So far into day 4, x6 has been working on par with V overall. Might actually be better for me. Attached is some spike that I think might not happen with V. However the rest of the graph looked very clean, cleaner than with V. Error rates are as stable as V [but I don't know yet, haven't tested V yet, just used it for 3 years].
"x6 downward spike 2.PNG" is kind of nit-picking ['logical' graph-view-mode] but there's some truth to it. the other image is a linear and general view of a different spike. those spikes appeared around today and might go away [they fluctuate].

not much conclusion yet though since 3 days to go for 7 days uptime. i think i'll test it for 3 weeks total then switch back to V.

don't mind the errors in the stats, they are external interference [as can be seen that last 24 hours are clean]

i think resilient is the word to describe x6. i've been using the internet, gaming, and my dad as well. no complaints from him or me. downloads are stable. the best way to describe x6 is smoothness. for V it's more like "old fashioned cautions" that get through the hardest times. that's why x6 might not work for everyone. especially since (theoretically) it's a bit incompatible with dsl driver d26a. in practice i haven't seen that "incompatibility" manifest yet. [except maybe in SNR graph spikes... dunno yet]. it also bitswaps much better than x1 and even V. x6 is less conservatory than V. if that makes sense. so it's both more prone to errors but also better results. whether that potential is worth it i dunno yet.

edit: i think the overall approval test is gaming. [on an old game without lag compensation and with real-time sync - named Rakion] hard to observe since ISP's are in the mix there but i'll take that approach in consideration. hard to notice too. but it goes a longer way than watching SNR graphs.

@ johnson, could you please provide an updated custom version for VMG3925-B10B with stats and jumbo frame support in line with the latest available version v5.13(AAVF.17)C0 which was released in 22 Jan 2021? Looks like there were several changes since  v5.13(AAVF.13)C0

Link for the generic version here:

Welcome to the forum, Ok-League-3645!

You might also want to be aware of the thread https://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php/topic,21545.0.html - where software maintenance is also handled. Some overlap, which is my fault.

I have used the GPL form to request source for AAVF.17, but it took a loooonge time (6 months?) last time we asked for new versions for the 1312/8342.

If anyone else has asked and got a copy please share it.  :)

Hi, good news. I obtained the source code for the v18 firmware of VMG3925-B10B from Zyxel.
I had to use this link to request for the source code:

https://support.zyxel.eu/hc/en-us/articles/360017067100-How-to-Access-Zyxel-Open-Source-Code-for-Programmers-GPL-

Zyxel responded within a couple of days.

As the file is 500mb large, shall I send you the download link via PM to do your magic? The link expires in 7 days! Thanks!

Yes please. (And that will hopefully be with my y-axis title units change too, of course, which you very kindly did for me, and which I version-numbered v08. So I will version-number the next release as v09.)

Do you know where the release notes are? Can only see older ones.

Ah brilliant, thanks @Ok-League-3645.

Have downloaded it, just need to get my docker/podman build running again and 3925 out to test.

Looking through my emails it seems I didnt even get a received confirmation, will use the supplied link in future.
