Glad it worked for you, and your new 3B Huawei, Al!
Some newer docs for unlocking the Huawei have been put together.. There's a bit more explanation about the use of a 'long reset' to restore default configuration.
Maybe it's worth asking John Owen, the author of Router Stats
, what his plans are for his utility, and whether he intends to get it working with the Broadcom 6368 VDSL2 chipset. I would have patched the tool myself, but the code for RouterStats
is closed source and John won't budge on that.
However, I'm some way through patching another tool, DMT,  to work with VDSL2..
It's a case of solving a few memory allocation problems, and trying to find enough real estate on the screen for all the extra data for VDSL2.
DMT was originally written for ADSL, but it has been modified for ADSL2 and ADSL2+. The latter only has 512 sub-carriers. So the Tone Maps are modest in size, and the graph functions of DMT are hard-coded with that tone limit in mind.
Whereas for VDSL2, there can be 4096 tones, potentially. In fact, the Huawei allocates memory for that number by default, even though VDSL2 Profile 8c, as used by Blighty Telecom, uses less than half that tone count. I've scoured the DMT code for obvious hard coded limitations in array declarations.. but there are more subtle issues..
May I ask: do you (and others) have a favourite tool for displaying/graphing/logging subscriber line stats? And if you do have a fave, what makes the tool special?
