When you said "Even if you are able to set it as high as 1500, I doubt very much if it would help. All packets would simply become fragmented" it looks like you haven't read the whole thread.
Loads of us are now happily running MTU 1500 on Zyxel devices, along with anyone who uses the HG612!

Don't take it to heart matey, we are all still learning...  :drink:

That's an extremely stupid naming system... It will not catch on and I won't be using it.

I understand calling 5GHz "WiFi 5".

The above is nonsense though. I can use wireless N on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
A device being called "WiFi 4" gives no indication if it supports 5GHz.
You mean like a router being labelled Wireless N tells you whether it supports 5GHz?
Standards are usually labelled sequentially so anything later in the alphabet is usually higher spec. We had a,b,g and n - so specification wise, if you didn't know better, it would be reasonable to assume ac probably sits between b and g.

You can download the v.28 firmware, modified to have an Eircom header, here:

Hi Jacko and welcome. Iím using four VMG1312-B10As in modem-only mode, router functions disabled, and I am using PPPoE over ADSL2. I run our own contributor Johnsonís PPP MTU 1508 (1500+8) firmware and it works great.

The reason that thereís no possibility of fragmentation here in my case is that the whole thing is inside a PPP and Ethernet tunnel. Intermediate devices donít see IP packets - the PPP PDUs sent could contain anything, not necessarily IP at all. I transfer IPv6, IPv4 and PPP LCP PDUs too. As a real example of something other than IP, PPP LCP PDUs are used as the equivalent of an ICMP ping / echo request and one is sent every second or so by my ISP in order to test that the link is working properly.

I get a tiny efficiency increase because I can cram 8 bytes more IP payload into every packet which helps to overcome the bloat of all the headers. In theory there might be some device out there that insists on sending 1500 byte packets so itís to your advantage if you can handle them, but this is not something based on a known real scenario.

Johnson also out some other juicy upgrade features in that firmware build for me too. Have a poke around in the various threads. Thereís one concerning maintenance, new versions too.

Is there any benefit to upgrading to v.28 firmware specifically for download/upload improvements.

   Thanks

No. The DSL modem code is unchanged.

Thanks for the info, saves the risk of flashing.

Seeing as it doesnt look like we will get a source package for the latest version for some time I went ahead and made a 8x24-B10A firmware with the A2pv6F039x6 from the 3925-B10B as per request @underzone:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/8mnw5s9gtm8wz8w/8924-B10A-AAKL24-jumboframes-oldtelnet-x6.bin?dl=0

Again I don't recommend it for anything but testing purposes, especially as Zyxel have seen fit to update the kernel driver to d26s when including the new adsl_phy.bin. Has the jumboframes patches and telnet to allow multiple sessions, also first with the version string changed - should show "AAKL.24-x6" on the firmware update page after successful flash. Have flashed it to an 8324 but not put on a line, use at your own risk!  :)

Also had a poke around with the new V28 firmware, a glance at the changelog shows maybe one thing of interest that could constitute a reason to upgrade:

Quote
#69247] [BRCM Linux]BCMUPnP vulnerability from 2013

But only useful if you are using the device as a full gateway not just in bridge mode.. and if you are using UPnP (I do neither). So I'm really not fussed about upgrading. The same goes for the new VMG1312-B10A firmware btw. There are no changes to modem code, kernel etc... its identical to the previous release. No idea why they need 6 months to release a source package given there appears to be zero change to the build.  ???
