Hi. New NBN connection and using supplied Huawei HG659 modem.
Once I have configured the modem for my home network, how do I back up the configuration?

Any advice appreciated.

Hi @gbf2615,

Welcome to the community!

 

Backup configuration function is not supported on this modem.

 
Please let me know should you require further assistance. Cheers!

Is this also true for the Archewr modems ? Option shows in the operators guide, but doesn't appear to be there in fact.

Hi @spyder,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I'd like to know the exact Model number the Archer modem you're pertaining to.
 

If you can post a screen shot of the page that would be great and I will have it checked.

 

Cheers!

Hi, Shayne  thanks for the quick response. I'm still learning the ropes on this site so hope the pics are viewable.  Modem in question is a VR1600v . 

Manual can be found here       https://static.tp-link.com/Archer VR1600v_V1_UG.pdf

attached hopefully is a snap of the advanced system tools page showing nothing about backup/restore.

cheers

Hi @spyder. Back up configuration feature is not supported on TPG supplied VR1600 modems. Let me know should you require further assistance.

You need to log in possibly as administrator.

Go to maintain.

Then Device management.

There you can backup and upload the config file.

Handy when you replace the modem with the same model.
