The Aztech DSL1015EW(S) is a 4-port Ethernet Integrated Wireless Modem that was produced in 2010s and given to customers of SingTel when they signed up for their broadband service. Most of these devices shipped with Firmware version 235.6.1, which had default settings that were specific to the telco. For example, the factory default SSID starts with “SINGTEL-” and the admin page is located at
While searching for its user manual, I discovered that Aztech has a similar retail model called DSL1015EN(L), and its latest firmware on their site is compatible with the DSL1015EW(S) router. The former’s firmware, though of smaller major version, is less restrictive and has more generic settings – like having the factory default SSID prefixed with “Aztech”.
This post talks about updating the DSL1015EW(S) router’s firmware.
Step 1: Getting the Firmware
Download the DSL1015EN(L) firmware version 230.106s.2 from this Aztech link.
Step 2: Connect and Login to Admin Console
Power on your DSL1015EW(S) router and connect your computer to the router using an ethernet cable. I will assume that your router has been factory reset.
192.168.1.254/singtel and enter the following credentials when prompted:
- User: admin
- Pass: H3ll0t3ch
Step 3: Update the Firmware
In the menu tree on the left, select “Management > Firmware Upgrade” and select the unzipped file downloaded in Step 1. A progress bar should appear, or wait for approximately 45 seconds for completion.
Once done, navigate to
192.168.1.254/admin and enter the following credentials when prompted:
- User: admin
- Pass: admin
In addition to the above SSID prefix change, you will also notice that the mio product logo on the top right is gone, and the menu and descriptions are more generic.
Bonus tip: you can actually SSH into the router (use IP with same user and pass) and type “
help” to see the list of commands that can be executed. Here is the list of commands from the updated firmware:
> help ? help logout reboot adsl atm brctl cat ddns df dumpcfg echo ifconfig kill arp defaultgateway dhcpserver dns lan passwd ppp remoteaccess restoredefault route save swversion wan ping ps pwd sntp sysinfo tftp wlctl
Enjoy your new firmware 🙂
