Re: Poll: Those with slow speeds and line instability issues

Unfortunately you are persisting in giving bad and potentially dangerous advice, with all this flashing the modem as a fix for vague line stability problems. For someone who had previously flashed their modem with the unlocked firmware, and later discovered it was no longer functioning properly, then yes, re-flashing it might fix the modem. For the vast majority of people, who have never flashed to the unlocked firmware, suggesting they should flash the unlocked firmware to fix stability problems is bad advice. The idea that there are firmware bugs or incorrect settings that are fixed by the unlocked firmware is nonsense - all the unlocked firmware does it add the telnet and web interface, mainly for accessing DSL stats. Flashing a firmware is not without risk, and if something goes wrong with the flashing process, it could render the device permanently broken.

@Gregg

Are you now using B030SP08 or B028SP10?
