We have about 75 MT Routers running 2.8.21-26 on them. We have major problems upgrading them whenever we need to.
The problem is:
When we put the following packages (advanced tools, routing, security, system, wireless) onto the router with FTP or the upgrade tool, about 25% of the time security and wireless don't get installed. As you can imagine this make upgrading 75 routers a HUGE pain in the butt. I have sent supout.rif files to MT in the past and they tell me that the security and wireless packages weren't uploaded. This is NOT true, and the automatic upgrade tool, pulls the needed packages from a router containing all the packages.
Has anyone else seen this problem? THe solution is to hike into a forest through the snow to use the ethernet cable to manually upload the packages missing and reboot again. After you have the packages actually on the router you need to restore a backup file, as all the settings are missing.
If MT could fix this problem we would not need to take 3 days to upgrade our routers, and I could do it from home.
Again, has anyone else seen this problem? I have been seeing this problem since 2.8.0. We use routerboard 230s and some intel based motherboards.
