I expected some lights to stay on for the update firmware but cannot seem to get into the modem via the 192.168.1.1 web page.

      Its frustrating because when its doing a standard reset you see the power light flash off once then the internal lights sort of flicker until they go steady. This is after a 10 second hold. I tried a firmware boot by holding the reset button in for exactly five seconds after I have put the power on, this doesn't seem to do anything.

      I have the wireless connection disable on the laptop and can see the separate ethernet connection so I change that to IP= 192.168.1.100. It appears something is connected via the plan in windows in network connections but double clicking to resolve brings up an error message.

      After all this ---- nothing! Should I be doing anything else? Do any lights actually stay permanent on when its in firmware upgrade mode?
      Just had another thought.
      Use another lan cable from lan2 port of the HG612, to any spare port of your sky router, then go to 192.168.1.1 should see the HG612 setup page.

      Cheers for the reply Will: so should the Lan 2 light be lit all the time when its in Firmware mode? If so mine doesn't come on so obviously I am doing something wrong but what? Any thoughts? I am sure the guy would have told me if he had hacked it as I want to do the same.

      EDIT sorry Will dont understand that could you clarfiy in simple terms for me please? Do you want me to connect the HG612 into a spare lan port on the Sky router and then try going to 192.168.1.1 through my hard wired PC, as that is separate to the laptop. Do you then want me to do the resetting etc? whilst my proper modem is still connected?

      So to confirm I would Have my ECI modem to Sky modem then out of back of ethernet port to the HG612 I bought and then connect my Cat 5 connection from my hard wired PC into the back of the Huawei HG612 and try to connect via 192.168.1.1

      Thinking about it, i jumped the gun a little with the post below, as this only works after the unlocked firmware has been put on. sorry.

      Just had another thought.
      Use another lan cable from lan2 port of the HG612, to any spare port of your sky router, then go to 192.168.1.1 should see the HG612 setup page.

      But yes once hacked & connected up, lan2 port does light up . (Lan port 1 will still need to be used at the same time to transfer internet data) ie lan port 2 is only good for assess to the setup pages without a setting change. some interesting posts at the bottom of this page on this.

      I cant think why it's not working for you. Double check the sequence and make sure the pc your using to do it is set to 192.168.1.100 and that you are cabled into Lan2 of the HG612.

      No that's where i jumped the gun.
      this is the important bit. You have to do this correct to see the setup pages to flash the unlocked firmware. (I used the same pdf instructions as you)

      1. Power off the modem.
      2. Connect your PC directly to the LAN2 socket (as in Fig. 1)
      3. Configure the ethernet NIC of your PC with IP address 192.168.1.100.
      4. Press the RESET button on the modem and keep it pressed.
      5. Do not release the button yet.
      6. Power on the modem.
      7. Keep the RESET button pressed for a further five seconds.
      8. Use your browser to visit the modem's web address http://192.168.1.1/

      when you visit http://192.168.1.1/ is when you see the setup page to flash the unlocked firmware.
      Once flashed, you can have cables from both ports of the HG612 to 2 ports on your Sky router and then you can visit the setup pages anytime via http://192.168.1.1/
      I presume you have the firmware ready, but for the record, i got mine from here.
      Huawei HG-612
      Best Regards, Will
      ps, yes of course i will help all i can

      to start off with do you have msn or another messaging program that you can use on a internet connected mobile device (3G etc) so we can communicate easier?
