NotReally: Thanks Lucky015.

I'd raised it as an issue shortly after I got VDSL installed back in Feb and that was the answer given by a Vodafone rep. It is a WD Elements Desktop external hard drive with an external power supply. Website says its USB2 compliant so that should mean less than 0.5A? Either way it was crashing the modem but worked flawlessly on a server (and any other PC I plugged it into) so does that mean it is the modem at fault?

Not worried now as I've got a working solution but was interested to see someone else had a similar problem.

Cheers.


If it has the WD tools and backup stuff that runs on the drive when you plug it in remove those and you should be good.

Does Vodafone have a generic firmware file for the HG659 modem?

I'm wanting to flash it with fresh firmware to see if it solves my issue of PPPoE disconnections as well as the WiFi not allowing traffic to pass through.

Not sure if this has been discussed but the admin interface is active on the public interface? You cannot login but it is there and if you click status information at the bottom of the login screen you can find out sids, connected devices etc. Seems a nasty security hole and there does not seem to be anyway to disable it.

i have the same issue with my wd elements 2.5" hdd. It's USB powered and works fine on my pc and rasberry pi etc. However as soon as I stick it into my modem it crashes my connection. Any way to get it working?

I also had the HG659 connecting to 2talk, and had to hard reset it now I can remember how I got it to work...any suggestions or anyone else get it to work?


TimA:
Ruphus: I also had VOIP setup on the HG659 with 2Talk this morning. I configured the router for ADSL and thought I'd have a go setting up VOIP. Followed my nose using the old HG556a as a reference and bingo. Worked fine. Now that I've been switched over to VDSL, it's no longer working.


Should have never worked with ADSL or VDSL with another providers VOIP. Its hard coded in to register solely to the Vodafone servers.

I still have mine setup even through it doesn't work with VDSL. You'll need to setup the VOIP provider and voip number.

Thanks can you post exactly how you setup or even take a backup and post the config file. I have tried everything and I must be missing something simple...and it's driving me nuts! Even some screen shots would be great.

Thanks for your help.

Ex-VF employee here, Its locked down to VF VOIP only. No way around it. You might have had an early build when it might not have been. Reset cause it to re activate and update firmware.
