O2 modem with Plusnet?

I have an O2 Broadband modem that I would love to use for my neighbour's PN account. But it appears that the box is locked and I cannot change the Username and Password to connect to PN.
Does anyone know how to unlock this box please?
It's a Thompson ...
Kind Regards
Hugh

Re: O2 modem with Plusnet?

It's almost impossible now:
1) to unlock the router requires using a soldering iron.
2) the web site ( http://forums.modem-help.co.uk ) with the instructions and firmware files required to unlock it has closed down.  Cry
3) the price of these thing on ebay make it not worth the effort.
Sorry I'm unable to help.

You could use it to extend your wireless.
