michaelmurfy: @SumnerBoy stop tempting me...

 

 

 

michaelmurfy: What is with everyone tempting me...

 

Temptation removed, you can thank me later.

 

 

 

So I picked up the ERPoE-5 last night from @Blanch and set it up using this tutorial along with the UAC-AC Pro I picked up at the weekend. I'm still on VDSL so I have the Spark supplied HG659 bridged into the router. With this temporary setup in the living room with the AP sitting on the floor next to the HG659 I'm already getting much better wifi coverage of the full house with speed drops in the far bedrooms less than half what they were using the wifi on the HG659. This is just with the basic set-up without optimising the wifi settings yet. When the switch arrives I'll move everything to the garage in a cabinet and mount the AP more centrally in the house, then the process of running Cat 6 back to the living room and other rooms where I want wired ethernet.

 

Happy days. Thanks @michaelmurfy for the tutorial.

You need to read the Release notes. In this case, the fixes are from specific issues

 

  • [LoadBalancing] Fixed bug that caused failover load-balancing to be broken in 1.9.7 release. Discussed here
  • [PPPoE] Fixed bug that caused PPPoE client interace failure if username contains forward slash character. Discussed here.
  • [L2TPv3] Fixed bug that caused L2TPv3 interface to be excluded from bridge group after reconfiguration (e.g. source port changes). 

If none of these affect you (or worried about security etc), then I would ignore.


I fix stuff!

Why go for the USG then? Wouldn't an EdgeRouter be the far better choice - you can hack away at that for ever in a day.

 

 

My understanding is the USG is the same OS as EdgeRouter, so the same hacking can apply

 

or is that not the case?

Does anyone in the Auckland area have a console cable they wouldn't mind lending out? I need to do some troubleshooting on an ERPoe-5

Thanks in advance.

@Senecio You just need a Cisco Console (rollover) serial cable. Ask in the "Offers and Wanted" thread and I am sure you'll get a response quite quickly.

Yep, that's exactly the one. There's a lot of people on here using UBNT gear so I thought someone might have one lying around. Looks like Techexpress are the only place that stock them as I've tried PBTech and Jaycar.

Apologies if a dumb question, but as I am intending to configure my new Edgerouter POE5 this evening I will ask anyway.

 

My new ER POE5 has an RJ45 Console port, as a result I would have thought a rollover cable with two RJ45 connectors rather than Serial/USB would have been better?

 

Or is the USB/RS232 end of the cable mentioned required for the non switch device that is being used to do the configuration?

You don't need to use the console port, first boot connect to port 0 or 1 and should be able to connect to webui from there (quick start card in the box will sort you out)

Got basic config working over weekend  using port 0 and Michael's great tutorial, getting some expert help in tonight for VPN/DNS config.  Was concerned we may have needed consol access as well without having time to get the cable.

Hey guys, had one of these for a few weeks to replace my mikrotik now I've moved and got UFB rather than ADSL2+. Just a quick note on 2degrees and IPv6, I had to run these commands to get it to actually work:

 

set interfaces ethernet eth0 vif 10 pppoe 0 ipv6 address autoconf
set interfaces ethernet eth0 vif 10 pppoe 0 ipv6 dup-addr-detect-transmits 1
set interfaces ethernet eth0 vif 10 pppoe 0 ipv6 enable

 

I obviously have the ONT plugged into Eth0 and its VLAN10 tagged hence "vif 10".

If only that would work on my USG
