    Hi everyone,

    My old faithful Alcatel Speedtouch is dead/dying and I've been given the
    abovementioned modem.

    I downloaded a whole bunch of synch.bin files (55 of them) and haven't got a
    clue which one to use. Has anyone successfully got this modem working with
    IPCop in New Zealand? If so, which synch.bin file did you use? Or am I
    doomed to have to try all 55 of them? I'm just about on my knees hoping
    somebody on here has successfully got it working...........

    What is the problem with the Speedtouch?

    It's physically buggered - or getting that way fast. At the moment it's held
    together with duct tape. Unfortunately it had a nasty encounter with a heavy
    box :(

    It will probably survive for ages but I'd rather have a backup handy in case
    it dies.

    Speaking of the other D-Link one I have just tried all 55 synch.bin files
    with no success.

    Dany, Try:

    Looks like it uses a beta version of a different sync.bin than the
    other ECI based DSL modems.

    Thanks for that Steve - unfortunately I've tried that one too. Uploading the
    new file, unplugging/replugging the modem didn't bring the ADSL light on at
    all. I'm assuming that's all I have to do, of course....

    You need to completely restart IPcop. The upload of the sync.bin file to
    the DSL modem takes place during the boot process.

    What I used to do......
    1 Upload new Sync.bin in IPCop
    2 Save config
    3 shutdown IPCop box (and turn off power)
    4 Cycle ADSL modem power
    5 Restart IPCop
    With my Dynalink 070 modem, During the boot process the DSL light would
    flash and then go solid when it had synced with the DSLAM. The boot
    process will wait for this to happen, unless it takes too long (cause I
    was using the wrong file), and times out. It would go on to boot but
    would never sync.

    I have not used the DLink unit you have, but the main thing to look for
    is the modem syncing during the boot process. If the DSL light goes solid
    you are probably OK!
