Re: Salt Fiber Box

Some reports about the new firmware v1.01.15 build42. It obviously fixes a so called NAT-loopback (hairpinning) issue. The described problems above might be related to that. Says also that the WLAN improved. Several posts above complained about the WLAN of the box. Nevertheless, rebooting the box here does not trigger a firmware upgrade.

Après l’ouverture d’un ticket il y a 10 jours. Le 19 février je reçois le téléphone d’un collaborateur Salt qui m’indique que l’upgrade de firmware de ma Salt Fiber box n’attends qu’un redémarrage pour s’effectuer. Ce que je réalise le soir même. Après une douzaine de minutes tout est ok.
Avec le firmware v1.01.15 built 42 le DNS loopback fonctionne enfin. Je peux enfin travailler sur mes serveurs avec leurs noms DNS depuis la maison.
Il me semble aussi que le WiFi est plus solide, j’utilise en // des bornes Apple et je n’ai plus de déconnexions intempestives, peut-être aussi en raison du fait que j’ai bloqué leurs addresses en ip fixes sur la config Salt aussi.

From 2 days ago (19-02-19). I have the new firmware v1.01.15 built 42 installed in my Salt Fiber Box. The Nat LoopBack become possible and more stability and better Wifi. Thank you for this new Firmware. The 10G light speed Fiber Box finally becomes really usable. Cool ;-)

Anyway, AFAIK the salt box uses the google DNS-Servers, what was confirmed on twitter or facebook once I think. But you can't make settings for the DNS in the salt box itself, its practically burnt in. My suggestion is, in the network properties, to set the "DNS-Server address" manually to the salt box, that is, default 192.168.1.1 (you can change that in the salt box in network=>LAN).
Instead of using the usual setting "Obtain DNS Server automatically"

You might give a try.

I had a similar problem a while ago and that helped.

...In the settings menu point "administration" there are also some possibilities to save/restore settings and a reset to factory settings, but not sure if this is able to reset/downgrade the firmware.
Must be read as save/restore personal settings only. Firmware is not in customer's hand but only remotly managed

Given that 10G cards are cheaper than 10G converters why not buy a card with proper connection?

That's what I did but never succeed to get good results or performance
with the Asus Card even my PC is directly connected to the Box with a CAT7 cable.

But how can a card + converter give better results than just a card? Both connector protocols can handle the 10gb/ps and the rest of the card should make no difference.

Can your system itself handle 10gb/s (I mean I can hang a 10gb/ps card in my computer, but still no way it can process that speed.)

By reading the various tweets https://twitter.com/SaltMobile_Care/with_replies it is happening to a lot of us and, one thing seems to be common : The last firmware update to v1.01.15 build42

So yeah, maybe report it as well if you have same problem with this firmware so the tech team realize it is a shitty version

Has got a new episode, it looks Salt finally realized. Here: http://sacha.horovitz.ch/mapping-de-...ec-salt-fiber/ , see comments, at least 2 people report they were downgraded from firmware v1.01.15 build42 to the old v1.01.14 build37 , without any notification.


Might raise some questions about the competence of Salt.

We are experiencing exactly the same problems... also with the new firmware. I called support, they opened a ticket, got back to me with many questions, haven’t heard back from them thereafter...
Over the last couple of days the Salt Fiber support worked quite closely with me, texting me, calling me and today the support guy even personally called to check if the problems are going.

The issue indeed got better and better and as of the last few days we don't seem to have any delays anymore.

During this process, the firmware was updated from v1.01.14 to v1.01.15 build42. But I only realised this today.. so I am not sure whether this is linked or not.

Re: Salt Fiber Box

I'm seriously considering halving my Internet and TV costs, dumping my Swisscom 95CHF/Month for the 40CHF/month Salt (I am a mobile Salt customer).

My two questions are:

1. Would you make the shift from Swisscom to Salt fibre again, knowing what you know now - having made the switch X months ago?

2. Does Salt offer Pay Per View services for sports? I like the Swisscom 5CHF per game option - which I use every now and then. I know Salt is throwing in 3 months free Sky Sports if u subscribe before end of March, and thereafter 20 CHF/month. But its not the same as being able to pick and choose which games you want to watch and only pay for them, every few months.

Re: Salt Fiber Box

On second thought, sounds illogical, no? SaltFiber+Skysports=60 CHF/mt vs. Swisscom 95 CHF/mt, but still with the "bonus" for additional payperview?
Anyway, there seems to be a cooperation between Salt and Sky. Sky (Sports) offers a daily pass, for 9.90CHF however. As this sports fuss is not my cup of tea, I can not tell how well or if at all this offer is integrated in Salt TV. Since they use the AppleTVBox my guess is, there is probably an app for that.


As for the switch most has been said already in this thread.
