Red Box Firmware V1.12 Released

We are proud to announce release of firmware version 1.12, for the Red Box wireless router and bandwidth optimiser. Please update as soon as possible.

The new firmware files and upgrade instructions can be found here:

New Features:

  • Main new enhancement is to reduce effects if the Iridium phone drops a call mid download, mainly this affects iPad (and iPhone), which can get "stuck". The same effects could of course be triggered on an ipad if you unplugged any normal broadband connection mid-download, but clearly that's far less common. We now try and force network connections to be dropped if the Iridium drops the call. Clearly the first problem to resolve is that the Iridium should NOT drop calls, but we would welcome feedback from customers if this change improves things in the unlikely event that call drops occur.
  • Fixed a race condition where sometimes the front page renders too quickly and displays BEFORE the firewall changes are updated. Sometimes with the previous release, the front page would show "success", but then stale information about the firewall status. This is resolved
