Hey guys,

 

Just helped out a customer to convert their HG659 modem to be capable on a ADSL connection.

HG659 is used primarily for VDSL and UFB, but can also be used for ADSL and here's some steps on how to do it! Smiley Happy

1. Open a web broswer (for example, Internet Explorer)
2. In the address bar enter http://192.168.1.1
3. In the Username field enter Admin
4. In the Password field enter VF-NZhg659 *Please note, if your firmware has been updated, the password will be @last 8 digits of the modem serial (the serial can be found at the back of the modem)*
5. Click Internet

 

The Internet settings page will appear

 

6. If there are settings under internet_vdsl and Internet_Ethernet, click Delete, otherwise continue to step 7
7. Expand New WAN connection and click Edit
8. Click Edit


9. In the Basic Information section complete the following fields:

 
• Tick the Enable connection check box
• In the Name filed, enter a name for the connection
• Service type: select INTERNET and TR069
• Access type: select ATM uplink from the drop-down menu
• Connection type: select IP routing (PPP) from the drop-down menu
• In the MRU text field enter 1492
• In the MSS text field enter 0
• NAT Type select NAPT

 

 

10. • In the Link Information section complete the following fields:

 

• VP/VCI text fields enter 0 and 100
• Link mode select PPPoA
• Service type select UBR without PCR
• Encapsulation mode select VCMUX

 

11. In the PPP Information section complete the following fields:

 

• PPP authentication mode select Auto
• PPP trigger mode select Always online
• Internet account field enter your Vodafone username
• Internet password field enter your Vodafone password

 

12. Click Save
13. Click Maintain
14. Click Device Management
15. Click Reboot

 

You'll know if you're successful if you can connect via your ADSL connection


If you need to know your Vodafone user name password for PPP details please call the tech support team on

Does doing this screw it up for use with VDSL?

 

Am getting VDSL installed but was thinking of getting the HG659 setup and running on our ADSL while we wait...

Factory resetting the modem will put it back to its original state, depending on what firmware you have on the modem, as Vodafone has now made these modems as their "everything" modem so it now supports ADSL, VDSL, and Fibre.
