2. Stronger Web UI password/Securit Key (new devices)
3. Improved connection in 3G/4G areas
4. Improved handoff performance in 3G/4G areas
5. Improved VPN stability
6. Enhanced device capability to use USB power to extend battery life
7. Added device capability to support delivery of future software OTA
There is release date has not been revealed for this firmware update. Some say it will be on 11/1...
It looks like this firmware update will not be forced like the previous update. We can download and install this one when we are ready to do so.
The current firmware version is 2.16.
The new firmware version of 2.23 is available as of this morning.
The direct download link to the firmware update can be found here:
The software had difficulty moving forward after I connected my USB cable. This is probally because it takes a few moments for the MiFi to shutdown its broadcast before it will accept the update and I was too hasty. I left my USB Cable plugged into my laptop and relaunched the installation and was successful on my 2nd attempt. The whole process took around 10 minutes to complete.
A few changes I have noticed on the new firmware:
1. It looks like the "Global" setting under WWAN preferred mode has been reworded. Now the option displays as "LTE/CDMA"
2. The Firmware Update button on the home page is no longer available. There appears to be a new Software Update page tucked under the Advanced menu to replace this feature.
This update managed to "brick" my device as well.
My device shows a 4 bar/ -50 RSSI EVDO signal available, but will not connect to it.
The diagnostics page simply says "EVDO connection failed" whenever I attempt to connect.
Guess I have a replacement 4510L on the way overnight courtesy of Verizon's tech support.
Downloaded and installed the update last night - I'll be cautiously optimistic and say it looks like it might have solved the disconnection issue. I have remained connected all day today (so far)... it also seems to have fixed the time issue - the clock is now correct instead of being in a time zone many miles west of the Pacific coast!
It installed fine for me ...
I'm bricked too. I wonder if it's a particular update host? I updated from a Mac, did the others that brick also use the Mac update? Did those that work use a PC?
There are others over on the EVDOforums with the same problem. I had to have my ticket escalated to Verizon network support...which can take 2-3 days for a response. Level 2 tech support guy said they weren't even notified of 2.23 udapte.
