Re: planning to get myself an unlocked openreach modem

Connect it to a PC using an ethernet cable to LAN2. It doesn't need to be connected to the master socket.

Set the PC to have an IP address of 192.168.0.12 with a netmask of 255.255.255.0 and set the DNS servers to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

Then open a browser and browse to http://192.168.0.1

If that doesn't work remove the cable from LAN2 and try it in LAN1 - see if that works.

Re: planning to get myself an unlocked openreach modem

if using a Mac open the terminal, on a PC click start then type cmd into the search bar. Once the black box is open type telnet 192.168.0.1 then

Login : admin

Password : admin

ATP> sh

then type xdslcmd info --stats and you'll get all the stats you need.

Re: planning to get myself an unlocked openreach modem

Its the "bt get stat" command on the eci that spills out a load of line info.

 

 

"There is something about iptables/masquerade methods , to aviod using a switch...." 

 

Finally figured it out - you  have to type the settings into a  capable router's admin via telnet.

"ifconfig eth0 netmask  & Iptables -I POSTROUTING -t nat -o eth0 -dj MASQUERADE"

Re: planning to get myself an unlocked openreach modem

Hello all.  I'm a new BT customer, just moved out of a cable area, and I'm on infinity 2, although getting the speeds of 1 so might downgrade.


Stumbled on this thread after googling issues with HH5 and disconnects.  Have just ordered an ECI 1B off that popular aution site you all keep mentioning.  Hoping it makes the line more stable and stops the disconnects. New modem should be with me tomorrow so will keep you posted. I've got a cable router from where I used to live so this should do fine plugged into the ECI modem.  I then plan to keep the homehub as a pure wireless access point as despite its disconnecting issue the Wifi is very quick indeed for a ISP supplied device.


One quick question.  As the connection stays up, does your IP remain the same for longer or does it still change about 2 times a day?  I use a DDNS services to keep my dynamic IP and a domain name in sync but its not able to keep up with the constant changes.

 

This thread is an invaluable resource, thanks to everyone for the continued updates and commentary.  As someone who's just jumped in it really is nice to see such detailed testing and feedback. Normally these sort of threads stop at 2 pages with no clear resolution!  This one keeps on giving.  Top work!

 

Cheers


Joe.

Re: planning to get myself an unlocked openreach modem

Which openreach modem do they now supply on new installs for other isp's or are they issued to match the cabinets ?
