New Firmwware released version WNDR4500-V126.96.36.199_1.0.40Bug Fixes & Enhancements:[Fixed]: JP SKU PPPoE issue.[Fixed]: Time Machine WOL issue.[Fixed]: Russia PPTP issue.--David Mozer IT-Expert on Call Information Technology for Home and Business
I just installed the new firmware and I've noticed a more stable connection. I have the SB6121 modem but did not exerience any issues as noted above. Infact I thought the 188.8.131.52 version was awful.
v.20 does indeed apparently fix the random WOL packet issue. My machines no longer start up.However, I cannot wake them from the outside world with this router. With my old Linksys 54G and HyperWRT it was never a problem forwarding the port 9 packet.Netgear politely says it's my problem and directs me to how to setup the machine for WOL. Which is not the issue. I can wake up any of them internally using several different WOL utilities.Has anyone had ANY success waking up their machines from the outside world with NetGear's WNDR4500?Thanks in advance.
I have not tried to use WOL remotely ... so i suggest that you may need to open port 9 to allow the magic packet through.Have you tried to contact Netgear to get their take on the subject?
