Updating firmware on linksys
A new firmware version is often available to fix bugs or to add security measures.
For instance, if a security flaw is found in a router, a new version of firmware might be available in order to reduce the risk of the security flaw being exploited.
While the exact nature of the flaw being exploited is not yet known, early speculation is that the issue could be related to components using the home network administration protocol (HNAP).
SANS noted that E1200 routers with the latest 2.0.06 firmware version seemed to be immune to the spotted attacks, but the E1000s – which are no longer supported – were not, even with the most recent firmware installed.
I purchased a Kindle Fire last week and it works fine at work, at restaurants, etc. Some of the KF discussions I've been following suggest updating the router's firmware so the KF will recognize and connect to it.
I use the router at home with no problems (we had a desktop and a laptop using it; now just the laptop).
Using outdated or corrupt Linksys drivers can cause system errors, crashes, and cause your computer or hardware to fail.
Furthermore, installing the wrong Linksys drivers can make these problems even worse.
