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?
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
