    I have a Netgear RP614 router. How can I determine which version of firmware I have so I can tell if I need to upgrade.
    :confused:

    Thanks for any assistance.

    Should be located in the Router Config.

    Lwd,

    Thanks for the response. I found it (router config). Next question. I found I have Version 4.00. On the Netgear site, I see versions 4.12, 4.14 and 4.15 available. Should I upgrade to all of them?

    (background - I've been researching for a solution to an intermittent "network cable unplugged" error message on one of my 2 computers. Last thing I tried was using a program called winsockxpfix. That didn't work either. Now I'm about to try upgrading the router firmware, which solved this problem for another person.)

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Betty

    If you think it is a problem with the router, then upgrade the firmware. You can just go to 4.15 if you want. You dont need to apply 4.12 and 4.14 before you apply 4.15. Just use the latest and greatest.
