Unfortunately I dont know anything that will rescue it. This is precisely why someone should edit the message on the first page to warn against this. (Unlokia? Moderators?), the mods have changed the title, but I dont think that's enough personally.

FYI lordy7, my bricked 2700GHV does indeed have two SSIDs AND the smaller
of the two bar codes ends with 007.

Hi guys,

Recently moved offices at work and acquired an 18mth old 2700 (no fusion ssid).

Using (well, trying to!) on eclipse - now accepts a username other than @hgxx.btclick crap but it will not overwrite the default password in the PPPoE/A config page! It's flashed fine, disconnected from any dsl link so it can't get provisioning info, so I'm at a loss...

Tried different usernames but still the connection password stays the same.

I flashed my 2700HGV and, unfortunately I got a big, red, light on the Power indicator and the user guide says 'contact your technical support'.
However, I aquired my router through a friend, so I can't exchange.

Is there still no resolution for fried routers?
Cheers
Stumpy

I'm sick of the BT2700HGV!. Just down(UP, in my opinion)graded to the 2WIRE 1800HG, courtesy of BT's useless tech "support" (?!) line. As I am selling this item to a friend, I decided to create my very own "QUICKSTART GUIDE" for the BT2700HGV, for him, which I printed... but then I thought you guys may as well have it also!.

Link below V

Basic, SIMPLE configuration for the first time user.

Oh come off it. First it was the 2091, then the 2700, then the 1800. What next, a Vic 20?

Come on chaps, lets not get into a flame war over a piece of hardware.

Sorry. I spent the afternoon watching the most boring football game in history and feel cheated. Needed to let off steam. :-)

Each man to his own interests, but the unhealthy obsession with this albeit pointless "sport", is a partial explanation as to why our beloved England is such a dire mess, in this day and age. Children see footballers, along with their disgustingly inflated salaries, as role models, along with film stars and the kind of trash that form the bulk of pulp publications such as "OK" magazine and "FHM" etc etc. If these morons are "role models" which they evidently are (as much as people will defend and deny such) then there is the problem!.

In days gone by, professors and intellectual members of society, were seen as the role model, and I strongly feel that this is where English society has fallen, by allowing the 'chav'-like empty-headed guys, to become more of a substantial influence, than those people in society with a *TRUE* understanding of core values and morality, such as the aforementioned intellectuals.

Money talks, b*llsh*t walks, as they say... it was surely never meant to be taken as literally as it is today?!. Speaks volumes about the intelligence of joe-average. I am not directing this at anyone on the forum btw, but the whole subject of football just got me thinking.

Hope you enjoyed my toned-down rant - sorry if I offended or veered off-topic, but you cannot compartmentalise emotion I am afraid, just keep it controlled if possible!.

Would someone mind explaining to me the whole 'point' of football?. Insult me all you will for my ignorance (?!) but I cannot seem to find one.

LOL The question was "Don't you have a choice as to wether to upgrade?"


Would someone mind explaining to me the whole 'point' of football?. Insult me all you will for my ignorance (?!) but I cannot seem to find one.


One can also apply this theory to the internet and forums in particular

"What's the point of poncing about on the internet in your spare time posting on forums or uploading hacked firmware"

The same as football, it's a pastime and as a pastime it's largely pointless apart from to the folk actually taking part, Its enjoyed by millions of participants worldwide and I happen to be one that enjoys both.

Do we need a "point" or an outcome to do something we enjoy?

As for the money involved, If you were in the position of being able to earn millions for doing something you enjoyed I'm sure you would grab it with both hands and so would I tbh and I'm sure most other normal folk would.

I could add to this but I don't really see the point lol

What I don't get with you unlokia is why when you are on BT you want to play around with hacked firmware anyway?

It can't be to boost your signal. You said before that your wireless adapter is approx 1 metre away from your wireless modem, so what is the point?

Regarding what is wrong with England, I personally don't blame the chavs. We've always had chavs. A couple of generations ago the chavs made up a large proportion of our armed services in the World Wars.

The problem is the middle classes have stopped breeding. Too many people value a career and wealth above a family. That's just dumb on so many levels.

Thus endeth the sermon...

To do something purely for financial gain, without taking the slightest bit of interest, is a waste of time to me, and I feel a waste of my life.

If I die a happy man, it will be because I have helped others out, and become wiser in the process, and not because I have showered myself with banknotes. How vulgar!.

You hack and you learn? Evidence would suggest that you don't learn. You broke your 2091 by hacking it. You broke your 2700 by hacking it. Presumably you are going to break your 1800 by hacking it too!

The lesson here is, don't hack it unless you know what you are doing!

The other lesson should be to accept where you have gone wrong, and not pass the blame on to BT.

When you killed your 2091s, you blamed the router itself, and BT.
When you killed your 2700, you blamed the router itself, and BT.

There is nothing wrong with either of these routers!

Soon, no doubt, you will be blaming the 1800, and BT. Frankly, I am amazed that BT are, as you claim, sourcing you with an 1800HG. I am even more amazed, because BT stopped selling them a couple of years ago, but I will let that one go.

Now, you may accuse me of trolling, thats fine. But I am just making a point. Firmware upgrades should NOT be undertaken lightly. They should only be done as a last resort. The old adage "If it aint broke, don't fix it" is especially true with regards to firmware.

There is plenty of hacking to be done on any router without resorting to firmware upgrades.

To anybody reading this or the other firmware threads thinking of updating their firmware, don't do it unless you have to, and research the process before undertaking it. If it goes wrong you can have a fried router on your hands. This site itself has plenty of info on unlocking the 210, 2091 and 2500V, and they work. However, the 2700 upgrade is giving no end of grief, and you would be better off using DNS poisoning instead.

I've flashed over 20, no complaints. If there were 'no end of grief' I'm sure I would have heard by now I've only had two die, and these were the new ones.
Now people know which ones not to flash, it should no longer be a problem.

DNS poisoning is indeed safer (but a little bit more involved for a newbie to set up after a reset compared to a flashed unit - assuming newbie didn't do the original flash) , but I think you're overstating your case in order to have a pop at Unlokia, not sure why..
