Well done to johnson for successfully modifying the FW with respect to baby jumbo frames capability and to meritez for having the courage to test despite the possibility of a "bad flash" and the associated recovery issues.

Have not loaded the modified FW on my spare 1312-B10D as it's based on the V.5.13(AAXA.8) revision with modified GUI which I don't like and I don't currently intend to put the router on line, however, the ping test method as supplied by meritez prompted further research ref. usage in a Windows environment, found this information:

https://interworks.com/blog/tlester/2010/12/29/test-jumbo-frames-how-tell-if-9000-mtu-working/

This command line worked on my 1312-B10A which is not baby jumbo frames FW modified:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>ping -f -l 1472 198.41.215.162
(the second command line option is lower case "-L", upper case "-L" won't work)

For reference, ping on 1312-B10A with 1464 bytes requested:
Code: [Select]
C:\WINDOWS\system32>ping -f -l 1464 198.41.215.162

Ping statistics for 198.41.215.162:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 29ms, Maximum = 30ms, Average = 29ms

For comparison, ping on 1312-B10A with 1465 bytes requested:
Code: [Select]
C:\WINDOWS\system32>ping -f -l 1465 198.41.215.162

Pinging 198.41.215.162 with 1465 bytes of data:
Request timed out.
Packet needs to be fragmented but DF set.

Ping statistics for 198.41.215.162:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss),

Probably very much stating the obvious here to the better informed forum members, however, I was not aware of the packet frame size ping testing method so hopefully this will act as a guide to lesser informed parties (such as myself) who may wish to implement / test  the FW modification on their 1312-B10D's and are running in a Windows environment.

@ johnson

Works fine thank you:

Great stuff!  :drink:

tiffy if you ever feel the itch to have jumbo frames on your B10D just request the source for the older GUI firmware from zyxel and post the link. Its no trouble.

Many thanks for your kind offer, most appreciated, didn't realise that ZyXEL would actually release their source code until meritez's post, will certainly keep that in mind as I have such a dislike for the latest ZyXEL FW GUI.

AAXA.10 has just been released.

AAXA.9 has been skipped because they broke the WPS button according to the changelog.  :lol:

AAXA.8 is worth upgrading from as it dropped ipsec vpn connections.

@meritez

Many thanks for the update information.

I presume that FW revision AAXA.10 still permits DSLStats interface remembering that rev. AAXA.7 did not ?

Wonder if rev. AAXA.10 still uses the "new" GUI format which was changed post rev. AAXA.5 from the more familiar and fairly standard ZyXEL GUI used across all models ?
I took an instant dislike to the later GUI revision and as such have stayed on FW revision AAXA.5.

My "spare" VMG1312-B10D has been in service on my daughters VDSL-2 line for quite some time now and as such I can't easily try the FW upgrade, if the GUI remains the "new" format I certainly won't be upgrading anyway.
