    They’ve done this twice now. The difference I have seen is that the backhaul is much faster than before between my Zyxel routers.

    Hi

    Yes have noticed that also, before i had perfect distance, after the last updates i need to move the routers further away from each other.

    Hi @Zyxel_Kelly. Thanks for the link. It would be great if a link can be put on here on the same day when new firmware is released.

    Anyway, the firmware notes states that it fixed just one issue. But, in a good way, it has greatly increased the back channel speed between the two routers. Were there other underlying fixes made as well?

    Hi @Zyxel_Kelly

    Always lurking around on the forum, the Multy X is performing excellent, and as MIBSWE mentioned the  you have  somehow increased the back channel speed between the two routers, very good to improve something that was excellent even before.

    My back channel speeds were averaging around 120 to 140mbp/s and now it’s above 400! So, I’m happy if those numbers are real.:)

    Further to the new version yesterday, it looks like there's another update today? My app is telling me that V2.00(ABKJ.2)C0 is available for download. Yesterday's was V2.00(ABKJ.4)C0. I'm a bit disconcerted by the seemingly smaller number in today's version (.2 as opposed to .4 yesterday), and the fact that the .2 looks like an older release from 23 April 2018.

    So has the .4 update been pulled and I should apply the .2 update again?

    I've just checked mine - I already have V2.00(ABKJ.4)C0 installed.  I too have received notification that V2.00(ABKJ.2)C0 is available.  Is this a downgrade?  If so, what is wrong with the .4 version?

    Current config:

    Dear All,
    Currently, the latest available firmware is V2.00(ABKJ.2)C0.
    FW: V2.00(ABKJ.4)C0 has Guest WiFi issue, we're fixing it. And we will plan to release new firmware around the middle of this month.

    Thanks for the response. I think I'll stick with the pulled ABKJ.4 release then, because I don't use the Guest Wifi feature.
