Added bandwidth monitor app to track bandwidth usage for each connected device.
Enhancements for compatibility between parental control and UDP port forwarding.
Added system configuration restore option to restore only parental control settings. This is helpful when you need to migrate parental control settings between different router models.
Renamed “Parental Control” to “Access Control”.
Enhanced Internet logging function to log the first 15 bytes sent over a new connection.
Added option to allow/block TCP/UDP ports.
Added functionality to temporarily extend WiFi time without changing WiFi schedule.
Fixed a bug where network configurations are wiped out when there are a large number of named devices.
Fixed bug in Internet Settings where custom DNS settings cannot be deleted.
Upgraded WiFi driver for TORONTO-N.
Have your configuration backup ready. Create a backup of your current configuration file, if you don’t have one.
Click the “Check for Updates” button in the System Settings page. Follow the instructions to upgrade.
After successful upgrade, create a new router settings backup file from the System Settings page and save it in a safe place.
Important Note for TORONTO-N: Your current configuration might be wiped out during this upgrade because of the WiFi driver upgrade. Use the “Restore Backup” button in the System Settings page to restore only parental control settings. Then manually reconfigure your WiFi settings.
Love the new and long-due features, but am totally disgusted by losing all my years of configuration changes (smart home, profiles, calendars, etc.). Just want to chuck the thing in the trash at this point.
I highly suggest putting a huge warning at the beginning (not end) of any FW update notification email and FW update description if an update will overwrite a current configuration. Better yet, pop up a dialog box that warns the user and offers to make a backup of the configuration BEFORE any FW update.
@richardgv You can use the System Settings page to restore most of your settings (check the “Access Control Only” box in the popup, which is checked by default). Then you need to manually update your WiFi settings.
Not sure if I bricked by router. I did not see the warning about the update losing settings and did not have a backup of my settings, hence nothing to load. During the update, I was met with a webpage with three lines of semi-cryptic code. I went back to factory settings and still cannot access the Internet with the router (I’m running off the modem right now.)
Looks like I’ll be rolling back to an earlier firmware if possible.
@pullmanite Can you connect to the router by WiFi or by wire? Can you access the router management page with http://192.168.10.1 or http://pcwrt.lan? If yes, please send a screenshot of the Status page to [email protected]. If no, please take a picture of the router after it’s fully powered up and sent it. We’ll help you resolve the issue.
The issue seemed to resolve itself this evening after several hours. Not sure what happened, but it cleared itself up. I was able to connect directly to the cable modem but could not get a wired or WiFi connection from the router.
