Is it worth anything?

Just found an old plusnet ADSL router in a cupboard.

Thomson TG585 V7 complete with cables, PSU, phone modem adapter

 

Is it of use to anybody?

perhaps I would be better filing it under B1N

One went for £18 ex postage on eBay three days ago, but £3 to £5 seems more usual of late.

When somebody says it’s not about the money, it’s about the money.

Re: Is it worth anything?

I had two which I chucked on a skip.

One was an ex-BEThere router which was locked. There was a post on how to unlock it, but that involved taking the whole thing apart, soldering wires to parts of the board and reflashing it with some other firmware. So all in all too much hassle.

One was a generic one where I couldn't get into the settings despite doing all the resets, etc. That tested my patience (of which I have hardly any). So that went.

You might get a couple of quid for it, but it depends if you want the hassle really. Someone may want one if you donate it?

@richald  do you have the "login" details, on a little plastic card  ?  it would be needed by any new owner.

Re: Is it worth anything?

@shutter Yep, if you look at my original post, there is a scan of the front of the

quick set up guide with the serial number, SSID, WEP, and WPA numbers.

 

Don't know whether the Thomson Gateway (referred to in the instructions)

is still working, (ISTR that this was software actually on the router).
