      We'll soon see if its true. Someone surely would post if they have noticed it happening.

      As for being the only one Alan, I think Murdock is of the same beliefs.

      If you really want to not accept it then telnet the router and type in the following commands..

      nvram unset daily_check
      nvram unset nvram_need_post
      nvram unset ppp_terminate
      nvram unset prov_last_attempt_time
      nvram unset prov_last_update_time
      nvram unset prov_post_status

      Note these will reset and the router will search for the FW if you reboot the router.

      In most software development life cycles, regressions are generally regarded as a show stopper. A typical set of release criteria would be "no major bugs and no regressions". Indeed, that last requirement might be why we've had to wait so long for this update.

      More confirmations regarding this and also a mention of staff being offered overtime to ring customers to find out if all is fine afterwards.

      1 million phone calls could take a long while to do, plenty of overtime if that is the case.

      I think the phone calls will only be made to the first lot of people whose routers that are upgraded, not every single broadband subscriber

      Well, it looks like i just had my FW update at about 00.19, couldn't get on for about ten minutes after it... but then it seems to have righted itself. I'm fantastic mind you.
