Note : Netgear routers require a different method of flashing than the other routers and instructions are included in the package along with the required firmwares.

FunnelWeb is the developmental version of the ROOter firmware. It has all the features of Huntsman and new ones of its own. These features may need testing by the user in order to perfect them.

The smaller routers with only 4 meg of Flash RAM do not gain any new features with this version because of lack of memory but do have support for several new modems and some bug fixes. If you are not experiencing any problems with your Huntsman ROOter then there is no need to update to FunnelWeb.

Features of FunnelWeb for 8 meg and larger Routers

  • Automatic mounting and sharing (using Samba) of USB storage devices.
  • OpenVPN with a web interface for configuration.
  • Media Server fully compliant with DLNA/UPnP-AV clients.
  • WAN Manager to allow setting up a DSL/modem failover system and load balancing.

See this page for more information on using these new features.

MultiWeb is a completely rewritten set of Rooter scripts that are more stable and provide more modem support. This is in the early stages of development but has been extensively tested and works very well. Some features from Huntsman and FunnelWeb are missing in this version, however.

MultiWeb is designed around providing support for multiple modems running at the same time and Load Balancing is supported to manage these modems. Single modem support is also improved.

Features of MultiWeb

  • Supports multiple modems (2 by default)
  • MBIM modems are supported
  • Hostless modems now appear on the Network Status page
  • SMS has been improved
  • Scripts are more stable
  • Lock to Provider supported
  • Load Balancing of multiple modems
  • USB storage and network sharing on 8 meg routers
  • OpenVPN on 8 meg routers
  • Disconnect and Reconnect plus power toggling of modems from the web interface

For more information on using multiple modems and on Load Balancing there is a tutorial here.

Important Note : if you are upgrading from a previous ROOter version then uncheck the box marked "Keep Settings". This firmware has a different configuration set up and must be flashed without keeping your old information.

Factory Firmware

If you wish to flash your router back to the factory firmware for any reason, the images for some routers are available here.

These firmwares have been modified slightly so that they can be used to flash your router from being a ROOter to being a factory stock model. Regular factory firmware will not work for this.
