I hope you briefed the press about this. I'd hate to see an article in the tech section of the paper about "remote backdoors" allowing complete remote control of people's modems, banking and internet browsing history.

What are we actually talking about here, the Vodafone router, or the black modem (ONT thing) that the physical coaxial cable goes into?

Huh? Black modem? You are on FibreX right?

 

We are talking about the grey TC4400 cable modem used for fibreX.

You right, yes its dark grey (should have gone to specsavers). I was confused. Some of the comments above talk about not being able to login to the modem etc.. This does not make sense to me the modem is not a layer3 device. I guess some folk are confusing router with modem.

I feel the Technicolor TC4400 is flawed and I am not sure this update is designed to address that. I recall the nightmare the Technicolor ADSL Modems Spark used to supply they were horrible, come to think of it I am sure one of the issues those things had was constant drop outs that required reboots. They also over heated a lot.

Incorrect, we are talking about the modem - you used to be able to access it's web ui on http://192.168.100.1, you couldn't do much other than view stats about the error rate though:

Mine gets extremely hot. I actually got hold of a small 12Volt fan, connected it to an old cellphone charger, and strapped it to the top of my modem. Its a common problem with these things.

Nope. It did used to have a basic UI.

So far so good, I've not needed to manually reboot the modem so far *touch wood*

 

Edit: Just got 210mb on a speedtest, can't paste image as Speedtest.net doesn't do https
