Thanks rtcy, I actually already use OpenDNS. Unfortunately, people are setting their own DNS servers.

There's a quick and spiffy way to prevent them from doing exactly that. Just set up a couple rules in the "Advanced Filtering" section of the Firewall setup. First rule allows all traffic to the OpenDNS servers; the second rule blocks all DNS requests from any internal source IP, to any external destination IP. I've been doing this for two years on F, G, and I Actiontecs and haven't seen any pitfalls, performance or otherwise.

Hi all,
I'm on RevI as well but for some reason, I can't find UPnP, multicast, or IGMP options. My HDHomeRun Prime is connected to an ethernet port but none of my wireless devices can use WMC for it. It worked with the previous router but not this new RevI.

I heard people are also having this problem with xbox, tivo, and other devices as well.

In the newest Rev I firmware, options to control UPnP and IGMP Proxy have been removed from the "Advanced Settings" page.

I've also noticed that firewall logging no longer works as before. Even with logging enabled for "Remote Administration" attempts, nothing shows up in the logs. You can verify this by going to good old grc.com and running their port scanner to check your router security. Even when running that tool, nothing shows up in the Actiontec's firewall log.

Those settings don't exist in Rev. I. They took out both the UPnP and IGMP settings in firmware 40.19.36.

Then on the Rev I is there no way to disable IGMP proxy? Just wondering because when it is enabled it makes my Airport Express speakers useless.

go to Advanced->Routing and uncheck the IGMP. that just disable the IGMP.

Now I'm confused, you just said they removed the settings from Rev I......

I don't have a Rev I right now, but if the settings are gone then I wouldn't want to upgrade.

That is not going to work for his purposes of getting the Airport Express speakers to work. IGMP is needed for multicast as I understand, but the IGMP Proxy is blocks multicast from the Airport Express and the HDHomeRun prime (this is the problem I'm experiencing with my router at the moment).

In the latest firmware, 40.19.36, IGMP proxy settings are removed and you can no longer disable IGMP proxy. There are several people who have tried to downgrade the firmware with limited success.

Once a downgrade is completed, Fios will push the new firmware back onto the router. Blocking the port for which the firmware is pushed into the router is not allowed on the actiontec router. The only way to overcome this problem is to disable the internet/remove coax from the router.

If anyone knows of a workaround this would be great, otherwise I'm stuck with a HDHomeRun Prime that can only work over a wired network.

Guys - I just got the Rev I. It runs firmware 40.19.36.

I see the IPv6 option under Advanced on the router's setting page.
It's disabled.

Could someone please explain why I would want to enable it?
I also noticed that IPv6 has its own firewall setting...

Also, under Network, I don't have the option to Rename the device on most of the devices on my network. Why not?

Thank you in advance.

Well, in response to the question about IPv6: here is a post on Verizon FiOS's page.

Verizon FiOS is supposed to be making IPv6 avail. 3rd quarter of 2012 for customers with a dynamic IP address first...

Is anyone seeing/ using it?

reply to FlareDust

You are correct. I did not say you can disable IGMP proxy. I said you can disable IGMP, which is not the same thing. It worked for some people and not all. Most people need the multicast as you have said but it's still worth a try.

Rep told me the other day during an ONT reset that IPv6 deployment for residential customers will start in January.

Hmm. Can't find a way to that page EXCEPT for the jump you mentioned. Does it actually work? Or is it an old page with no code behind it.

Apparently it works Posted it over on Verizon's board mentioned give kudos to Bigdaddy.

Very clean, merry Christmas and I'm defenetly showing my age and mind I think I tried something like this and failed. I miss my gnatbox firewall that thing let you made rules that always worked without fail. but I have 4 kids 3 of them computer savvy and then some and find a way around the old man.

as I have the silicondust units too, this makes the I useless for me, and I was thinking of getting a couple and sending them to Brainslayer again. oh well

Can someone confirm if the uPNP is disabled? is this verizon's way to kill devices like the Silicon dust boxes? I'm sure we can still do them manually if so

Verizon is going to be releasing another new firmware update to replace this one. I have no ETA but I was told that UPnP menu and IGMP Proxy menu will be restored and Wi-Fi will be upgraded from 130Mbps to 300Mbps at 40Mhz channel space.

So Hold on Help is on the way.

I can Confirm that UPnP is Enabled by Default. Sorry there is no hidden menu I could find to enable or disable UPnP we will just have to wait for the new firmware to be released.

good cause eventhough it's said tobebad, UPNP can make life easy when you have grandkids coming over and wanting to use their devices, I just hand them the wpa password and let those little fingers do the work. sure love that 6 tuner silicon box. going to get a couple of the new Ceton extenders and send back 2 hd boxes and turn off the home thingi on the DVR , still bothered by what I was told by their phone rep that I would have to return the DVR and get another to turn off the homedvr feature, something they turned on remotely. oh well that's OT

Confirming that the deep link ("jump") works! Just in case that Verizon thread disappears, here's the deep link to the now-hidden IGMP Proxy page on the Rev I router:

Do you have anymore details on the 300Mbps/40Mhz upgrade? This would be very helpful for me since my Rev I unit is the only router I have in my home. I do a lot of local LAN file transfers over Wi-Fi, and being limited to 130Mbps really hurts sometimes.

Since I do not have access to a rev.i , I can not tell you what radio chipset and model it is or whether it will support the full range, so a firmware may not be all that is needed. I have swapped it on the rev A and the C models to accomodate third party firmware like Open WRT and DD-WRT.

I don't know if you have the cash to pick up this router and set it up as the second router to provide wireless in your place
