Depends on RPM(s) - openSUSE: expect, telnet
It's important to document one's DSL modem's line statistics (line stats) when the connection is working well. In the event an issue crops up (e.g. losing sync), you have a baseline to compare. More importantly, you can show your ISP the before and after line stats.
This script calls expect to log in to a Thomson DSL modem and fetch the line statistics. The results are displayed to stdout. See the script's Configuration section if you're modem is set up in a non-standard way (e.g. not the default user, etc.)
- Fixed bug where $MODEM wasn't being used.
