NIM100 Web Interface Password (Hack Part 5)

Now that we have root access, how do we change the configuration so that we can manage this NIM100 for our needs?

http://169.254.1.1 from your web browser of choice will get you to the web interface of the NIM100.


Oohps, Password required ....

A quick check of ./etc/passwd gives us the password "entropic" no quotes.

... and voila' we are in.

Happy hacking, and please post a comment if you decide to do something with this !!!

I have been playing with the Motorola NIM100 using the info you provided here. I got in no problem. At first it was set to 169.254.1.2. I set it to 192.168.0.111 in an effort to get it to work with my new router (Dlink DIR-655), Video On Demand no longer works. I have opened ports in my router, added the MAC Address of the NIM100 to the router, forwarded traffic to the address for the NIM100, I even put the NIM100 in the DMZ, no go. Seems I need to use the Dlink DI-624 that Verizon provided to get this to work. Perhaps I should reset the device to factory settings? I do not know how to do it, or I would.

The STB have do have to get a IP address I believe between xxx.xxx.xxx.100 and 150 they use DHCP v6 in order to recognize that something is a STB. Since I do not have FiOS TV yet I did not look too much into this. But I will definitely try to look into this by looking at the settings of the actiontec.

I made great progress with the NIM 100 and my router setup last night. Apparently, it does assign an IP address to each of the 5 boxes in my house. I set the router up to recognize the MAC addresses of each box and pre-assigned a DHCP address to each one. The router shows them in use as 192.168.x.x addresses. When I telnet into the NIM100 and do an arp -a command as well as an ifconfig -a, then you really see alot of info. The sames 5 boxes the router sees as 192.168.x.x, the NIM100 see as 169.254.x.x. Also I was able to set the date on the NIM100 with a date -s command. The NIM100 appears to be running uclinux. It also makes reference to the Intel ixp425 access library (CSR1.1) and BusyBox v.0.60.4. I'm not sure what those are.

I am trying to modify this thing to be used as a WAN bridge. But it can't go down to 1000ghz where the WAN signal from Verison comes in. I think its the mask, but I am not sure how to change it, any help?

/proc/tags is a flash pseudo-filesystem used to store the configurations.
If you overwrite /proc/tags/CLNK, the settings will be saved.

Change the Channel Mask to enable all the channels that you want.

Thanks for your NIM100 hacking!

I decided to buy some NIM100s on eBay thanks to your posts, instead of buying Geffen Ethernet-over-Coax boxes. Will use them to connect the "garden house" to my ADSL connection.
