I noticed there is a new version of firmware V23 available for the Spark HG630b modem. However, there is no change log.

 

Does anyone know what are changes in V23 and is it worth upgrading the firmware? I am currently on V22 of the firmware.

It used to be on Spark's web site easily found using search. Spark re-organised the page and now the URL is embedded in a PDF file:

 

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjH9baAwsfXAhVBNpQKHRpzAFQQFggsMAE&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.spark.co.nz%2Fcontent%2Fdam%2Ftelecomcms%2Fmodems%2F34347%2520-%2520HG630b.Firmware.Update_167E.pdf&usg=AOvVaw27bs-lSsIqDsl5uk_Pw22D

 

 

 

I bite the bullet and installed the update about a month ago. Did not notice any difference as I was using it as a modem only.

That link no longer works. I did a thorough search of Spark and Google. Seems they have removed all firmware downloads for all their modems. Not sure what that is all about?

 

 

 

I'd be delighted if anyone has the URL for the current firmware (also HG659)
