Hitron CGN Series
i just got the new firmware 22.214.171.124T6 and i am trying to disable the WMM(QOS) settings but it won't allow me, is there a workaround on it or we can't do anything about it.
hi @FidoNick thanks for the reply. i tried that already but it is like grayed out and it only stays on, though there is no error message but it will just not slide to the "off" option.
So Fido team, with all these firmware upgrades, has the issue of 2.4Ghz instability fixed? I'm asking about it because I'm struggling with 2.4Ghz instability. Despite of all the efforts to use different channels and wifi standards (802.11 g/n and even b) etc., on times the connectivity becomes unusable. While all other devices I have are on 5Ghz (and working perfectly), I'm stuck with 2.4Ghz due to my Smart TV (and can't use Ethernet due to location)
Is some internal discussion going on regarding 2.4Ghz and how to make it stable? Any new firmware in the queue?
Model details are:
CODA-4582U running 126.96.36.199T6
I've noticed some stability improvements since having this firmware installed. Since my spouse moved in, there has been an increase in connected devices, and the added traffic was causing some problems. It's possible that the firmware update has helped with this.
After having spent some time with the Firmware, I have noticed something particularly quirky about it, though this seems to have also been the case before getting the update.
Whenever I use my Xbox One, there seem to be intermittant service slowdowns when using other devices. Oddlye nough, some of these slowdowns only occur whenever I have the Xbox connected via Ethernet. Oddly enough, when it is connected via WiFi, such slowdowns are not present. Keep in mind that the integrity of the ethernet cable is fine; I have tried using different ports, and found that this is only really an issue with the Xbox. Other devices connected via Ethernet have not caused this issue. Any ideas?
Welcome to the Community
I'm not sure what you're referring to here, would it be possible to give us more info? Is that information you got through your VPN provider?
Also, are you using an additional router with the Hitron CGN3AMF Fido Wi-Fi Modem?
Let me know!
This malware infect a lot of routers. I am not sure if CGN3AMF is affected or anything we should do.
VPNFilter primarily infects by taking advantage of known generic default credentials.
The default password used by the AMF is specific to our gateways and the Easy Connect flow then forces this password to become unique to the device so the AMF is not exposed to this vulnerability.
Hope this helps
My modem was updated with the 188.8.131.52T5 firmware yesteday midnight. From the log, it showed the firmware started to download at 11:51pm. It took about 8 minutes and then rebooted at midnight. I lost internet connection for about 3-4 minutes and that's it. So far so good. Thank you.
