@CYaBro Doesn't look like my theory worked but now it should be OK to use the web interface of the USG and reconnect it to the internet without the VLAN. It'll then check into the controller again. I'm about to shoot off to the remote site I broke to reconfigure it over WiFi.

 

Edit: Go to your Gateways IP in a web browser, login with your management user / password (configured in your UniFi controller) then drop into Configuration, untick VLAN (if you disabled this - nice it is VLAN aware now) and configure back to PPPoE:

 

 

It'll take ~2mins to apply, and if you had a DHCP lease before it'll also take 30mins to reconnect after this (unless if you block DHCP beforehand). Should be all good from there and will reconnect to the UniFi controller.

 

 

Yup just talked my mum through that! 😂

Well that was a 'Quic' and painless switchover for me on OPNsense, internet was down for maybe 10 seconds!

 

 

Just from my brief testing my CPU overhead has halved when doing a speed test, certainly appreciated for IDS/IPS :)

 

 

 

Great work team!

Had a weird impulse to check my quic account, and saw the DCHP session message. Google it, and low and behold it's been enabled for public use only today, must've been ment to be!

Pity my old USG won't play ball, the thing is in dire need of an upgrade anyway....if it ain't broke, don't fix it, I guess. No internet now, have to migrate it back to PPOE

Of course I try it just when everyone starts using the media server too... Whoops!

Just posting here in case others have issues - sounds like generally though things are going well.

 

I applied a update on my eero router (at that time I didn't know this DHCP malarky had happened LOL!). After the update the main eero (Gateway) couldn't get to the internet no matter what I tried - PPOE (working config at time of reboot/patch), and then DHCP wouldn't work either. 

I know my connection is untagged but for giggles I tried tagged/untagged VLAN10.

I reset all the EEROS and turned all but the gateway off and started a fresh setup on it. I could not get it to work at all however the Quic portal was showing a successful DHCP connection with a fairly recent timestamp.

 

With pressure mounting I resorted to my old faithful Fortigate and that got online no worries with DHCP. 

IPV6 isn't working with the below settings on DHCP but any assistance appreciated. I did look at the config Michael Murphy provided previously however that says this should work if you have a static assignment (which I beleive I don't)

LAN Config here 

 




WAN Config here.

 

 

 

I will this weekend try and re-instate the Eero as I'm curious why it didn't work, just at a time I'm not upsetting the whole family :)

FYI with the USG (as posted here) there is a pretty serious bug where the move in the UniFi portal from PPPoE to DHCP is bugged and will cause massive issues - just don't do it, the USG has offloaded PPPoE anyway.

 

If you do, you risk either exposing every single port on your USG to the internet (if you don't have VLAN tagging enabled) or just bringing down your connection and having to move back. It is actually shockingly bad and got caught out twice today having to drive out to my friends place to manually reconfigure his router too.

@theviper the configuration I posted in your thread here is still correct.

 

There is IA_NA available which should make autoconf just work but I've always had Static IPv6 so no idea how it works outside of that. It's a one-off cost for a Static IPv4 / V6 /56 however.

 

Here's what mine looks like:

 

 

You might need to consult the manual if you don't want to go static however if you want to drop the coin for a Static then the configuration in your thread will get you up and running far easier. The Fortigate almost expects a Static from experience.

Yeah ended up having to move back, even after trying a reset, still didn't want to play ball. Ah well, was worth a shot. Could never see the outside word after trying to enable dhcp, was a bit odd.

I had another try, disabled PPPoE and enabled DHCP. I waited at least 45 minutes, rebooted the router, rebooted the ONT, no dice. The setting is trivial, so I struggle to see how my config is wrong, can't help but feel it's a teething problem with DHCP.

Any ideas?

I got pissed and decided to test further with the family asleep.

 

My finding. The eero won't work with this dual stack malarky.

 

 

 

The quic status page showed a DHCP session but it wouldn't work, there was no message about my router potentially trying both which they do warn us which is great.

 

 

 

Disabled DHCP. Waited 30 mins. All was well again with PPOE.

 

2 hours of my life gone.

This has been beta tested for quite a while with different iterations so I doubt there are teething problems. In your Quic portal under ONT you should hopefully see this set:

 

If it is still PPPoE Relay (from memory) this could mean Chorus have not applied the necessary configuration change to your connection that makes IPoE work. I think on other LFC's like Enable and Northpower it should just work without a problem. If you're also not seeing the portal bring up a DHCP session after dropping PPPoE then there is a problem somewhere either on your end, or with Chorus.

 

Edit: Sorry, was incorrect here. See Quic's reply: https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=194&topicid=311869&page_no=5#3198947

 

Lastly. It's a given but ensure you haven't inadvertently disabled DHCP in the Quic portal :)

 

 

Plenty of people including Beta Testers using either PFSense and OPNSense also.

@theviper You don't need IPoE btw as the eero's should do PPPoE fully offloaded. Per your previous screenshot with the Fortigate it is clear that DHCP does work on your connection.

 

Sounds like eero's are from the same bin as Ubiquiti USG's ;)

This is handy and should be made a sticky post/troubleshooting tip.

Yep I glanced into said bin as I was sent to the dog box for tonight's outage 🤣

 

 

 

Yep peacefully back on PPoE.

Went very smoothly for me on pfsense.
Changed the drop down box on my wan interface from pppoe to dhcp, ok, apply. Done!
Internet was only out for a few seconds. No one even noticed.

My site to site VPN didn't come back up until after a router reboot. But otherwise, no issues.

Still not getting more then 900M/900M on the 2G plan, so I will raise a ticket about that sometime next week. But that's another matter.
