WR850G and WR850GP

Firmware Release Notes

Version 6.1.4

Compatibility

• The features in this release are compatible with both the WR850G and WR850GP Wireless Broadband Routers.

• Release 6.1.4 is compatible with all hardware versions

Changes in Release 6.1.4 (Relative to Releases 2.x, 3.x, 4.x, and 5.x)

• AP (access point) mode – supports five Ethernet ports

• HTML help – this is now a pop-up tool

• STP (spanning tree protocol) – this is now user config- urable

• Default SSID (service set identifier) – the factory

default setting for SSID includes the complete 12-digit MAC address

• WMM™ (Wi-Fi® Multimedia) – supported

• AP isolation – supported

• Multicast Rate settings – supported

• Parental Controls – a subset of these settings are now configured on the Filters configuration page

WPA2™ (Wi-Fi Protected Access version 2) – support-

ed

Connection Logging via Syslog Service – this has

replaced URL (uniform resource locator) Log support

• LED functions – the Power LED does not blink when a

firmware update is in progress. (See “How to Upgrade” for details.) The WAN (wide area network) LED no longer blinks red when it has lost its IP connection to its default gateway, or when the WAN connection repair procedure is still in progress. When the Wireless LED is off, the wireless interface is not enabled by the firmware (no longer displays red.) Also, when this LED is blinking, the wireless interface is enabled and active wireless traffic is present. The Wireless LED does not blink on WR850G V1 hardware. Refer to the WR850G/GP User Guide for a complete description of LED functions.

• User Interface (UI) – User interface of Web-based con-

figuration utility realigned to support direct access to

major functions (WAN interface, LAN interface, wireless interface, and advanced routing features). Refer to Tables 1 and 2 in this document to quickly locate renamed and new features in the UI.

Known Limitations When you upgrade to 6.x, the factory default configuration settings are restored to your system. You will need to customize your configuration settings using the Configuration pages. Refer to “How to Configure the WR850” after the upgrade procedure is completed.

Before You Upgrade This is the work flow you should follow to prepare to upgrade the WR850G/GP:

A. Print out the current configuration settings

Before you upgrade, it is highly recommended that you print out the current configuration settings of your current firmware version so that configuration is easier to follow. To access and print the Web-based configuration pages of versions 2.x, 3.x, 4.x or 5.x, follow the steps in “To access the Web-based configuration pages,” then print out the pages and return to this section.

B. Back up the old configuration file

Before you upgrade, back up your current version’s config.bin file according to instructions supplied with that version.

C. Obtain the WR850G/GP User Guide for complete infor-

mation about version 6.x You may want to have the user guide handy as you upgrade the unit. It contains complete information regarding each configuration parameter. You can download the User Guide from:

http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/support/default.asp

D. Download the Conversion Utility

A conversion utility is supplied to make it easy for you to map the old configuration file parameters to the new parameter locations in version 6.x configuration screens. You can download the conversion utility from the same link shown in step C. Be sure to save it to your hard drive.

E. Run the Conversion Utility

Run this utility to generate a text file that shows where the current configuration parameters are to be entered in the version 6.x configuration screens.

Configuring the WR850G/GP These release notes provide steps to reconfigure the basic security and other settings so that you can get your system running securely. These basic settings appear in white on the configuration pages of the user interface. This document also provides a comprehensive mapping table of parameters so that you can find the newly named corresponding parameters from previous versions. New parameters have also been added for Version 6.x.

How to Configure the WR850 After you complete the upgrade procedure, you can custom configure the WR850 and its associated devices. Procedures are provided for the commonly used options only. Refer to the “WR850 Wireless Broadband Routers (WR850GP and WR850G) User Guide” for complete information.

Refer to Table 1 in this update to locate configuration parameters in previous versions (2x through 5.x) that have been renamed or moved to new configuration pages in version 6.x. Refer to Table 2 in this update for new

parameters in version 6.x. Be sure to click Apply before you exit the current page, or the changes you entered will be lost.

the Pre-Shared Key (PSK) method.

Notes: 1) The next option (step 4) is dimmed unless WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK is Enabled. 2) For optimum security, the same authentication and encryp- tion methods (step 4) should be used for the WR850 and all devices with which it will communicate. However, multiple methods can be used. For example, WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK can be enabled concurrently to support devices with mixed capabilities. Refer to “Authentication Methods” in Section 3 in the user guide for details.

4 In the WPA Encryption encryption method:
