I have a vmg3006-d70a which is still having the initial firmware. With that given, I can not add the necessary vlan 7 tag. I already tried to update the firmware update, but the device is not accepting the update. Even after a reset.

Can you provide me the firmware for 2020, or is there another option to force a firmware update?

    I was able to help myself.

    DO THIS ONLY WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO! YOU CAN DESTROY YOUR DEVICE!


    1. I opened up developer mode:
    http://modem_ip/webng.cgi?sid=auto&controller=WebConfig&action=hiddenDevActivation

    2. Activate ssh. Hint: You have to setup a password for this user and set up the network, which should be allowed to connect.

    3. Bring the firmware you want to install to the device - there is no SCP available:

    cat firmware-zyxel-vmg3006-d70a-v17.39.17.1/ZyFW-17.39.17.1-2022-01-06.img | ssh [email protected] "cat > /tmp/ZyFW-17.39.17.1-2022-01-06.img"

    4. Verify the checksum! I used md5sum which is fine for me!

    5. Upgrade firmware:
    /bin/web_upgrade -d -r -m /tmp/<firware-file>
