Firmware for HG533

Hi,

 

Is there a new firmware or a beta version available for the HG533 router. It is currently running 1.14t which has caused a very unreliable connection, and seems to have stoppped Sipgate from working for incomming calls. Alternatively, how can I roll it back to a previous version so that it works again?

 

Thanks

Re: Firmware for HG533

Are you having problems with drop-out in connection after approx 20 mins or so too? If you get a reply with potential Firmware fix can you let me know please. Although I have been told the D-Link Fibre router maybe better for certain wireless devices!

Re: Firmware for HG533

I don't think it's after 20 minutes as it seems to be randomly but it's happening frequently. It's not the socket or the micro filter as I've tried a new filter and plugged straight into the test socket and it still plays up. Think the version of the firmware is just rubbish. Failing that being the problem then it must just be talktalk's service, in which case I will have to look at moving elsewhere.

Re: Firmware for HG533

To be honest after the never ending issues I have had with my TT broadband  the last time their tech guys came round the took my old DLINK router away nd replaced it with this HG533 router stating this would be the answer to the issues.. omg how I fell for that one... it did nothing to solve the issues except to hide all the endless error counts the line recieves - the DLINK had some useful stat software that could better highlight when things were being "possibly" throttled. The HG533 very conveniently shows nothing, which I guess is why they wanted to get the DLINK out asap.

To make matters worse the firmware for this router updated automatically and I too now have version 1.14t. With all the erratic disconnects I began to get after this update I decided to junk it and use my spare Linksys router... not had any mysterious DC's since, just the same old erratic line errors that have plagued the service I recieve for like 2+ yrs now.

Re: Firmware for HG533

I used the HG523a router for a very long time because it gave the best stability and speeds, I then changed to FTTC and I have never had a single problem with the HG533 so I must be one of the lucky ones as I have never had any problems with this router.

 

I have been accepted on the trial and am expecting the update Monday night, so I hope all goes well and my speeds etc stay the same,   At the moment I am getting 37.79Mbps download which never changes.

Re: Firmware for HG533

I Have also been using this device for some time now without any problems, update took place as advertised.
No problems so far speed appears to be a little slower I will carry out some more speed test to confirm.

Every device I have tried so fare connects and works as expected.

My 533 was updated last Friday,everything connects ok,and no dropouts,speed is slightly lower than before,by a couple of kbps,but as I am on fibre,there's plenty to play with.

Re: Firmware for HG533

Had quite a few drop outs today with the router showing a red light for the Internet.

Re: Firmware for HG533

I see this trial is now closed, so has the speed drop off reported by a number of us, been resolved (further update to follow)?

 

Appreciate mine was minimal (and still is), but others seem to have had higher drop offs than I.

Re: Firmware for HG533

Not only is the trial closed but it seems that the firmware is now being pushed to all HG533 routers. I am currently visiting my son who has an HG533 router (but was not a triallist) and this afternoon I notice that it is running firmware v1.15t. We must assume that the trial was a success!

Re: Firmware for HG533

Since update I requested my profile to be set back to 6db as old firmware would not hold this profile , since update this profile has held fine so I have a speed increase due to profile change so at moment happy days new firmware working very nicely for me.

Only problem to report is my wifi still stutters between 10-11pm did before and still does now weird .
