Hi Folks,

I have a xtra supllied 604T and have moved to Ihug but I can't seem to get the 604 to work with Ihug, does anyone know how to get it to work, or if it will work at all?
Also does anyone have any firmware for it? its a dsl-g604t/tx v.a3

Cheers

I've got their default settings but no joy, I have read somewhere that Xtra supplied 604t's can't be set up for other networks

hmmm that sounds odd. all the usual settings are there to be changed, and in fact, it should just be the username and password?

The issue was originally that the xtra unit would allways default to the xtra adsl extension on my username, to overcome this I flashed new firmware and set up all the correct Ihug settings Ie PPPoAvmux VCI etc etc but it won't connect, the adsl light come on for a few seconds while it interogates the network but goes off shortly afterwards.
I'm flumoxed.......like i mention i read somewhere that xtra do something to the harware they supply so you can't use it on other networks.
I think I need to call Ihug and see what they recommend and also give them more hassle over their pathetic unreliable, laggy and totally unacceptable service, I wonder if their unfit forpurpose service is grounds to drop my contract.

I doubt Xtra would do anything to the hardware, that would take to much time and effort.

What you could do is flash the device with the correct firmware, you need to be sure you are using the version of firmware that is relevant to the revision of DSL-G604T (there is Revison A hardware and Revision B hardware), this might be tricky as Xtra might replace the serial number label on the back so it might be hard to tell what you have (since I don't have an Xtra supplied router I can't help). 
Once you've flashed it zap the router back to factory defaults, this is done by powering it up, then pressing and holding the reset button for about 10 seconds (the D-Link menaul will tell you how long), then try setting it up from scratch.

Have fun :-)
