Apologies for jumping straight in without doing the hi this is me bit....bit I was researching regarding the openreach modem....when I moved in to my currently house the previous owner had left his HG612 and his HH3....well a few weeks down the line I got ADSL only to discover later that I could get infinity which is what I am on now.
Further research I found this site about unlocking said modem.....this I have done....


However, I noticed the stats on the modem between attainable and the actual connection....so further searching brought me here and to this particular thread.


So, do I reflash the modem or leave as it is.....btw you'll also notice that I have no idea how to embed an image  :)

IIRC the GUI stats on the HG612 are somewhat buggy.
You'll get a true picture of your connection state if you telnet in and use 'xdslctl info --stats'.

As just pointed out the CRC/FEC stats are incorrect on the GUI, with the true stats only obtainable via telnet.

Well the last time I looked at my 'attainable' it was around 78428 and I was connecting at the same as I am now, obviously something has changed at the cab or the exchange + there maybe a difference with the flash firmware, because TBH I did this a few years ago, so I have no idea if things have changed or moved forward.

Looking again at your screenshot, you're on an old firmware.
The latest firmware can be found here

Hoping this is a suitable place to ask about a trouble I've just encountered with the B030SP08 HG612 firmware, namely suddenly losing LAN2 access.

By "suddenly" I mean that the HG612 (working fine with DSLstats etc for over a year) was in a drawer for a month, while I tried another modem (Zyxel VMG1312-B10D).
For various reasons I decided to switch back to the Huawei.  I disconnected from my ISP, powered down the modem, and commenced to fiddle with the (re-powered) Huawei (over ethernet) with the DSL disconnected (to reset some sync caps before reconnecting), only to find that LAN2 was completely, um, dead, unresponsive (no LAN2 light, no ethernet connection, despite cable swapping, pings, nmaps, etc etc).  Boo, mouldy chiz.   After a lot of faffing around (not yet reflashing the modem firmware), I reconnected (the HG612) anyway (without my favourite pre-connection tweaks), as my family returns soon, and can't face their aggro.  (Via the HG612). Of course, mydslwebstats can't record any more.

Questions:
1. Is it abnormal, or not unexpectable, to lose LAN2 on a HG612 like that, just because it's been in a drawer for a while?  (I'm pretty sure I disabled remote firmware updates...)
2. Is the rational thing to do to reflash the firmware?  I guess so, but could B030SP08  "fade away" somehow in a drawer?? Or the hardware port just conk out??
3. Or should I try the advanced voodoo of "SignedAdam" (in these forums; and on an AAISP page: https://support.aa.net.uk/Router_-_EchoLife_HG612) of going "one wire", and
running stats connection etc over the same wire that carries the DSL connection to the router. ?  Or bin the Huawei, and stick with the Zyxel (that didn't seem to handle my circuit as well as the Huawei, as far as I could make out), and stop obsessing about bloody broadband?

Grateful for any advice/illumination, or reminders of something I might've overlooked.

UPDATE: breaking news, I am an utter moron!  Having tried to reflash (without success) my modem with unlocked firmware, checking (almost) everything carefully, I noticed.. I was not reflashing my HG612 but an elderly ECI modem given me on initial FTTC install.  I really have surpassed myself.  Time for my euthanasia.

Hi, is there a way to tell if vectoring is enabled on the hg612? Its not obvious from the various xdsl commands I have run although I can see that G.INP is enabled.

The command is xdslcmd info --vectoring

Run xdslcmd info --vectoring from the CLI. See Huawei HG612. Hidden Options of the Broadcom xdslcmd Utility.

Thanks for that, I was wondering why I could not see it on the command help.

Code: [Select]
Vectoring state: 5
VCE MAC Address: 0:0:0:0:0:0
Total error samples Ethernet pkts sent: 0
Total error samples Ethernet pkts discarded: 0
Total error samples statuses sent: 0

Guess not enabled yet then, hopefully soon!!
