VPN Issues with O2 Wireless Box II - Firmware Download
I wrote an article in April 2010 about VPN Issues with O2 Wireless Box II and it has come to my attention that O2 are now putting firmware version 188.8.131.52 on their routers which is supposed to resolve these VPN issues. Apparently this is not always the case and O2 are no longer downgrading the firmware because it is "fixed" in the 184.108.40.206 version. Some people are finding it difficult to get any support, and the O2 CD which you can download no longer has the older 220.127.116.11 firmware.
Fear not though... I did a little digging around and managed to located the 18.104.22.168 firmware (RT-585v7_74K4EJ.exe) and I have upload it for you.
Just remember and disable O2's ability to come in an auto-upgrade you otherwise it will not be long till you are be back to square one.
