Firmware Version 2.0.13_2.0.15 for North America users only

* Only for WGT624v4 - Do not use on earlier versions of WGT624 (v1,v2,v3)

New Features & Fixes:

* Fix Motorola 2210 modem PPPoE connection established failure issue.

Known Issues:

1. Setup wizard and Smart wizard detects the WAN type to be PPPoE if the WAN connects to TNCI ADSL gateway, actually it should be DHCP.
Workaround: Do not use setup wizard or smart wizard to configure WAN setting if you have TNCI ADSL gateway. Please set the WAN setting manually in the basic setting page.
2. The LAN-WAN conflict can’t work under PPTP WAN connection type.
Workaround: Remove the Ethernet cable on the WAN port and change the LAN IP segment and address manually different from WAN IP segment.
3. Smart wizard web GUI redirect function doesn’t work well if it detects LAN-WAN IP conflict under DHCP.
Workaround: Please refresh the browser if you use routerlogin url to open router web GUI. If not, please use www.routerlogin.net, www.routerlogin.com, “routerlogin.net”, “routerlogin.com” urls to open router web GUI.
4. Router does not detect port conflict between port forwarding and port triggering.
Workaround Please change it manually, because the automatically detection doesn’t work.
5. When the WGT624v4 is set to WDS repeater and it is not associated to any base station, then those wireless clients can not find this WGT624v4 repeater.
Workaround: The WGT624v4 base station must be used with a WGT624v4 WDS repeater to work correctly, different models will not support this function.
