I've got a Huawei cabinet so let me know if you want anything testing in regards to G.INP (it is currently disabled but I expect will be turned back on soon).

I was pondering if I should change DSL_FALSE to DSL_TRUE on the upstream.

ejs is probably the best man to ask.  I think he may have been dabbling in that area.  It may also depend on if the hardware is capable - like it was with the TD-W9980's.

Would you be able to test this test image if you have G.INP re-enabled?
On this image G.INP is allowed on the upstream but I have no idea if it works properly. I think the hardware is capable of it though. I'm not sure which version of ECI /r you have so I've just built images for the two, and if it works it can replace the current images linked at the start of the topic.

Others with Huawei cabs feel free to test too :)

In a previous post I said I noticed bitswap was off but now I notice it turns itself on but only on upstream, is this normal behaviour? does the cab turn it off when it's not needed? I'm going to leave this setup for about a week and monitor any changes.
When using the HG612 bitswap was always on and I find it strange. Perhaps the cab is talking to something in the lantiq code.

Bitswapping is on now, on both downstream and upstream.

It seems to turn on at night, and sometimes during the day it'll turn it on for upstream. Very strange, must be the cabinet doing that.

Hi,

I've just awaiting some solder so I can solder my header pins to the ECI.

I haven't even broken into it yet which I believe requires drilling so I'll probably do that at some point tomorrow.

No worries, fingers crossed it's stable on your Huawei cab.  :fingers:

I am thinking of giving this a try.  Will any revision of the modem do or do I need to be careful? Have issues with pressing enter during boot to get prompt working and being able to telnet in at same time as being connected?  Thanks

Switch it off, keep the UART connected and when you plug it back in keep pressing CTRL + C
you'll then get into the uboot prompt.

There's two revisions, v1 and v2. If you read the first post in this thread you'll be able to identify which version you have. :)

By the way, I don't think the COM port will necessarily be COM3 :)

Sometimes it's COM5, but usually it's always COM3  :)
If in doubt, see Device Manager > Ports

My UART is always COM19 :)

Due to the new driver updates, we have a total of 600KB free space left on the flash to work with.   :silly:
Before, we had over 1MB.. not much room left if we want graphs, but I'll see what I can do.  :D
It would be nice if the dslstats program for the HG612 had customizable commands to retrieve the stats and also SSH support. Perhaps there's another program?

Yes I would also like some embedded stats monitoring :D

In regards to bitswapping, I notice it all the time on the various Broadcom modems/routers I use so it will be interesting to see how the ECI performs with your firmware :)

At first I was worried bitswapping was broken  :doh: in the new drivers since it was off for a while, and then it gradually turned itself on beginning with upstream in the afternoon and then on DS at around 10pm. Hopefully it works alright on Huawei cabs, it should.
It seems likely lantiq DSLAMs can toggle line features if the CPE supports it, but I've never heard of that before.  :D
