Re: Extreme 50 Config File Name?

said by wTheOnew:

On a side note, does it bother anyone else that Blast has extreme in the name and Extreme has blast in the name?

Actually yes. To me it does. Welcome to the ever *CONVOLUTED* world of CC....

Is there a way to see the config file version on a Zoom 5341J? That's the one thing I dislike about the zoom is the logs/config screens in the firmware etc are woefully inadequate (But signal levels are more accurate)

Not really...

You can see it in the logs as long as it's been recent enough that it's still on the page. Located here: »192.168.100.1/RgEventLog.asp

derp I'm log OCD. I clear the logs after a big modem event or reboot to see them better. Would a config file show up again on a factory reset or once a config file is in its pretty much burned into the firmware?

Another funny thing I notice is the T3 errors write over each other; I know I get at least one a day but I only see the latest entry; and they are cut off with an ellipsis. They look like this:

I'm not sure about the Zoom, but with my Motorola SB6120, it only shows the config file name after a firmware update or a tier upgrade/downgrade. Once it gets flushed out of the log, it's gone until one of those events happens again.

I also hate the ellipsis. Zoom did a pretty crappy job on the info provided to the user. :/

Doing a hardware reset via a long hold on the button on the modem seems to make it get the config file every time. Doesn't seem to do it every time when you reset it from the web interface.

Upgraded to 50/10 on Monday and they still haven't figured it out. Supposedly they're going to address the issue today between, and I quote, "8 and 8". I'm starting to think I'm part of an elaborate Truman Show-esq reality show when it comes to Comcast's 'support'.

Unlike Motorola which has been notorious for their modems being hypochondriacs with logging excessive info. making users have anxiety attacks.

On my zoom 5341 I go into 198.168.100.1 then go to Status config file name is the top line of the listing.

Yeah, o/k. Try clearing the log entries and see if it returns.
