I have 2 x Technicolor TG582n routers from different Internets Service Providers.  One of them [Plusnet] keeps going 'ape' and the settings get changed making the router unuseable.  Can the original ISP get into the device and block them?  The other [Utility Warehouse] also had the same problem but at the moment is behaving.


have of course, on both occasions changed the configuration so that my present ISP is providing my internet!  It worked for a few days and then the settings were altered.


The User Management settings were changed from Administrator to Intercept and could not be changed. See attached fileAttached File  Diagnostic intercept.jpg   37.03KB   0 downloads

Yes. the   "owner" ISP can control those units as they have the maintinence log ins and can take over control.  Buy your own and be sure to change the password.
