Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
I have never updated the old v 4.0 tcp\ip stack - multiple choice question - based on y'alls opinion and experience should I:

a) update with the WR_8421 release
b) update with the WR_8610\8620\8621 release
c) just leave it be

Kind regards,
arr

I don't know to much of the diffrent versions. Though the firewall is quite nice. The 32bit TCPIP has a routing bug and you need to put a netmask in your IFCONFIG to keep your routing table from flooding.

As far as stability I've used both 16bit and 32bit TCPIP and both seem good and stable.

From what I understand the built-in firewall only comes with 4.3 which I would have to shell a bunch of money to get. I do understand from reading though that you can upgrade the 16-bit 4.0 stack to 32-bit by applying the 8610\8620\8621 update but it does not update the apps. That can only be done by purchasing 4.3 from what I have been reading on the net. So I am not sure how well it would work with a 32-bit stack and 16-bit tcp\ip apps. Although the info I have gotten could very well be faulty but I have read this from several different sites on the net. Maybe I should just leave it alone. I appreciate your opinion sir, thanks

kind regards,
arr
