Anywhere to download and flash to a v5 firmware?

Do it at your own risk.

Awesome post! A borrowed Linksys WRT120N router was trashy for wireless.

Now i have re-used the 2wire from my terminated Singtel acct as a normal routing device. IT has been great when i was on Singnet.

I'm trying to use my 2wire 2701hgv-e (firmwire v5.xx) as a router to work with my newly setup SBV5121 cable modem. Used the instructions outlined my MarineX but hit error :-
ERROR
The hardware address entry can only use hexadecimal digits (0-9, A-F, a-f) and it must also be a unicast address.


My config screen also has an additional section at the top which is not seen on the screen dumps by MarineX.

DSL and ATM Settings
DSL Line Selection: Line 1 (inner pair)
ATM Circuit Identifier: VPI: VCI:

ATM Encapsulation: Bridged LLC Bridged VC-Mux Routed LLC Routed VC-Mux
ATM PVC Search: Enabled Disabled

What settings should I enter?

Appreciate your help.

No need what. Reset the router first, under config in broadband link non mdc page, select direct ip. Done.

Sorry to dig out this old thread...

Any expert please advise how to make my 2701HGV-E (FW ver 6.xx) to act simply as an AP for my star hub sbv5121 (for multiple PCs/HPs).

thx in advance.

Flash to Qwest Firmware and configure it as a Broadband Router.

My problem now is that my M1 BB is ok but my ST fix line is not working.
M1 Motorola Modem -> ST 2wire Router

Any idea how to make both work?

1. The firmware upgrade link is http://192.168.1.254/upgrade.asp
2. In Singtel Firmware, the Ethernet WAN port is pre-configured for Singtel Fibre optical BB use and has Vlan tag on, so you cannot use it on normal Starhub connection.
