I live in a flat with 8 people and this modem becomes unusable after several days of use.
I bought a digital timer and programmed it to cut power to the modem every night 1.55am-2am.
This is the only way that the internet speed stays usable. Otherwise the fibre connection degrades to being mostly unresponsive.

Will this latest firmware resolve IPv6 not working on a fibre connection? We seem to get an IPv6 address on the wan the IPv6 DNS resolves but no traffic. It only works on IPv4.
Also there is no option to perform an upgrade in the Maintain menu. The router software version as follows:

If you've got an IPv6 address and the HG659 then you should be fine running IPv6 traffic, see this thread for more detail. From what I can see on the network you're connected OK, and an IPv6 ping from your router works fine. Give the router a reboot first to rule that out, then call our tech support and get them to investigate. If you have no luck with that, PM me.
To upgrade it's in the Maintain menu under Device Management. I think you need to be logged in as Admin to do that.

I've found this RGW to be unstable. Ours has been replaced as it kept losing the port forwarding configuration. Now the new one is doing the same thing! Last week it was the VPN ports that were dropped and last night it was the IMAP and SMTP ports. In addition performance drops every few days and I have to restart things.
After the RGW was replaced, I did restore the configuration from the old RGW, to preserve the host naming and port forwarding. Not sure if Motive HDM is now confused about administering the RGW.
We never had any problems before we upgraded to FibreX and had the RGW supplied (previously, it was just the cable modem connected directly to our own router).

Can I use that version software to update modem provided by Vodafone Ireland ? (I can find any forum topic on .ie vodafone forum where somebody post link to new software for 659 )

hi . If the Vodafone Ireland is using the same hardware variant as ours NZ hardware HG659 yes you should be able to flash our firmware. if the Vodafone Ireland has locked out this function then it will fail. Would not know until you try it and by any chance if you brick it just give us a buzz and we ll see if we are able to send you a new one!
