First and formost.. I have Gigablast. I only have a Router with a ONT and not a modem.
Your own forums cause conflicting information concerning firmware updates. one post says you don't do firmware others say you test and will push updates. I have yet to see a single firmware update since i have had the modem. this is going on over 2 years now. what is the deal?
Routers have never been updated by Cox, only modems, and you said you have a ONT instead of a modem. If you want to upgrade your router's firmware, then it is up to you. See here.
::edit:: I should have said never been AUTOMATICALLY updated through the CMTS, because there is no CMTS when you have fiber. I forgot about remote support.
So even thought the router was provided by Cox, with a special version of the firmware on it.V18.104.22.168_10.0.85COX i'm able to upgrade my firmware anyways and not lose any of my speeds?
Tech support was useless. they haven't released a new version of the firmware. the firmware version i have is over 2 years old. I'm unable to load the firmware directly from Netgear as it fails most likely from a digital signature standpoint. As I haven't researched residential routers in many moon's do you have and suggestions? Might be time to buy one i can control
No i'm not experiencing issues of that nature. I'm more concerned with KRACK and other features of the Router which aren't working properly. DDNS throws a error so fast on the screen I can't capture it.
Hey Becky, do you know what happened to my post about Smallnetbuilder? Did it get eaten by the forum bug or did a moderator remove it? Can I re-post now that a retail router is generally recommended?
Now it is back! You fixed it! Thanks
I wish I could take credit for actually doing something to fix it! LOL
