Firmware 7.0 Invaild Image


#1

System Info SURF_SOLO_CSEC Serial Number 2831-XXXX-C582 Current Firmware 6.3.3 build 2252. I received the e-mail regarding Firmware 7. Went and down loaded fw-surf_soho-7.0.0-build2445.bin. When I went to update the firmware I get a message Error :Invalid frimware image. Tried several times and results were the same. Am I doing something wrong?

Based on the serial number you have a hardware version 1 Surf SOHO, and firmware 7 is not compatible with that model. Only on version 2 or 3 can you upgrade to fw 7.

Kevin - So my backup Surf SOHO serial number 2830-XXXX-14EE which above this serial number says Hardware Reversion on is also NOT compatible with firmware 7
