HUAWEI HG610 modem


[link to this post]
 
I just recived my HUAWEI HG610 modem today that I ordered from ebay. It seems very buggy. I had nothing but problems just getting into the interface. Then even when I did manage to load it up. it would not recognise the default password and username to start with.

Pic here or it http://i1270.photobucket.com/albums/jj613/07richard/...

Anyway I wanted to test it with my current isp and as it does ADSL 2 and + but I can't even find where to put the username and password in. Where is it? I have to use PPOA not PPOE.

The other thing, it asked me at one point to upload some template. Do you need isp template to work properly?

Any tips or advice on this modem?

Smashing informative pix but one of its GUI would be more pertinent to your enquiry.

I used that photo to stop confusion with the similar HUAWEI HG612 version. I have taken some screen grabs if you want to see what it looks like. Nothing special. Not as easy as some routers I have used.


Main UI
http://s6.postimage.org/wal44om0x/HUAWEI_HG610_main_...

This is the remote viewer I believe. Info in boxes already there.
http://s6.postimage.org/gnosu71xd/HUAWEI_HG610_remot...

And this is the page that appeared while I was having no end of trouble, trying to log in to the UI the other day.

Thanks now found them. I still need to get some settings from my isp as this modem don't like some things left blank.

I have got the UI to work now but at first, had to connect ethernet cable to port 4 to log in, not port 1. It could do with a firmware update but don't think you can get any for that.

Still a bit buggy but ok and may work better when I get fibre. smile

I don't know anything about your modem but you need to go to the Basic configuration pages as BatBoy said.

'Sir, please,' she said ... 'Will you not share your wisdom with us?'
'I have no wisdom,' he told her.
'Your experiences, then?'

There's no confusion, it looks like the web GUI is the same as the HG612.

What you think of a remote viewer is simply the TR069 management interface.

What you described as a template update in reality is the firmware upgrade wizard that you inadvertently started.

Duh???

Pix 1 is what you want.

Pix 2 is irrelevant to you query. It's remote management anyway.

Pix 3 is not strange at all. It's for flashing new firmware, but why you went there I can't imagine.

All present & correct on most routers but presumably not the primitive ones you are used to.

Ray don't be silly please, it's all relevant as it about the HUAWEI HG610 modem.

Did you actual read what I said and what batboy's reply's to me were? I posted them other photos as I was talking about the other problems with the modem. At least Batboy gives me constructive replies and help. Shake head.

I have never used the 612 so was not sure if it would be the same UI.

BTW This is the IP for the user interface on this modem http://192.168.1.1 and the one that I did have trouble getting into.

I am now posting this on the HG610 modem. smile My isp did not support all options on this modem, so had to try things out.

This is the part I am not sure about but the settings on there are what I am using now.
http://s6.postimage.org/sopem9sap/parts_not_sure_abo... Seem to work ok.

And here is my line stats from old router.
http://s6.postimage.org/hiqi7ksqp/other_router_stats...

And the HUAWEI HG610.
http://s6.postimage.org/5yq9ta935/HG610_modem_stats_...



No way can I get 14meg. I think my speed maybe a bit slower on the HG610. May need tweaking as some setting i'm unsure of. smile

Does the Help work?
Service Type

It is used to configure the ATM Quality of Service(QoS). When the ATM QoS is set to CBR, rt-VBR or nrt-VBR, you should also configure the Peak rate, which specifies the upstream peak cell rate in cells per second. When the ATM QoS is set to rt-VBR or nrt-VBR, you should also configure the Support rate, which specifies the upstream sustainable cell rate, in cells per second, used for traffic shapping, and Maximum burst value, which specifies the upstream maximum burst size in cells.

Yes just tried it but never taken any notice before. TBH that is a bit above my head as I have not had to do anything like that before.

Rest I have done, other than path0 path1. A bit silly but does affect your connection somehow.

I am following this with interest as I have one of these as well and so far my using it has not been without problems. I am very interested in seeing how you get on and whether or not there are any issues with your HG610.

Doesn't really matter now as I may be moving to fiber in the next few months.

The modem works but if I get fibre, i'm sure most of the setting's will be used. As the HUAWEI HG610 is a VDSL modem, ADSL+2 is not likely to use all the features anyway.

Will see what it's like if/when I get fibre. smile

Anyone know how to get this modem working with PN fibre? I have entered my login isp details but won't connect. I don't even know what the right setting are or what settings I need to use.

As I said before, I got it working on my old isp but that was ADSL+2.

Thanks. smile

FTTC uses PTM not ATM. Do you want to set it up as a modem or a modem/router?

I wanted to set it up to start with, just as a modem. So I can then use all the ethernet ports like on a router.

Thanks got it working now. Still had trouble trying to log in again. It would not connect right away and no internet light on but is going now. So I can confirm, this modem works on PN fibre.

Is SRA or bitswap anything to worry about? SRA has a tick in the box.

Here is my line stats but weather it's like my ECI version, only time will tell. I can't compair with the ECI version, as it's locked.

Will post in PN forum as well for a pro to take a look at. smile

Glad you got it working. You want Bitswapping ticked.
Looks like your upstream is capped by the ISP.

Re: HUAWEI HG610 modem


[re: BatBoy] [link to this post]
 
Yes I did that. Well it works but not for long. I must have a faulty modem or maybe some setting are not quite right. It will stay connected for a few hours and then I get, no connetion/my internet is restricted in the task section. Same on both XP and windows 7. I can still log into the modem on win 7 but thats about it.

It could also be getting too hot and failing, like some of the old thompson routers used to.

Repair or renew IP does not work. Windows can't repair it. I may have to try and get an unlocked ECI version or the HG612 instead. I can use the HG610 for line stats only but no good as an always on modem.

What a shame. frown

I got my full line stats yesterday before I lost everything. See here http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/plusnet/t/4190815-r...

Edit: I just wanted to say that, my web browsing seemed/felt much faster with the HG610 only. Less lag.
