Speedtouch TG585 v7 - generic firmware available?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I'd like to use the Be-supplied Speedtouch TG585 v7 with my new C&W service but it's requesting a static IP, etc and my new service is dynamic but requires a login.

Is there a way to install a new firmware (it's currently using the Be Software Release 7.4.20.3)?

Thank you

Anon,

Be routers are indeed a no no, but TG585 v7's, branded by other ISP's, will accept a firmware update. I have done it with one Tiscali and two PlusNet branded TG585 v7's, currently using generic firmware 8.2.6.5 for my uno SMPF (partial LLU - G.992.5 annex A) connection without any problems.

If it's not a Be or O2 supplied router then you shouldn't have too many problems.

First thing is to reset the router to defaults (pin hole in the back) without it connected to the phone line or computer. Then connect it to the pc over ethernet and run the firmware update - see http://forums.modem-help.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=8359 etc.

Best of luck smile

But in his opening post he says it is, and hasn't said anything about having obtained any other.

When you said "a no no", did you mean the flash can't be done, or just that he would end up getting billed for not returning it? £35 looks like a good deal if that was the reason smile.

Bob,

Yes you a right he didn't say anything about an alternative TG585 v7. If it is a Be router then a software firmware update will be impossible, hence my "no, no" smile

If on the other hand another branded TG585 v7 router is available, e.g. Plusnet, Tiscali, etc. then a firmware update should be possible which was actually my initial response to Anon's post.

The 585 v7 IS a BeBox ...

Product Name: TG585 v7
Software Release: 8.2.7.7



The only problem is that for some reason the template file for '1 dynamic' is missing when I select 'setup my Thomson Gateway'. This means I am only presented with two options: 'Static IP' and 'Bridge Mode'. Neither are suitable for my new C&W LLU service, which is dynamic.

I have downloaded the correct dynamic IP template from the Be site (Dyn.tpl), but how on earth do I actually install it on the bebox?
