What is the latest firmware for the HG 659?

mine reports as
Device ID00E0FC-J3N8W14411004508
Hardware version VER.B
Software version V100R001C206B013

I'm having an issue with an older pc connected to it. With the lan conection connecting randomly @ 10mbits or 100 rather than the 1 GBIT / 100mbits that the network card supports.

My other pc connects to it fine at 1 GBIT as it should.

The 2nd pc that is having issues has an Atheros L1 gigabit ethernet 10/100/1000 card. The Driver is up todate. I've tried another cable with same results.


Any ideas? other than buy a new network card.

They like to complicate things, whats wrong with a version number like v1.25 etc with a release date, and preferably a history log :)

I see there is 2 versions

 

  • On an HG659: V100R001C227B011
  • On an HG659b: V100R001C227B018

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Can't tell if you are joking...

The HG659b is white.

The HG630b is black.
