I really appreciate individuals who develop software for the benefit of the masses, but please don't be lazy about the final hurdle. I have just lost a whole Saturday of my life and kissed $80 goodbye thanks to your inability to warn users that Internet Explorer will not always download the bin file entirely. I appreciate this is IE's fault and not yours, but the issue has been reported to you and you did nothing to warn others about it. Sadly I only discovered the thread warning users of this after I had suffered the same problem. In that same thread you said you could protect the file to prevent partial downloading, but you didn't do it. Please, if you can't correct the problem, then at least add a warning to the sticky about the firmware.

I hope this helps any new users - folks, download the firmware upgrade from Firefox or Chrome and then check it is 1,256KB and not less than that before you do anything else.

v.v. angry and sad

we've zipped up the file, so there should be some protection now against this.

A short file will not unzip.
