Cutover came and went, won’t connect

 

That's not great! Fire me a PM here with name on your account and address, and I'll get the brainboxes to take a peek for you.

I engaged chorus directly and they finished installing ONT at 1pm.
Signed up with quic at 2:27pm. Connection activated at 4pm.

They activated port 2 on the ONT unsure why but they did tell me in the activation email.

Didn't even need to change any config on my Mikrotik which was using a bridged adsl modem.

Overall very happy. It's nice to have a decent upload speed finally.

Welcome on board @jm3! 🙌

 

With the port 2 - when Chorus provision an ONT using the "Chorus Connect" process (where the customer and Chorus arrange the ONT install together, without an ISP involved), Chorus initially block port 1 of the ONT, as they need a service order to install the ONT, then remove this after the install.
When an ISP comes along quickly after install however, this port is still blocked off. We can either contact Chorus to get this removed, or to speed things up, just activate the next port. 👍

Well I took the plunge, very quick cutover, spent over an hour looking how to untag VLAN, then found it was referred to as IPTV (just in case anyone else has the same issue, was set to STUFF FIBRE, set it to NONE). However most of the web pages I'm trying to get to are showing as unavailable. Once the connection is there it is ok, so I'm wondering if there are routing tables or some such that I need to reset? Have a very unhappy wife as she is working from home :(

What router? Could it be the router is configured with a different MTU?

My mtu works as 1492 or 1500 on quic. I set maximum to 1508 on mikrotik and it defaulted to 1500.

Correction. Maximum MTU set to 1500 or 1508 routeros defaults to 1480. Maximum MTU set to 1492 and it stays at 1492. Sorry getting a bit off topic here.

It was definitely the router, couldn't configure the MTU past 1492, so went and bought a NetGear, configured, and all set.

 

Their Facebook chat was very responsive and helpful

Thinking of changing to Quic, however as I host servers I want to know what the routing is like with other providers locally in chch. Majority of people that will be accessing it are on MR and Voyager.

Mainly wanting to know if it'll go to aus before coming back like it would with Spark
