Getting the firmware

Different versions of the Speedtouch use different firmware. If you already have firmware you know works with your modem then stick with that. If you're not sure what firmware to use, first find out what revision your modem is. Use the command

grep -B 1 "THOMSON
ALCATEL" /proc/bus/usb/devices

At the end of the first line it should say Rev= X.00 where X is the version of the modem you have.

If you have an old green revision 0 or a revision 2 modem (they're usually purple/burgundy) the KQD6_3.012 file from this zip file is the one to use. That zip also holds the ZZZL_3.012 firmware for the (usually silver) revision 4 modem.

The old green rev 0's can be temperamental, if it doesn't like the KQD6_3.012, try the mgmt.o firmware from this tarball

To prepare the firmware, so the kernel can load it, you'll need to split it in two with a precompiled copy of the firmware extractor.

You will need a copy of the br2684ctl bridging utility to be able to do PPPoE over ATM, so save a copy of that.

In next step You need to login as root so I suggest to save downloaded files in /root directory.

Preparing system

To configure things outside your home folder you need to have root privileges. Root can do a lot of damage so be careful or you may need to spin the CD and reinstall. But some things have got to be done as root, so logout of your own account and log in as root

Install the firmware

If you've got a revision 0 or revision 2 modem unzip the KQD6_3.012 and use the firmware-extractor to split it into two parts, speedtch-1.bin and speedtch-2.bin :

unzip SpeedTouch330_firmware_3012.zip
chmod +x firmware-extractor
./firmware-extractor KQD6_3.012

For a revision 4 modem it's basically the same but with different firmware

unzip SpeedTouch330_firmware_3012.zip 
chmod +x firmware-extractor 
./firmware-extractor ZZZL_3.012 

If you've got some other firmware file you want to try, split it in two with the firmware-extractor in the same way

chmod +x firmware-extractor 
./firmware-extractor /path/to/your/firmware 

Now you've prepared the firmware, copy it into hotplugs firmware folder, /lib/firmware

cp speedtch* /lib/firmware

Install bridging utility

PPPoE over ATM needs this :

install -m 744 br2684ctl /usr/sbin

Configure pppd

Create file /etc/ppp/peers/speedtch

touch /etc/ppp/peers/speedtch

Edit with your preferred editor. Copy and paste this, change username@isp and password.

noipdefault
defaultroute
user 'USERNAME@ISP'
password 'PASSWD'
noauth
updetach
usepeerdns
plugin rp-pppoe.so
mtu 1492
mru 1492
###Uncomment if u wish permanent connection
#persist
nas0
### You may need to uncomment these
### options to connect with some ISP's.
### They disable compression.
#noaccomp
#nobsdcomp
#nodeflate
#nopcomp
#noccp
#novjccomp
### If the firmware loads and pppd won't
### connect uncomment this option to make
### pppd be more verbose in the system log
#debug
### For more details (and more options)
### read man pppd

Hmmm file with plain password , so better :

chmod 600 /etc/ppp/peers/speedtch

The init script

Create file /etc/init.d/speedtch

touch /etc/init.d/speedtch

Edit with your preferred editor. Copy and paste this

Change VPI.VCI for the VPI/VCI numbers for your country/ISP. For example in Romania it would be 0.35

Change or Comment lines (158,171 bold in this listing)regarding masquerading.

Now change the permissions on that script so it can be executed and use the insserv command so that it gets run automagically during the boot process.

chmod 744 /etc/init.d/speedtch
insserv speedtch

Create a symbolic link

cp -s /etc/init.d/speedtch /usr/sbin/rcspeedtch

Reboot and you should be online.

You may control connection with rcspeedtch |start|stop|restart|status|
