This is great news. I will wait until someone tries this update and makes a positive post about it before I try it.

Anyone tried this update yet?

Running this on a CGNM-3552.  No dead LAN ports or any other issues seen.  The modem is running in Bridge mode.

I think that most/all of the REs are running it at this point. I've got it on a CGN3ACSMR, and it seems to work fine. 

 

Honestly, what I think it comes down to is this - if you're in an area with the Casa CMTSes and you have a situation like last weekend for me, where I had to power cycle the modem 4 times/day due to the Casa/LAN port bug, you want this firmware... yesterday. It can't be worse than .20... 

 

If you're in an area with the Cisco CMTSes, then it's a different story...

Re: Rogers Rocket Wi-Fi Modem – Firmware Trial

Any firmware updates coming for the CGN3ACR? Currently at 4.2.8.12 but experiencing quite a few random reboots. Was hoping firmware updates would fix this but so far haven't seen any.
