Re: XB6 Modem Settings/Requests/Firmware Discussion

So is it possible to roll back the firmware to avoid transparent DNS which the XB6 is doing.

Why rogers has decided to take control of the DNS is not clear.

End users have no control over the firmware on the modems. Rogers wants you to use their DNS because it is better for them. Any of my devices I set with a static IP, I use Cloudfare's DNS.

I was using Cloudflare, but it kept connecting to the DNS sever IAD instead of YYZ which added a noticeable delay loading websites. I have since switched to CIRA Canadian Shield which is working better so far.

The light may mean the signal is not strong enough. Is there a cable splitter in use up the line before it gets to the modem? I cannot find a legend to the LED by the coax anywhere.

No split down the line it is direct from the panel in basement. I definitely have a white flashing light right on top of the coax input in back of my modem.

I can confirm I cannot reserve IP addresses now with my firmware upgrade.
