A newly installed Surf SOHO with firmware 6.2 was having problems connecting to a Zoom modem. One of the debugging steps that I took was to reboot to the alternate copy of firmware 6.2.
When I did, this alternate firmware was in a virgin state. I noticed this immediately because it was still using 192.168.50.1 as its IP address while on the main firmware I had changed the routers IP address.
Is this the way it is supposed to work? Or, are both firmwares supposed to reference the same customized settings? I looked this up in the 6.1 manual in section 22.2 but it only discusses firmware upgrades and this is not an upgrade issue.
And, what will happen when the alternate (not running) firmware is updated to 6.2.1 or 6.3 or whatever comes next? Will the newly installed not-running firmware inherit the virgin state of the current not-running firmware or the customized state from the running firmware?
