Linksys firmware upgrade for Wi-Fi routers angers some users - TechAmok

Linksys firmware upgrade for Wi-Fi routers angers some users - [briefly]
03:18 AM EDT - Jul,01 2012 - post a comment

Some users of new Wi-Fi routers from Cisco's Linksys division complained this week that the company automatically updated the routers' firmware and pushed them toward a cloud-based administration service they didn't want. Users posting on the Cisco Home Community forum and the U.K.-based site PC Gamer said they had turned on their Linksys EA3500 and EA4500 routers earlier this week and found they were running a new firmware version. The new firmware presented a login screen for the Cisco Connect Cloud instead of the LAN-based router management interface that had come up previously, they said. Some voiced concerns about the security of cloud-based LAN administration and didn't want to set up accounts on Cisco Connect Cloud. They were able to bring up a local, non-cloud management interface after disconnecting the router from the Internet, but that interface lacked most of the features they had been used to with the previous firmware, the posts said. On Friday, an administrator in the Cisco forum posted a link to official instructions for downgrading the routers' firmware to the previous, non-cloud version. Some commenters had said earlier that Cisco had sent them the old firmware when they complained. But some people on the forum had already said they were fed up and would return their routers. Linksys did not respond to a request for comment on Friday.
