TalkTalk Router Update Tool

Conversation Starter
I'm on fibre optic with TalkTalk plus , is this tool still necessary for me? Just wanted some more information about it please :)

My router is a Huawei EchoLife HG532 and on the back of the router it says the firmware version is : V3.03T
and hardware version : B.1.01
Is this already up to date??

Many thanks guys

Hi colzey,

Yes you can still use the Router Firmware Update Tool as long as you have a compatible router.

About the TalkTalk Router Update Tool
Please see my reply on the 'fake email' thread. The email everyone got to upgrade F/W is causing issues. I have V3.03t as well on my HG532 (since the update a few months ago). Running the update tool it just says 'unknown router'.

I have reset the password back to 'admin' and the IP range to, (you have to do that as the tool is a bit 'noddy') but it still does not work. It is possible that 3.03 IS the latest version; I read in a previous thread that the upgrade tool says 'unknown router' if the F/W it is trying to upgrade you to is the same as you already have (more noddiness :D).

Is it necessary though? Is mine up to date? :confused:
v3.03t is the latest version.
