Re: Speedtouch TG585 v7 - generic firmware available?

I would expect to load a Be template you use the Restore function. But I advise using the Save first, otherwise you may end up with it dead.

Though as I remember it, they were ini files.

Indeed. The profile settings are stored in an .ini, but the Be templates are in a different format and apparently need to be uploaded to the router via FTP. Not working for me.

So I have my fast new internet connection, but the wrong router! frown

Can any of you wise folks recommend a good router which would be suitable for the C&W LLU network?

If its indeed a Bebox, you can download the firmware bundle from o2help and "upgrade" to the O2 firmware, which should work with C&W wink

Thanks BatBoy, but that doesn't work either.

The firmware installs fine (8.2.7.7) and recognises the Speedtouch 585 v7 as an O2 box.

Problem is, it's asking for the same Static IP, Default Gateway and when you select 'setup', so I can see no option to set it up with the details provided for C&W LLU service.

Or did I miss something?

Ah, wait. Are you able to select PPPoA, or is is stuck on PPPoE?

In reply to a post by BatBoy:

Link Status: Contacting DHCP server...
Type: ETHoA


C&W has supplied static IP, login and password. Everything else should be 'dynamic'.

The Be / O2 box insists on the following: Static IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway.


Other crazy thing is this:

If I try and connect by FTP to upload a template and/or use the restore/backup utility at http://192.168.1.254/cgi/b/bandr/?be=0&l0=0&l1=1&tid=BACKUP_RESTORE, it requests a user/pass

NOTHING works .. tried all the usual like admin, Administrator / Serial Number, etc.

Weird.


So, can't setup it up as dynamic and can't connect to upload any new templates!!
