I have a bt openreach modem B-Focus. a picture is attached showing the spec plate and all the numbers.
is there a way to test this modem to see if its actually working properly? I mean by testing it some way by connecting it directly to a computer.? is there a web interface in these devices? or can one telnet or anything?
I have searched on google but all I can find is 'what the lights mean'. the lights all look correct but I can't get internet and I want to make sure the modem is actually doing its job. there's nothing wrong with the rest of my gear. thanks for any advice.
ECI modems are totally locked and are not user accessible. They can be unlocked but it is a non trivial exercise involving the use of a soldering iron.
The Huawei HG612 variant of the modem, however, is extremely trivial to unlock.
What service are you trying to connect to? It won't work with G.Fast.
From an old post try
To make a direct connection from your PC to the modem which will eliminate the router.
Step 1: Remove the homehub/router from the modem
Step2: Connect your pc/laptop into the modem using LAN1 port
Step3: Open network and sharing centre on windows and click set up a new connection or network
Step4: Connect to the internet then click make a new connection Broadband PPPoE
Step5: Username email@example.com and the password as BT
Step6: connect, If it doesn't,keep pressing try again until it does.
Good point well made, I'd forgotten that I unlocked my old HG612 with custom firmware & missed your first post!
As already said, unlocking the ECI looks to be on a whole other level.
