    I made a previous post asking how to rollback the
    firmware on my MN500 as I've been having problems ever
    since I installed the newest update through the Broadband
    Network Utility. My question is, would rolling back the
    firmware even do anything? Did the update install a new
    firmware for the MN500 or did it only add
    fixes/patches/modifications to my system? I want to
    return to my old configuration before the update but it
    doesn't look like that's possible. Is a format the only

    The latest update (released earlier this month) didn't update the firmware
    of the MN500 (assuming you were up to date on updates prior to this recent

    The latest update did update the BNU software.

    Without knowing your issues that you are having, it is a little difficult to
    provide solutions.

    The firmware on a base station has nothing to do with whatever computer it
    might be attached to, Mike. I've set up routers here from a Tablet PC, and
    then let it run attached only to the DSL feed and the power outlet while
    using it wirelessly. No computer is physically attached to it. What issues
    are you having which cause you to want to roll back the firmware?

    Ever since I installed the update, I cannot establish a
    wireless connection with my laptop. Neither the internet
    or file sharing over the network works. Did the latest
    update install any Windows XP hotfixes that had some
    affect on wireless networking capabilities?

    What version of the MN500 firmware did you have prior to the update?

    What wireless NIC is in your laptop?
    What version of drivers is your wireless NIC using?
    What OS is your laptop using?
