@RogersIan Welcome back! Glad to hear that we're getting the long awaited firmware this week. The firmware version, 7.1.1.21 is quite a substantial jump from 2.0.10.36T6 - is the naming an indication that there will be lots of new features in this firmware?

Re: FEEDBACK - Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem Firmware Trial

Is 7.1.1.21 being rolled out to everybody?  Or only as a beta to those signed up?

I received it this morning.  Can't remember if I'm in the beta group or not.

 

RogersIan, as a heads up, you should update the second post on Page 1 of this thread to reflect the new version and release date.

Re: FEEDBACK - Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem Firmware Trial

I received 7.1.1.21 last night and here are my initial findings:

 

Cons:

- The new firmware did not upgrade from my old configuration; I had to setup the router from scratch

- There is no configuration to forward IPV6 DNS on the LAN, it was removed (I use pihole as my internal DNS server server for ad filtering)

- no-ip.com (I used domain ddns.net) was removed as a DDNS provider

 

Pros:

- adding a DHCP reservation address no longer reboots the router

No OFDMA upstream.

 

Upstream now shows 8 available channels with 3 occupied, in my case.

Ok thanks for the input.

 

I am still waiting for mine to be pushed as I have a new modem and they didn't had the new information in time.

 

Perhaps @RogersIan  will push it soon.

How did you update the info for the new modem as I have a new modem as well.

Thank you.
