Hopefully that works for me too, I've been having to restart mine perhaps once every 1 to 2 days. Getting annoying.

DragonNZ: I used to have to restart mine but fix it by disabling LOG. Got to Management -> Log Configuration and untick Enable Log and click Apply. Have been running sweet now for days!


sounds like its simply running out of memory for the log, and rather than trimming it like it should, simply dying..

Anyone got it working in Bridge mode successfully?

I am trying to get it to pass through to my Asus N55-U and have failed miserably so far.

Probably my mistake - not a configuration I have ever used before.

im having a problem with my minecraft server hosted behind the router, my friends can join it but they get kicked off after a few seconds

it doesnt kick me off when im connecting to it as localhost and the only thing i can think of is the router, since this is the first time ive tried with the new one.

I was also having great trouble with port fordwarding for the VB104W, It would connect but would drop the connection a few seconds later. I have just talked to slingshot and they have informed me that the modem doesn't work. They are currently working on a firmware fix that is being tested now and will be ready in a few weeks. Apparently they are sending a mass email today. Hope that helps people that are having trouble.

sounds good. anyone know how we update them? do slingshot have some kind of system that does it automaticlly or do we have to download and install it ourselves?

Hi guys just wondering what stats you get on this modem. People have said that this syncs abit different to other modems. I'm wondering if the power output on this modem is alot lower than some...


Downstream Upstream
SNR Margin (0.1dB): 12.3 11.8
Attenuation (0.1dB): 9.0 102.3
Output Power (dBm): 7.1 7.6
Rate (Kbps): 25972 5103
D (interleave depth): 1 1

Slingshot have had the new firmware update since the first week in January according to an email i received from energy imports (VB104W Distributor).

I have been hassling them weekly for them to release the firmware to us (Slingshot Customers) but they reckon they are still "testing it". Today's update was they they will "push the firmware" to our routers before the end of the week.

As with anything slingshot related i am not holding my breath as their customer service has to be some of the most appalling i have ever had to deal with and trying to get answers from someone with authority is impossible. Their head guys always seem to be away on leave or out of the office or whatever other excuses they can dream up!

Here's hoping they are genuine to their words and we have a firmware before the end of the week, although i highly doubt it!

Pretty sure this original firmware update was in regards to port forwarding but was causing further issues than resolving them. The new firmware hopes to address both port forwarding and hanging connections under heavy load.

Dat Attenuation.   Mine is reporting incorrect stats too, sounds like a router bug to me. I have an attainable rate of -2144006648/0 at the moment, my Output power is in the negatives too hahaha

I have been getting decent speeds on VB104W Ethernet (50Mb/s DL& 8.5 UL) but cannot get anything above 20Mb/s on WIFI, anyone else having this problem? I'm only 1 metre from modem and get great signal strength.

My old Netgear would give me approx. 30Mb/s - was hoping this router would be able to deliver at least that too.
