Re: Actiontec V1000H NCS firmware with A2pv6C035f.d22c DSL PHY

I am running the custom stock-firmware for the V1000H from here...

I set port forwarding for port 20003 to my internal IP, yet when I test it externally, it's actively refused.... How can I get port forwarding to work properly?

I upgraded my firmware, and now the network is asking for a wireless password. I've tried my previous password (which I was using before upgrading the FW) and also the default password that's written on the modem itself. Am I missing something?

If you upgraded the firmware the wireless settings would be completely changed and would be the default firmware ones. You'll need to login and change them. If you know the admin user/pass please PM it to me.

I got in the other day, if i remember correctly, the default username/password for this firmware is admin/admin.

Why are you with Telus if you hate them so much?

Does anyone know what the default wireless key is for this firmware?
My router (initially a modified 31.30L.48) changed the wireless name to "ActiontecV1000H(0280)" and the wireless key.
Please let me know what the default wireless key is (you may PM me if you want).
Here is some additional information:
The security type is WPA2-PSK
Router is using 802.11n
Thanks!

Perhaps because he hates them a little less than the alternatives. The issue here is not whether you hate Telus or not. The issue is that a lot of Telus users are not particularly favourable toward the crap hardware / firmware that Telus forces us to use.

when using this firmware with bridge mode, should I disable the NAT?

anyone?

Unless this router is a bigger pile than I've heard, turning on Bridge Mode by default disables all router features, including NAT. Thus why you would need your own router.

This. NAT only is active when routing is involved. By turning on bridge mode you're disabling routing.

Disabling router features is the point of bridge mode so of course it will disable NAT.

Bridge mode disables NAT, you wouldn't be able to get a public IP address if NAT was on.

If the computers connected to your ActionTec are still pulling private IP Addresses, then you are -not- in bridged mode. In bridged mode, IP Addresses won't be handed out, other than the public IP provided by your ISP (Not starting in 192.168, 172.16 or 10.)

Even though I remember disabling IGMP on my bridged V1000H, I can still see IGMP broadcast traffic denied by my firewall. Is this normal?

The IGMP setting on the Actiontec is only for when its running in NAT mode, it does nothing in bridged mode.

Strange, my pfsense fw keeps filtering these IGMP broadcasts every couple of minutes. 192.168.0.1 is the modem's address.

quote:
Dec 23 14:22:16 WAN 192.168.0.1 224.0.0.1 IGMP
[...]
Dec 23 14:20:11 WAN 192.168.0.1 224.0.0.1 IGMP
[...]
Dec 23 14:18:06 WAN 192.168.0.1 224.0.0.1 IGMP

You can disable that NAT setting if you like in bridged mode but it's not doing anything. As a bridge there is no traffic for the router to translate as it's just passing it through unmodified. There is no public IP assigned to the actiontec so it has nothing to translate to.

For IGMP yes, it does still seem to bridge the multicast broadcast traffic, make sure it's enabled if you have TV service.

reply to Ternerito

That's the IGMP proxy looking for multicast members. I guess they don't actually disable the daemon down when you change the setting. Typical of the buggy garbage in that firmware.

que_ball: No you don't need the IGMP proxy on to use Optik TV, I've tried it with it on and with it off. It worked both ways for me so it may have been something else. That setting translates the addresses in the IGMP join messages, which is completely pointless if the Actiontec isn't doing NAT.

Is there a way to revert the firmware back to the original Telus firmware if anything happens?

reply to TelusFW

Is the only point for downloading is to turn it into bridged mode?

As others have asked, is there way to revert back to original Telus FW should it not update/install properly?

You can download the firmware from Actiontec.
This firmware linked above has a updated part spliced into it.
Since there is only 1 version available for download, the OP is providing the retail download with the useful upgraded part of the latest Telus firmware without the lobotomy.

As for going back to Telus firmware, I am unsure.

@grouptelecom.net

how do i disable the firmware upgrade on the actiontec. I have the stock .55 and i dont want them to push an update on it as i want to bridge it as well

You need to disable TR-69:

»192.168.1.254/tr69.html

So a pretty silly question. I have this running fine but now want to turn on bridged mode so I can run my own router. And I can't seem to find where to turn this on? Yes, go ahead and laugh as I am sure it is painfully obvious

reply to TelusFW

before i go ahead and flash this, does bridging mode mean that I can use it as a wireless bridge?

which means use site survey to connect the WAN wirelessly, and then also be able to broadcast a new wireless SSID?

thanks,

@telus.net

No. If you are unsure of what this means, and you set your unit to bridged then call Telus for help, you'll get stunned silence. The reason Telus sends out these units is so that their csr's can read a flowchart and get things working.

I would suggest if you do these mods to your unit, you should be able to setup and diagnose the gear as if it were your own.
