it's a fairly common request here to ask how to setup a certain modem or router for Bigpipe goodness.

 

 

 

So we've (finally!) gotten around to pulling together guides for the most popular devices on Bigpipe.

 

 

 

check them out here:   http://pages.bigpipe.co.nz/modem-router-setup-guides/

 

 

 

(feedback welcome, of course)

Question regarding using the Draytek Vigor 130 bridged to another device on Bigpipe VDSL:

 

I see your guide uses the PPPoE client and the passthrough option/feature but the guide from Snappernet who distribute Draytek in NZ uses MPoA/IPoE

 

http://pages.bigpipe.co.nz/draytek-vigor130-vdsl2adsl22-modem-setup-guide-vdsl/

 

http://downloads.snappernet.co.nz/draytek/dv130/Draytek%20DV130%20Chorus%20VDSL%20Bridged%20Sample%20Configuration.pdf

 

Do both options work? Which is better?

If you want the modem to terminate the PPPoE, do it the first way. If you want the router after the modem to terminate PPPoE, do it the second way. Either will be fine, depends on what you want.

Will you be hosting a "community" repository of guides submitted by the people of say, Geekzone.

 

 

 

To get a wider coverage of devices people use?

I'm planning on hooking up with Bigpipe for UFB when we move back to our house in April.

 

Will be using a Netgear D7000. I assume these will work OK. Anyone got one?

That does PPOE so you'll be fine.

This is something I would be keen on seeing, and would happily contribute based on my own setup (Untangle server with dual-NIC's).

Nice idea.  

 

I'll have a chat with the team and see if that's something we can implement.

 

(maybe simplest solution for now is to post your 'guide' in a new geekzone thread in the Bigpipe subforum, and then we can link to it from our 'modem guides' page.)

 

If we like it, we'll probably shower cool free stuff upon you.

Hey, where's the dedicated VDSL jack-point for your Draytek guild? @sbiddle won't be pleased :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

He's gone very quiet recently now that many other ISPs have also introduced non-mandatory filter installs for naked VDSL.

Apologies in advance for formatting. Not my guides, just breaking out the copy pasta.

 

630b:

 

Open your Web Browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox)

 

In the address bar, type 192.168.1.254

 

Press Enter

 

Enter your Modem Username (the default is admin)

 

Enter your Modem Password (the default is admin)

 

Click Basic from the left.

 

Click Link Interface from the left. Image

 

Ensure the Fibre tab is selected from the top.

 

Change VLAN ID to -1

 

Once you have made the required changes, click Submit.

 

 

 

HG659 differs depending on where it came from.

 

UFB (Vodafone)

 

Before you begin, restore your router to factory default, either by holding the small reset button on the back for 6 seconds or more, or through the Maintain, Device Management, Factory Restore menu.

 

 

 

     

  1. Plug the blue WAN port on the back of the router to the GE1 port on the ONT on the wall. The WAN light on the router should be solid green, and the LAN1 light on the ONT should be green or orange. If this doesn’t happen, please get in contact with us.
  2. Connect your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router
  3. Log in to the router at http://192.168.1.1 The default username is Admin. The password may be VF-NZhg659, or if that doesn’t work, try @[last eight digits of the serial number], so if the last eight digits of the serial number is 12345678, then your password may be @12345678 (Please note these are case sensitive).
  4. After you have logged in, click Internet at the top bar, then click Internet Settings on the left side.
  5. You will find a few internet settings on this page. Please find the one with Access Type Ethernet and click the Edit button. If you can’t find it please click New WAN connection at the bottom of the screen.
  6. Please edit the settings as follows:

 

Name: Bigpipe UFB

 

Service type: Internet

 

Access Type (if present): Ethernet uplink

 

Connection Type: IP routing (PPP)

 

Enable VLAN: unticked

 

Internet account: Bigpipe

 

Internet password: Bigpipe

 

     

  1. Click Save
  2. Click Restart PPPoE

 

9. The IPv4 status should now say Connected and your internet should work!

 

 

 

UFB (Spark)
