Hi All,

Been looking at getting my modem (Dlink) replaced with a Thompson modem. What I do need is half-bridge mode or something of the suchlike as I run pfSense.

I believe that these Thompson modems have a PPPoA to PPTP relay function? Can someone clarify this for me?

Cheers
Chris

they do half bridge, i run a couple of speedtouches into a pfsense box, and it forwards the external ip, etc to the pfsense box without any issues.

What about the PPPoA to PPTP relay? This seems like a better option

This may seem like a silly question, but is your end-point responsive to ICMP echo requests?

Hi Everyone,

On the subject of the thompson modem, I was checking something on the web interface and it asked me for a user name and password, as far as I know I've only ever added a password for the wireless. What would the default password for the administrator account be?

From what I have read this is a good modem, but the cd supplied with it from telecom is not all it could be. I was an existing telecom broadband customer who upgraded to the wireless modem, so did not need to do all the "connect to telecome" &"create your telecom broadband account"

Many thanks
GCool

Hi, on the toolbox page, under user managment. also at the top of each page is administrator, when i click on that it opens another page. I am guessing it does not really matter about having a password on it, but I would like to know what it is. Or change it to something I can remember.

The manual I found online has not been much use. It has little to nothing about users amoungst other things.

Many thanks
GCool

Under local user data click on 'administrator', then reset password.


There is however no need to change the password as you are not restricted in the interface.

Hi,

Thanks for that. I did as you said, and get a popup window asking for user name and password, and from there because I have no idea of the password, the page then goes to "you are not aurthorized to view this page" and then I cannot access anything in the thompson menu, to do that I have to reset the modem.

Many thanks
