This release has been deployed to all units registered for testing. The general market release is scheduled for May 21.

This release of HeimgardOS version focuses on addressing key issues and enhancing system stability and usability across the CX20 and HX40 hardware types. Anchored on our ongoing commitment to improve network management and device performance, this update includes crucial bug fixes, system optimizations, and security improvements aimed at refining user experience and operational efficiency.

Resolved Issues

Auto-Adjust DHCP Pool Functionality [#366]:
Fixed an issue where devices did not auto-adjust their DHCP pool to avoid IP conflicts when connected to a network using the same DHCP pool. This enhancement ensures dynamic network adjustment, improving reliability and reducing manual configuration needs.

Default WAN Interface Configuration [#396]:
Corrected the ‘cwmp.cpe.default_wan_interface’ setting in defaults from ‘lan’ to ‘wan’. This update standardizes configurations across devices, eliminating discrepancies and potential connection issues.

Traffic Segmentation Disabled [#572]:
Due to performance degradation similar to the guest network limitation, the traffic segmentation feature has been temporarily disabled. This ensures optimal network performance until further solutions are developed.

Update Configuration References to Heimgard.com [#276]:
Updated all system references domain to “heimgard.com” to align with the latest branding guidelines and domain changes.

WPS Functionality on HX40 [#522]:
Addressed an issue where WPS onboarding processes failed to initiate, now ensuring that WPS services start correctly to aid in device connectivity.

Removal of Unsupported 6GHz Network Configuration [#562]:
Removed unsupported 6GHz network settings from configuration files to prevent operational confusion and maintain hardware compatibility.

SSID Update Disconnection Issue [#547]:
Resolved an issue where changing the SSID incorrectly indicated slave node disconnections, now ensuring all network nodes maintain correct connectivity and status displays post-update.

Enable Island Prevention Feature [#566]:
Implemented the Island Prevention feature to enhance network stability by preventing isolated nodes from disrupting overall network functionality.

Timezone Support in Router Agent/LXC [#529]:
Introduced timezone support within the router agent to improve rule and action accuracy across various time zones, enhancing features like parental controls.

Ethernet Client Visibility in Heimgard Connect APP [#528]:
Enhanced the Heimgard Connect APP’s network visibility by incorporating Ethernet clients into the topology and client list, providing a comprehensive network overview.

Stability Issues with Ethernet Connection Between HX40 and CX20 [#574]:
Fixed a severe reboot loop issue when connecting CX20 to HX40 via Ethernet, stabilizing connectivity and preventing system crashes during setup.

Known Issues

Master Node Reboots: In scenarios with numerous Wi-Fi clients and active Wi-Fi roaming, there is a small risk that the master node may reboot. Although this issue is self-correcting, we plan to address it in a future release to enhance system stability.

Onboarding Additional Nodes without App: When adding a second node without using the app, the app may not successfully prompt the onboarding process. If this occurs, please wait a few minutes; the SLAVE node will be correctly onboarded and displayed in the topology map of the app.

Issues with Renaming Nodes: In some cases, renaming nodes in the app may result in names being reset to blank. We are currently investigating this issue and will deploy a maintenance release to resolve it as soon as possible.

Cause of Traffic Segmentation on Wireless: Due to low backhaul performance caused by traffic segmentation, this feature is disabled. This means Wi-Fi guest network will not be isolated in a multi-AP environment. Guest network traffic is only isolated on single AP setups.

Routed IPTV Support: Support for routed IPTV is temporarily disabled in this release due to stability issues. We are working to resolve these problems and plan to reintroduce this feature in an upcoming update.

Timezone support: Timezone support is not implemented into Heimgard Connect APP, to be implemented in Heimgard Connect APP by end of May 2024

HX30: This unit are included in the scope of this release; however, they will not undergo testing.


HeimgardOS stands as a critical update that focuses on enhancing network management, connectivity, and system reliability. With targeted fixes and improvements, this version aims to deliver superior performance and user satisfaction, addressing specific needs and challenges identified in prior builds. This release underscores our commitment to providing robust and reliable networking solutions for both CX20 and HX40 hardware platforms.
