That did seem to be the case when using hyper terminal, but putty works fine, I can open the com port and then turn on the modem.

I have found another adapter, I'll give that a go tomorrow.

One's that Windows update installed for both PC's, and both adapters.

Edit: Just downloaded the drives from the manufactures website for the second adapter and still no good.

Even though I've soldered the pins into two of these modems I've had no luck unlocking it,  Phil has though, so not sure what the difference is. It'd be interesting to hear how you get on.

But if im reading it right hes only managed telnet access and that's not available when plugged in so this is no good for me really I need full web user interface access

Is this going to be possible? As if not I might just buy a /I and unlock that...

For the time being, if it's purely for observing/logging connection stats, the Huawei HG612 is the modem to obtain as it is very easily unlocked (software only), stats are easily obtained in a familiar format & scripts are available for unattended logging 24/7 and graphing at will.

If you are looking for an ECI to unlock for research/interest, then I wish you the best of luck as it does appear to be a trickier modem to unlock & obtain reliable stats from.

One does have to question why BT really decided to lock these modems from users actually being able to see how their connections actually perform.

We wouldn't buy cars without speedometers, oil & temperature guages, would we?
Maybe car manufacturers have slightly less inferior (not fit for purpose) equipment to hide from unsuspecting customers though.

Totally agree with you

Reason I want an ECI though is people have reported problems using Huawei with ECI in the exchange/green box at the end of the road

Last thing I want is to buy a Huawei and have problems, atleast with an ECI I shouldn't have issues, also software for ECI is improving and I know there is an application in development which can pull all stats needed

And of course the other question is does it work with the newer ECI modems?

Probably not. But on another note I feel the stats given by the previous ECI modem either via CLI or web are misleading. Occasionally getting some number ranging in millions is definitely wrong (seems to occur a lot on FEC I've found, suddenly will show this number at random times).
