I don't know if this is relevant or useful, but I believe the ethernet driver on this and the BTHH5 are the same (lantiq).
I proposed a change to allow mini-jumbo frames on the ethernet, see:
https://forum.lede-project.org/t/lantiq-vrx200-pppoe-1500-bytes/4087/2
but was unable to test as the ECI was limited to 1500 also.

Maybe someone who builds LEDE for ECI may like to try?
Should enable you to use full 1500 mtu on the pppoe connection with any UK ISP using BT Openreach (assuming the router you are using with the ECI also supports frames of 1508 on the ethernet link).

Has anyone managed to get this going with ADSL instead of VDSL?

I am currently still on the official firmware, I switched to ADSL using
/usr/sbin/vg3503j_bt_xml_modify.sh WAN_CFG_GROUP_T_00 media_type ADSL

The line syncs, but I still get no traffic on the nas interface...any idea?

Should it work straight away if I flash a non-modified OpenWrt?

How can I backup the current squashfs, considering the modem has no internect connection and does not seem to ship with ssh?

I suspect you have not changed the device's configuration from packet transfer mode (PTM) to asynchronous transfer mode (ATM). That would result in exactly the symptoms you have described.

Unfortunately I do not have any experience of using the modem/router and so will not be able to help you.

thanks for getting back to me :)

The device seems to be on ATM. The line syncs, and I get download/upload rates.

"DSL_STATUS Notification
Negotiated DSL Mode = ADSL
Negotiated TC Mode = ATM
>> DSL data rate: US 888 kbps, DS 14494 kbps.
>> DSL link up, time 76, handshake elapsed time 76"

But then udhcpc is started, and it doesn't get any reply.

I'm not sure how to proceed from there, the Asus router fails to connect over PPPoE reporting "Timeout waiting for PADO packets"

Nothing...I backed up, flashed with the 15.05.1 from OpenWRT's website.

I can't even get this one to sync the line.
I edited /etc/config/network to use annex a (tried b and j too) and atm

But the DSL led doesn't come on at all, and dsl_control reports the line as "Idle"

Any clue?

Hi folks,

I'm currently using a BT HH5A running LEDE on my VDSL link.  I am going to update a router with a much fast CPU so I can run OpenVPN on it without crippling throughput.

As I'll be running LEDE/OpenWRT on the new router, I'll likely need to dust off the BT ECI V2 modem the BT Openreach enginieer left when they put me onto VDSL (I had an HH 5A then so just used it).  Or would I be better off with the Huawei HG612?

Apart from the "I have control" issue that all we techies love, what are the benefits of flashing this modem with OpenWRT?

Oh yes, while I'm here, How do I found out what type of DSLAM is in my cabinet?

** Update ** Thanks to post from Dray below, I've found out I'm on a Hauwei cabinet

Thanks
Dave
