Firmware V1.00(AAKL.16)C0 available here:

ftp://ftp2.zyxel.com/VMG8924-B10A/firmware/

I haven't tried it yet, hope to install it this evening.

Thanks Ronski, correction to second link

I installed the C16 on my 8924 and I found out that I can not longer have access to the busybox shell
The echo && bash does not work anymore.
Does anyone know how to have access again?
Also I realized that the wifi power signal is lower. With the C15 version the wifi is stronger
Again any idea how to increase the power of the wifi

If you login as supervisor, the command sh will open busybox.

Instructions to find your supervisor password here:

Haven't notice the wifi is weaker with 16C0

nice.
That worked even thought i did not know why I was getting into the busybox as admin in the 15 firmware
I tried to change the password from the GUI but I think there is a problem with the page and I could not see the "save" option
For a moment it appeared for a while but when the page loaded completely it was gone.
I think the page is not compatible with the browsers.
I did change the password with the passwd after I was in busybox

Now I issue commands for the wifi power. i.e
 wl -i wl0 txpwr1 -o -d 20
 wl -i wl1 txpwr1 -o -d 20

I want to see the signal strength.
The problem here is that after reboot the commands revert back to their original settings
Does anyone know how to save those in order to be the same after reboot?

Don't think you can save the settings. What I've done in the pasts is to run a scrip on my raspberry pi (which is connected running dslstats), the script either checks the setting and reissues the commands if needed, or just issues the commands at set times.

IIRC I installed ncat in the RPi to enable scripting of telnet commands.

Are there any NVRAM parameters that reflect those settings?
Can we create few more NVRAM variables and save them?
How does Zyxel control the parameters?

Does anyone know how to access the web page of the zyxel when it is in a bridge mode?
Also what it is the con-current WAN mode?

You need two ethernet connections between the modem and the router as described here: http://www.kitz.co.uk/routers/zyxel_VMG8324-B10A_bridge.htm#linestats (this refers to the VMG8324, but the 8924 is the same).

Con-current WAN is used to configure IPTV (eg BT TV) on the specified ethernet port.

Excellent.
I read the article and I want to mention the following in a high level description.
When I put the Zyxel in Bridge mode the NAT does not work and Zyxel sends all WAN traffic to all LAN ports
I will of course connect my asus RT-AC68U WAN port to any of Zyxel's LAN port and I will set it it up to do the ppp connection with username password

Here is the interesting part. From the interface group I have to bridge the modem with the LAN port that goes to the WAN port of the router
in order the rest 3 LAN ports of Zyxel to be freed. At last I will connect one extra cable to connect the one more LAN port of Zyxel to the lan port of the Asus
in order Zyxel to get IP from the DHCP server of the asus


Thanks

I have found that the site at
Code: [Select]
ftp://certified:zyxel@ftp.zyxel.it/firmware/VMG8924/ no longer works, apparently the firmware directory no longer exists. So that route to obtain f/w is no longer available.

For my 8924 I check the following
ftp://ftp2.zyxel.com/VMG8924-B10A/firmware/

You can browse to other directories as well

Yes I'm aware of that one but the Italian site usually had the f/w available earlier.

I use the following link, which seems to get the latest firmware ahead of the UK FTP site
