Root access Thomson TG789VN
« on: July 19, 2013, 02:38:40 PM »
Hi

Please advice me here. I have a Thomson router TG789VN provided from my ISP. It does it purpose but otherwise it is very limited in the terms of customer options.
I need to enable WOL (Wake ON Lan) from the internet. In order to do this i need to go into my router and save/backup a configuration. I do not have those options. I have enabled telnet from Win 7.
How do i telnet to my router? I mean i know it is port 23, but i the device list, I can´t seem to see my router? ANd there is no option to enter the router IP? Do i just assign the port 23 to a pc or do i have to assign it to the actual router, if so please explain?
I want root access, please help!!!

I dont know anything about the firmware for them. Anytime I need more options I usally use the 3rd party DD-WRT firmware. But I have never checked if they have one for a thomson.

ISP routers are normally locked down to keep users from changing it.
