Re: Billion 7800N is the new "Thomson ST586v6"...LEGENDARY

Even better, if you save your configuration settings under Advanced>Configuration>System>Backup/Restore>Backup it even saves your tweaked SNR margin in the backup file! So no need to faff around with the SNR values once you upgrade your firmware....just reload that backup file and bobs yer uncle smile
Isn't it saved in Flash memory under "Save Config", or using the option to re-start with current settings rather than factory default ones after an upgrade?

(I use my 7800N with FTTC so don't know how the ADSL side operates)

Yes the tweaked SNR margin is saved to the flash memory and after a reboot it retains these settings provided you tick "current settings" when rebooting. However when upgrading the firmware, Billion strongly recommend you select "factory default settings" to avoid any potential problems. This is when its really useful to have a backup config file, as it saves you manually typing in every setting....and believe me there's about a trillion settings on the 7800N smile

I hadn't spotted that, thanks. Maybe I got lucky when I put the beta firmware on crazy
and believe me there's about a trillion settings on the 7800N smile
Don't I know it- and there's a few more on the beta IPv6 version grin

I had not taken a backup of the firmware recently. Thanks for the reminder.

As you mentioned earlier, it will certainly save me having to remember all my
customised settings, if and when I upgrade the firmware in future.

I did that, they sent me the one with SNMP disabled frown

Had to get another one with it enabled so my graphs would work again.

My non-wireless 7800 didn't like it, when I tried to accidentally upgrade with
previous 7800N firmware, so I will probably wait for their standard release,
as and when it happens. Also, I can't really afford my 7800 to be "throwing a
wobbly", as I work from home most of the time and need a reliable connection.

Even so, I will still continue to monitor this thread for news from those of you
confident enough to be "guinea pigs". My thanks go out to you !

Yeah i was also emailed this firmware but thought it would be quicker/easier for everyone to download it from rapidshare rather than inundating Billion with millions of requests for this firmware. Really don't know why Billion UK don't post this beta firmware on their website with a simple disclaimer "as this is in beta stage use this at your own risk blah blah blah"frown
