Is SP08 from Openreach directly?

Any chance of putting a newer driver in a custom firmware, does such a thing exist

You can change the xdsl driver just the same as was done on the Zyxels to fix Vectoring issues.

You need to use a version designed specifically for the chipset in the HG612.

It's a very old device and old chipset and very unlikely you will find a newer driver that has any benefit.

Thought so. Iíll stick with a newer modem.

Following what I've read in this thread and others on this forum I got hold of a HG612 to take over as a modem in bridge mode paired with a Google WiFi router, which others seem to have done successfully. I'd seen some strange IP reservation behaviour and wanted to eliminate the second router.

I've flashed it with the unlocked firmware and left settings as the defaults, which looked like that would give me a bridge with no routing.

It works, but my download speeds have gone from c. 52 Mbps to c. 26 Mbps, which is obviously disappointing.

Have I missed something, or is this to be expected with the older hardware? Seems a lot when in theory the modem is capable of 80 Mbps.

ISP is EE, and I've been using their standard issue Smart Hub to date.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the kitz forum.  :)

I doubt it. And no, that scale of drop is not expected. Clearly something else is occurring.

It does seem strange. I can swap the two pieces of kit back and forth and consistently get ~52Mbps over the Smart Hub and ~26Mbps over the HG612.

If this is unexpected with the default settings then I don't really know where to start looking.

(It's probably obvious but forgot to mention this is over a fibre line.)

Sounds like either a knackered HG612 or potentially a Vectoring specific issue.
The HG612 usually does well with Vectoring though.

Could you post the output of the --stats command from the HG612 (if you know how)?

I'm sorry, that's past my skillset!

Once you have updated the firmware image there is nothing else that really needs to be done. It is very much a "plug and play" device by default. Your router's EWAN port should be connected to the LAN1 port of the HG612 with a standard Ethernet patch cable.

For a TalkTalk VDSL2 (FTTC) (ITU-T G.993.2) service, your router should be configured to use IPoE (or, possibly, DHCP) mode with an MTU of 1500.

Hi All,

Apologies for just jumping on the bandwagon - am new to this and this is my first post. Can someone please help.
After reading the forum and posts on HG612, I too bought one but cant seem to get it flashed and the link for the firmware seems to be inaccessible. Can someone please help me with the latest firmware to use so that I can replace my Sky Q Hub with HG612 as I want to build pfSense machine to learn and improve my knowlege.

Thank you in advance!

....the file I had found and used to try and flash the firmware  - seems to make the HG612 go dead with no response to even simple ping on 192.168.0.1 after the attempt to flash.

I believe the default IP is 192.168.1.1 - https://kitz.co.uk/routers/hg612hacking.htm
