Hi I am on Vodafone UFB 200/50 unlimited I use Apple TV 3 And Unblockus. I also have a Surface Pro 2 Windows 8.1 when using the Netflix App I check the streaming rate and it is 5800 :). I also have a Roku 3 which doesn't work since the last update as I can't configure the HG659 router :(

Why can't you configure the router?

I have netflix, unblock-us, vodafone VDSL, roku3 and HG659. It works (although only for USA netflix).

Definitely working much more smoothly post proxy change (VF cable, Getflix DNS and Apple TV). No drops to SD or any buffering over the long weekend. Thank you VF.

Static routing cant be configured on the HG659 as far as we have seen.

There is a place to enter static routes... but yeah they didn't seem to work.
Instead of static routes I blocked 8.8.8.8 in the parental controls. Also I think the unblock-us DNS settings have to be entered in the "internet/internet settings" section instead of the "home network" section.

Hi there.  You just need to add 8.8.8.8 to the parental controls.  Don't try a static route, that seems to make weird stuff happen on the router.

When I tried all apple devices could connect to the wifi  but couldn't use it.  There is something particularly odd about the HG659 OS.

"Custom" :)

There are definitely a few bugs identified with Ipads causing issues.

If you can that would be great. Can you try forcing to 3850 or 4300 (ctrl+shift+alt+s together on a PC) and see what your performance is lik

xena7051: Hi

Have a family member who lives in Tauranga and  is a Trust Power customer.....any one know of Trust Power, if you are a customer has it been resolved?....from what I know  its not...we use Unblock-US as our  DNS service provider and below is what they have responded with.

The error we are getting has a message number of N8210....although its seems intermittent if we can or can't open a movie and get this error straight away


We have customers with Trust Power who still have this issue as well, so you are not alone!

Don't have 3850/4300 listed anymore and the box looks different than it did last night. Highest option I have is 3000. I've tried Chrome/FF/IE but can't get the older menu to come up. Smooth as silk at 3000 though.
