This release of Actiontec V1000H is the first uncrippled firmware available for TELUS V1000H devices deployed in the field. Only flash this image on your device if you own the device, I am not responsible for any issues that may arise from using this firmware.
Features of the Actiontec V1000h 31.30L.48 modified TELUS firmware
* admin account now has ability to set all settings on modem (bridge, Telnet, etc.) * Backdoor hardcoded TELUS accounts have been removed for security
3. Select the new firmware image in the "select the download file" box by selecting "Browse"
4. Click the "Upgrade" button
Your modem will now upgrade with the new firmware. DO NOT INTERRUPT THIS PROCESS, or you may damage your modem. It may take several (5 minutes) to update the firmware on your modem. This firmware image does not contain a boot loader, so you may be able to recover from a failed flash.
Once your firmware on your modem has been upgraded, you can login with 'admin' account and reset the settings on the modem to disable TR69 client, so that you do not lose admin access on your modem.
He specifically goes after actiontec models used by verizon, I haven't tested the telus fully but this vulnerability + builtin admin accounts that people don't even know about and a device that is powerful enough to actually perform malicious attacks... pretty terrible.
quote: Oct 20 2009.. ........... The vulnerability lies with Time Warner's SMC8014 series cable modem/Wi-Fi router combo, made by SMC. The device is one of several options Time Warner offers to customers who don't want to install their own modem and router to use with the company's broadband service. The device is installed with default configurations, which customers can alter only slightly through its built-in web server. The most customers can do through this page is add a list of URLs they want their router to block.
But blogger David Chen, writing at chenosaurus.com, recently discovered he could easily gain remote access to an administrative page served by the router that would allow him greater control of the device.
That file, it turned out, included the administrative login and password in cleartext. .............
-- Consumer Rights is more than just a suggestion.
Actiontec V1000H firmware does not have any services listening on the external interface. On the other hand, the Alcatel Cellpipe 7130 that TELUS distributes has a separate public IP address with an HTTP server listening on it. -- The more I C, the less I see.

How does one connect to the ALU mgmt interface? Is it possible to see line errors or any other information from the 7130?
Couple broken/bugish things (no doubt you're not at fault, just would be nice to see them fixed): - You cannot disable downstream/upstream QoS. - You cannot disable NAT. - Scheduling Access is broken (Invalid Time entered) (12PM -> 9AM) - RIPv1/2 doesn't function / is incomplete?
Requests: Ideally I'd like the Actiontec to act as a client and as a bridge. I'm assuming this is impossible? I'm using my WRT54GL at the moment with Tomato (Runs like an absolute champ). However it doesn't offer Wireless N. I'm 'cheating' at the moment with Trendnet TEG-S80G switches to get gbit speeds. However I cannot do the same for wireless.
Regardless, this is absolutely fantastic, thank you.
I've been searching and can't seem to find a place that has the Actiontec v1000h for sale and in stock. Any suggestions of where to look? Yes I know I could just go ahead and flash my telus one but I would like to keep it as a backup.
m profile is set up for ADSL2+ if I went in and changed it to vdsl would that matter?
You may end up losing your connection if you change that. The port outside the house will only be operating in ADSL2+ mode.
Bear in mind any of these modifications outside of the basic setup should only be done on hardware you have purchased and are not renting from Telus.
Does telus even rent modems anymore? I've developed quite the collection over the past 5 years from upgrades etc... and they've never once even mentioned they're rented, nor ever asked for them back. I think I've got a 300g, Thomson Speedtouch, Siemens Router/Modem Combo and the Actiontec. This is great news with the actiontec though. Now I have a backup in case my ALU dies (which wasn't provided to me by telus).
needless to say I can't remember the last time Telus provided my a modem on a rental basis?
Why was the post 'Moderated'? It just seems like an absolute disservice to the community to remove it. If it was removed for the attached firmware, sorry. If it was removed for not having functioning links, that's silly.
