Important Notices
  • PepVPN Firmware Compatibility Change: Devices running Firmware 7 will only form PepVPN connections with devices running Firmware 6.1 or later. Firmware 6.0 or earlier are deprecated.
  • Firmware Downgrade is Unavailable for the BR1, BR1 ENT, BR1 Slim, and Transit: Please note that once Firmware 7 is installed on those, it will not be possible to downgrade to Firmware 6 or below. Dual-boot with older Firmware is still supported, but each Firmware slot will not accept earlier Firmware once it contains Firmware 7.
  • After Partitioning a MediaFast Router, Running Previous Firmware will completely Clear the Cache: Please note that once you create partitions on any MFA router, running 6.3.3 or below will cause the router to clear the entire cache.
  • Web Blocking Categories have been Updated: Firmware 7 uses updated lists for the “pornography” and “update sites” categories in web blocking.
