Help Re: Speedtouch 585, DNS & DMT (Port 23 problems)


[link to this post]
 
Hi

Running Windows 7 32 bit with BE. I found a program that checks the DNS settings of your router, which suggests better servers. However I've come across a very annoying result. If I change the DNS settings using the web interface of the Speedtouch, I can no longer Telnet or use the DMT tool. The message I get is wrong password/Username (in DMT) & connection lost in Telnet.
The only solotion I've found is by changing the ethernet connection on the router. But I'm now on the last port!!

Any ideas why this is happening and what the solution maybe??

Best Regards

Steven, Chigwell, Essex

Are you using the IP address of the router or the DNS name?

Do a factory reset and then follow the instructions here to change DNS using which ever method suits you

Sorry, don't understand the question!

From the web interface, I go into setup and change the DNS - this reboots the router and that's when the port becomes blocked to either Telnet or the DMT tool

you can access the router either by its IP address or by a name it has enterd in its DNS, so you might put "gateway" in your browser address bar, for example.

What is the best method for a factory reset? Also can you explain why changing DNS servers blocks port 23?

As Yarwell say are you using 10.0.0.138 or 192.168.1.254 or the URL speedtouch.lan (IIRC).

It doesn't.

I'm using 192.168.1.254 in DMT and after changing the DNS settings via the web interface
(http://192.168.1.254/cgi/b/ST/?ce=1&be=0&l0=0&l1=-1 - setup) I can longer use DMT or Telnet to 192.168.1.254 to access the Bebox without changing the ethernet connection to a different port (I'm now using port 4).

Can anyone explain why this is happening?????

so if you reboot it can you go back to the previous port ? what if you change the DNS wirelessly ?
