that I have a simple setup. Bridge mode, no wired backhauls. Just the 3 Velop pack setup in my home working wirelessly. I have also had great luck compaired to others because I have not really seen issue like others here on the forums going back three or four firmware revisions.

 

Good luck everyone.

Is this another released and pulled firmware update?

No really sure DrSuSE.

 

I could not find the firmware from the main support site. There is no mention in the release info, some people are getting the option to upgrade only thru the webinterface but other are not.

 

So I would say that this is not really a release yet.

Linksys engineering often rolls out firmware in a batches instead of all at once.
