Telstra Business Smart Modem V7610 V2.2.2.28

OK everyone, ready to have your minds blown.


I have two sites.. both running Telstra Business Smart Modems (V7610) with V2.2.2.28 firmware.  Both are configured in the webconsole to respond to ICMP (ping).


One responds... one doesnt.


So either :


a) Telstra blocks ICMP on SOME connections before they hit the end point.


b) Re-Badged Netgear Tesltra Modem's are garbage and their configs can be corrupted with no recourse (ive seen this with other model netgears.. and the only answer was replace of the device with different model).


This may also explain other peoples issues with VPN and Port Forwarding.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

I have three sites using these devices and this firmware, They respond to ping for a period after a reboot but then stop... the port forwarding fails totally. When i called (and was on the phone for 1 hour) and got one downgraded to .26 it automatically upgraded over night... going to try and disable ip v6 and see if they helps
