2.4.2. Upload

Use this page to download the files necessary for supporting various modems to your desktop machine, and then upload them to your IPCop.

2.4.2.1. Upload Speedtouch USB Firmware

Use this section to upload the firmware file to IPCop - Speedtouch USB ADSL will not function before this has been done.

Figure 2.19. Typical upload firmware section

Typical upload firmware section

You need one file for Speedtouch Revision 4 modems, and a different one for earlier models. Use the file KQD6_3.012 for Revisions 1 and 2, and ZZZL_3.012 for Revision 4 modems.

If you connect your Speedtouch modem to IPCop, IPCop will detect its version, and display the correct file to upload.

Locate the Speedtouch firmware zip file on the Internet, download and extract the files onto your desktop machine. Then choose the appropriate file on your desktop machine, and use the Upload button to transfer it to IPCop.

At the moment, once you have uploaded the file, you need to login to a console on IPCop as 'root' and execute the following commands to extract the firmware files and move them to the correct location. (N.B. the example below is for a Revision 1 or 2 modem, the firmware file for a Revision 4 modem is called firmware.v4_b.bin).

$ cd /var/ipcop/alcatelusb/
$ /usr/sbin/firmware-extractor firmware.v0123.bin

This will create two files in the /var/ipcop/alcatelusb/ directory, speedtch-1.bin and speedtch-2.bin. These two files need to be moved to the /lib/firmware/ directory with this command:

$ mv speedtch-1.bin speedtch-2.bin /lib/firmware/

Once you have done this, you can use your Speedtouch USB ADSL modem.

You will probably also want to add /lib/firmware/speedtch-1.bin and /lib/firmware/speedtch-2.bin to /var/ipcop/backup/include.user so the files are automatically included in a System Restore.

2.4.2.2. Upload ECI ADSL Synch.bin File

Use this section to upload the synch.bin file to IPCop - ECI ADSL will not function before this has been done. Use the link specified to go to the web page and download the file to your desktop machine. Then choose the file on your desktop machine, and then press the Upload button to transfer it to IPCop.

Once this has been successfully uploaded, you can use ECI ADSL.

2.4.2.3. Upload Fritz!DSL Driver

Use this section to upload the ipcop-<version>-install-avmdrv.i486.tgz file to IPCop - Fritz!DSL will not function before this has been done. Use the link specified to go to the web page and download the file to your desktop machine. Then choose the file on your desktop machine, and then press the Upload button to transfer it to IPCop.

Once this has been successfully uploaded, you can use Fritz!DSL.

Note

The Fritz!DSL driver is available for x86 architecture only.
