[AusNOG] Unlock Telstra NBN Porn

What he likely means is.. His modem fried, and he plugged in one which
didn't support vectoring, and so after 10-15 mins, his port was shutdown.
Been there, done that, multiple times, multiple lines :)

NBNco do NOT like non-vectoring modems (I can understand why..).  Plug one
in, and you get 10-15 minutes, then your port gets locked out.  Only way to
get it unlocked is to plug in the original RSP-supplied modem, and request
a port reset, or if it's not available, and you don't fib a little and say
'yeah no problems, I've plugged the original one in now', you get to have a
tech come out and test the line/port with their vectoring-enabled test set.

I'd suggest he corrects the settings/firmware on his modem to support
vectoring, then call Telstra back and say he's managed to source a
replacement Telstra modem from a friend who has just shifted out of a house
which had Telstra NBN, and can they please reset the port now..

 We ran to the sounds of thunder.
We danced among the lightning bolts,
 and tore the world asunder
