    Changes included in this update (v2.0.6):

    • WiFi performance improvement
    • Add Cloudflare for Families to DNS selection list
    • Add a link on the router login page to allow adblock pause/suspend/resume for each user, without needing to log in the router admin page.
    • Performance improvement for UDP sessions under Access Control (which affects passthrough VPN & gaming).
    • Fix bug in white listing when “Block proxy, VPN, TOR” is on.
    • Fix MTU bug which affected IPsec VPN client connections for some VPN services.

    Upgrade steps:

    1. Have your configuration backup ready. Create a backup of your current configuration file, if you don’t have one.
    2. Click the “Check for Updates” button in the System Settings page. Follow the instructions to upgrade.
    3. After successful upgrade, create a new router settings backup file from the System Settings page and save it in a safe place.

    Important Note for TORONTO-N: If you are upgrading from a version earlier than v1.26, your current configuration might be wiped out during this upgrade because of the WiFi driver upgrade. If you use the “Restore Backup” button in the System Settings page to restore from an earlier backup, please restore only Access Control settings. You need to manually enter other settings after restoring Access Control.

    When DNS Over HTTPS will be avaible at application level on browsers like Firefox or Chrome, parental controlo router as pcWRT, Koala Safe etc… will not filter anymore.

    What can you tell me about this? Is this real?

    @casino You are right. Both Firefox and Chrome support DNS Over HTTPS (DOH). Here are the links for more info:

    Noticeably both browsers have some detection mechanism for managed networks, and will disable DOH when DNS filtering is detected.

    The pcWRT router has built-in defense against DNS bypassing techniques. Blocking will remain effective even with DOH enabled.

    Can you make a comparison table with the new previous modem? What are the advantages of this new hardware?

    @casino The hardware is equivalent to the TORONTO-AC. It has fixed antennas instead of detachable antennas. Flash is 32MB instead of 16MB for the TORONTO-AC.

    The next time, PLEASE, add these:

    1) A simple power on/off button.
    2) A button for turn on/off the wi-fi.
    3) Slot for 3G/4G SIM.

    Thanks.

    I want to show your demo version with some people, but it’s really too old. Update it, please.

    A friend of mine wants to buy your router. What are the benefits of increased memoery flash (From 16 to 32 Mb)?

    @casino Thank you! Both 16Mb and 32 Mb are enough for current purposes. There’s no impact on performance.
