WiFi Ranger "Bug Fix" Firmware Update Available

For those of you who are WiFiRanger customers, a bug fix update (6.6.5p1) has just been released. Your router probably already is showing its availability; if not, click on the "Check for Updates" link on the Control Panel.

This update doesn't provide new features, but it does fix a few identified problems wit the existing 6.6.5 firmware. The specific fixes are as follows:

* Fix for GO2 Hardware Watchdog ( Random hardware reboots )
* Fix for Filtered Issue ( Https filtered networks, "Click here to login" Button on WFRControl was not redirecting properly )
* Fix for Management Network Admin Page
* Fix for WFRBoost ( Check both default IP's 192.168.250.20 and 192.168.1.20 )
* Fix for DNS hang ( This caused the speedtest to just hang, if DNS
did not respond )
* Fix for 505 Badgateway on the Control Panel ( Making the control panel inaccessible when our server was down or when the review stars showed up and the WiFiRanger was offline )
* Improved stability
* New wireless driver (The sleeping printer issue)

For most of us, the most noticeable fix will be for filtered networks at CG's (networks that have a Welcome screen that you either have to click on or enter a code).

Remember, if you are updating a Go/Mobile or Go/Sky pair you will only need to do one update and both devices will update together.

Thanks for posting this, doc. I want to report that although my WiFiRanger was recently updated to the latest firmware, this bug-fix has made a big difference. It downloaded, installed and re-booted unattended, and has locked on to an otherwise weak open AP. I is providing us with a great signal, significanltly more useable than without. (Actually, my wife's iPad kept dropping the wifi until I had her log in on the WFRanger.

I also remember numerous times when it used to drop and re-boot, or present a few other of the bugs, no fixed.

So THANKS to the techs at WiFIRanger, and to doc. If anyone here is thinking about getting something to increase their wifi range, this is the hot ticket.

Here are a couple of additional tips that can assist with the update and also with overall performance:

--Paired units should initiate the upgrade while the outdoor unit is the internet source. (Via WFRControl) This will then upgrade the units together.

--Another thing that will GREATLY help users is to disable auto-connection on the outdoor unit, and disable “auto-pairing” on indoor unit once the units are paired and running.
