Motorola NVG510 question

Just changed from AT&T DSL to U-Verse and received the NVG510 modem/router.

I searched and cannot find the setting to make me pingable for my line monitor.

Does anyone know?

Can't be done from the web interface.

If you wanted to root it, it's quite easy:

Thanks!

You say it's quite easy.

It looks very complicated to me.

I may give it a try over the wekend.

Thanks again for responding.

Yeah, rooting isn't exactly easy, but once it's rooted making it pingable is.

Also, remember, rooting your modem invalidates your warranty. So, I would imagine, if ATT finds out, they charge you to replace the modem, since they will most certainly blame any failure on that, even if it has nothing to do with it.

Everything worked up til the login

When I telnet, I get to the login and type "admin"

However, I can't enter a password. I type and nothing appears.

Is it me, telnet or has this been disabled?

It's not SUPPOSED to echo anything for the password! Type your password and hit [enter]...

thanks!

The password was the device access code.

Okay let's see if it worked.

Update:

It is working. The line monitor is recording the pings.

That's why I love this place. Members will always step up with answers. Thanks again.
