Thank you Dave, once again, for your assistance to this community! Also, congratulations on your 500th post
I'm glad this 500th post had some substance and wasn't a random comment (like this one)
New gateway? Please, just give us a quality (non-hitron) bare modem without any routing or wifi functionality. Please.
I just received some information regarding the upcoming software versions for the CODA-4582.
I will add more details in the release notes in the next couple of days but I'm trying to be as transparent as possible in the meantime.
This version of firmware is identical in functionality to 188.8.131.52. The only difference is that it contains some changes to branding and images.
This version will go live in production at some point in June and won't be tested on this forum.
I have received this version and should be able to start deploying it to a few modems tomorrow and gradually for the rest of the week. I will accept volunteers for the first batch via PM.
The most important changes are:
I should receive this version mid next-week. This version will include the same fixes as 184.108.40.206 +
These release notes are a subset of everything. I'm trying my best to extract what is relevant while keeping it clear.
@RogersDave can you elaborate on the 4582 MoCA implementation? Is this intended for use with the Hitron MoCA extender only, with Rogers Cable modems only, or with other MoCA adapters such as the Actiontec adapters? Or is the implentation wide open for use with any other MoCA device? The 4582 datasheet indicates " MoCA 2.0 bonding provides a near Gigabit wired backbone in the customer’s home for Wi-Fi extension. " and shows a Hitron wifi extender connected via MoCA, so, its not clear if the 4582 MoCA implementation is intended for use solely with the Hitron MoCA extender.
@RogersDave can you elaborate on the 4582 MoCA implementation?
The intent is to support MoCA extenders in the future but we are trying to provide enough flexibility so that a customer can use his own extender if he wishes to do so.
That being said, there are a few things missing in the current build (privacy settings) but we are working towards that.
