Pepephone has released a firmware update for its NuCom NU-GAN5 router . In RedesZone you can read our in-depth analysis of the NuCom NU-GAN5 router and also our user configuration manual, where you can see from how the wireless network is configured correctly to a complete tutorial to open ports on the Pepephone router.
Changes in the new firmware
One of the improvements that this firmware incorporates is very important since it solves a problem that affects several users. With the current firmware, although the synchronization of the router with the DSLAM is fast, the equipment takes more than five minutes to obtain the public IP address, that is, it takes too long to authenticate against the Vodafone RADIUS through the PPPoE protocol. This update solves this problem, which mainly affects when the synchronization is lost due to a cut, since it takes too long to regain the Internet connection.
Another important change is that now the DNS is taken automatically from the network, the Vodafone central DNS has not been set as it was with the previous firmware. Now browsing will be faster because there will be less latency between users and DNS servers.
In this manual we are going to show you how to update the firmware to the latest official version released by Pepephone for your NuCom NU-GAN5 router.
