100MBps speed limit? How fast is your ISP?

1GBps the highest plan, 500Mbps mid-range...and 300MBps for low-end.
I got the highest plan. It's also very cheap - only 10$

i guess what I was dumping the squashfs only using cat /dev/mtd5 > /var/tmp/usb/sda1/backup1.bin command.
Hi apoklyps3 ,
Sorry for late response beceause of im very busy with some jobs and a lot of works Smilie

I could see for a few hours at the images..
It takes a lot of time to study it in depth but i see some files in the images so it look MIPS arch executable ( kernel code ) and
other kernel data ( but i m not sure consistency of this data , i could not test it due to limited time ) and the other one contains two boot data ( i guess binary bootloader and configs )..
as I understand it we must the update the rootfs that contains ( /etc/ and others dirs ) ..
so i will continue to examine ( when i have time )

now if you have the firmware image ( one-piece ) , can you attach here it ?
and can you attach the other mtd ( ( 2-3-4-5-6) especially rootfses ) parts ( thanks )

unfortunately the firmare image is not public. the router is branded by the ISP and automaticaly updates the firmware.
My guess is that they put the firmware somewhere and it gets updated on a reboot.
Hopefuly I'll be able to intercept it next time there will be an update.
I have probed /bin/busybox myself and it seems to be an ELF-64 kind of executable...not sure what to make of that ...
the files I attached before were from mtdblock0 and 1 , because when trying to do it on mtd0 and 1 i got "dd: can't open '/dev/mtd0': No such file or directory",wich is weird because they are mentioned in "cat /proc/mnt"
In /dev I have mtd from 5 to 7 and mtdblock from 0 to 7. which of them do you want me to post?

One gigabit is fast enough to download a DVD image in less than a minute. I envy you.
