I'm using a Beam supplied Volktek Router and haven't been able to get PPPOE to work since this morning. Coincidentally the net was down since last night and I wonder if they did something to mess up my router:scared:

Remote management !

This! I get routine SMSes from Beam asking me not to turn off the router as they will be 'updating the firmware'.

The net was on and off for me too last night but I am quite certain it had to do with the Ganesh Immersion than anything.

Seems like Beam are remotely accessing all their supplied routers through TR-069 &managed to gimp my Router. It's ****ing creepy & I'm seriously considering switching to another provider
