FIRMWARE

Four ways to upgrade!

With each new firmware release, there are four alternative methods to upgrade the router. You can use a Windows PC, Apple Mac (OS X), or any other operating system or device containing a web browser. As of firmware 6.2.0, it is possible to upgrade the router without the use of computer whatsoever. It can be done directly in the router’s administration menu, allowing you to log in with a smartphone or tablet computer. The firmware will be downloaded straight from our servers using a method called Live Firmware Upgrade. Simply click and wait for it to begin the three minute upgrade process.

Oops! Something went wrong?

Should anything go wrong with your firmware upgrade (causing you to no longer being able to access the router), then use a computer to run the Rescue functionality located in the Win/OS X DOVADO Firmware Utility located below. That should get you back in business within minutes! Instruction videos are located in our video gallery.

MODEMS

Dovado continuously adds support for a growing range of USB modems for mobile broadband; everything from 4G/LTE down to 3G/2G. Use the following lists to identify whether or not your USB modem is supported, along with which features are available. 

BONUS FEATURES - limited to only certain modems. See Tables below for further details.

 

SMS: Some modems allow us to make use of the SMS capabilities within the modem. Dovado routers can put SMS to great use as an alternative way of communicating with the router in case the Internet drops. You can also receive notifications in the event of any hiccups or excessive traffic consumption. For further information, visit the relevant pages in our Features section.

 

BRIDGE MODE: This capability allows you to convert your Dovado router into a USB modem->Ethernet converter. It disables the NAT routing and acts as a bridge. This is handy for installations that already contain a router and only require a mobile broadband connection to the Internet without throwing out the existing router/firewall. For further information, visit the relevant pages in our Features section.

 

4G/LTE FREQUENCY BANDLOCKING: In the world of 4G/LTE, most operators already have multiple radio frequency groups available for you to use. The higher the frequency, the lower the cell coverage, but higher the speed. Then there are lower frequency bands which bring great coverage, yet lower speed. A USB modem holds no regard to speed and will only connect to the frequency, signal level and priority it is most comfortable with. As handovers between two different frequency groups might cause a disconnect, it is now possible to lock onto a specific frequency group. This also plays well for installations that use an external roof-mounted antenna which are directed to a cell tower. Highest possible uptime with highest possible speed. Bandlocking is also recommended as a solution to minimize radio interference with devices that operate on neighboring bands. Terrestrial Digital Video Broadcasts in Europe are available on the 800MHz band, and 4G is close by. As for the higher bands, 4G operating on 2600MHz band can impact/be impacted by household appliances that are in transmission, such as microwave ovens, cordless DECT phones, Bluetooth, WiFi, TV-repeaters, etc.

DISCONTINUED

During the lifetime of a Dovado router, firmware updates are constantly being produced for that model. Once a model has been discontinued, our firmware development resources are shifted towards the current & coming models.
