Hack time? some serial console goodness + get telnet/ssh password.




And see if SNR is adjustable...

.......

Couple of tmpfs mounts for /var .. logging etc, all the logging is pretty freaking verbose, just wasting even more memory.

Runs Dropbear (SSH) but it's blocked by iptables, waste of memory!:

416 root 1556 SW /usr/sbin/dropbear

Removing these rules allows SSH:

Chain ACL_LOCAL_INPUT (1 references)

A few weird services running and listening, haven't dug into it, they 39425 appears to be HTTP:

/var $ netstat -lt
Active Internet connections (only servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State
tcp 0 0 *:39425 *:* LISTEN

tcp 0 0 *:telnet *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:80 *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:22 *:* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *:7547 *:* LISTEN



Firmware is pretty crappy, DSL chipset is crap, even with SNR hack - syncs lower than other standard equivalents.

Yeah it is pretty crap, does ~21mbit/5mbit on a Fritz @ 6dB, that's +1-2mbit better on the downstream and +4mbit on the upstream over ADSL2+ and it's basically the same price so why not.

Originally when it went in I called Slingshot the following day, they just shoveled the DLM bullcrap about how it needs time to adjust, yep it'll adjust that attenuation right out! - ofc nothing changed over time other than the interleaving etc, haven't bothered calling them again.

clearly your happy to tweak, long as you keep an eye on your error rates, well done.


certainly taking it to the extra degree connecting directly to the terminal like that!


what was your line like pre tweaking?

Just got to say it.  Only one of those port 22 rules should be removed/changed to ACCEPT, One will be on the WAN side and the other on the LAN side, you certainly don't want those pesky SSH-bots attacking your poorly built router.

Hey there gentlefolk!
Just got the VDSL from the 26th and have been happy with it, until i started fiddling with it.
I wanted to use the SAMBA, but I cannot seem to find the NAS on my Win7 Ultimate system. But this is a minor issue.
Also, after the firmware update to ver 32, the internet seemed to freeze up, checking the log, seemed that the date somehow reverted to 1970-1-1. and then back to today's date after a restart.
I wonder if I could get the older firmware (ver 28) to reset this issue?

lordjagganath, Slingshot automatically manages the firmware version, updating it over the net, so even if you can get the old firmware to roll back to, it wont stay that way.

Does anyone know if it is possible to get Slingshot (or Chorus?) to increase the frequency of DLM polling as if it was the first few days of the connection? I've now got a DSL-N66U to replace the slowly improving but essentially tedious VB104W. I imagine that the results of DLM polling will be quite different now but I don't want to have to wait 6 months to find out if I can avoid it!

yes, you need to ask for a "DLM Reset".

Can they actually perform a DLM reset? If so, do you know what the process is for one (as in what happens once you ask for it)? Cheers.

there are two methods for DLM resets i have had.

first being a port refresh ordered on the ISPs side, which in turn resets DLM.

second being ISP requests for chorus to do a reset, chorus do it the next day (they only click a button afterall prettymuch.)


its a very painless task, by the next day it should be reset.

Thanks for the response guys.

However,
I have been having internet disconnections over the past day at these times,

5.47pm 30/03/14
7.24pm 30/03/14
9.12pm 30/03/14
9.59pm 30/03/14

and it reset it each time (modem) powering off/on to get the internet back)
Would it make any difference if I switch the logging function off? stopping it from collecting any logs? The following is my log for the day

I got the same router/modem to replace my VB104W recently
With the latest firmware (1.0.7.0), it has a stability adjustment section for VDSL as well as ADSL2, similar to the 55u I had previously...I set mine to the max (5db) and saw my downstream go from 30ish on a good day to just a hair over 40 most the time now. Haven't seen any issues with reliability or errors as a result of the adjustment either.
The wireless is tons better too, so pretty happy.
