Note. Please remember to do factory default after firmware upgrade if you upgrade this firmware from v1.0.0.6. Enter "Backup Settings" in the web GUI and click "Erase" button of "Revert to factory default settings".

New Features and Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed the issue that WLAN client can not communicate with other WLAN client.
  • Fixed the issue that firmware can not downgrade to V1.0.0.12 version.

Known Issues:

  • NTFS write performance (upload to WNDR3700 attached USB storage) is much slower than read no matter using samba or FTP. FTP read is 5 times faster than write. Samba (ie. access network drive via windows) read is 2 times faster than write.
  • Sometimes clicking "Safely remove USB device" button can not remove USB storage safely.
  • Workaround: Make sure you are not accessing the attached USB device and the LED on USB device is not blinking (it means no one is accessing it). Then you need to remove the USB device directly and ignore the message about "remove USB device failure) from web GUI.
  • Traffic meter - Traffic volume control is not accurate due to sampling rate. It may exceed the limit.
  • Workaround: Set a proper number in "Mbytes before the monthly limit is reached" in the traffic control.
