Right-hand menu. Instructions and Unlocked Firmware Images.

If you have identified your cabinet, the modem will be the same make.

Look at the FTTC cabinets here http://www.robertos.me.uk/html/street_cabinets_etc.html and see which make you have, now I've realised that I'll have to check mine tomorrow.

Edit: My cabinet is an ECI 128, and I'm pretty sure all the other cabinets in our area are the same. So no modem unlocking for me yet. Mind you by the time it goes live, the guys over at Kitz may have cracked it anyway wink

So my FTTC cabinet looks like the following:

Is that an ECI or a Huawei one?

R0NSKI I'm also connected to an ECI cab.

But I've bought a Huawei modem off eBay (~£20 delivered) and it actually syncs faster than the ECI modem.

I've got a fair bit of noise on my line, max. 62Mbps, ECI gives 47-49 IP Profile, Huawei gives 51-53 IP profile.

cheers,

Stan

Its good to here it's improved things, I grabbed one off EBay on Sunday, £26 Inc p&p, one went on Saturday for £14.

Just got to hack it and wait for my cabinet to go live, others nearby went live at the weekend.
