Hey Guys

I noticed a new firmware is available fro the WRP400, though I understand the updates need to be provisioned to the router by Xnet, is there usually a long delay? the list of improvements/fixes is quite impressive:

(Taken from release PDF

The following new features were added:

Added the ability to configure a wireless “guest network” to allow guests to connect to the Internet while

preventing access to your local network. For instructions, see the WRP400 User Guide.

Added provisioning support for configuring router/data parameters via open (XML-style) format .

Added VLAN support through a VLAN ID that is included in all outgoing packets. You can configure this

VLAN ID through remote provisioning.

Enhancements and Bug Fixes

Upgraded the wireless driver to version 2.0.7-1.

Upgraded the voice module version 1.0.12(20080529a).

Updated all Help content in the web-based utility.

Edited the GUI to address minor issues.

Modified the IGMP Proxy switch control mechanism to enhance Triple Play performance. Now the router

directs multicast packets to the respective LAN ports without using the CPU’s multicast routing.

Added support for router syslog and debug log.

Added support for WPS in the web-based utility.

Added PPPoE Relay in the Advanced Routing page.

Added DNS Proxy to the Basic Setup page.

Added ability to detect active LAN clients through the Diagnostics page.

Fixed an issue with the Internet Access Restriction feature.

Fixed an issue with DMZ by MAC with a static LAN IP.

Fixed an issue with incoming logging when Port Range Triggering is enabled.

Fixed a DHCP lease time issue.

Fixed an issue with the wireless channel display.

Resolved an issue with the MS-CHAP protocol.

Resolved an issue with MAC clone while using remote management.

Resolved an issue with relay of T.38 packets.

Fixed an issue with display of time zone settings.

Resolved an issue with factory reset through the web GUI.

Resolved an issue with Internet Access Restriction when NAT is disabled.

Resolved an issue with wireless connectivity after running the setup wizard.

Resolved an issue with the web GUI firmware login.

Resolved issue with wireless broadcast under the WPA encryption type.

Resolved an issue with security LED behavior.

Improved DTMF detection during a call.

Improved Voice QoS.

Fixed an issue with phones displaying incorrect status (fast flashing) when taken off hook.

Fixed an issue with custom settings not being saved during configuration backup.

Resolved an issue with the restore configuration function.

Replaced an expired embedded router certificate.

Yes, we are well aware of the update Cool... but believe it has an issue we are investigating with Linksys so won't be releasing it until we are fully satisfied as it may impact the Voice service.

Is the issue with regards to the DHCP lease time? As I'm having problems with my VFX phone calls disconnecting during DHCP lease renewals.

Roughly how long would it take for a green light to this new firmware? I'm keen to try it and hope it addresses my disconnection issues.

No it has nothing to do with this, I may allow a few people to use this code if they wish if you have an issue that may be addressed by this release, but under the proviso that you understand that we have some concerns on this code and you MAY and I stress MAY see some issue where the VOICE connection will stop working.

If you are aware of this and still happy to try the code, please PM me directly.

I've seen this on a few WRP400's now. I assume you have now released this version?

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
