Hi All,


I am attempting to get HG612 Modem Stats to report the software version of these modems.

I can get it from the Billion via telnet command "deviceinfo".

It produces this detail:-

> deviceinfo

Model Name      : BiPAC 8800NL
Software Version: 2.32d.dh14
MAC address     : xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx


The MAC address can be easily hidden if required.


However, it appears that the "deviceinfo" command isn't available for the ZyXel.

This is the returned message when attempting to use the "deviceinfo" command:-

> deviceinfo
telnetd:error:528.844:processInput:544:unrecognized command deviceinfo



Do any of you know of a telnet command that would return the modem's software version for ZyXel modems?

I use adsl info --version. It doesn't provide the detail of the deviceinfo command, but it does tell you the firmware version.

Thanks Eric.

I already use that command in my program(s).

It returns this from a ZyXel modem:-

adsl --version
adsl version 1.0
ADSL PHY: AnnexA version - A2pv6F039i.d24e


& this from a Billion:-

adsl --version
adsl version 1.2
ADSL PHY: AnnexA version - A2pv6F039g1.d24m


Hmmm.

I wonder if either firmware version could be flashed to the other make's modem.

If so, I also wonder if it would make much difference, if any.


I don't have either of those modems so the information has come from other kitz forum members.

I have no idea whether those are the most recent firmware versions for either of the modems.

On my VMG8924-B10A the swversion works as well,

Code: [Select]
> swversion
1.00(AAKL.7)

Cant try my 8324 as it is not powered up right now.

Thanks for that, Stuart & lloyd.

I'll ask Ronski to test it on his 8324 (unless anyone else beats him to it & posts the results here).

Thanks AArdvark.

So the output should now look something like one of the attached examples then.
