Any firmware updates for Armor G5

My G5 keeps locking up with red line on top and I have to unplug it and plug it back in to reset it.  Also the usb port is far from robust.  I do love the wifi distance I'm able to obtain with this device and would like to keep it.  I have the option of returning it back to Amazon at the end of the month so I would like to know if there are any updates coming that would encourage me?
Cheers
Jim

    Hello @waldosmiles

    according to ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/ARMOR_G5_(NBG7815)/firmware/ the latest firmware is v1.00(ABSK.3)C0 from September 2020.

    The user guide at ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/ARMOR_G5_(NBG7815)/user_guide/ explains how you can get into the Web Configurator and find out the firmware version you currently have.
         - and how to upgrade the firmware.

    I hope that this is helpful.

    Kind regards,
         Tony
  • I have the latest firmware, just hoping something new was in the works to better support usb device connections, possible QOS and malware services, also help with my G5 locking up.  I love this router and it's design, I don't want to give it up because it drops out.

    I see it the same way. This router is an awesome product but with many lacking features. I look also forward for something like static routing (v4/v6), VoIP, maybe something like VLAN (maybe implemented as "Expert Mode"), better VPN settings (something like site-to-site VPN). And in case of VLAN features it would also be nice to have the possibility to add different addresses on the available interfaces.

    Hello @Asgatlat

    There is some firmware for Armor G5 and G1 in the Zyxel FTP directory at ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/ARMOR_G1_(NBG6818)/firmware/ and at ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/ARMOR_G5_(NBG7815)/firmware/ from 2020.

    I don't know if there is any newer software coming.

    Kind regards,
           Tony

    If the number of buyers increases I wonder how many developers they have to hire to fix things a bit ..
