Hereabouts we do love our Gigaset cordless phones. Actually, that’s overstating the case a bit. Recent firmware releases, notably the November & December issues, have proven to be troublesome for some users. It’s tempered our enthusiasm just a little. An earlier post about Gigaset firmware developed a most impressive comment trail.
Not long ago Tony Stankus, Product Manager for Developing Technologies at Gigaset Communications, passed me a note about a new beta firmware release.
Here is the link to the Beta code to try out. It is a release candidate that will go out in 2 to 3 weeks. Copy this link into the User Defined Firmware File on the Miscellaneous tab then hit upgrade.
After the upgrade, put the normal gigaset.com/chagall back into the Data Server field.
I’m afraid that my recent level of activity has kept me from acting in this information for a couple of weeks. By now this firmware is possibly close to release. It can’t be in release yet as the A580IP base has not yet indicated that a new release is available.
It just so happens that I’m commissioning a new S675IP system for a co-workers home. This gives me the opportunity to try the new firmware in a system without imperiling the A580IP which are our home phones.
As you can see, this afternoon I have updated this system and we shall see how it behaves over the coming week.
