Not the first time that this has happened, but often there are hard-coded links to the "right" version of firmware to install on the device pages. This can lead to users installing an "ancient" version and running into all kinds of problems, or not being aware that they are running outdated firmware at all.
As per hw compatibility table, I installed Barrier Breaker 14.07 on a Netgear DG834GT.
Any thoughts on how this information could be kept up to date, short of hand-editing every device's page?
Normally I would have already added datatables to the devicepage, showing the same data as in the ToH, but during my last big devicepage edit-session (June/July?), knowing that 16MB RAM devices are somewhat doomed, I set priorities to devices with more than 16MB RAM.
In this specific case, I agree with assessment that current versions would likely be non-operable on that device.
I agree that keeping up with the more likely functional devices over the ones that are marginal is a good prioritization.
To address this kind of challenge, would it make sense to have an even stronger set of warnings around devices that don't even meet the 4/32 level?
I think that the ToH may be doing a disservice to potential non-expert users in even remotely recommending devices that are likely to have problems running current, supported releases
I chose [the DG834GT] based on the hardware compatibility table and the wiki page for the dg834gt ( that says officially 10.03 backfire is the last officially supporte by dg834gt, but 14.07 should work too, as it actually does as per my experience).
