      Another Sky Router firmware bug?

      Is it me, or is the Sky router incapable of registering that it can work for longer than 1 day 23 hours and 59 minutes?

      My stats below are for just over 2 days. The total time should read 2 days 10 minutes 29 seconds as can be verified from the last 24 hours stats. Or is it a record to go this long without rebooting?

      Certainly the longest I have gone since updating my network card driver!!

      Ha, ha, it's a trivial bug I guess, but in the circumstances a very funny one.

      Yeah, the total time given there is definitely wrong - you can tell by the SF counts. For the previous 24 hour period, it's roughly 5 million frames but for the total time, supposedly for only ten minutes more, it's over 10 million frames.

      Perhaps it's Mognuts' utility miscalculating when reading the stats? Logging into the router shows an uptime of 49+ hours so it does know it is getting close to a world record!

      Re: Another Sky Router firmware bug?

      Mognuts just copies the output from the adslctl command, so it's a bug in that command, not the utility itself. I believe the adslctl command is supplied as part of the software that Broadcom supply to manufacturers using their ADSL chipset, so it's a Broadcom bug rather than a Netgear one.

      This must be a record?.....unless of course you know different! I am up to 67 now I have updated my Network Adaptor driver so I am aiming for a new one!

      EDIT: Spoke too soon - got disconnected and reconnected just after 6pm so my uptime record for now is 67 hours!

      Yes, definitely a bug. Cannot record more than 1 day 23 hours 59 minutes. Mine has now been up for 146 hours at a constant sync speed and faultless performance since the last disconnection!
