Actiontec router wierd behavior

Message 1 of 5

Hi,

 

I have a (hopefully quick) question regarding my fios router (actiontec mi424wr). Yesterday I telnetted into it and looked up the kernel version. Here is the result:

 

 

Wireless Broadband Router> system cat  /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.16.14 #2 SMP Fri Oct 29 13:15:55 PDT 2010

Wireless Broadband Router> system cat  /proc/versionLinux version 2.6.16.14 #2 SMP Fri Oct 29 13:15:55 PDT 2010

 

 

Notice the date: 10/29/2010. I have had this device for the last 1.5 years. Does this mean that Verizon has updated the firmware?

 

Thanks

Yes it does. Verizon has the ability to remotely upgrade the firmware on the router.

Thanks for replying, Smith6612.

 

Is there a way to revert an upgrade? Because the router has been acting very strange in the last several weeks, starting with mid-december. Radio would turn itself off now and then, spontaneous reboots/resets... I even ended up using an old laptop as a wireless AP, to workaround wireless issues.

Why do that ... just call Verizon and tell them that the router keeps resetting itself ... they should send out a replacement.

You can roll back the update in the router under advanced.
