    ISP Remotely Controlling Router Settings

    I guess this makes sense. It just messes with the few tech savvy people like us who likes to make our SSID's private and set security settings. In my case I thought I am getting a nice 5G router to try out.

    I think I would rather just stick with my Tenda Router for now. Will request they collect their router, then there is no confusion.

    ISP Remotely Controlling Router Settings

    I have gone through their terms to find something regarding this, as stated in one of the previous comments. If its there and I did not read it then so be it. But I cant find it anywhere on their sites Ts & Cs. If they informed their customers upfront and tell them the router will be remote...

    ISP Remotely Controlling Router Settings

    Its not the same as having complete control over the settings and privacy, blocking you out totally. What's the point if I cant set my router up with my own Wi-Fi password at least, or customize settings to manage everything that runs on it. The purpose of this post was to see if people have...

    ISP Remotely Controlling Router Settings

    I will go google how to hard reset the Zyxel they sent me. I tried the usual pressing the reset button for 10s, this did reset it. But after reconnecting its as if it re-configures itself again. Perhaps I should look at what firmware they have on there and reload that...

    ISP Remotely Controlling Router Settings

    I Recently moved and installed fibre at my new home. I took advantage of a ongoing black Friday deal that included free Vuma installation (for some reason not many ISPs do VUMA installations for free) My router was supplied after installation was confirmed, fortunately I have my old router and...

    LTE UNcapped Ads - On Gumtree/Facebook

    Must Admit, me too. But I think they really just re-selling an Internet Solutions wholesale deal or something. using their infrastructure. When I do a speed test with my app it tells me my ISP is Internet Solutions.
