I get a lot of questions about issues with wireless routers and we have covered it some on the show. Listener Chris sent me this comment and I think it is a good reminder that the firmware should be one of the first things to check when you start to have any issues with a piece of aging hardware.
It has worked fine w/ my 2 PC for the entire month. When I got my new iBook a month ago it would work fine for 10 minutes then the router would lock up. I would need to reset it by unplugging it. This happened pretty much every time I used it. I went to the Linksys web site, grabbed the latest firmware, flashed the router. That fixed the problem. I was out 4 revisions back from the latest firmware. Just a reminder for people to check the router firmware if they’re having similar problems.
