Replacement Openreach Modem - Still able to view line stats


[link to this post]
 
I had my OR Huawei modem replaced last week as the previous one had failed, no power, lights etc. I had flashed the replacement firmware that allowed access to line stats etc on the modem that was taken away.

Out of curiosity, I tried to log into the new modem (192.168.1.1, admin:admin) as I would have previously done and low and behold it worked, giving me the same access as I used to have.

Have OR started shipping unlocked modems?

Was the replacement brand new in box?

Could be a returned / reconditioned unit that has been hacked by the original user?

Ex <n>ildram , been to SKY MAX - 15,225 Download
BE Unlimited - 21,000 Download 1,200 Upload ON THE LINE THAT SKY COULD ONLY PROVIDE 15,255 DOWN AND 800 UP ON!!!,

Seems likely.

Or it may be one the engineer had removed from a Cease.

Have to see if there's a trend, but that means we need to ask anyone who posts that they've just been connected. As it won't be something 90% would report on.

It appeared to be as I seen the engineer take it and the new PSU out of the box.

ERR, that's an OLD (original) modem by the looks of it. They should not have given you that, but one labelled 3B.

Will just have to see how long this one lasts then!! I didn't realise that the OR Modem was recovered as part of a cease and you would have thought that the old unreliable modems would have been scrapped rather than be recycled.

I'm wondering if having the MAC address of the modem publicly available is OK? Dunno, just asking.
