TP-LINK TD-8810B ADSL router (aka the cheapest one I could find)

I was surprised when I opened the box, and first paper was GPL. I was surprised even more when I telneted to the machine, typed "sh" and got busybox as root.

The reset of the day was not that nice -- I called O2, they closed the deal, and only after that told me that it will take up to 7 days to mail me the ADSL passwords -- using snail mail. Ouch.

Ok, fortunately they sent me SMS after 4 days, and I was able to call them and get the config. Good so far.
