BQM Supported/Unsupported routers


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

We're trying to put together a list of routers (along with VERY simple instructions if it's possible; longer ones won't fit where we want them; you can share them on the forums with each other though as before)..

This is what I have for the time being...


Supported

Virgin Media Super Hub (Advanced Settings > Avanced > Ping > Respond to ICMP echo requests sent to WAN IP)
TP-Link (System Tools > Manage Control > Service Configuration > enable 'remote)
ASUS Routers (Advanced Settings > Firewall > General > Respond Ping Request from WAN)
D-Link Routers (including TalkTalk; under 'Advanced Network'; may require you to create an ACL; Index 8)
Sky Hub (under 'Advanced' and 'WAN Setup')
Belkin Routers (Firewal Menu > WAN Ping Blocking and untick 'Block ICMP Ping' then Apply changes)
ZyXEL VMG1312 (Maintenance > Remote MGMT > IMCP protocol, enable WAN column)
DrayTek (Systems Maintenance > Management Access Control > untick 'Disable PING from Internet)'
Thomson / Technicolor Speedtouch (via telnet/CLI: "service system ifadd name PING_RESPONDER group wan")
Netgear Routers
Cisco IOS Routers


Not Supported

BT Home Hub or Smart Hub
PlusNet Hub Zero / Hub One (aka BT Home Hub 5a)


Does anyone else want to add any information (or correct anything?)
If specific routers do/don't support but differ from manufacturer that's helpful.. if all manufacturer ones are there, I don't want to include all the links.

Billion 8800NL R2 (Configuration > Security > Block WAN PING > Radio buttons "Enable|Disable" One IPv4, one IPv6. Then click Apply)

You have a typo, Avanced rather than Advanced in the VM Super Hub entry.

HG612 in router mode of course but I forget where. And the 622 that some people have.

Plusnet 582N. Again, I've ditched it.

The Zyxel VMG8924 needs the same settings as the VMG1312.

The VMG8324 will be the same as well, although I don't have first hand experience of that.

Thanks

We're not going to list pieces of software (otherwise we'd need to include Windows, etc..) - if you're going to run pfSense then you will know (same with Cisco IOS actually.. was going to add something like that comment wise but since they are a bit more popular within business, we've mentioned it, but we're going to explain how to do this as it varies so much based on config)

Those fall within this forum's remit smile

The newer ones (last 2/3 years) have a very easy method in the GUI. Although the interface has changed a little since with a block/grid system - the option is as simple.

Would it be possible to add the ability to ping hostnames? Like f8lure...

We want to do this but it's non-trivial so once these other things are out of the way we can look at this.
