I have a Spark UFB connection with the HG659b modem; trying to port-forward to a server internally but am having intermittent issues with it working. I'm interested in the general opinion of those much wiser than me.
1. Should I persist with this model of router (e.g. try and get replacement from Spark first)? or try something else.
2. If something else? any suggestions of what is robust for a SME where I can port-forward reliably.
I'm pretty sure it is not a configuration issue, as one minute the port-forwarding works, then it doesn't, then I reboot the modem and it sometimes works again. No configuration changes to the server, and I can connect to the server reliably internally.
I'm a bit dubious about simply getting a replacement; as there seem to be some people alluding to this being a bit of a known issue on this model of modem. I have also looked for a firmware upgrade, but there don't appear to be any links on the Spark site I can find.
If not a replacement of that model, is there something else that I can purchase that is going to be more reliable? Do Spark support other modems connected to UFB?
