Re: Problems with new firmware 1.1.2.184933

I am not going to roll back as mine is working perfectly for me.

Since I am not using wired backhaul any real reason to roll back?

Re: Problems with new firmware 1.1.2.184933

Thanks I have done mine. One of the nodes is still on the buggy firmware. The app helped with rolling back fw for those nodes 

that were intermittently online it seems, and 1 node just did not connect back and now the app indicates that frimware up to date, but cclicking into that 1 specific node showed the buggy fw version.

I just need to do a 192.1.168.82/fwupdate.html right? .82 is that nodes ip. 

 

Guys how do you get the nodes to go wired backhaul? the lack of control is making me paranoid. 

The netwrok is up but they are using wireless. I do not like this becasue I know the concrete walls are a major issue. I want them to be wired. How do you guys "force" a wired backhaul? will unplugging my lan cable from each node, and plugging it back cause some form of detection? Not sure if this is going to work since they were already plugged in and rolling back should have caused some form of detection right.... 

 

cheers

The only stable version for wired backhaul I’ve found is:

Firmware version: 1.1.1.179155
Release date: February 17, 2017

- Added support for VLAN tagging on the WAN interface
- General bug fixes

Unplug your Ethernet cables and allow the nodes to stabilize. Make sure the app see them all and they are working correctly. Then, one by one plug the Ethernet cable back in on each node.

from my experience - you need to turn the node off before plugging in the Ethernet cable - then power up with the thereby already plugged in

To make sure that all nodes are on the same firmware.

Re: Problems with new firmware 1.1.2.184933

To make sure all the nodes are on the same firmware. Go to your parent node http://192.168.1.1/sysinfo.cgi log in with your admin userid and password. 

 

At the top of that page look for the firmware of the parent. 

 

Then search for bh_report. That will give you the current IP addresses of all the connected nodes. 

 

Go to each http://192.168.1.x/sysinfo.cgi page and confirm the firmware of each node. Any node not at Firmware Version: 1.1.2.183316 go and update their firmware by visiting http://192.168.1.x/fwupdate.html

 

When you upload the firmware, you'll see the browser status bar get to 100% and then you will get a response back saying Result OK. But at this point the upgrade hasn't even started. So wait a while until the firmware update has finished and the node rebooted and back to a Solid Blue light. 

 

Reconnect any ethernet cables and then power cycle the node. 

 

Go back to the http://192.168.1.1/fwupdate.html and confirm that all nodes are using the ethernet or required backhaul by looking again at the bh_report. 

 

This is what mine looks like after everything is rolled back and normal.

Linksys--

 

  Is this amateur hour. Don't you test your firmware BEFORE release. And releasing it two days BEFORE a major holiday is an act of GENIUS.. We didn't have these problems when linksys was owned by Cisco!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lynchmob: Can you elaborate on why you believe this one is the most stable? I rolled back to the most recent fw just prior to this update and it seems fine again but if there's more stability/performance in the version you referenced I'd love to hear it and possibly try it out. Do you have a link to the firmware? Thanks in advance.
