Just a quick post to let you know that new firmware is available for the UltraHub. Most modems will automatically update but in case you want to do it yourself - steps to follow and link to download are here.


What is a firmware update?

Firmware is a software that is embedded into a hardware device, in this case your modem. Firmware controls how devices behave. Firmware update often fixes bugs, contains new features, and protects you from security vulnerabilities.


Why upgrade the existing firmware?

This firmware fixes some key bugs and adds security fixes:

  • User interface usability improvements,
  • Bug fixes for
    Wi-Fi pages and scheduling
    Phone services
    Login password change retention
    Speedtest result reporting (eg Xbox, Steam etc)
    Share Printer function
    ADSL stability improvements. 

When are the automatic updates?

Updates will be completed between 1am and 6am (Monday to Friday). The upgrade is automatic and no action is needed from you.

It ends in 2-4-9 in the Status/About page.

You can manually update it rather than wait for auto update if you want.
