This malware infect a lot of routers. I am not sure if CGN3AMF is affected or anything we should do.

 

Thanks.

Re: FEEDBACK THREAD - Fido Home Internet Firmware Trial

Hey @athel10,

 

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 Smiley

Re: FEEDBACK THREAD - Fido Home Internet Firmware Trial

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.

Re: FEEDBACK THREAD - Fido Home Internet Firmware Trial

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?

Re: FEEDBACK THREAD - Fido Home Internet Firmware Trial

Is IPv6 still not enabled? The pinned posting for the new firmware (Model: CGN3AMF)  says that IPv6 is enabled by default but since being pushed 4.5.8.38T5 no IPv6 addressing seems to be taking place and online IPv6 tests show I'm only connecting via v4.

Re: FEEDBACK THREAD - Fido Home Internet Firmware Trial

i just got the new firmware 2.0.10.36T6 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.
