Currently he has a Netgear DM111PSP which is Post Office specific. When i was there yesterday I did a router backup and got the username from the backup file, and the password via the decoding given here
Does he need to go to PO for a router or can he go and buy an ordinary router and set it up with the info from the old one?In reference to www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=287031:Backup the DM111 settings to file backupsettings.xml.
When you open this file you will find username and password.
username is of the form "firstname.lastname@example.org m" followed by password"xxxxxxxxxxx"
these are encoded as in the following table:- Character/code
a/9E b/9D c/9C d/9B e/9A
f/99 g/98 h/97 i/96 j/95
k/94 l/93 m/92 n/91 o/90
p/8F q/8E r/8D s/8C t/8B
u/8A v/89 w/88 x/87 y/86
z/85 @/BF ./D1
simply type in the username and password into the appropriate places and use pppoA vpi=0 vci=38 in the wireless modem/router e.g. DG834G and away it goes
What is the PO wireless router like?
Any inexpensive router recommendations?
