hi everyone, well i recently dug out my old ambit 250 modem, it was flashed along time ago by another member on here but now i have some valid macs and the correct settings.

ok so i open 250 configurator tool V1.21, it opens fine. but when i try to connect to 192.168.100.1 via telnet i get the error message "unable to connect to 192.168.100.1"

i have the 250 powerd on and have it connected to my router(192.168.1.7) via ethernet cable.

any ideas where im going wrong? even when i type 192.168.100.1 into the firefox toolbar i dont get the modems interface

any comments appreciated?

cheers

take it off ur router and connect it directly to the pc and just to be on the safe side, set ur local area connection to 192.168.100.10 and gateway to 192.168.100.1 then try the 250 configurator

Just a thought... if it was flashed a long time ago,is it protected against taking the 'alex' update (Perhaps someone may post the correct name for it)...
