Refreshing Parameter Values

Hi Dan,

It seems that I got {value: 1} and {value: now} confused, after updating my
provisions with this information they are now working the way I want them
to. All except for InternetGatewayDevice.LANDevice.1.Hosts.Host, I'm trying
to update the list of all connected Hosts to the device and no matter how I
try to do it I can't figure it out.

This is the code I am using:
declare("InternetGatewayDevice.LANDevice.1.Hosts.Host.*", {value: now});

Which, from what I understand, should update the whole tree as you
mentioned in your example, but it doesn't seem to detect connected Hosts.
Do you know any way that I could update the list of all connected Hosts to
my CPE?

Thank you very much,
