I flashed mine a few days ago and had problems. The upgrade seemed
to be successful, but most connect attempts failed. I had to flash
it several times before the router was usable, and it seems to be
OK now, but I still haven't used it enough to be sure the problems
aren't coming back.
I flashed it in the hope that the 10 minute inactive telnet session
timeouts I'd been seeing would go away, but after an initial test
which seemed positive the timeouts returned. Do you know anything
about this issue?
There was one other thing that seemed odd, but I'm going to ask
about it in a separate post, since I don't know whether this behavior
changed from the previous version.
