Re: Actiontec 40.19.36 firmware

Buckweet1980, you are spot-on with your description of how Apple breaks widely respected, industry standard RFC's....These workarounds break the 'normal' protocols to get Apple's stuff to work...

As already mentioned see Bigdaddy's post on how to get to the page to disable IGMP Proxy.

Yes, I am happy they completely removed the IGMP proxy, as it enhances the functionality of my AirPlay devices.

I am NOT happy that they seem to have completely removed UPnP, which is a security hole but is quite convenient. Perhaps this is what you're thinking about? I don't see what use an IGMP proxy would be to anyone's home network in 2013.

I guess ipv6 will eventually replace the need for UPnP.

Found a actiontec video on youtube talking about setting UPnP for devices like the Xbox. Was able to make out that the page is 900 so try

»192.168.1.1/index.cgi?active%5fpage=900

I had the update happen the other day happen the other day and it reset my DHCP settings to the default. This is important if you have changed the default subnet on your internal LAN. My rev I reset the DHCP Server but did not reset the LAN rendering the device inaccessible because, in my case, the DHCP range was reset to 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254 (the default setting) but the actual network remained 192.168.0.0/24 as I had set it. I recovered by manually entering an IP address in my computer to the 12.168.1.0/24 range so I could access the router and reset the DHCP range to math the LAN.

I don't think the traffic meter works properly on this router (all firmwares). It seems to reset the counter randomly, giving incorrect cumulative results. Is there a way to report this to Verizon and/or Actiontec?
