Re: Does BrightBox Remember your Credentials after Factory R

I still don't understand!
In reply to a post by vimto_girl:
A router using TR69 can normally be plugged into another line then download the login details
Whose login details? The original owner's? Really?
Yes, really.

I don't advise anyone to sell the router on ebay for the reasons I explain earlier. EE do identify an account from the login, it is not the same as Sky where the login is purely a secret share authentication.

In reply to a post by vimto_girl:
Auto Configuration Server. A router using TR69 can normally be plugged into another line then download the login details and even log on simultaneously such that activity and usage will be registered to that user account. I assume the same for EE until proven otherwise.


Is there any way to stop this happening. Can people not contact EE and have them update the details they hold on the router, if the details are downloaded to the router upon connecting, rather than hard baked into the router itself.

Yes, of course EE have the capability of modifying or deleting the server entry. Getting them to do it might not be so easy though.

Just spoke to a "manager" at EE who understood what I required. She said that there was no way for EE to update their server records! I did press the point and suggested that perhaps their 2nd / 3rd line support could make the changes, however they stuck to their guns, that there was no way to do this. It ended in them saying that they will send me a new replacement router. Lets wait and see if a new BB2 (not BB1) arrives this week in the post.

: )

Seems like a waist and a bad business model to me.

Re: Does BrightBox Remember your Creds after Factory Reset

Indeed! Having the burnt-in ACS creds phoning home to look-up in an EE table the original owner's creds is almost as bad as having the original owner's creds burnt-in in the 1st place frown.

This is a very worrying prospect indeed.
