I do NOT see a Firmware upgrade for the Pepwave Surf On The Go. My unit shows it has: Version: 1.0.26 (build:1260)
Date: 2015-06-02. When I click “Online Firmware Check” I’m told “Your Firmware is up to date”? REALLY??? Firmware that’s almost TWO YEARS OLD is “Up to date”? I tried to respond to the email Pepwave sent today telling me that new firmware WAS available. My reply was bounced back. Looks lake Pepwave DOESN’T want to be bothered.

You can download firmware version 1.0.30 at the Surf OTG download page here:

Our team will look into why it is not showing up as you described.

My 580 says 6.3.1 build 1631 it also does not show the new 7.0.2, I was able to manually download and install.

What’s the patch timeline for the AP One AC Mini? I don’t see that one listed here.


AP’s were not affected by this, only products that had Wi-Fi as WAN capability.

Hello Pepplink Team,
When will this be available through InControl2 Earth & Mars servers please?

Appreciate your assistance,
Marcus :slight_smile:

Download site and IC2 has same firmware release. The screenshot shows you are checking on Balance One which is not a affected by this issue, therefore 7.0.3 is not required for Balance One. And the latest firmware of the units without Wi-Fi WAN are still 7.0.2 or 6.3.4.

I do not see anything for MAX BR1 LTE - is there updated firmware for that device (it is what I have)?

MAX BR1 LTE is part of MAX BR1 family, so you may look for MAX BR1 at the firmware download page. Do take note to select the firmware that match your unit Hardware Revision.

How do I find out the Hardware Revision? I have looked at the unit and also the WebAdmin and all it indicates is BR1 LTE.

Hi @chiliman,

You can find the hardware version from the Web Admin - Status Page, as shown below.

How should I ask a related question about this topic

I am guessing that I should reply with my question.
I have a Surf AP 400 and I do not see that model in the firmware update lists. Should I worry, is a patch on the way, or must I dump the hardware to be safe?

That is an EOL model and there is no more support for it. The current model is the Surf On The Go. Thanks
