Re: Actiontec LAN DHCP server losing configuration?

Often when VZ pushes a firmware update to the router, the router will do a hard reset to factory settings before loading the new firmware.

As noted in that VZ thread, if you call VZ for support, one of the first things they will do is remotely reset the router to factory settings.

The only suggestions I have are:
1) leave the router on its default subnet, or,
2) if not using the factory default subnet is that much of an issue for you, run your own router.

Well. That's really shitty. Especially considering apparently firmware updates make configuration backup files useless.

Damn. I should've pushed, and pushed hard, for ethernet. No way I want to run it myself.

I have not seen the reset to factory default with my Rev. I when there is a firmware update, all my settings are intact after every firmware updates.

Where's the option to disable the ability for them to push a firmware update?

This is the 3rd time the router has lost it's DHCP address range.
