      Re: 2304n: longest WAN uptime record?

      It's 5.14.6.1a4N, which is the same as was shipped with the router.

      But the config file shows different versions (of firmware?), or am I misinterpreting things?

      While on MER:
      http://fast2304.skyfirmware.com 3 1 3 1 3 1308605998
      Since PPPoA:
      http://fast2304.skyfirmware.com 3 1 3 1 3 1310068157


      The differences to the end of my config file:

      With MER
      DSL TRUE 1 0 Complete 3000 TRUE EoA PVC: 0/40 VCMUX TRUE atm0 TRUE IP_Routed ipoe_0_0_40 TRUE TRUE atm0 0 0 atm0 atm0

      With PPPoA
      DSL TRUE 0 1 TRUE PPPoA PVC: 0/38 VCMUX TRUE atm0 TRUE IP_Routed pppoa_0_0_38 TRUE TRUE sky c2t5AA== pppoa0 90.207.238.97,90.207.238.99 0 TRUE 1500 FALSE 0 pppoa0 pppoa0

      Ok, you have the latest firmware version and don't have an even newer one.

      Someone else may be able to help with the other information though.

      With regards to the difference between MER & PPPoA connection settings, we are aware that there is a difference though.

      Sorry if I got you excited - I did think that 1a4N was current - but there were differences in the config file relating to firmware.

      Perhaps it just relates to how any firmware updates should be grabbed?

      Yes. Again, sorry. just thought I would add that for completeness.


      Thanks.

      Anyway, basically 70 hrs WAN now after the switch from MER to PPP0A (is this just a coincidence?), my best since going live on the 7th of last month.

      Update:

      To wrap this one up, I am pretty much convinced that apart from my router initially going live at a sync down of 621k, that the culprit for the instability has been the wireless implementation within this router.

      Maybe the hardware is a bit suspect - maybe certain firmware exacerbates the problem, I don't know. Anyway, if I disable wireless it seems to be quite happy.
