Re: [BC] V1000h and Unblockus.com

Thanks for the info Mike_C and Sindows7.

Telus pushed it's .57 FW into my V1000h some weeks ago. Safe to say that bridging is not possible with that in place. So if I try loading the hacked fw package that Sindows recommends, and things don't go well, is there a chance that I might brick this thing?

Jeepers. It shouldn't be this difficult to simply gain the ability to set your own DNS. What a nightmare.

A brand new Actiontech DSL Gateway can be purchased for $59 from Amazon. I wonder if it would work with Telus DSL.

I'm confused. I've read that others say that bridging with the .57 FW works exactly the same as with the .55 FW. Are you doing something wrong/different from the others that have gotten it to work?

zajacz,

As far as I know, you cannot bridge the Actiontec V1000h with the default Telus firmware on-board. At least that seems to be the general consensus. If you know otherwise, please give us all specifics on how to do so.

BCer,

When you say you have tried to bridge the Actiontec V1000h with the default .57 Telus firmware, how did you attempt to do it?

If you have the Optik package, then this router from Actiontec will probably NOT work as the Optik DSL is a VDSL, and not ADSL.
