  • New version of firmware for our routers is available on Engineering Portal.

    This is a maintenance release, it contains mainly fixes.

    We fixed a number of things in this release. That said, at this time the 6.2.1 is released as update only like the 6.2.0. Which means that the default FW version for manufacturing stays on 6.1.10 at the moment.

    As usual, 6.2.1 brings a line of fixes and improvements on board. Just to point out some:

    • Added support of kernel inotify to enable monitoring of filesystem events.
    • Traffic counters were increased to ...

    Written by Jan Svoboda on Monday 19 August 2019 in the category Release.

  • Tired of waiting for 6.2.0 release? Well, the wait is over!

    The Conel OS 6.2.0 is available for download.

    Please note that the new version 6.2.0 sports a number of major changes, the biggest of them all being the new Linux kernel - 4.14.138.

    The kernel change is significant and while we have done quite a number of tests, we decided to use the cautious release approach - the same we did for 6.0.0.

    What does it mean? It means that the 6.2.0 is released as an update only version. In other words, you ...

    Written by Jan Otte on Wednesday 3 July 2019 in the category Release.

  • Be the first to comment
  • New version of firmware for our routers is available on Engineering Portal.

    This is a maintenance release and we expect it to be the last in the 6.1.x FW line.

    All of our routers (without exceptions requiring operator's certification) are produced with 6.1.10 from today. Other models will continue once the certification is done.

    As usual, 6.1.10 brings a line of fixes and improvements on board. Just to point out some:

    • Brute-force login attack blocking mechanism.
    • Dynamic execution time for automatic update.
    • Support for encrypting configuration backup.
    • Support for OpenVPN Management Interface (configurable).
    • Several fixes for cellular.
    • SACK vulnerability ...
