      Sagemcom C8CD firmware updates should be happening now

      If you're on version 5.12.4a4n or 5.14.6a4N you haven't been upgraded yet.

      5.14.6.1 is apparently the new version.

      Best way to ensure you get the update is to disable WiFi on router so it doesn't lock up

      New sagemcoms with mac address beginning 7C should be going out with latest firmware.

      Any news on when this is likely to start rolling out?

      now, although I don't know if it's a staggered rollout as with previous routers. Apparently this will be done "over the next few weeks".

      Don't tell the local authorities!

      I don't believe that they have Sky BB in Prison.

      Looking at a post on the Sky Help Forum, this does seem to be the likely method.

      It has been mentioned that potentially around 20,000 people might receive the upgrade each time, starting today/tonight.

      So for everyone with a Sagem, please disable your WiFi and connect it to the Internet. If you need WiFi, piggyback another router (see the guide in the section 'Asking for Help') and manage this way.

      Since the updates are likely to be staggered, any information will be useful for everyone if you have received it.

      Mine updated this morning now running 5.14.6.1a4N.

      I had no problems before the update so dont know if it has sorted all the issues out.

      It appears to be official!

      Sky Help Forum - Update to customers experiencing wireless stabilit... - Page 20 - Help & Support from the Official Sky Forum

      Update to customers experiencing wireless stability issues with Sagemcom F@ST 2304N routers
      on 20-05-2011 07:19 PM

      We are rolling out a firmware upgrade to customers affected by wireless stability issues on Sagemcom F@ST 2304N routers. The rollout will be completed in about 4 weeks and we will issue a further update when it has been completed.

      Please can you make sure that your router is kept switched on over the next 4 weeks to allow it to receive the update.

      You may notice a period of about 10 minutes when you are unable to access the internet, please don’t switch the router off when this happens as it may be going through the upgrade.

      We thank you for your patience and we’re sorry for any inconvenience that this issue has caused.

      I too have recieved this updated firmware, I was asked to test it but they didnt inform me it had been done, so not sure when I actually got it, but anyway

      New Firmware 5.14.6.1a4N

      I noticed 2 days ago, I have been hammering my wifi ever since, torrents on wired, & streaming video over wifi for the last 2 days (as well as usual internet use on bothe machines) with no problems what so ever

      Although they have turned my speed down again.

      Edit - Please ignore this post. Apparently I wasnt supposed to say anything, so I didnt say anything... until they announced it themselves!!!
      Anyway after they announced it I posted on the Sky forum that I got the update & it worked, & they have removed my comment & told me off for posting about it 'cuz I agreed not to post anything!
