Your appears to be current as well, Cisco doesn't put out updates as frequently as Motorola.

Interesting, I just started Cox HSI service (Preferred) in Orange County, California.

I bought a refurbished Cisco DPC3010 from ebay, and it came with the (May 16, 2011) firmware.

The first night after my Cox HSI service was activated, the modem-firmware was updated to (July 16, 2012.)

And your point Matt?

I am aware of what the firmware installed on my modem is. And the others who have pointed out that despite there being an update for these modems they too are at the 2011 firmware.

There is a newer firmware available. Could be good reasons why it isn't being installed in AZ market. The only explanation we've gotten, there isn't one available, is obviously not the case.

So my question still stands, what's up with that?

Why no 2012 firmware for the AZ market?

there might be issues between the new firmware and the CMTS gear used in arizona. to be told we're current is wrong when we aren't.

Even though Cox does operate a nationwide data service updates are often pushed based on the home area NOC operating procedures and can be affected even for different hardware versions. Version one of the hardware may have had a small design flaw where version three had a different flaw from the first and a different firmware was issued to each one so as to allow the hardware to still function. The firmware for version one is not compatible with the hardware for version three. The same thing is true with motherboards and many other devices.

why do you want different firmware? What's wrong with what you have now?

Sometimes firmware updates will fix minor problems that can boost the speed and reduce the latency with a particular product. No modem, router, or network is perfect which is why firmware is updateable in the first place. Sometimes making a very small change in how the code is written and compiled can make drastic changes in the device. Everyone is ALWAYS striving for a more stable and faster connection and if there is an update they want it.

I fully agree, sometimes older firmware has more stability and the new one may have more features but those features just cause more problems. If it ain't broke don't fix it. . . but if it is broke fix it fast.

It would be handy if the modems had a "update now" that just sent request for newest firmware. That way the ISP had full control of what firmware, and the user could still check if the latest one for their device is loaded. I know that sounds far simpler then it probably actually is, but just a thought.
