hairy1: 
All my configuration of the modem has been done with the admin login. It always drops manual DNS servers from the DHCP server on a reboot.


I found that to be the case only if you'd made another change to the base configuration.  Basically I could set the DHCP DNS setting or make any other change or changes  Not both.

Dairyxox: 

The underlying tone of your threads on your modem suggests you want someone to tell you the modem is a POS etc etc.
Nobody is sayng that, the major ISP's deem the equipment to be ok.
I believe Huawei equipment to be almost always good.

Its like comparing a mercedes to a mistubishi, just because one is 'affordable' doesnt mean its a POS.
I've got a nearly brand new modem that is doing similar things, from another brand. These things happen.


Your assertion that it can't be a PoS because ISP deem it to be ok is illogical.  ISPs deem it to be ok because for the price point it does what the majority of their customers want, which is namely the base configuration.  ISPs base configurations have shown to be technically unsuitable all around the world, through the number of routers which have been compromised and used in DDoS attacks and other nefarious activities.

Your point about Mercedes vs Mitsubishi is equally as fatuous.  Cars have to be registered and warranted.  If ISPs were under a similar scheme for equipment they provided to customers, they would not be supplying the Huawei.  As it's functions - like configuring the DHCP scope - don't work it would fail even the most basic of testing.  ISPs under such a regulatory scheme wouldn't be providing Huaweis to their customers, they'd be providing the next cheapest modem\router that actually worked.
