Hi there,

I just bought a telecom UFB fibre router technicolor TG587n V3 and want to access and modify the advanced configuration menu, which is replaced by telecom with its own customization.

the origninal firmware have far more options available for users: http://help.telecom.co.nz/ci/fattach/get/7766861/1366339106/redirect/1/filename/Technicolor%20TG587n%20V3%20Official%20User%20Guide.pdf

Now I am stuck in the configuration page provided by telecom and cannot do any wan or lan configuration. I have tried telnet to the router but it did not work, maybe it has another root user account which telecom hide from end users. 

Can anyone help provide some insiders information? or do i have to contact technicolor for help,

Thanks!

Sean

Getting there by telnet to the router with default Administrator account with blank password, then tried cmd configuration with help and tab methods, like cisco cmd. it looks like all configuration except privilages are available, so i think i can get it working sooner or later.

Hi Ragnor,
Put it simply, i want to use it as a routing router attached to my core tplink router, wan port should be set to vlan150 and other four ports in another vlan routed to the wan port. I am not able to change the wan's default vlan10 to vlan150 which i created. It gave the link is busy error.
However, i did manage use it on a vlan10 upstream port and had it working that way.

Interestingly, I cannot change the eth_wan default vlan from vlantag to vlan150, always gave me the link is busy error, if i can change it there, all my problems are solved.

eth_wan : Dest: bridge
Connection State: connected Retry: 10
WAN: Enabled Administrative MTU: 1508 Operational MTU: 1508
Priority Tagging: Disabled
PortNr: 1
VLAN: vlantag (which is vlan10 i want to change to vlan150)

What type of internet connection do you have? Generally if it's NZ VDSL or UFB you can set the Thomson to bridge mode and control PPPoE from your other router.

i got the vf fibre to my house and connected with tplink openwrt vlan10. currently i have another vlan150 on the tplink and want to hookup the tg587 to vlan150.

I got it working now by changing the user.ini file downloaded from save configuration page.
It looks like it is easier to just change the user.ini file than using cli telnet to change everything.
So for those who want to change configuration of the router, just go to the save/restore configuration page
http://192.168.1.254/backup.lp?be=0&l0=1&l1=1&tid=BACKUP_RESTORE

edit the downloaded user.ini file, change the file name after finishing editing, restore it back to the router, then it is done.

Also i can add another tech support account from remote support page, but it looks like unless you want to do configuration from wan side, it is not necessary. But the remote support page give you users management page while lan side doesnot.

Anyway, it is fun to play with the router.
