I was messing around with titanium 2122a, seems like you can easily disable the www.excitel.com SSID via telnet. Telnet to your router and type the following commands

tcapi get Wlan_Entry1 SSID
Check if the SSID shown is actually www.excitel.com or not otherwise change Entry* number.
tcapi set Wlan_Entry1 EnableSSID 0
tcapi wlan_commit
can you please tell in detail step by step. Thanks!
i am getting error:
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Microsoft Telnet> open 192.168.1.1
Connecting To 192.168.1.1...Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed

Is nobody going to say a word on mentions of Baidu, Siro and other Chinese websites in config file of Syrotech router

Has anyone tried removing those URLs?

Excitel is losing it's credibility now.

I have not looked at the config of Syrotech router. However, it pretty clear most of these chinese ONUs share the same firmware underneath. If a vulnerability is found, it will affect all these devices.

My general advice is to disable routing in these ONU's and use them in bridge mode with a personal router downstream of the ONU.

@idgaf , how did you telnet to the router. It's giving me below error:

"Connecting To 192.168.1.1...Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed"

Edit: Figured it out, I had another AP which had same IP 192.168.1.1 configured. Connected directly to titanium 2122a and was able to disable the "www.excitel.com" SSID using telnet.

Thanks a lot @idgaf for providing us the solution :)
Bro can you help , I am getting the same error. how to fix this plox

For those having problem connecting / Telnet to the router perform either of the step :
1. Directly connect to router using LAN and then telnet
2. Or restart your router then telnet
Above two steps will be sufficient otherwise try using another device and perform above steps.

Whenever I get the error, I perform either of the step to get error resolved.

My router: Genexis GX router

and Thanks a lot @idgaf for sharing the solution

im also unable to telnet into 2122a, tried multiple times but keep getting same error.

Code:
Connecting To 192.168.1.1...Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed.

i had to disable 2ghz AP to get rid of it.
