    This information is dated

    Edit: This appears to be being kept up to date now.

    Is there a place to see what is coming in the next release?

    Indeed - it would be good to see some updates from time to time? Most of the FAQs are quite outdated, and the manuals etc haven't been updated to reflect the current offerings. 

    A timeline or planned pipeline for firmware and other news would be really helpful!

    Just wanted to chime in and ask that the router not be bloated with extra network services like samba that will require regular security updates.

    I bought it for the features that were advertised and it works great!

    Hey Amplifi,

    would it be possible to put a release date next to the firmware version title ?

    Example:

    v2.2.1 (June 20th, 2017)

    • Corrected Stand-Alone MeshPoint network configuration issue for Third-Party
      Router setup
    • Internet connectivity status now appears correctly when VLAN settings are used

    Thank ! :-)

    I'm very happy with all the recent firmware releases and feature additions. Question on IPv6 though: There is no information on how this is filtered or firewall. Since IPv6 is 'all or nothing' and works differently from IPv4, can someone confirm that IPv6 filtering is ON? There is no setting to turn it off or on (like there is on Apple Airport Routers) - but that would be essential to keep the inbound connection secure. What is the method of 'firewalling' for Amplifi's IPv6 implementation (BOTH 6to4 and native; and especially 6to4 since now these are IP6 packets encapsulated in IP4 outbound; how are they filtered coming back)? Does anyone know?

    I am mostly concerned about address spoofing with 6to4 (tunnels) as for incoming traffic, the amplify may (?) be unable to match the IPv4 address of the relay router with the IPv6 address of the source. Without filtering enabled on amplify, this leaves it inherently insecure; yet native IPv6 isn't an option yet for many of us.

    Hi Daniel,

    The router's firewall currently blocks everything inbound from the Internet unless UPnP is enabled and opens a given port at the request of a device within the network.

    Hi Nate,

    thank you! Only question; how does that with with 6to4, since it's impossible (?) for the router to match the inbound IP with the outbound request (since it's encapsulated?). Not sure if this is the best forum for this, but appreciate the response!

    Hi Daniel!

     

    6to4 packets are inspected by IPv6 firewall after decapsulation or before encapsulation.
