I generally don’t post unless I have a major issue or can help, but I have to Post in this case Western Digital have an issue with these routers. Mine is the N900 Central; which has over the time I have owned it gone from the factory original firmware that I updated to the 1.06 firmware on the first day then onto the 1.07 firmware when that came out.
* 1.06 gen was Okay for me, yes disconnects but not all the time say every few days.
* 1.07 gen is a Nightmare in that it disconnects multiple times a day, my daughter lets me know as the laptop looses the Internet.
- I believe there is either a hardware issue which I would think WD as a major company would not let happen and if it has would be open to letting people now how to resolve this though remediation or RMA etc.
- Its firmware / configuration, I think / HOPE Western Digital are burning the midnight oil to get on top of.
I’m no complainer but need to vent as its a real pain to keep rebooting the router via the power switch and I guess this is not good for the internal HDD.
My advice - Get the community involved; Create a working group through accepting invitations, get guys to test nightly / weekly builds etc to expedite a the creation of a good build I’m sure there will be people that would jump at the opertunity.
BTW when is the next Firmware build currently scheduled to be released, in this case with all the issues letting the community know would be a GOOD thing.
