BETA 423RC4 (For EU GEN1/GEN2 models only) - I don't have a DrayTek link so I've put it on a cloud-share at:
https://c.gmx.com/@947635074856129735/nv_3yRDJRLSETI0veFoW1w
It would be nice if DrayTek could include a list of fixes with these releases!
Update: Apparently DrayTek (Germany) are collecting debug info to try & solve the VDSL syncing issues.
This firmware has the following feature to do this:
Our G.fast router Vigor166 supports collecting DSL debug logs since firmware version 4.2.3.
To help fix DSL synchronization problems, please create DSL debug log and send this to us for further analysis.
Below are the steps to collect the DSL debug logs.
1: Open the web console and enter the command "adsl idle dti_on" to enable debug mode, then enter the command "sys reboot" to restart.
2: After the Vigor166 has started, open the web console again and enter the command “adsl idle dti_on” again.
3: Connect the VDSL line to the Vigor166 and wait 3-5 minutes.
4: In the WebUI under Diagnostics >> DTI log download, click on Download. The log name is "_dti_training_0_0.bin".

Yeah I've gathered a few logs for them over the last week, hopefully they can work out what is going on.

**My connection is now down to 46Mbps from 69Mbps.

Can i just ask if you are getting a lot of resyncs.  I watch my xdsl link times go from 1 up to max of 6 I have had in a day. This is on the beta firmware r4786_792_63b4abf00_beta.  Don't seem to be getting the 2am resync for the data logs update to BT servers at the moment either i am putting that down to the resyncs in the day.

I am also in the process of getting logs. Slow process but hopefully we will get somewhere..

No, my connection seems to be stable but I'm getting a massive drop in sync speeds.  The firmware I've been provided is a debug version, I need to get some logs using the alternate modem codes which I will attempt at the weekend, I tried it last week and it was hit or miss if it would generate the required log codes.

Quick update on this buggy firmware: last few days due to repairing works at home, I had to switch off the mains electricity a few times, and once back up, each time the modedm re-synced at a slower speed (after last time it dispalys a sync speed of 14,156 Kb/s)... well, actually that's what is displayed on the GUI, but in reality the sync speed is still above 79Mb/s - I checked this morning on the Zen portal and it said 79,666 Kb/s and did several online speed tests which were all above 73 Mb/s :graduate:

I contacted DrayTek UK and they provided me with another beta firmware but problem is not solved, awaiting their reply  ???

The saga continues  :no:

Huh? There's no such thing.

Sounds like the DLM taking action on the line which should NOT be a daily occurrence.

With that firmware they should have asked you to run a command in the console for some logs.  That also had resync issues and i asked if i could go back to the original which they said yes and told me it was only for getting the logs.  So far none of the firmware i have been provided makes any difference.   They have also not been in contact with me since.  So we shall see.
They just asked me to run this: vdsl status lfsg

and that was the output:
Code: [Select]
---------------------- ATU-R Info (hw: annex A, f/w: annex A/B/C) -----------
DSL_UPSTREAM: bTrellisEnable=1 bBitswapEnable=0 bReTxEnable=0 bVirtualNoiseSupport=0

I see Draytek have officially released a new firmware (v4.2.3) for the EU model V166-A.
As far as I can tell it should work for both the GEN1 & GEN2 versions.
See: https://fw.draytek.com.tw/Vigor166/Firmware/v4.2.3/
Nothing yet for the UK version.

It does look like the modem code has been updated, interesting to see how that affects people's connections.  For the moment I'm going to stay on my Vigor 130, so far my connection won't resync faster than 48Mbps, I think I'm going to need an engineer out to reset the line.

The file "Vigor166_4.2.3_MDM1.zip" has got the same two AnnexA modem codes of the v4.1.1_BT firmware.

On my ECI line (Zen is currently my ISP), I tried both 123230_05 and 123210_14 and while with the former I was syncing at full speed (79,991 Kb/s) with the latter the sync was 73,693 Kb/s.
