I have had a bit of trouble getting my ntl 250 to get a signal using cm_tuner 14 as specified in all the guides. Today I tried all of them 1-20, finally cm_tuner 19 worked! (wish I'd gone down from 20!). Anyway cm_tuner is BCM3419 I think?

My question is, if my cm_tuner setting is not the normal, then what else is different? Has anyone else here had to use cm_tuner 19?

I'm asking this because it still won't connect, it can't lock its ranging response as I mentioned in the topic here:

Hi cheesy,
did you follow the 250 tut, including this bit? (whole file is located in downloads section)
Now to confure the other settings required to get online.


Code:
cd \non
cd hal
cm_tuner 19
write
annex_a (also try annex_b as this worked for me - mashleylad27)
write
usb_mac_address <your usb mac address here>
write

Power the off and on again.

Give it a minute to connect and obtain an IP address. You should then be able to access the web.


Now to force the modem to use the 10mb config file.

Reconnect to the modem via telnet using Hypertermal (as you did before)

Type in:


Code:
cd \non
cd doc
dhcp_settings
My IP Address: [192.168.100.1]
Subnet Mask: [255.255.255.0]
Router IP Address: [192.168.100.254]

Those are the only 3 that really need to be changed.
Do you want to change the other settings? [no] Y
TFTP Server IP Address: [10.10.10.254] type in the IP of your TFTP server here
Config file name: [cm.bin] cmreg-ntlhm120-bund03.cm
Time Server IP Address: [10.10.10.254]
SysLog Server IP Address: [10.10.10.254]

Now type in the following lines:


Code:
enable force_cfgfile true
write

Now reboot the modem.

You should still be able to connect to the web. You can check which config file you are running by accessing
http://192.168.100.1 and look in the Connection page.

Now it is important to change the modems telnet username & password to prevent unauthorised access.

Reconnect to the modem via telnet using Hyperterminal (as you did before)

Type in:


Code:
cd \non
cd msg
user_name <your desired username here>
password <your desired password here>
write

The settings will not be change until you reboot your modem.

cm_tuner 14 is used on the ntl 200

Yes this worked great thanks. I was just being stupid not reading thoroughly. All the tutorials basically say the same thing so I was just glossing over most of them. My own fault.
