    Default Qotom-Q555G6-S05 BIOS update?

    Hey all,

    Long time pfSense user with SG-3100 but my Xfinity Gigabit (desktop directly connected to modem I was getting 940Mbit) is cut in half to ~450Mbit just with pfblockerng-devel package. I got frustrated and installed fresh copy of pfSense on older Celeron Shuttle DS437
    And I was getting same speeds.
    Installed Untangle and I was getting 920Mbit
    Decided to try Untangle on Qotom-Q555G6-S05 which should be here tomorrow.
    Do I need to update BIOS on it or anything else to prepare it for Untangle?

    TIA!

    You should be fine. I am running it on an older Qotom mini pc, just not at those speeds. Speaking of Bios update on Qotom, good luck with that. Qotom support is pretty weak. The good news is that I rarely have to use it.

    The only parameter you want to check is whether the box reboots by itself when power is lost.

    Exactly!

    Don't worry about BIOS, no need to update. I'm running Untangle on Qotom for 2 years now, no issues whatsoever.

    Thank you all for the replies!

    Their support did send a link for the download and specific file for Q555G6-S05 but if it works I will leave it alone
    Good point about when power is lost because I came across guy on YouTube who disassembled entire computer to get to the jumper that overrides that! I guess with his version there's no parameter for it. Can't post links yet but curious search for "qotom jumper".

    If my memory serves me well I think I did this with a jumper, not in BIOS.

    I have a Qotom and was able to set it through the bios (although it can also be set by jumper.) MQOTOM-Q190G4N-S07. Maybe it is different for your model.

    Just got my Q555G6-S05 (Intel i5 CPU) and its under unusual spot IMO. Just in case someone is looking:

    I have found on some models, the setting for whatever reason doesnít stick. Didnít know you can do it with a jumper; might be a better way to go.
