BT blames 'faulty router' for mega outage. Did they try turning it off and on again?

Re: 'Faulty Router'

The frog was crap, I'll give you that, but what else was there in its day?

The best SoHo ADSL modem I've ever had was the BT-badged Voyager 2100 and its close relative the V2110. Good at doing what it needs to do, decent user interface, readily usable user-friendly diagnostics and reasonably detailed troubleshooting info for when something breaks, *and* manageable by SNMP, including the DSL Line Statistics MIB. Hadn't seen anything close to it since the D-Link DSL604+. The Voyager 2100 was a GPL-based router (though BT forgot the implications of that detail initially) closely related to another vendor's product, probably a 3Com in a different box, though I forget.
