Re: Upgrading Firmware on Thompson DCM475

Is Rogers the only company refusing to upgrade firmware? How about Videotron? Are they holding the same deplorable attitude and practice?

Dunno. But for most modems, we can now do it ourselves, or take/send it to Toronto to have it done. I'll be offering updates to DCM-475 modems here in Ottawa shortly.

Cheers

For what it's worth, Cogeco will update the firmware of any supported modem connected to its network, regardless of who owns it.

Please give out sites where we could find info about DIY flashing of most brands we find on market. I have googled but failed to get any useful info so far.

Couldn't tell for sure, but mine updated itself from STAC.55.01 to STAC.55.04 the first time it joined their network last Februrary. They deactivated the web interface a month later and I haven't been commited enough to find out if they pushed new versions since then.

That's a fascinating thread thanks to mlord and Teddy Boom. Lots of good info in here.

Lots of references in this thread to starting points. I hate to be like this, but if you aren't finding anything you aren't looking hard enough. I don't want to go any further in the direction of "how to hack cable internet" so I'm not going to hold your hand on this.
