Updating firmware thomson speedtouch
The DC problem is more prevalent in the new operating system Ubuntu Fiesty but when I dual boot to Microsoft XP the DC happen 2 times at mid-night. I had seen people in other forums using the same Singnet Broad Band 10Mbps Unlimited getting impressive results and showing all to see.So thinking I had been ripped off for paying almost 0 for 10Mbps Ultimate line but only get maximum 6Mbps..I decided to call Singtel for assistance...If it is a Be router then a software firmware update will be impossible, hence my "no, no" If on the other hand another branded TG585 v7 router is available, e.g. then a firmware update should be possible which was actually my initial response to Anon's post.The only problem is that for some reason the template file for '1 dynamic' is missing when I select 'setup my Thomson Gateway'.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. Other crazy thing is this: If I try and connect by FTP to upload a template and/or use the restore/backup utility at be=0&l0=0&l1=1&tid=BACKUP_RESTORE, it requests a user/pass NOTHING works ..Thank you hi there by the way you will get a bill for £35 pounds for the router if you dont send it back i know i had 3 of them i had 4 days to send them back our i would get a bill for each one /by the way you can not get the thomson tg585 v7 firmware for love nor money /most are pre intalled firmware for the isp provider Anon, Be routers are indeed a no no, but TG585 v7's, branded by other ISP's, will accept a firmware update.I have done it with one Tiscali and two Plus Net branded TG585 v7's, currently using generic firmware 22.214.171.124 for my uno SMPF (partial LLU - G.992.5 annex A) connection without any problems.
(06 October 2008)I had been recently bothered by frequent DC and low then advertised speed of 10Mbps as advertised by Singnet Broad Band using the 10Mbps 3 year plan.
£35 looks like a good deal if that was the reason .
Bob, Yes you a right he didn't say anything about an alternative TG585 v7.
IIRC the login name for generic fw on the 585 is the admin or administrator, maybe with the initial "a" capitalised. My bog standard 585 is somewhere half way across the loft sorry. It contains all the generic options for Administrator that have been removed in those firmwares.
