6-2-T-2 (6.2.29.2) is it I think. I seem to have lost the actual download, maybe it's on my other machine.

6.1.4.3 is quite old now - that was the last one that had tweakable noise margin.

6.2.29.2 is really old as well. I am on 7.4.3.2. Problem is that for some reason Thomson have stopped releasing firmware updates to the public. I managed to get my copy from a German bulletin board. I will try and find the link

Cheers

I think 6.2.29.2 is the latest UK release.

But I think the difference is something simple, like defaulting VPI/VCI to 0/38.

Yes 6.2.29.2 is the last UK update. I found that it isn't very good when you stress your line. I live a couple of hundred yards from my exchange with good attenuation and SNRM. I asked for the 6DB profile and was syncing at c 22mbps, but was getting 20,000 CRC errors in 5 or 6 hours. The 7.4.3.2 was better, held noise margin well and errors were 2,500 per day or so. Problem was that noise margin would fluctuate and line would periodically drop , typically lasting a few hours. Moved up to 8.2.2.5 and now getting less then 2000 CRC errors in a 24 hour period. Noise margin is more stable again and line hasn't dropped in a day and half.

Cheers

I might have a look at that. I ditched mine for use on O2 as it lost sync as soon as SNRM fell below 3dB, but my Netgear has other disadvantages.

I've got the upgrade wizard. Where is 8.2.2.5 please?

German (deutch) 8.2.1.5 firmware >>> link

See post & link by humm re 8.2.2.5 firmware link suggests it's for the 585v7 /n, who knows???

I haven't used any of the above firmware yet as I'm trying out a Netgear DG834GT router at the moment.

I can confirm that I used the 8.2.2.5 found midway down that page - the one that says its for the 585v6. It seems to be working fine. Possibly because I did an upgrade it retained the PPPOA template - or else the 585v6 version does have it. No idea - anyway seems to be working ok.

If you do use it please note you try this at your own risk.

Reading that thread there appear to also be problem with the wireless. I haven't tested that part yet. It has kept my link up for almost three days when 7.4.3.2 was dropping it every few hours (say 2 to 3 times a day)

Cheers
