Plusnet Hub 2 Firmware Update

I can see from the technical log that my PN Hub 2 will updates it's firmware overnight to v0.06.00.12134-PN.

Is there an overview of the changes and improvements that this will bring?

No, there doesn't tend to be release notes for firmware.

Suggest check sync speed and note any changes

I've seen no noticeable sync speed change when the firmware updated, download 52121 kbps before, 51946 kbps after.

Re: Plusnet Hub 2 Firmware Update

Can someone please remind me how the Hub Two gets its firmware updates and whether I need to do anything (e.g. restart the router) to get them.

I installed my new Hub Two at the weekend and I see that its firmware is 0.05.03.07154-PN, which is below the release given at the top of this forum as the latest version.

Shall I just wait for an update to happen or do I need to do anything to start the process?

Re: Plusnet Hub 2 Firmware Update

@grahamt It should automatically pick up the update, without you doing anything. How long have you had it?

Re: Plusnet Hub 2 Firmware Update

Thanks, John.

Typically for me, after asking the question I looked further into it. The technical log told me the firmware was updated at 10:27 this morning. It was still reporting the version as 0.05.... so I tried restarting the router. Voila - I now have the current version.

Re: Plusnet Hub 2 Firmware Update

When the Hub 2 downloads new firmware it automatically schedules a reboot around 02:00 the following day.

Re: Plusnet Hub 2 Firmware Update

@grahamt Glad you got it sorted - and @MisterW beat me to it with the auto-reboot comment. Sorry, I was on another forum, so didn't see these replies until now.
