About ADSL Error Messages [Quoted from the Efficient KB]

0x0F PROTOCOL_ERROR: A failure occurred during the ACTIVATING process.

0x14 MESSAGE_ERROR: A message from a peer modem during ACTIVATING could not be understood, had the wrong format, or had a CRC error.

DYING GASP SENT: This usually means that the router is sensing insufficient power. This could be introduced by a power surge or bad power source.

ADSL_OPEN: This command can be given when ATU is in idle or full-on state. ATU enters Wait for ACTIVATING State on reception of this command.

ERROR CODES FOR ADSL_OPEN_FAILED: There are several sub-codes, described as follows.

-- 0x05: UNCOMPATIBLE_LINECONDITIONS: When combination of requested minimum ATM rate, target noise margin, and allowed PSD is not possible on the line.

-- 0x0A: NO_LOCK_POSSIBLE: Unable to lock with ATU-C.

-- 0x0F: PROTOCOL_ERROR: A failure occurred during the ACTIVATING process.

-- 0x14: MESSAGE_ERROR: A received message from a peer modem during ACTIVATING could not be understood, had the wrong format, or had a CRC error.

-- 0x19 SPURIOUS_ATU_DETECTED: A signal on the line was present, but after starting the activation, the ATU concluded that signal did not really originate from a peer ATU, e.g. it received noise that could be mistaken for activation tones. This failure is sent in the ACTIVATING state when an error occurs before the first message covered by CRC is received.

-- 0x28 FORCED_SILENCE: The ATU received a message from peer ATU during ACTIVATING to be quiet for one (1) minute.

-- 0x2D UNSELECTABLE_OPERATION_MODE: The ACTIVATING protocol has not succeed in selecting a common mode of operation.

BT (British Telecom) locks access to their 5861 with crippled Firmware.

Visit here »5861.uk-bug.net/ for all the details on working with the BT 5861 including unlocking the unit and updating the Firmware to an uncrippled version. (Thanks to eusty See Profile)

Note: Since the »uk-bug.net web site is abandoned and gone a few (a very few) pages have been discovered at the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine at »Web.Archive.Org but not all the links or all the images work, however the text of the articles appear to be complete. If any content is missing then it is gone/lost as the Web Archive didn't save it. There is no other known archive available.

In case your 5861 Router doesn't have the default firewall scripts, you can download:

minsec.txt
medsec.txt
maxsec.txt

From the Efficient Knowledge Base. Just download the firmware zip and they are included along with it.
