R212 Firmware Upgrade

SOLVED

Thank for the file. I have downloaded it but the password 'Vodafone' for the zip file does not work.

 

Incidently the file sent looks like it's v3.5, where as on my device I have v3.1 so hopefully (once I am able to unzip it) this helps!

Give it a shot, it should work. My device is on this current version and seem to be fine

Many thanks for the update.

 

One question though, excuse me if it sounds rude/facetious, whatever...

 

if there is a firmware update available that rectifies problems [to be confirmed], why is it not listed on the pages you guys link to above?

 

Total madness... you've clearly wasted loads of your customers time...

Password is actually vodafone all lowercase.

I still have the same problem, it pops up with a "wifi connection window" that links to the ZTE/Voda router admin page. Same problem I have always had with OSX and iOS.

 

Thank you for some absolutely awful customer support vodafone. Bloomin useless.

 

For the record, I tried to get detailed upgrade instructions out of Vodafone for a year, only after this conversation have they sent me the actual info [you need the mobile app installed for the firmwar upgrade to work].

 

I'd swear if it was allowed, but instead, I'll just give up. Anyone want to buy an R212, with only minor personality problems?

I also got the email, thanks for the effort Ellie.

 

Unfortunately, the firmware version is the same as I already have on the device, the same firmware which I downloaded last Sept, nearly a year ago. I'm going to recommend the company replace all vodafone mobile broadband devices with devices that work properly and have proper support, I've wasted too much time on such a simple problem.

I e got an idea, why don't you guys replace our faulty units? That'd make more sense to me, seeing as paid for this unit.

I can see that Ellie sent the latest software version available at present.

 

If that has not helped, all I can suggest it waiting for future releases.

Hello

Regarding this issue, could you please assist with the link for firmware upgrade?

I'm also looking for dashboard that is preinstaled on the r212 with the drivers as I'm having issues with the device.

Thanks in advance for your help.

 

Kind regards

Please can you provide me with the link too?

 

And I need the link to the firmware not the mobile connect software.

 

Many Thanks

It sounds more like the device is faulty, but I’ll be more than happy to send the firmware to your email address to try.

Hi Matt_B,

 

I am having a similar problem with the R212 modem and struggling to find a download of the firmware. Please will you forward the firmware upgrade for the Vodafone Mobile WiFi modem R212 to my registered email address?

 

Thanks,

Michael
