Exchange Firmware Upgrades 27th April to 2nd MayEclipse has posted information in our forums indicating that BT in conjunction with Alcatel are due to perform a round of DSLAM firmware upgrades through the dates of 27th April 2002 to 2nd May 2002.
The upgrade should only affect users connected to an Alcatel DSLAM and result in a 30 minute outage. The exact changes in the firmware are unknown at this time, if we do get further information or a list of the upgrade times we will publish it.
This upgrade comes closely on the heels of some ISP's seeing a lot of new users having connection problems, ie. connection works for one login, but after that point nothing seems to work. Whether this upgrade is linked is unclear but we hope to hear more about this problem in the next day or two.
