Is Firmware Necessary?
« on: March 29, 2012, 09:51:43 pm »

Just started using my WZR-HP-AG300H got it set up and working. However WinZip won't recognize the Firmware download cause it's a .enc not .zip..


Thoughts on this? I'm probably just overlooking a really easy solution to that. So don't be afraid to say "hey dummy it's easy just do this"...


Thanks!  :)

Its not winzip you need to use for the .enc files, those are to be used from within the web interface to flash to newer (or older) firmware. If you are using dd-wrt, its in the web tab under Administration > Firmware Upgrade


And to answer the subject question, its necessary only if you want to upgrade or downgrade, most times i say if the firmware you have on there works for you then leave it be.
