Thomson Router Manual Query

I've just got a Thomson router - from Plusnet  Smiley
Unfortunately, the web interface is really poor - I had to download a CLI manual and
use telnet just to find the sync rate.
Since this manual allows you to do all sorts of clever things and is about 700 pages long,
does anyone know of a simplified extract - non-M$ please!

Don't know of a simplified CLI guide - where did you find the 700 page one (couldn't find it on their site!)?
You don't need to go to the CLI to get the sync rate though - it's on the page in the screenshot below.

Thanks - I didn't see that!
If you want a fat manual, see http://www.thomsonbroadbandpartner.com/getfile.php?id=6064 - on their site!  Smiley

Re: Thomson Router Manual Query

Might be a fat 700+ page manual, but over 70 % are absolutely blank pages, Lucky I didnt print it

Re: Thomson Router Manual Query

could be the pages are taking time to render, pierre.  the monthly pclinuxos magazine can take ages to render and it's usually not much more than 30 pages.  which app are you using to view the file?

Re: Thomson Router Manual Query

Start looking from page 26 on, do you have pictures on those pages, mine are like an index, one line comment then blank page etc.
the first page graphics launched immediate
later on charts list immediate

Re: Thomson Router Manual Query

it sure wastes a lot of space.  page 31 has a bunch of stuff on it, the next page about half filled then more blank space.  they could have compressed it significantly.  i wouldn't bother printing any of it.  if any of it's useful, you could bung it into a pdf editor and scrape up the bits you want to copy to a text editor.

Re: Thomson Router Manual Query

It might have a big manual - but it only has a matchstick for a wireless aerial.
The connection doesn't appear to allow the connection of a better aerial.
The wireless performance is poor (I have a brick wall for it to tunnel through).

I have just replaced my Speedtouch 585v6 with a Netgear DG834Gv4 and there is no noticeable difference in signal strength
