Telnet router without using Routerstats


[link to this post]
 
Is there any way that I can Telnet my Netgear router without using Routerstats
I have win7 home and telnet client is enabled on Windows features.

Scripted TELNET


[re: Anonymous] [link to this post]
 
Yes! 1st do the following in your browser URL bar: http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?todo=debug then you can manually telnet 192.168.0.1.

However if you are after a more auto method, you may be interested in this, that I worked out.

Run this soon after Enabling Debug on the Netgear router (sometimes it times out):
TST10.EXE /R:NETGEAR.SCR /O:NETGEAR.OUT /m
(TST10 is a simple TELNET Scripting program) where NETGEAR.SCR contains:
192.168.0.1
WAIT "#"
SEND "adslctl info --show\m"
WAIT "#"
SEND "adslctl configure --snr 65536\m" /* COMMENT: Edit for reqd. SNR; this one is 0 */
WAIT "#"
SEND "\m"
WAIT "#"
SEND "exit\m"
I would have liked to parametrise that --snr figure but can't. Also looking at automating the Enabling Debug of router.

Sure you can - just have a different NETGEAR.SCR for each SNR you need

Yes, but that's hardly parametrising it.

Another way, that I used to use, was DMT. That automatically sets the debug status, then in the Info2 and Info3 tabs you can set the various telnet commands you use, as there are several drop-downs. They all remember their last command.

So for SNRM tweaking I just had one set to adslctl configure --mod 2 --snr 5, and altering the 5 was hardly difficult.

It's a pity DMT doesn't work with Netgear DG834G v3, according to kitz it's v4 only.

I have a v3. It uses different firmware and you can't muck about with the SNR margins.

eta: should have read the whole thread. I see the SNR margin comment is irrelevant.

Get a version of curl.

curl --basic --user name:password --url http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?todo=debug &>/dev/null

to enable debugging

Ah!

I have to accept what you say, but it surprises me. I could have sworn in the past we have had telnets into v3s, and DMT is just a GUI for telnet. Where does kitz say this? On a quick look I don't see it.

The telnet commands are different of course, but they are in the drop-down lists.

The v3 has different firmware (different chipset) and doesn't provide the sort of stats or control that DMT needs.

For instance adslctl configure --mod 2 --snr 5 is a meaningless command on the v3.
