Can I ask what the advantages are of the new Firmware as I understand I have to flatten the device and reconfigure it from scratch.
Thanks
Jon

If you are on firmware d36 and upwards you don't need to upgrade the device with factory default settings (you can select the Current Settings option on the firmware upgrade page), the release notes (advantages) for the firmware are listed above
