no i dont think you can update via the sigma page, you could try it i suppose
heres a pic of SB5100MoD 104, looks nice



you will probably have to use a jtag, you can only use the serial rs232(max232) method if you have a P option when booting and looking at the hyperterminal
but my bet is it will be Jtag,
Motorola uses the 10 pin header here's some pictures, ignore the webstar one,
you have 2 to chose from, unbuffered no chip version and buffered chip version, the chip version is more reliable, but if you aint that electronic genius, go for unbuffered chipless, then you can use schwartzekatze blackcat or Jtag Utility_1.3 to load the firmware to the modem
schwartzekatze blackcat is ideally suited to the SB5100

i would do a lot of research before attempting anything like this, but there's plenty of knowledgeable people around the modem forums
at least heres the diagrams to get you started .


Motorola SB5100 UnBuffered Jtag is the 10 pin one

Yep Racky it looks very nice, However I will practice messing about with the Sigma settings, Telnet etc. before I get in to it with the jtag and German black cats,


NEW BABY = SLEEP DEPRIVATION

SLEEP DEPRIVATION + (modem + lack of knowledge + foreign software) = BRICK

hi

I been using my vm sub modem since this thread began, finally got reply from dude I got sb5100 modem from, who doesnt do em himself but gets them that way from some other scoundrel. anyway I asked him why it is givin me grief trying to change mac addy and he says the crook he gets them from password protects Sigma x2 firmware so I have to pay him tenner to get new mac in it...feckin greedy bastard

Anyhow can/has he done this or is he taking advantage of my naivety?

so what has he done? and can I bypass it?

That's a ridiculous thing to do.....first grass him up then invest in a jtag cable so you can put on your own firmware

If it's any help, here are a couple of telnet login/password snmpget display commands listed on another forum for sb5100mod firmware (no idea if it'll be the same for sigma-x2 142)

to display telnet login -
snmpget -v 1 -c public 192.168.100.1 1.3.6.1.4.1.4413.2.2.2.1.1.1.2.0

to display telnet pw -
snmpget -v 1 -c public 192.168.100.1 1.3.6.1.4.1.4413.2.2.2.1.1.1.3.0

Cheers mate

I didn't know whether to believe him or not when he told me he had password protected it?

I'm defo gonna learn how to put new firmware on this when I have a spare err week or two.

But was still hoping I might get into telnet, think I tried before using original login/password (he was prolly too lazy to change it) and it worked.

But then how would I remove his password protection on hardware changer once I'm in there? I wouldn't know where to start???

Anyone know?

im not that familiar with sb5100 sigma,
have a look on the sigma page, you should see telnet user/pass
like i said, im not familiar with sb5100 sigma, but you may be able to get a hidden page
by typing 192.168.100.1:1337

if you can get to the hidden page you might get access you need
also
if you can telnet to the modem via hyperterm or teraterm, you might be able to change the mac with these commands, telnet user/pass might be tcniso/authentic

cd non-vol
cd halif
mac_address 1 aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff
cd /
write

if non of that works, start a new thread in this forum on how to get access
or
have a look on the sigma site, tcniso click forum link on the left
ask a few questions on there, im sure if you can get to the sigma page or telnet via hyperterm you can change the mac

Cheers racky

Very interesting link there
esp this

Integrated Firmware Changer
SIGMA-X2 includes a very useful feature that allows you to upgrade to any nonsigned
firmware image (this is usually signified by the firmware name ending with
".bin"). To use this feature, start a TFTPD server with the firmware image you want
to upload in the base directory and then type the TFTP IP (of your server) and
firmware filename into the text boxes on the SIGMA web interface. Finally, click the
"download" button to begin the upgrade process.

Is this only for Sigma upgrades or do you think I can use this to change to the SB5100MoD firmware?

I will try the telnet mac change and post in this thread how I got on

Many thanks
