Recovering a PPPoE Password from an Actiontec Q1000
I needed to find the PPPoE password on my Actiontec Q1000, but the web gui was not allowing me to do it. So to grab the password, you need to telnet or ssh into your router. Find its ip, usually 192.168.0.1 and telnet or ssh in. Log in with your admin user account and password.Run the "dumpconfig" command and the last bit it spits out will be a section called PPPCredential. You can grab the password from here. You should see something like this: ===Actiontec xDSL Router=== Login: admin Password: > dumpconfig ..... <X_00247B_PPPCredential> <Username>firstname.lastname@example.org</Username> <Password>M43MF55vG</Password>
This does not work sadly. The password is hashed or encrypted in some fashion.

It was a Roland Juno-6 in what looked to be good shape with just a broken ARP mode select switch and a key with a broken end. They just got it in and didn't want to fix it so they were selling it as it really cheap. Like really really cheap. So I bought it instantly and went home and found a key and switch on ebay for about $10 each. Replacing the key was a fairly simple, but the switch was a little more involved.
Roland Juno-6 key replacement
1. Remove the two upper screws on the left and right side of the wooden side panels.
2. Remove the screws on the bottom of the synth that attach the keys to the frame. There will be two rows of screws aligned with the front and back of the keys.
3. Gently flip up the metal control panel lid.
4. Remove the spring attached to the top rear of the key you want to replace.
5. Lift up the keys gently. I did not remove the cable bundle coming from them. I jus…
The Roland JP-8000 I have come into possession of needed a new battery in it, as it was displaying the "Low Battery" message. So after finding a good video on YouTube on how to change the battery I noticed the pitchbend wheel and the ribbon controller stopped working. I was thinking I broke something until after stumbling around google I found a very helpful post from Andy T over at Roland Clan. After the battery is changed, sometimes you need to re-calibrate the pitch and ribbon controllers.

After you replace the battery in the JP,you will need to perform the following steps to get the bender & ribbon controller to work.
1. Before turning the JP on, hold down the SYNC, 12db/24dB and TYPE buttons.
2. Keep holding the buttons down and turn on the JP. It will take awhile but eventually the screen will show 1 midi test.
