    yes but no result because the router has been locked with updating to o2 newer frimware i can not upgrade it to generic one which is release 6.2 as in the website in right side says that be customer go to bethere.co.uk but they just supply you with limited firmware which i can do nothing in it

    Call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and have them give you a new Thompson ST 780WL

    So your only other option is to buy your own VoIP wireless router so you can mess with it

    Hey!

    (linux44) just thought I'd say i'm having the sam problem.

    Just connected to O2 last month (20megs package) and I have to say the router situation is very very annoying. The connection itself is fine, although mine does use the Annex M function that ADSL 2+ provides but no biggy there.

    I actually contacted O2 about this before getting the connection and once after it was installed. There response was, as you would expect minimal.

    I've tired messing about with the router best I can without out breaking it but trying to crack there username and password is not an easy task.

    Not sure what you were wanting to change the firmware for, but for myself is need the dynamic dns setting, which I might add is supported by the router. Lucky for me I can sort this out webside.

    Hope you have some luck, and if you do please try give me a heads up

    Cheers

    Hey!

    (linux44)

    Omg how the hell did you get them!

    I rang O2 and they wouldn't give me them!

    Anywayz just to check what firmware you update too. I've tried 6.1 & 6.2 but the wizard says they are not compatible!

    Any Ideas

    Cheers Again!

    Anyone figured out how to unlock an O2 version? I have 6.2.27.2 on my router, but am experiencing some problems. There's some mention 7.x may be better (or worse) so I'd like to try.

    So I took a look at the "recover.bin" from the O2 recovery CD. It begins
    0000000 B L I 2 2 3 Q H 0 nul nul nul nul nul nul nul
    4c42 3249 3332 4851 0030 0000 0000 0000
    0000020 nul nul nul nul O 2 nul nul nul nul nul nul nul nul nul nul
    0000 0000 324f 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
    0000040 ack stx esc stx nul nul nul nul nul nul soh f nul . L /
    0206 021b 0000 0000 0000 6601 2e00 af4c
    0000060 N Z f enq etx G j r 9 / gs ( B S * b
    5a4e 85e6 c783 726a 2f39 281d d3c2 e22a
    0000100 Q 4 ack us si ( j vt : . dc4 etb ^ cr [ =
    34d1 1f86 280f 8bea aeba 9714 0d5e 3ddb

    If I then compare to the original 7.4.1.7 :
    0000000 B L I 2 2 3 Q H 0 nul nul nul nul nul nul nul
    4c42 3249 3332 4851 0030 0000 0000 0000
    0000020 nul nul nul nul 0 nul nul nul nul nul nul nul nul nul nul nul
    0000 0000 0030 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
    0000040 bel eot soh bel nul nul nul nul nul nul soh _ nul / 4 si
    0407 0701 0000 0000 0000 5f01 2f00 8fb4
    0000060 gs ) } U T S us K a ) ` c : syn M >
    a99d d5fd d354 4b9f 29e1 e360 96ba be4d
    0000100 cr 3 m y ! q us j sp ; Q \ fs f n p
    b38d f96d 7121 ea9f 3b20 dc51 e61c f06e

    I notice:
    a) The model number is the same
    b) "0" in the original, whilst "O2" in the o2 version appears further down
    c) The version number is in text from offset 0x40
    d) BANT-R is present in both

    So I tried fixing up b in my own copy of the firmware. However whilst the o2 recovery tool happily flashed it, the process did not complete. After flash I ended up with just just the power light on along with the INTERNET light red, flashing, and the modem apparently dead.

    My guess is the modem refused to load the firmware that had been successfully flashed.

    This "trick" appeared to work on the HH... or at least a similar trick.

    Ideas?
