The new CenturyLink Q1000 busybox seems to be missing some crucial commands - namely rm, cp and ln.. It does have tftp so if I can, somehow find a server with binaries, I might be able to get those commands back. Does anybody know where I might find these?

There's a swversion command that returns: QAQ01-31.00L.34

H/W on physical box says: 1A

I found the answer to my problem burried deep in the comments section of this post: here.

Apparently, you have to type "sh" to get into the real BusyBox shell on this device. Once I did that, I got everything I needed.
