      Re: Sagemcom C8CD firmware updates should be happening now

      there's an updater daemon running on the router
      that checks a txt file on a sky website
      to see if there's an update available

      Here's an example for the 2504

      [SAGEM2504]

      downloadHost=download.skyfirmware.com
      firmwarePath=/S/*********/**************/download/firmware/fast2504/
      firmwareImage=2.8Sky
      firmwareSize=3606649
      configPath=/session/*********/**************/download/config/fast2504/
      configName=FAST2504_standard_13.conf
      statusHost=download.skyfirmware.com
      statusPath=/session/*********/**************/status/


      Firmware URL
      download.skyfirmware.com/S/*********/**************/download/firmware/fast2504/2.8Sky

      Firmware Config
      download.skyfirmware.com/session/*********/**************/download/config/fast2504/FAST2504_standard_13.conf

      I don't have the specific technical details, but I would hazard a guess at the fact that Sky will have a limited back-door into the router and be able to recognise the MAC address of the Sagem 2304n routers.

      All the early Sagem 2304n routers have a MAC address that begins with C8C for example.

      Re: Sagemcom C8CD firmware updates should be happening now

      Both the sky netgear dg834gt and D-link dsl-2640s also run an update daemon, called "provisioning_ap" and "updater" respectively, which check for new firmware.

      The Dg834GT initially downloads the following URL using wget

      Code:
      http://dg834gt.skyfirmware.com/?mac=AABBCCDDEEFF&firmwareVersion=1.03.27&model=dg834gt&product=skydsl
      and receives a text file which includes a download url. (AABBCCDDEEFF would normally be the router's lan mac address, with any letters in capitals and without any colons, and the firmware version is the one currently on the router)



      The d-link's initial download is

      Code:
      http://dsl-2640s.skyfirmware.com/?mac=%s&firmwareVersion=%s&model=%s&product=%s
      The %s's would be replaced by the relevant parameters.

      You'll notice that the urls are the same format

      So at a guess the new sagem might check a url something along these lines:-

      Code:
      http://fast2304.skyfirmware.com/?mac=AABCCDDEEFF&firmwareVersion=5.14.6a4N&model=fast2304&product=skydsl
      and expect to receive a text file containing a download url.

      Can't understand why sky will not make the firmware public, doing nothing just makes them look even worse.

      This has been requested (i.e. link made available to download it and self-install).

      The message has been passed up the chain, but no response yet from above.

      Several others have backed my post asking for this, so we shall see what is done.

      Somebody said that the 2304N's being sent out now have the upgraded firmware. Has anybody checked the cd that came with the router?

      That wouldn't be a bad idea, in case anyone needs to use the recovery software, as you really wouldn't want to go back to one that has a serious issue with wifi, even temporarily, if you connect your PC that way.

      I think they released one before for the original router, but I'd guess is that they won't do that unless they are confident that upgrade won't generate loads of calls to support.

      Some different sagemcom 2304s being sent out, not within the C8CD mac address range, are having the exact same problems it would seem. Don't think they come with the updated firmware, however.

      One of you should try pulling the file as per fuzzy logic's instructions
