Sorry if this has been discussed before.
I have a Netopia 3347-02-1006 on ATT in California.
Software Release 7.8.1r2_u
That is a Bellsouth release, and I am not in Bellsouth. I ordered this one myself. It's working, but it's got a few irritating quirks. It won't stay in expert mode, for instance.
There is another version posted on Netopia's site.
But I am not sure that is really newer and I didn't find release notes that mentioned what changes were made to see if they affect me. well, I did find them here but none that mention this 7.8 version at all. They are here:
»www.netopia.com/support/hardware ··· ion.html
And their firmware site
»www.netopia.com/equipment/purcha ··· ate.html
has maybe some other versions and some scary warnings. It also doesn't mention this version.
Let me just say I am very familiar with this router, I manage two networks with these and both have servers, pinholes, and a significant setup. They are all working but none of those have the irritating quirks this Bellsouth version has.
Do I dare reflash this, or should I leave it alone?
