new modem had to be changed

1. I called the A1 hotline.
2. They asked me to change the new modem in a Telekom shop.
3. With the new modem the internet access worked immediately and also the setup of the WLAN connection worked as described in the provider's docu.


internet access

0. I really had to do this from the very beginning, so I asked my nephews how to start. 1. I had to find a provider and decided for A1 (at that time Telekom Austria). 2. It was easy from the home page to decide for the suitable service product 3. I made the order via the phone hotline given in the home page (late in the evening). The call center agent checked immediately, that my phone connection meets the necessary preconditions. 4. I received a package via post service containing the necessary hardware equipment including the modem with WLAN function. 5. My new notebook was already equpped with LAN socket and WLAN features so it was no problem to set up the cable connections needed for the installation according to the printed documentation as well as the documentation on the installation CD. 6. The connection between computer and modem did work. The control light on the modem indicated a correct connection with the computer but faulty connection with the telecom server. 7. All the problem solving hints in the documentation did not apply.


Secure the Thomson TG585

<p>The Thomson TG585 v7 provided by the Telekom Austria (with a branded firmware) is delivered with system access from every user registered with the modem by wlan or lan. The problem is that the modem knows a default-user (with default-privileges) who can get system access without any password. This user can add other users with passwords, but his own password is still blank so everone in the network is able to have access to the system of the modem. You can also not delete this default-user or make another user with real admin privileges.</p><p>Additionally some plugins like "Identification of invaders" are turned off and cannot be turned on by clicking a button or cannot be accessed.</p>
