Router RV042 Upgrade to older firmware & what is Version 1, 2, 3

We have a CISCO RV042.  We are about to begin a VIOP service with Vocalocity who state:

The RV042 is a wired router that requires no configuration adjustments for the firmware versions we tested.    NOTE: Version 1 and 2 are compatible. Version 3 is NOT.  Firmware Reviewed: 1.3.12.6 | 1.3.12.19

Our router's firmware is :    1.3.8.2 (Feb 12 2007 10:43:08)

Can we upgrade to 1.3.12.6 or 1.3.12.19?  What is meant by Version 1, 2 and 3?

Hi David, V1 2 and 3 are the hardware versions of the router released. From the best I can tell the 1.3.13.02 is the last release for the V01 routers.

If you look on the bottom of the router, a version 2 or 3 will say "RV042 V02" or "RV042 V03". Id it doesn't say a "V" You have a version 1 hardware. But to answer your question, yes, if you're using the 1.3.8.2 then you can use either the 1.3.12.6 or 1.3.12.19.

Thanks Tom.  Now you will see what a newbie I am.

If I understand, the router I have is probably Version 1 based on the firmware number being 1.3.8.2. Further, the firmware tested by Vocalocity is also on a Version 1 router based on the tested firmware numbers of 1.3.12.6 and 1.3.12.19.  This being the case, I probably have a compatible router as it is.

Did I get that right?

If you look on the bottom of the router, a version 2 or 3 will say "RV042 V02" or "RV042 V03". Id it doesn't say a "V" You have a version 1 hardware. But to answer your question, yes, if you're using the 1.3.8.2 then you can use either the 1.3.12.6 or 1.3.12.19.
