My stepson has orange broadband, and had a BrightBox router that he was very happy with. When Orange rebranded to EE, they pushed the firmware updates to routers. My own Brightbox updated without issue, however, something didn't quite go to plan with his.
He phoned Orange and got a replacement, and I ended up with his old one.
We thought it was bricked until I got it home and connected it to a laptop via ethernet and entered the admin IP. I was greeted with a page asking me for two firmware files: http://help.orange.co.uk/orangeuk/support/personal/6...
If you take a look, the help page is of no help at all, lol, as it says simply to turn it off and back on again.
I have mailed Orange tech support who say my stepson must contact them. We would do this but I can't see us getting far as he has had a replacement unit, and I would simply like to use it as a range extender at my house.
I have asked the question on the following forum, but it appears that the OP no longer visits: http://www.the-scream.co.uk/forums/t31206.html
I suppose I could get the firmware from my own Brightbox, but I have no access to TTL to serial converters and would rather not risk anything going wrong.
If anyone on here is able to, could I respectfully ask for some help in obtaining these files?
There is instruction on the forum I have linked to, but I dont know if its the bare firmware getting saved, or if any personal information gets saved aswell.
There is very little information on these units, but I really like mine and think its a nice bit of kit, so I'd love to get this one running again.
I'm hoping it won't be long before I can get DD-WRT on it
