yay it has an Autoreboot feature finally ! :) No more programmable socket with dodgy clock that I couldn't get to easily.

Firmware looks good, much more features added all over, including system up time which I am sure was not there before...

Hi

System update was there before.

It would be better if we had a watchdog option in addition to this. If the unit freezes then it will not be able to reboot itself, however a watchdog is a separate bit of hardware in the chip that will detect this and reset the device even where the operating system has locked up.

The 7800N had this on a hidden menu, Billion is there an option on these newer models?

Haven't had it lock up yet though, been 20 days before a firmware update needed me to reboot.

Regards

Phil

After checking with our engineers they have stated the only feature is the 'AutoReboot' page found on http://192.168.1.254/autoReboot.html

My unit is stable, it has improved a lot since the beginning since release.

I use the Autoreboot feature to get me best syncs of the day. Very pleased with the latest firmware.

As for watchdogs, this is standard for any electronic system, i guess it is weather or not they have enough system checks to ascertain what classifies as a watchdog condition.

Sorry, I saw it after because I didn't try to download it. Works perfectly for me, no problem. Just a problem with the configuration wizzard after rebooting. When you ask to use an ethernet connection, I can't set all parameters (not available) and the wizzard fails.

Orange Fibre (FTTH on the EWAN socket). When the wizzard ask xDSL or Ethernet, I choose Ethernet and I can't set the ID for the Internet (or TV, or VOIP). The wizzard stop here and try to connect without more settings and fail.
