      Sagem Sky2.8

      It would seem that previous versions store address ranges as "IP,subnet" but the one they are rolling out now uses "start IP, end IP". They don't convert the config when updating though....

      Tech support are aware of problems with the update but are just sending out replacement routers.

      It took me a while to realise what they had done and I can't see it documented anywhere yet so figured I'd warn people.

      (There are at least two other related issues but this is the killer)

      Do you mean the LAN TCP/IP has been miss-configured and does not show as below?

      Re: Sagem Sky2.8

      Sorry, I should have been more specific. This is in the firewall rules/services.

      For example if you previously had a block on an IP range defined as a.b.c.d with a 255.255.255.0 subnet then you now have one that goes from a.b.c.d to 255.255.255.0. Obviously this means that having any rule active will now knock out large portions of the net.

      If you're seeing some sites running fine but others giving time-outs or "connection reset" errors then this is probably why.
