I'm trying (most unsuccessfully) to upgrade the firmware on my Speedstream 4200 so that I can get full ADSL2 speed (currently getting approx 7 mbs, no where near 24 mbs).I have just changed from Bigpond's 512 kbs service to Optus' 24 mbs DSL Direct service.
I have an Optus direct connection and am running the telstra firmware with adsl2 and its running great.Can anyone please enlighten me as to how I can upgrade the SS 4200 firmware to a version which will support ADSL2 ????????????????Is the modem connected directly to an ethernet port on the PC you are doing the update with?You should also know it will be deliberately set for adsl1 only since Telstra might own and install adsl2 dslam equipment but they aren't going to turn it on any time soon. I think the BP firmware would work for anyone, its just a matter changing the settings, which are all assessable.However what the BP firmware won't do is allow you to use Vo IP on port 5060.
