So I'm getting great speeds, but just wondering why NZ fiber is limited to the 430mbit up, compared to others (in other countries) which seem to be able to get 940/940

It's because you're paying for a 1000/500 product from your ISP. If you want to pay more you can buy a faster connection.

 

 

Completely understand this is exactly what I'm paying for. Was wondering if it's more of a technical limitation with the ZN fiber design.

 

And yes Chorus is LFC

Nope, as mentioned if you pay more you get more. For example you get 1000/1000 for $499+GST/month from MyRepublic.

Hey guys stay on topic here. If you want to discuss download speeds it'll be best to create another thread as this isn't related to the Edgerouter at all.

thanks for the tutorial!

 

I'v got Vodafone UFB with landline, by using the HG659 router provided by VDF I can connect the phone to the phone port on HG659, how can I set up the phone on ERL, so that I can connect the cordless phone to ERL?

 

 

Hmm Vodafone UFB is pretty suboptimal since they force the use of their router. It may work behind the Edgerouter (you'll need to turn off VLAN 10 and set the Vodafone router to fetch via DHCP) however I am not 100% sure. Easiest option is to ditch the landline and go naked? Skinny Direct is cheap :)

 

 

I'v tried with no success. Now I'm going to replace the landline with Vodafone Home Phone Wireless Local.

How do they force it? surely just mac address?

 

 

 

 

VDF is not given out the SIP password, Its the same for Spark

Hey guys,

 

could somebody check please - what is the performance penalty if you enable QoS and/or traffic analysing (a thing to let you see what type of traffic is going through)

 

I have a feeling that enabling those may actually disable hw offloading.

 

 

 

Thanks!!

Enabling QoS disables offloading.  The new traffic analysis done on the router is done in a way that allows offloading, but if you are using some older traffic analysis such as netflow, enabling that disables offloading.

 

With offloading disabled, the best you can get seems to be about 300 Mbit/s throughput, but with a real life configuration, expect somewhere between 80 and 180 Mbit/s.

Thank you, fe31nz, for the answer.

 

Can you recommend any home-grade (means not too expensive) router that can do near 1Gbps routing with all "bells and whistles" turned on - like QoS, NAT, Firewall etc?

 

How about some Cisco 8xx for example?

I blame this tutorial for the Ubiquiti shopping spree I went on yesterday. You need a referral system for a commission on sales you get them haha.

For starters this is off-topic again however you do not at all need QoS on a Gigabit connection. The Edgerouter will do fine. QoS is only useful on slower connections.

Remember I have a UniFi controller you can also use if you like :)

See Here (and discuss there also). You need a controller for UniFi gear to work at its full potential.

I'm trying to expose Plex to the outside world.

 

I've enabled UPNP2 but it doesn't seem to be letting plex through.

 

I'm with bigpipe and have a static ip.

 

I know I'm missing something but......no idea what
