  • Alcatel SpeedTouch Home

    I am trying to convert my Alcatel SpeedTouch Home to PRO.
    When I key in telnet
    I enter user name EXPERT. The system doesn’t ask for password
    When I enter EXPERT at the “=>” I get “unknown command”
    I tried logging in as user then at the “=>” I enter EXPERT I get the same message back “Unknown command”

      a problem to convert alcatel 510 "home" to "p

      iv'e got an XP os running on a pentium 4 machine.

      1)when i typed "software" and then "version" i got this:

      file: LLT6AA4.0200

      does it mean that the version is "200" ?

      2)I tried both the "EXPERT" and the "td prompt" commands but got the "unknown command" response.

      the only word that "td" could be followed by was "call".
      when i tried "td call" i got this:

      =>td call

        Home -> Pro

        Be sure you enter EXPERT all in capital letters. I tried lower-case and it doesn't work. Try capital letters and advise if it still doesn't work.

          I have never seen a firmware version that starts with "LL" (LLT6AA4.0200). Is it a ISDN or POTS version? Try a firmware change and then try the expert / td prompt trick again.
          NB: Changing firmware is for your own risk of course.

              Expert password


              I have one of those too.

              SpeedTouch 510
              Software version File LLT6AA4.0090

              I have tried to login in EXPERT mode but have the same problem then you.
              It won't accept either "EXPERT" or TD prompt. I have tried all uper and lower case combination, no luck

              Anybody out there who knows how to get into this one???

                I had this exact problem myself.

                If you have LLT6AA4.2xx as your software version you are using a Speed Touch 510, NOT the Speed Touch Home, and EXPERT and td prompt will NOT work.

                However, that may be ok. I was trying to upgrade to Pro when I got this problem. But there is no need to upgrade to Pro because the 510 version is actually an upgrade of Pro, not the other way around. In my case I wanted to use my Speed Touch as a router instead of a modem. This option, and other options, are not available in the Home version. Since I thought that there was no difference between 510 and Home I wanted to upgrade to Pro, which can be used as a router. But the 510 version is better than Pro and already comes configured to be used as a router.

                So, before you fret that you can't get into EXPERT mode, make sure that you really need to do this!
