Hoping the forum can help. A question on cutting over an Edgerouter Lite to directly connect to the ONT. ISP = Spark UFB. 

 

Current config is ONT > HG659b > ERL and I want the HG659b out of the mix connecting the ONT directly to eth0 on the ERL. 

 

I don't want to run through the WAN+2LAN2 wizard for setup as I don't want to loose the existing config of the ERL. Can I simply add a new  PPPoE interface to eth0 VLAN ID 10 (eth0.10) and then directly connect the ONT? I am doing this all remotely and just want to get the person at the other end to re-patch once the change is committed.

 

interfaces {
    bridge br0 {
        aging 300
        bridged-conntrack disable
        hello-time 2
        max-age 20
        priority 32768
        promiscuous disable
        stp false
    }
    ethernet eth0 {
        address dhcp
        description Internet
        duplex auto
        firewall {
            in {
                name WAN_IN
            }
            local {
                name WAN_LOCAL
            }
        }
        speed auto
    }
    ethernet eth1 {
        address 192.168.10.1/24
        description Local
        duplex auto
        speed auto
    }
    ethernet eth2 {
        address 192.168.20.1/24
        description WiFi
        duplex auto
        speed auto
    }
    loopback lo {
    }
}

If they have working internet, leave it be. Not a time to be breaking their connection given you're not going to be able to remotely fix if/when the connection breaks. unless you talk them through it all.

I would normally leave it be. But this is to setup a L2TP IPSEC VPN to allow remote access for working from home due to the current situation... I have configured L2TP VPN on an ERL before and it works fine but the HG659b won't do NAT / port forwarding on the ports required for L2TP to work hence why I need it removed. Unless someone knows how to get L2TP working on a ERL that sits behind a HG659b.

Can't you configure the VPN on the work device instead of putting their Internet connection via the VPN (unless you have specific rules on what goes to tunnel etc)

Hi, I have just moved from 2Degree's to My Republic, on a Edge Router X (1.10.10) and suddenly I cant connect to my work network via openVPN.

 

I keep getting an occurrence in the log of this?

I did have to re run the wizard when I set it up and I have not enabled ipsec hardware offloading enabled (cause when I did it advised me there was issues...).  

 

 

 

Any ideas/help appreciated.

You no longer have a public IP address, you'll need to pay for a static IP address.

 

 

GGNAT is the issue.

thanks for the prompt reply, I'm pretty sure I didn't have a static IP with 2degrees (or at least I know I wasn't paying for one)

2Degrees have been rolling out CGNAT over the past few months slowly, maybe you didnt't try to use it until recently.

my cutover to My Republic occurred at 7pm tonight, prior to that with 2Degrees VPN had been working fine since last Wed when I started working from home...

 

Is CGNAT an issue only with OpenVPN, or any VPN solution?  Can't see how this cant be a massive problem for lots of users?

People that need VPN don't go with CGNAT

@nicmair No idea why anyone would switch from a competent ISP to one is less than stellar. If you did a quick search on Geekzone and many other sites you'll find that MyRepublic have terrible support, really dodgy marketing practices (stating they're the quickest ISP when they're actually not etc) and also use CG-NAT by default. You need to buy into their "Gamer" plans to get away from this which in itself is no different from their regular plan - just has a static IP.

 

As you've just changed, I would cancel ASAP and go with a competent provider like Voyager (https://voyager.nz) as they're simply excellent, and include a static IP as a once-off cost. This will also solve your issue with VPN etc.

 

Given their shady background, I am very surprised MyRepublic is still around.

I have an ERL 3 Lite and from that I have attached (via an 8 port switch)

 

1 x GWN7610 via ethernet cable

 

1 x GWN7610 via powerline

 

 

 

I have 1 x GWN7610 via Mesh

 

From my Study, the GWN7610 via ethernet is on the ceiling of the Study. So pretty close.

 

I get excellent wi-fi speed, but every now and then (say once per week, as it did this morning), the wifi was very slow.

 

A trip to fast.com (over wifi) showed a download speed of less than 1Mbps.

 

Through trial and error, I am now re-starting the ERL 3 Lite (not the Access Points) and the speed increases dramatically.

 

I have previously attached a laptop to the 8 port switch, attached to the ERL 3 Lite and I am getting my Spark plan of 100/20.

 

My conclusion, is the ERL 3 Lite affects the wi-fi. I have no idea whether this is correct or not.

 

Running fast.com right now (over wifi) I get:

 

Down: 86 Mbps
Up: 17 Mbps
Latency (unloaded): 6 ms
Latency (Loaded): 70 ms
Client: Albany (Spark)
Server: Paparkura

 

Any thoughts on why my wi-fi may suffer.

well @michealmurfy I would love to be writing that you are wrong and I have had a fantastic return to MyRepublic (I was with them prior and had no issues, but a tempting offer by 2degree's was to good to pass up). but one of the worse customer experiences I have ever had today, made me swap (and I am taking up your recommendation and have signed with Voyager), will not even bother to see if the issue can be resolved now, will just put this experience behind me, well apart from writing a rather nasty complaint, (which I suspect will have zero effect).
