Completed the DSLStats operational checks on FW revision V.5.13(AAXA.7) and established the following:

With DSLStats running on RPi 3B, logging in to 1312-B10D as "root" using associated PW and using adsl or xdslctl CLI command prefix, data collection works normally without any issues.

Edit: Added RPi information.

Anyone interested in building a MTU 1508 firmware out of this?

Anyone interested in building a MTU 1508 firmware out of this?

I thought that the VMG1312-B10D was MTU mini-jumbo frames capable with all the default ZyXEL firmware images?  :-\

Hmm... the AAISP wiki has the baby jumbo frame support crossed out:

https://support.aa.net.uk/Category:ZyXEL_VMG1312_B10D

Quote
VDSL (FTTC) or ADSL as a bridging modem to a third-party PPPoE router (e.g. FireBrick). (with baby jumbo frame support, therefore supporting 1500 byte MTU)

So I guess not?

If anyone has a USB serial adapter, or if someone can make sure the recovery firmware flash page can be accessed just with a long hold of the reset button on boot then I dont mind trying to make a 1508 firmware, but do not have a B10D device to test.

Thank you for pointing out that amendment.

I no longer have a VMG1312-B10D, so I am unable to re-check, but I believe that facility does not exist.  :-\

I currently have a 1312-B10D "on the bench", not line connected and running FW revision V.5.13(AAXA.5) to suit DSLStats compatability and disliking the new GUI in FW revision 8, see earlier posts in this thread.

I can check the point in question if someone explains exactly what is required, I do have a USB/Serial TTL adaptor which I deployed in the initial unlocking of this unit but to be honest I don't really wish to open the case again to access the serial header pins as I have already damaged the case plastic catches, not quite mastered the "credit card" tecnique !

I can check the point in question if someone explains exactly what is required, . . .

When convenient, start with the VMG1312-B10D in a powered-off state. Connect an Ethernet patch cable to the LAN1 port and the other end to a computer. Set the interface of the latter to use a static IPv4 address, say 192.168.1.100 . . . anything in that sub-net will do, other than the 192.168.1.0, 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.255 IPv4 addresses.

Now depress the reset switch of the VMG1312-B10D and keep it held in the operated state. With the other free hand, power-on the device. Wait for as long as you can . . . at least more than 10 seconds. Release the reset switch. Wait one to two minutes and then point your web-browser to the 192.168.1.1 IPv4 address.

Do you see a firmware update page? If yes,  :)  If not,  :(  Then please report your findings.

[Edit: typo.]

@ b*cat:

Configured everything exactly as you advised, have been accessing the router on my LAN with IP add. of 192.168.0.200, results as follows:

After procedure, could not access router on IP add. 192.168.1.1, ie., default.
Router accessed on IP add. 192.168.0.200 (after changing PC to static IPv4 add. of 192.168.0.100)
Nothing in the router config. had changed, admin & supervisor access PW's were the same as previous.

Repeated exercise to ensure repeatability, results were the same.

So, short answer to " did you see a FW update page ? " is no.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for trying. So it seems as if usage of the serial console will be the only method available to recover from a defective firmware image flash.

Well I had a stab this evening at making a B10D baby jumbo frames firmware. The build package appears to be similar to the VMG3925 so I applied the changes jhm used seen here. It built without warnings, but as I have no device to test it requires someone brave who is certain they can recover from a bad flash through serial console. It shouldnt be any more complicated than interrupting the boot with a keypress from a serial adapter and reflashing from the recovery page, but who knows, it could be more difficult than that.

So if anyone is so inclined:

@ johnson:

Many thanks for your time & efforts modifying the 1312-B10D FW with respect to baby jumbo frames via the source code as supplied by meritez.

I don't have the time to test at present due to other commitments but have downloaded the FW bin file for future reference, as you have said, with the "long press reset" not being an option on this model (see earlier posts) could get quite involved and time consuming if the "serial interrupt @ boot" + reflash option didn't work.

Have not really bothered trying the baby jumbo FW modification on my 1312-B10A which I believe is available, I assume the 1312-B10D would have to be put on line post FW upgrade to test ?

No worries tiffy!

Not much point trying something out if you have no need for it. Indeed the recovery from a bad flash might be quite involved, I feel like I should add a B10D and maybe a 3925 to my addiction collection of devices.  ;D

@ johnson,

As I said, you need to be certain you can recover from a bad flash if you want to try it. I have no device so the supplied image is completely untested. This means you need a USB to serial adapted and no problems using it in anger.
