Rebooted four minutes ago. This time, my laptop wasn't even on. Instead, I was streaming through the Xbox One. Time for my 100th ineffectual call to support.
Why even bother at this point, what exactly do you think they're going to do differently? What is it they say about the definition of insanity? 😉 (Mine rebooted again overnight. so I'm definitely chalking it up to the reintroduction of the Tivo. Maybe I'll try the Rev. F again, see if the same thing occurs.)

According to a document on Actiontec's site, firmware for the Rev. I was recently updated.
Can anyone confirm? Better yet, anyone have a copy of the .rmt?

UPDATE: Contacted Actiontec support and they passed the buck to Verizon, who said there's no updated firmware available. However, none of this explains why Actiontec refers to a recent incremental update in at least two places on their website.

I was having a problem with very slow download speeds (as tested by Verizon speed test, Ookla speed test, and others). Upload speeds were impacted as well, but not nearly as much. Often, the upload speed would be 10 times faster than the download speed. This was happening on both wired and wireless connections. The issue was particularly acute on longer downloads; the initial download speed was often normal or near normal, but would rapidly slow down to a crawl.
I tried rebooting the router and the ONT without any real change. I also reset the router to factory defaults. Again, no change.
What has helped a lot was reflashing the current firmware version to the router by using the "force upgrade" option in the web interface for router management. Speeds are better now. Will have to test for a few days more to be sure.
Hope this helps someone.

I was, and am, running 188.8.131.52, dated 9/30/2013.
And I still seem to be having periodic slow issues. My next step might be to dig out the old MI424wr router and hook that up instead.

Yeah, seems that what you're experiencing is separate to what the rest of us on this thread have been dealing with. But I think you're correct in that it's probably something specific to the Rev. I. I wouldn't be surprised if going with an older rev solves all your problems...it certainly helped people experiencing periodic reboots.

Same thing here.
My network was doing GREAT until I put a new Cisco HD STB on my network in my son's room.
Now, my MI424WR router seems to reboot randomly 5-6 times per day.
Fortunately, when I'm working from home he's not here, so I can get away with disconnecting power to the Cisco STB during my work hours.
Hope they come up with a solution soon. This is kind of a pain...

Just checked for new firmware via my router and got a message saying that 184.108.40.206 is available. Funny, since Verizon swore only two days ago that this version didn't exist.
Anywaaaaaay...guess I'll take a gamble and upgrade. I suppose it can't make the Rev. I any worse. (I hope.)
