I currently refurbish wireless home routers and resell them. I would like to know if I should enhance my testing process by upgrading the router to the latest firmware in order to avoid customer returns.

If I factory reset the router then upgrade it to the latest firmware will the customer who purchases the router have the same version of the firmware? Is the firmware downloaded into the router or is it hosted on the computer?
 
What firmware the customer gets depends on who vendor he's buying from, old stock?

U make it sound like by selling hardware with already updated firmware is a value added proposition. Am actually not so sure about that. People are cheapskates, they just buy the cheapest listed, nobody specify "comes with firmware blah-blah" anyway. people tend to be overly optimistic what they can do, if they can but it $5 cheaper and DIY the update, that's what they will do.
