Just signed up for the Hosting Direct GZ special for 100 GB per month on VDSL2 a few days ago, and purchased a ZyXEL P870H-51a v2 modem. I'm having trouble with the settings, so if some kind soul can help out, I would be grateful.
I have entered the following parameters:
MTU 1452 (is this a typo on the HD web site?)
PPP Username: *****@adsl.hd.net.nz
PPP Password: *********
PPoE Service Name? (not sure what to add here, of if it is important)
Authentication Methods: Auto
Enable NAT, Symmetric NAT
Obtain DNS info from WAN server
Acording to the Hosting Direcet help desk this should be enough to be assigned my static IP address, but no such thing happens.
All of this happens at the start of the long weekend, so as well as having to now use mobile broadband for the next three days, I'm without a telephone as my VoIP system isn't connected anymore. (I suggested to the kids we spend quality time together instead of internet time, or maybe watch TV like folks used to do hundreds of years ago).
Anyone else use this modem with Hosting Direct?
