Western Digital has just outed a new firmware version targeted at its My Net N900 and N900 Central dual-band routers, namely the 1.07.16 package, which brings a handful of resolved issues.
The newly released version fixes the safe removal issue of the attached drives, and the Public share folder accessing problem when using Remote Access via web or mobile.
In addition, it reduces CPU overloading through an applied fix to the IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol), and resolves the iTunes server screen refresh problem when adding or deleting files.
Moreover, the DLNA displays the media files’ names correctly, the network translation feature has no problems whatsoever, and media files are now shown by the “rebuild” button.
As for installing the firmware, enter the admin and password at the login screen (type 192.168.1.1 or wdrouter in a web browser), and go to Advanced Settings → Admin → Firmware Update tab.
Now, choose the firmware file, click “Upload,” and after you select the OK button, the upgrade process will start. When it finishes (after a few minutes), the device will reboot, and that’s all.
Bear in mind that you mustn’t interrupt this process in any way, because doing so may cause damages to the device and it might not boot any more. Moreover, make sure the AC power adapter is connected during the process, and the firmware file isn’t renamed or modified.
Now that you encountered all the important aspects, follow one of the links below depending on which device you own, and download the latest firmware for your WD router.
