Comtrend VR3030
« on: April 24, 2019, 09:36:36 PM »

Has anyone else come across the Comtrend VR3030?

TalkTalk Business utilize it for their Ethernet over FTTC service: https://www.spitfire.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Ethernet-Circuit-Information.pdf

IDNET offer it with their online gaming package: https://gaming.idnet.uk/reviews/comtrend-vr-3030.php

Lastly it has passed the Openreach MCT thing: https://kitz.co.uk/routers/MCT.htm

I won mine on ebay for 99p plus 4.50 shipping, it syncs 0.3mb less than the Zyxel VMG1312-B10A with that new dsl driver that @johnson bundled in that modified firmware.

Still looking for firmware, and comtrend has not responded to my email, but it seems to work really well

How configurable is the unit?  :-\

Being supplied by an ISP/CP, there is a possibility that the firmware has been modified to "lock down" the device.

The interface is similar to a Billion 7700n R2, pretty configurable, I'm starting to think the Broadcom SDK gives this basic ui interface.

I did hit a stale session bug last week, so I have ripped it out and put my trusty zyxel b10a back in

I see that there is an eBay seller with a few available, described as "new". I checked with the seller and they confirmed that the units have a sticker on the underside (attached, below) which references TalkTalk Business' "Ethernet over Fibre To The Cabinet" (EoFTTC) service and the TalkTalk Business telephone number.

That's a good find, the TIS stands for Tiscali, and that EoFTTC number is an actual TTB account number.

Did the seller advise on the Firmware version?

So it looks like the VR3030 and the VR3031u are based on the same sourcecode.

The VR3032u has sourcecode available here: https://github.com/PepeTrend/pepetrend

currently reading through it to see if the vr3030 or vr3031u are mentioned
