Hitron CHITA forgets VMB IP Gateway address when resetting

Joining in


I have the 5 static IP service, but it regularly goes down because the Hitron CHITA doesn't remember the LAN Default Gateway address in the VMB IP Service settings page whenever it restarts (which is usually once a fortnight, presumably doing firmware updates? Very annoying regardless of this extra problem).

My gateway is at and the static IPs are, but whenever the router resets the gateway defaults back to and I have to hook up a laptop to fix it.

Is this a known issue? Anything I can do about it? It's not really fit for purpose as-is, since it's very unreliable.
