EtherLINQ Firmware Downloads

Firmware releases for the EtherLINQ are cumulative - you only need to install the latest version to upgrade from any previous firmware version. See the information below or refer to Appendix A.6 of the EtherLINQ User's Guide for information on how to install firmware updates.

Upgrading from firmware releases prior to 5.2.4 will ERASE some current EtherLINQ configuration settings.
Export your current configuration file before upgrading, then re-import the configuration file to prevent loss of settings.
For more information see Section 14.2 of the EtherLINQ User's Guide
