Re: Speedstream 5100b hardware configuration

said by d_l:
Are the stats accessible when the modem is bridged (that would make them usable/accessible when a router was connected) or only when it is default mode? Thanks.

In general the stats are not accessible when the modem is bridged since the router would normally be taking all the traffic from the LAN side and sending it to the WAN over its own PPPoE session. Therefore any request to the modem would be intercepted by the router.

One of the values in keeping the router in a mode where it does not connect but still runs DHCP is that if you want to see the stats you could temporarily unplug your router and then plug in a PC to the modem, use the web interface to look and configure and then put your router back in.

You would not be able to see the real time information on the connection (e.g., connection speed) but would be able to see the collected stats.

I have my modem monitoring this parameters in bridge mode. But you'll need to do a tricky/unusual setup.

The modem will retain the IP address once bridged ( from your post at 192.168.0.1 )

You need a computer with two NIC interfaces. Setup one interface to the modem net. ie. modem is at 192.168.0.1 the NIC in the computer could be 192.168.0.5 and set a route.

The 2nd interface will be set to any address in the router net. Just make sure the two nets don't conflict with each other.

I forgot...

You also need a hub or switch between the modem and the router. Connect the NIC with the modem net to this hub/switch.

This way you can access the GUI or the SNMP ( if the B model supports it )

I do not think the unit supports SNMP.

Too bad... version A does.

All Efficient products (Modem, Modem/Routers, etc.) support SNMP that I've seen.

I do not know about their Speedstream standalone brand though (the Routers that do not have integral ADSL Modems at »www.speedstream.com/ )

The 5100b doesn't seem to support snmp (at least when in bridged mode):

nmap -vvv -S 192.168.0.2 -e eth0:1 -P0 -sU -p 161-162 192.168.0.1

Starting nmap 3.50 ( »www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2004-02-25 22:39 PST
Host 192.168.0.1 appears to be up ... good.
Initiating UDP Scan against 192.168.0.1 at 22:39
The UDP Scan took 1 second to scan 2 ports.
Interesting ports on 192.168.0.1:
PORT STATE SERVICE
161/udp closed snmp
162/udp closed snmptrap

Nmap run completed -- 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.578 seconds

That's from the WAN side, right? (that should not normally respond for security reasons). Have you tried from the LAN side?

It also been mentioned that XML is used instead.

No, this is from the LAN side (hence -S 192.168.0.2 which is what eth0:1 is assigned

Well, for now I'm able to get away with some perl scripting using Net::HTTP to get the statistics.htm page and parse out the attenuation and SNR which is working ok so far. It'd be nice to use SNMP directly, though
