    The update is a bit hidden, go to "System > Backup / Flash Firmware > Flash new firmware image > Fota CPE" then click "Check Image", wait a bit, then click "Download Image" and wait a bunch more.

    Anyone figured out what the root password is for ssh on these routers? Generally the admin password for the web GUI should work, but that doesn't work for me.

    Seems there is 2 sections
    the CPE board - that works fine and my connection to the router is stable
    then there is the LTE board - it says i can upgrade that firmware but never completes
    that is the issue here, the LTE drops and doesnt recover.

    I'm arranging to return this router and relplacing it with something more reliable.
    Had the same issue with my Cell C router. Stopped working after a week.
    Replaced it with a decent router and haven't looked back since!!

    Hi all

    I received a firmware update from Cell C for this router, which steps it up to v0.0.23 - I was on v0.0.22. Link below as supplied by support.
