~ Huawei SmartAX MT882

Supplied from Oct 06
This is actually a combined adsl modem router with one USB and one Ethernet connection.
The web interface is limited and TT have disabled a lot of the features. :/
Unfortunately TT seem to have made a huge boob in the first shipment of the software shipped with this particular router in that it seems to have problems remembering the username.

Huawei SmartAX MT882

User manual for the MT882 can be downloaded from here.

From what Ive seen I suspect that this is based on the Globespan Viking (now Conexant) chipset and therefore will be very similar to the Voyager 205/Solwise SAR100 inside.
Update Nov 2006.
Many thanks to Spiker, with his co-operation, its been proved that many of the telnet commands for the SAR110 can also be used with this router.
From the telnet interface this router reports Vendor ID : 00B5GSPN which is the same as the SAR110. :)
