TG582n DSL Firmware

Hi guys,
Is there any chance someone can provide the latest firmware for the TG582n?
I have seen a few posts here and there on the forum but I'm currently experiencing a few issues with my connection (already logged) and I don't have another router to test so I want to see if a firmware update helps at all - its the DSL version of the firmware I need (if its any different to the fibre firmware)
Can I also please have a link to the flashing software (as I don't think there's an option on the GUI?)
I'm currently on firmware version 8.4.4.J
On another note - has anyone tried DD-WRT on this router?  Its not officially supported so I don't want to brick it but it will be interesting if someone has given it a go!
Thanks
Ian

Re: TG582n DSL Firmware

Chris,
Is there also a chance you could send me the release notes on the new firmware?  It will be nice to nosey though it.
Im pretty certain my issues are wifi related now - I have just got a laptop home from work as my macbook doesn't have a LAN port and the PS3 is also dropping out (not sure why as its wired up to the router) but the laptop seems to be behaving much better than both other devices so I feel a little silly raising a fault now.
I wont ask the question there but probably create another post on some wifi advice!
Thanks

Re: TG582n DSL Firmware

Spot on - Thanks Chris!
I see a few more options on there which is nice, I find that this router is actually quite good and functions wise, powerful but Technicolor seem to have omitted most configuration settings - if it was in the GUI, it would be on par with a draytek!
One more thing, I asked on another post whether my upload could be un-capped but I don't think its been spotted - is there any chance you can look into this for me or should I log a call for this?
Again - Thank you very much!

Well that perhaps explains the improved stability I've seen with the upgraded firmware:

    Hmm,
    Can anyone think of any reason why the think broadband monitor is showing so many dropped packets in the early morning (I never use my connection at this time)?
    Here is my IPv4 graph with the same result...

    Interesting it would be, if, for the most part,  I had a Masters in Sinoserbocrat Estonian Grin
    Oh that in internet layman's terms, someone would explain the benefits of upgrading from 8.4.4.J for the relativley unsophisticated user.
    No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

    Re: TG582n DSL Firmware

    A few wifi improvements:

    • Better auto channel choice (better than just counting the number of other wifi networks per channel)

    • Max 11n speed increased from 130Mbps to 144Mbps

    • A couple of other improvements for a stronger / more reliable signal


    The vast number of IPv6 related changes are not currently relevant to the casual user.

    @ Matt Taylor
    If there are no likely problems, can you upgrade me too? Thanks.
