MiFi 4620L firmware update 3.20.11

Yesterday the Novatel MiFi 4620L received a new modem firmware update, version 3.20.11 while both the “Router FW version” and “AP FW Version” stayed the same. We’re currently checking with our Verizon contacts to see what type of impact this will have on customers. One thing we did notice is after the update the device disables USB tethering in the admin interface. So, if you use your MiFi 4620L via USB in a computer or tether via USB in a Peplink Balance router be sure to re-enable this feature otherwise you’ll lose connectivity. Aside from that little quirk everything else seems to be working fine after the update so don’t be alarmed if you see a mandatory device update on your MIFi’s LCD screen.
