My router updated yesterday, so far my IOS and OSX devices are happier with the wifi than they were previously...

Yes but no were as much as now, re booted router this morning @ 9.04 have had 8 error seconds and 36 xmas port scan attacks from different ip adreesses.

I'm also seeing quite a lot of the scans --

-- but just assumed that it was the usual noise.


One thing that I have noticed is that my MacBook sometimes takes up to a minute to get an IP address assigned (both wifi and Ethernet) when waking from sleep.

Also, not sure if this is related, but when I run virtual Windows machines within vmware fusion I'm having a few problems with netwowk connectivity that I hadn't seen before.

Lots of xmas port attacks just shows you the routers firewall is working fine. Nothing to worry about.


Could someone please send me the 2.04t rom please as i need it badly.


All my wireless devices are a pain in the arse to connect to my 2870. All iphones and android devices in this house won't reconnect to the router after they have been out of range.


So i need this update badly cause i'm sick now of having to reboot my router/devices to reconnect.


xmas port scans, just turn of logging in the router, it can 'lock up' the router in extreme cases with logging enabled.


dont have a firmware download link, sorry.
