As of Jan 2016 is V100R001C206B019 the latest firmware version (for Vodafone HG659)


Yep.


From the downloads page:
 
 
 
To begin the firmware upgrade:
  • Download the firmware file and save it to an easily accessible location on your computer
    • Filename: HG659-16V100R001C206B020_main.bin
    • File size: Approximately 18MB

 

 

My uptime stats:

 

System Information

 

 
Product type:
HG659
Device ID:
(Blank on purpose)
Hardware version:
VER.B
Software version:
V100R001C206B019
System up time:
39 days 15 hours 47 minutes 22 seconds
 
Can you please advise when v020 was made available and what has changed?
 
Reluctant to upgrade from v019 as it seems quite stable.
 
Feature request:
More static ip addresses please!!!
9 is not enough for all the devices I have kicking around here and my media server is far more stable if it always sees the same device on the same IP
 
Cheers
David

I spoke too soon.... the wlan was brilliant for a day and now it's gone back to being slow and flakey again.

...and today it's working perfectly again.  Fingers crossed it was just the bad weather yesterday.

Hi I have This modem which is a Vodafone modem but has Telecom firmware installed and cant seem to be able to install this firmware HG659V100R001C227B011 and was thinking if it wont install due to being a higher version number ( C227 ) whereas vodafone is C206 ?

I'm on firmware V100R001C206B020 and still get the "Internet is unavailable" message on the homepage despite disabling onnet_vdsl. The internet still works so not a big deal but would be nice to have it working properly. Also, for future revisions, any chance of having more fixed IP addresses available?
