Re: Reasons you can't log into the internal page

I'm just going to throw this out there - I could be incorrect, but:

I imagine if I turn off the TR-069 client I won't get their new firmware pushed to me?

It is always possible that they are going to push it to any routers that are registered on the account regardless of that setting. I have no idea, but CV definitely has an inventory of their routers (as they do with all equipment)

I'm going to wager a guess that they won't be able to push it without that on.

You might also check that WAN logon is disabled and change the default password.

I'm assuming tftping into this thing and restoring the firmware would piss off optimum. Are they lending it to us or is it our to keep?

Re: [OOL] Can't log into router

As far as I know, the router is free for you to use as long as you are an Optimum customer -- just like the cable modem.

I wouldn't worry about that. They are not going to send the router police after you.

It could also be that Optimum, like Verizon, discovered that if they provide a router they must support it; and it is nearly impossible to support a router without control of its features.

I wouldn't blame them for this - for the vast majority of customers having Customer Service operate the router will provide a better service experience than doing it themselves.

Right. And if you need truly granular control of your router, it's best you procure your own hardware anyway.

said by jaa See ProfileI think your best bet is to TFTP different firmware to the device.


Do you know how I would get it back to OpenRG?

Also, TFTPing doesn't work. It times out.

This would be the cheapest and easiest way: »www.amazon.com
