Hi, I am new to this forum and wonder if I can obtain your help and advice on the above router.
I have had this router for a few years and never needed to update the firmware. However, I have had a home server connected for over a year but find that I cannot "loopback" to the server from my local lan, ie remote access out to the internet and back in. Having scanned the forums here it would seem that this problem has been resolved by a firmware update. The firmware on my router at the moment is WZR-HP-G300NH ver 1.73 (R1.02/B1.07).
My question is this. If I update the firmware via the router online option, will this cure the problem? Also, if so, will this invalidate the settings I already have on the router, ie Static IP Addresses and portforwarding, and wireless connection keys?
Any help would be most appreciated.
