ADSL Router configuraton using script

By jushilli ·
I need to daily change between different ISP connections to perform certain tasks. I have a network connected to the internet through an Alcatel ADSL Speed Touch Router. Every time I want to change ISP I have to log in to the WEB based manangement and change the username and password for the PPP configuration and then change back afterwards. Is there a way to do this through a click on a button?

maybe if the router supported a command line interface you could make a batch file to do it at the click of a button. i am not familiar with that router. have you considered purchasing another router that you can leave configured?

i'm not sure how to do this but what I do at my company is to use 2 modems, with the main connecting to the switch. Whenever I feel the neccesity to switch ISP, I just swap the modems cables to the switch.

Hi there. We have worked on this before and this is what we did. Purchase a router that can accept telnet commands. Download a free telnet script tool from the web and create some scripts using the language of the router in question. We found that dlink accept commands very well.

I would like an answer that doesn't require purchasing other hardware. Is there possibility of using a script/macro to make configurations through the existing web tool?

The short answer is; No there is no magic "button" to give you what you want. The long answer is, yes there may be a way to do what you want, but it will require some work up front.

Alcatel DSL routers/modems are now manufactured by Thomson as their SpeedTouch line. Not knowing which specific model you have, we can't answer your question. If it happens to be the 710, you can find the Command Line Interface guide at the following URL: http://www.speedtouch.com/pdf/cli_ref_guide.pdf

You can then write a batch file to reprogram the modem for each ISP.
