Newest 7800DXL firmware?

Post by Fibre793 » Fri Mar 23, 2018 12:58 am

Hi

I recently purchased a Billion 7800DXL router to replace the 7800N I had before (I think the ADSL port blew out in a recent wind/snow storm). I noticed the router had the 2.32e-dl6 firmware, and I went to the main website to download the latest for this router, which was just marked as 2.32e.

After updating the router with the firmware I downloaded, my router now only shows 2.32e. I'm wondering if I've managed to downgrade the firmware, although I can see no signs of any newer release. I notice the dl6 version is mentioned on the forums a few times though.

I'm wondering therefore:-

1) Is 2.32e-dl6 the newest firmware and should I use it on the box?
2) What is the difference between 2.32e-dl6 and 2.32e? Is it significant?
3) Where can I download 2.32e-dl6 from? It doesn't seem to be publicly available.

If anybody could help me with this, I'd appreciate it :)

Thanks

The latest firmware is 2.32e.d6 which has the increased WAN character limit to 32 characters.

2.32e.dl6 was the firmware that resolves wireless devices unable to Ethernet devices and visa versa

You can find 2.32e.d6 on the following link viewtopic.php?f=18&t=13284

That's really helpful, I appreciate it.

Is it possible to easily tell what the latest firmwares are for future upgrades?

Are these available on the official site also? I can't see any sign that it's the case. Is there any reason for that?

Thanks

I check the following page regularly, which I assumed had the very latest firmware...

http://www.billion.uk.com/esupport/inde ... ac-7800dxl

So where is the official page with the latest firmware?

Thanks
