Got a 4200e it was locked so i unlocked it. i then put on hackware didnt work as it wouldnt lock onto frequency, then read hours later hackware does not work on 4200e so then went back and reset everything and got fiberware on it. it still did not lock onto frequency, so then i read it might be in hybrid mode.
so do some more reading and it tells me that the new modified fiberware will work it, so i give that a go still no luck. i know the mac works as i have a 5101e working it and disconnect it then try this one. finally i read that onestep zup does the trick. downloaded all the java but it does not seem to work, keeps telling me that there is a javaruntime error socket or something.
please if anyone can please help me. i live in the telepest area and i got the modem from frace so it should be pal already.

I thought You would need it in hybrid mode for telewest area, as I thought that only exc&w was Eurodocsis so it may be that you need to enable hybrid mode to lock on to stream. I have 4200e in exc&w and had to by an 'e' model. To find out for sure try here
