I don't appear to be having any issues with VPN since the new firmware was pushed. Maybe it's because I have Sky Fibre because looking at the blog it seems to be affecting PPPoE connections to the modem.

Me neither, and I use a UDP based VPN.

Yep; if Sky Fibre is still using MER then it's immune to this issue.

Reading that blog, will all BT vdsl modem get the firmware update, or just people using BT infinity? I have a BT vdsl modem installed by BT but my ISP is Entanet - will that get a forced updated?

Fortunately I'll be immune as my work VPN uses GRE, however those who use IPSEC-based VPNs have potential for issues.

The modems are managed by Openreach, not BT Retail, who supply BT Infinity.

All Huawei VDSL modems will get the update.

Yes, sorry, I meant Openreach (but it's all BT to me wink )

OK, since I had fttc 15 days ago line has been stable except looking at my router logs I got a disconnect/reconnect at 02:05 Monday morning - of course, I dunno if it was the vdsl modem rebooting (it's a black box as you know) but just a PPPoE log, so I wonder if that is what it was.

Thanks for reply.

The ISPs can upgrade but OR have the final ruling.

Ryan, can you explain that a bit more? What does OR have the final ruling on, exactly?
