Is the firmware on the website the revised firmware? There is a bit of confusion due to the firmware version numbers being the same.

I was thinking that.  The release notes have changed but the firmware size and compiled time/date are exactly the same


Modem: Vigor 130 | Routers: R7800, R8500 & R9000 | ISP : Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra
Powerline: PLP1200x4 PL1200x6 | WiFi Extenders: PLW1000 & XWN5001

Yup, i noticed this too. Have they accidentally uploaded the wrong one?
What changes are in the revision notes from the previous one?

The re-uploaded firmware is exactly the same as it was before it was removed (hash identical), and the contents of the release notes are also the same.

Hi

 

One this I noticed with this router update is that the first ping to anyone is always higher than the rest.

So what were the problems? Is the firmware on the download section the re-released version?

yes this is the original the engineers couldn't reproduce the issue that was reported for the reason it was taken down. According to the engineer the issue is related to iOS9.1 and user’s Apple TV since it does not seem to support 5G connection at lower channels. that they took it down so it was put back up.
