Technicolor TG589vac ‘End of Life’ Notice

Technicolor TG589vac ‘End of Life’ Notice

We have received notice from Technicolor that the TG589vac is now end of life. We have a limited number of units available and when we run out we will be unable to replenish our stock.

The TG589vac has been directly replaced by the brand new Technicolor TG589vac v2. This new model is almost identical in feature set but offers a new slimmer design, allowing the package to fit through a standard letter box. The TG589vac v2 features one USB2.0 port whereas its predecessor offered two.

Technicolor TG589VN V3 – End of Life Notice

We have received notice from Technicolor that the TG589VN V3 is now end of life. We have a limited number of units available, when we run out we will be unable to get more stock.

We recommend the TG588v v2 or the TG589vac as alternative products. Both routers are BT Wholesale approved, support ADSL2+, VDSL and are ideal for Fibre to the Cabinet scenarios. The TG589vac also features IEEE 802.11ac wireless standard for the 5 GHz band, enabling even higher throughput and better Wi-Fi coverage.

Easy TG582 router firmware upgrade

You can connect to the TG582 router’s command line interface using telnet which gives you a great level of control over this router.  You need to be connected to the LAN side of the router, you cannot do this over the Internet (unless you are VPN’d to a PC on the local network the router is on).  The default login username is “Administrator” (yes. uppercase ‘A’!) and the password is the web interface password (blank by default).

You will need to have the firmware file hosted on a web server somewhere, lets say the URL for this is http://myserver.com/tg582firmware.bin.  The server this is hosted on doesn’t need to be on the local network with the router as long as the router has a working Internet connection.

Iissue this command in your router’s telnet interface:

software download url=http://myserver.com/tg582firmware.bin filetype=firmware

It may ask you for some other options, just leave them blank (by pressing the return key).

Then your router will download, reboot & upgrade itself.

Note: on the new TG588 & TG589 routers there is no need for this as you can simply upgrade firmware in the web interface.  Some of these do have a command line interface but it is totally different to the TG582 and doesn’t seem to be very useful (yet).

BT Wholesale Approved Routers

As of April 2016 BT Openreach have changed their FTTC installation process. This has meant they no longer supply or install their modem for FTTC connections. Service providers now need to supply VDSL2 modems that connect to the BT phone socket.

Due to popular demand we have added two Technicolor routers to our portfolio that have BT Wholesale approval.

These are the TG588v v2 and the TG589vac. Both routers support ADSL2+, VDSL and are ideal for Fibre to the Cabinet scenarios. The TG589vac also features IEEE 802.11ac wireless standard for the 5 GHz band, enabling even higher throughput and better Wi-Fi coverage.

The TG589vac also features a dedicated Gigabit Ethernet WAN port and 4 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Ports where as the TG588v v2 features 4 Fast Ethernet LAN Ports.

We offer a router set-up service for our resellers. For a small charge we can pre-provision either generic or customer specific settings to your routers prior to despatch. This enables fast and smooth installation at your customer’s site.

Technicolor TG582 router refresh

The Technicolor TG582 ADSL router that we have sold for a few years has just undergone a slight refresh.

https://www.provu.co.uk/technicolor-tg582.html

The old part code TG582NPRO is now out of stock.

The new part code is TG582N_SB.

This new model is identical in every way except it doesn’t have a USB port on the side any more.

The USB port could be used for:

    • 3G modem for backup
    • USB printer server
    • simple NAS with a USB hard drive

So be aware, you wont be able to do these things with the new version but everything else remains the same.

Our pre-configuration service for these routers remains unchanged as well.

We are also in the process of testing the TG589VN router which is a more powerful Technicolor router we think will be good for those using Fibre-to-the-cabinet services where the throughput of the TG582 isn’t up to the job. We should be launching this product soon. Worth noting that it does have a USB port on it.

Thomson Routers

ProVu are now stocking the Thomson TG585 V8 routers.

This is primarily for ITSP and installer customers so they can buy the phones and router from one supplier.

We can also set the ADSL username and password in the router before shipping.

Disable SIP ALGs on Thomson routers

This has cropped up a few times of late.

You need to telnet into the router:

Administrator is the default user on the box.

You should get something similar to below after doing this.
