I love the 546, it does everything I need and when not using the latest firmware, the DMT tool works with it. I don't want or need wireless, in fact I DON'T want it! I have a 585 which I dislike/hate and I have a 716 but cannot find the PSU.
Anyway, up until the last thunderstorm the 546 worked for me very well. You have probably guessed what happened......a fairly close lightning strike destroyed my router, dead! It won't power up. (
Now my 546 has a twin brother, however I cannot get it working with Be* and I'm not sure why. I cannot find a profile that will work on it. I did update the firmware to a newer firmware but not up to the one that I was using on it's twin because I wanted to try a slightly earlier firmware.
Now I don't know whether it's the older firmware that is preventing the profile from working or what.
I tried a Setup wizard from the Be Broadband forum which they say can setup routers for use with Be*. I had some trouble finding a suitable config file in the templates because most would not work. I did find one which went through setup and then failed saying that the password was incorrect. Since then, even though the 4 router lights light up which suggests that the internet is connected, it doesn't work. I cannot log into it, I cannot re-run the setup wizard, nothing works!.......not even the reset button! Holding the reset button in does nothing, no matter for how long. I cannot log in or reset to gain access.
These routers are in very short supply, I'm lucky that I had a spare, but I have not even used it and now it is no better than a paper weight.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the 546 working again?
Using SpeedTouch 546, I have a brand new one available for sale.
