I have just got hold of a new (locked/factory setting) HG612 that I want to try on my FTTC line, currently with TT but soon to be BT.
My forst job was to try and unlock it and get the web gui going.
I flashed the webgui firmware following the guide on kitz.co.uk.
It all seemed to work and I got access to the web gui but when I started changing configs to suit my needs (I deleted the TR-069 wan interface and enabled LAN port 2 on the other one.
Now I can no longer access the web gui
I have tried re flashing both the webgui firmware and the default (locked) firmware and the flashing process seems to go ok in that I get to the upload screen, select my file and it seems to go through the process as I get the screen telling me it's uploading then the screen says the page is unavailable (presumably where it reboots). From there I can't get to the web gui at all, apart from going back to the firmware upgrade page.
The only thing I notice is that I don't see any light activity on the LAN2 port while this is happening. Is this normal?
I'm connected using a windows 10 laptop, firewall off, static IP of 192.168.1.100 Subnet 255.255.255.0. with nothing else connected.
Have I bricked it? Is there a file I can flash to get back to a default stating point again?
Any help much appreciated.
