Hi. I wanted to upgrade my x86 firmware to the latest beta version due to recent WPA2 security flaws. I did the original installation almost 2 years ago and haven't upgraded it since. When I go to download the latest beta version, I see there are many different versions available ftp://ftp.dd-wrt.com/betas/2017/10-17-2017-r33525/x86/
How do I know which one to download? As it's been almost 2 years since I did the installation I don't remember the exact version I downloaded, and how are those webupgrade versions different? Are those the ones I would need to use via the web interface (Administration-Firmware Upgrade)? I don't see anything specifying my current version on the status page beyond it's current firmware version: DD-WRT v3.0-r28417 std (12/03/15)
Any assistance on making sure I get the correct file and to not accidentally break the router would be appreciated. Thanks.
