Re: [Connectivity] Zoom 5341j firmware upgrade.

I have tried the reset button a number of times,but US light still blinks.

Hmm that's a little odd, usually blinking light means its not properly locked onto.

I had the best luck using the on-off button in the back, sometimes twice to correct that.

Are you holding it in until the front panel indicator lights begin to cycle ? Too short of a press makes it like a powercycle operation rather than a factory reset.

I held it down for up to a minute,with same results.

Re: Failed Firmware Upgrade Attempts

In my case, the reason for the failed firmware upgrades was a wrong config file being sent. I have a 5341J, but Comcast was sending a config for a Zoom 5241. ComcastSteve updated the config file and the firmware upgrade succeeded. Thanks, Steve!

Glad you got it sorted ! I completely overlooked that config file naming in your screenshot, sorry...

Was this update about IPv6?

I noticed the 5341j is now certified for IPv6 on the CC approved modem page.

The 5341j was IPv6 certified by CC about 2 months ago. I haven't seen posts about what the update is about.

Mine's been doing that on and off for a couple of months now, it doesn't affect anything though, so I don't worry too much about it. I haven't received any firmware updates on mine here either, mine is still on 5.5.4.4J .

Edit-Update, I powered it off and back on again, and now have the new software-

Software Version 5.5.4.9J

So it started blinking when you got bonded upstream channels? Mine started blinking when I got multi upstream channels,but my connection is fine,and upload speed is a little faster.

No, after it sometime, I can't remember exactly when. I have two bonded upstream channels, and 8 bonded downstream channels.

Before the firmware upgrade i had downstream signal levels around 1-3 dbmv but ever since the upgrade my 192.168.100.1 modem page shows downstream signal levels now up to 5-6dbmv. Can firmware be off when it comes to detecting the exact signals or maybe the old or new firmware is off?

I moved into this new apartment a few months ago and my downstream power levels were always at 1-3dbmv until this firmware upgrade on my zoom modem. Downstream SNR is around 41-42 (same as before upgrade) and upstream power levels are 39-40 (again, same as before upgrade).

Always remember modem's only try to judge signal levels. So there not exactly accurate, and it's possible with the firmware update, it judges signal levels a little different. Still being at 5-6db on the power level is ok, and really nothing to worry about atm. Still you don't want that to keep rising though. Also I have seen where the modem reboots, and once it locked back online power level's being a little different.

Just got a e-mail back from the people who do the testing and approving of modems.
He said the Motorola SB 6141 which is a 8x4 D3 modem is in testing now and once it passes all their testing it will be placed on the approved list.
He really couldn't give a time frame though.

Just talked to Comcast and the SB6141 is now on the approved list.
