HG 533 firmware update

Hello all,
I have just updated my HG533 to v1.14t. Couldn't find any release notes but that would have just ruined the fun.

The upshot is that, when it rebooted, it connected at a faster speed than it has done for a while (although this could all be incidental) & all wired & wireless units in the house function normally (not that they shouldn't).

Anyway, thought I'd let you know incase you wanted to give it a try.

Regards,
SimonB

Sorry, should have said. This was via the upgrade option within the advanced section of the HG533.

I updated mine via wireless with no problems.

It won't look like it's doing alot, but after about 2mins it will reboot & start up in the usual manner (there is a message to this effect displayed on the screen when you click on the upgrade button).

Well didn't get a router update email from labs, so presumably missed that one, so have done it manually instead.

I saved routers config file first and glad I did (on fibre) as it would not connect to internet until config file had been uploaded again after the firmware update.

At first glance it looked to have saved all settings after the flash, but clearly something was going on lol
