@rb99 There is no need for static route at all if you've got d-nat in place... The idea is using d-nat means devices don't have to wait to fall back and think they're talking to Google DNS / OpenDNS when really they're talking to your provider.

 

The idea with d-nat is if you've got a device that queries 8.8.8.8 then this request will go back to your routers DNS server. I recommend using your routers IP in the Rewrite IP as if you change DNS servers on your router you'll only from there need to change it in one place. Also, your router does DNS caching.

I think I know what you mean but to be honest I really don't know what I'm doing. I decided to get a decent router in case I ever go for Gigabit internet and which talks to a decent access point as I literally have ethernet cables running round the floor as the existing wifi isn't good in our two story place.

 

So am hoping for help with the specific commands for putting in specific places. So looking at reply # 2031353 on the previous page I put the router IP (probably 192.168.whatever) in the Rewrite IP space. But what about the blank Source IP, Destination IP, Source Port, Rewrite Port, should they be blank ? Have I got Source Group and Destination Group the right way round ?

 

Am sorry to be such a pest, I've looked in the manual but its all (Ancient) Greek to me.

I'm getting fibre with Voyager in the next few weeks. I have Google Wifi which, I believe, won't connect to the ONT because it doesn't support vllan tagging. Does the Ubiquiti EdgeRouter ER-X connect directly to tho ONT allowing me to simply connect the Google Wifi to the Ubiquiti EdgeRouter ER-X eth1 port?

@LesC better yet - request your Voyager connection without VLAN tagging. It is on the signup form. They offer everything 😊

I'm glad i came across this thread and surprised I hadn't seen it earlier. 

 

Using the Archer C9 on a BigPipe Gigabit connection, and my speed test is terrible; certainly within the lower 700's

 

Tempted to put some money into the Ubiquiti hardware! At the end of the day, your paying a premium price for a service, I'd like to get the most from it.

Thanks all for another informative thread!

 

I wonder - is it possible to use a Ubiquity Edgerouter 4, with a populated SFP (LC terminated) module AS a UFB ONT/fibre gateway?

 

Has anyone tried this?

 

For clarity I am talking about connecting thus:

 

Incoming fibre -> ITP -> fibre patch lead -> LC SFP module in Ubnt ER4.

 

My primary reason for suggesting this is so as to "reduce the box count". I am mulling an upgrade to gigabit fibre. Not afraid of separate devices for separate functions (in fact I prefer that approach!).

 

For ref my current setup on UFB is:

 

Fritzbox 7340 as primary router (VLANID=10 tagging for UFB) - older model but this thing is bulletproof on a 100Mbit UFB connection and I can get up to 11.5MegaBYTES/s d/l on a torrent without any issue.

 

ATA featureset is great (I chopped into existing house wiring and use one port - impedence handling is good enough for doing the whole house) and built-in DECT base station for cordless phones is all brilliant. Have had to reboot it umm - never... WiFi was "passible" but not amazing, so I disabled it.

 

GigE PoE switch -> Aerohive WAP, model AP230. Again, slightly older model but it frequently copes with over 30x devices connected. Rock solid reliability and great performance for LAN access to internal file server.

 

 

 

So, for an upgrade to gigabit UFB, clearly I'll need a new router as the Fritzbox 7340 only has 100Mbit WAN port. I still plan to use the Fritzbox as a downstream (routing disabled) VoIP platform - ATA & DECT base station since I already have it, it works well and otherwise I'd have to buy something else to cover that featureset.

 

Anyone tried doing as I propose with the SFP module in ER4 acting as the INcoming fibre link and dispensing with the Local Fibre Company-supplied ONT ?

 

Cheers,

 

tU

Hi, whilst you can get SFP GPON modules, they are not necessarily supported by ALU's ISAM and are most definitely not supported by Chorus's implementation.

 

Edit: just re reading your post again, you seem to be of the mis understanding that the UFB is supplied as fibre ethernet, this is not correct, its GPON, so standard single mode SFP modules will not work, but GPON ones do exist, but note my original comments above.

switch to the 7490 and you will still have a bulletproof router but your speeds will go up. 





Common sense is not as common as you think.

Nope. You'd still missing the UFB modem.

Thanks - do you know whether the GPON SFPs might be supported by Enable Network's implementation? (my LFC)
