DSL Modem 192.168.a.b botnet member me?

I need a hint or a clue. Some four weeks or even more I try to change the password for my wifi access of the
DSL Router without success. I access 192.168.x.x and filling in username as well as the password I am stuck.
Literally nothing happens and the support line tells me that this is not their department.

So looking around for the manufacturer and some kind of clue (after resetting it twice) I found this article

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/tr-06...-darren-martyn

talking about some kind of botnet, publishing list of DSL-Modems, and just my provider and one of the models matches. I could not find a proper new software on the manufacturers site, therefore I went on e.g.


Code:
ip a | grep inet

So I should test it again in another equipment or complain against the provider for not testing it. And how can I test it for some virus with the terminal? Some other hints out there?????
Thanks in advance.
May this thread should be placed to hardware, but I consider it part of my security as well as of others.

If the modem/router is delivered/sold by the provider and they deny support, they might lose a customer next time Linux
Anyway, I have no clue about this but you can get alternative FW for WLAN-routers. Not sure if this is the case for yours, but the projects have usually listed models of routers that are supported iirc. I tried once DD-WRT with my Asus WLAN-Router and it worked well.
Check Wikipedia for a list of available projects.
Though keep in mind, you can trash your router with it, if the update fails.

SOLVED DSL-Modem being invaded?

So I will have a look at this link and maybe looking for a new router as well. It should be a task for the provider, but over here there is a huge lack of qualified staff. So thanks a lot, hope it will work out.

To the moderator this can be set to be SOLVED, but some more words for the link given

ZyXEL P8702N [OpenWrt Wiki][]=mitrastar

my OEM

Supported Devices - DD-WRT Wiki

How to hack your wireless router firmware: Page 2 | TechRadar

or many other sites.

As a matter of fact, it is fascinating this materia, indeed. But I could not even acces on the terminal my own 192.168.1.2 or something like that using the command
Code:
telnet

or
Code:
ssh

followed by the 192.168.1.2. No login using any password that should be used for that.
I had downloaded before OPNsense-17.1-OpenSSL-nano-amd64.img.bz2, nontheless this will never work until having more information on that hardware and given access to it. So may someone can give me a hint how to figure out and access the nand-chips or whatever on such a DSL-Modem?
