I know there have been a few posts about the modem firmware and who's on what version.  I talked to Beau last night about this and he called there NOC and they pulled up the stats on my modem and said that software version UT_2.2.0.2.0 is the current standard version.  For those of you that have anything else newer then that (Labs, Jep, Everett) are on a test firmware.  So if anyone has seen there post talking about the firmware and see that you are still on 2.2.0.2.0 that is fine and there's nothing to worry about that you don't have a newer version.

Have you noticed any usage spikes within the last week? I too have this software version and if we can not get tech to give us an answer on trouble shooting I am trying to do my own :-) there has been a large amount of people this week with data spikes and figure its beam, software or something to do with the new packages, I know last time they released new packages for this area I got the same data spike.

I don't know according to what Beau told me that the NOC said 2.2.0.2.0 is the current standard version.  He did say that anything else is a test usually pushed out to one or two if different beams or sometimes a group for testing.  But in my case i am stuck where I am :/

I suspect the version of the modem firmware used is dependent on the Accelenet server your beam is assigned to - there's a client component (embedded in your modem) and a server component (the Accelenet server).

Back in January, those of us going through the Salt Lake City server experienced first hand the problems associated with incompatibilities between the client and server, and some of us are still awaiting an answer/announcement of the "confidential" media storage device section that briefly appeared with 2.2.4.0.5 - it's still there just hidden from plain view.

Media storage device? What's that? It's a device to store media on, but that's not important right now and don't call me Shirley!                 .

Rollouts of new firmware are often coordinated over weeks or months.

Did they roll out the new packages for your area? That might be why you are at a different software version

There are different reasons people will see different modem versions, but if you're on 2.2.0.2.0 you are not missing out. :)
