Has anyone else used this new modem and have had any luck with it?

Telecom have replaced my Technicolor Modem for a Huawei one and I'm currently using VDSL with them.
Now I'm having issues with the Huawei modem as it seems to have trouble opening ports for the Plex Media Server.
I have tried to see if I could Telnet my way into the modem to open the ports but can't seem to find any info on the log in details to do this.

I've also noticed the Huawei's line attenuation is higher than the Technicolor and have noticed that my DLM profile has changed to a less preferred one..

You have to set up port forwarding for this to work, the technicolor tg587 automatically does this i assume with UPnP but even when enabled on the Huawei only works when you set up the port forwarding.

I managed to get it working by doing the following:

Log into > username: admin password: admin (default) > then click advanced > then click nat > then click port mapping

external host: ip address of device connecting to plex server
external start port: 32400
external end port: 32400
internal host: ip address of plex server
internal port: 32400

I have attached a screenshot

different modems will read attenuation slightly differently.

ild suspect you have changed DLM profile because you resynced a few too many times and the DSLAM decided your line was unstable, or your line had errors on it, and the new modem handled it differently.
