Re: DPC2100 new firmware

Well I've already had one reboot and the log says Watchdog Timer.

With the previous firmware my modem would go months with no reboots, no issues whatsoever.

WOW knew the watchdog timer was too sensitive and I thought they were going to fix it before releasing this firmware. To quote WOW_Dan from August:

We are investigating what to do with the watchdog timer. It gets triggered by your modem losing connectivity briefly, the modem will reboot to resolve the issue. This was a new feature of the DPC2100 firmware, and it doesn't seem to be working exactly as it should. I see yours rebooted once on 8/27 and once on 8/29, so it's not happening too often, but it is something we're already looking into.

Hoping Dan will comment.
