    We finally made it – v1.20 for TORONTO-N is now available for download. Although it took longer than we expected. The main feature included in this update is the addition of automated firmware update. Once you install this version, you no longer need to come back here to check for new updates. You can enter your email in the System Settings page Flash New Firmware section and we’ll notify you by email when a new version is available. You can then install the new version by clicking the “Check for Updates” button.

    Changes included in this release:

    1. Email notification of new firmware and automated firmware update.
    2. Added functions to recognize devices connected through a repeater.
    3. Fix error message for Dynamic DNS log in failure when special characters are used.
    4. Fix bug where Calendar buttons disappear when parental control is disabled for the default profile.
    5. Bug fix for router login with an empty space.
    6. Various minor improvements.

    If something goes wrong (for example, parental control configuration messed up etc.), you’ll need to restore your settings and try the above steps again.

    Here’s how to restore your settings:

    Great, I appreciate the update.


    Thanks for the update. When I did ours, it did forget the Key to our wireless. Restoring the backup did not help this, and in fact the back up didn’t have the wireless section at all!! Fortunately, I had backed it up again after the update (before I knew there was a problem) and restoring that brought the Wireless settings back so I could just put our key in again, and all is well.

    I greatly appreciate the router, thanks for your continuing work on it.


    @thepaintedtiger Glad to hear that everything worked out in the end, and thanks for the feedback. What was your firmware version before the upgrade?


    Whatever was on it, we purchased it in November.
