You'll probably experience that if you disabled DHCP on the Technicolor.I have exactly the same setup and access the Technicolor via Wi-Fi.


Thanks have reset Technicolor and this has solved my problem.

I have a similar setup with my modem (Technicolor) bridged to an AirPort Time Capsule (router) and also want to access stats and the modem interface even though DHCP is turned off off on the modem. To do so you'll just need to create a connection with a manually assigned IP address In Mac OS X System Preferences > Network you'll should add a new service (Ethernet or Wiresless) using the + buttom bottom left and assign a manual IP address for your Mac in the range 192.168.1.x. See screen capture below where I've chosen 192.168.1.50. Each time you want to access the modem it's then just a simple case of temporarily making your regular (DHCP) connection 'inactive' and make this 'direct' connection to the modem temporarily 'active'


Thanks for this - have got a solution as above but wonder what the advantage is of your approach which has the DHCP turned off on the Technicolor?


Running DHCP on the Technicolor does not mean you will have two DHCP servers on your network. It only affects the WAN port of your router.


OK - a little distracted here in Wellington currently so thinking my network speed is the least of my problems! Good to just have a network still working.

jay63: 

Number of bearers: 1
Bearer 0 DS/US
INP [DMT symbols]: 0.00/1.50
Delay [ms]: 9.00/15.00
Depth []: 171/0.00
R: 6/0

Would really appreciate if someone could help me (us) understand DLM profile and why the profile appears to differ between upstream and downstream. My download speed has improved slightly and  upload speed remained consistent over the 8 days .  However, latency has creeped up from 20ms originally to around 28ms now.  Very few errors other than FEC.  Thanks much.

I'm also mt eden on VDSL - you're lucky to be in one of the VDSL pockets as there seems to be a big void for VDSL coverage around the centre.

Your upload speed hasn't changed because it's pretty much at the max already.

The different delays are interesting - I'm assuming they reflect interleaving delays, but I don't think I've seen them (or INP) being different for DS\US like that on the fritzbox. Would be interested to know why too - maybe the modem just reports them in a different way.

Regarding DLM profile asnd error rates, we've sort've figured in the VDSL thread on snap forum that re-syncs are a big(ger) issue as long as your CRC rate is decent (limit seems to be somewhere around 10 per minute)  So try avoid any and all resyncs.  Otherwise just leave it all and if your CRC errors are low, DLM profile and latency should improve.

As I already have an ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+/VDSL/VDSL2 compatible master splitter installed, why does a chorus tech have to come to my house? I would like VDSL but I can't be home when they're available to come out (incl. Saturdays) as work is absolute manic at the moment.. I had a quick talk to someone at Telecom and they said that at the moment a chorus tech has to be sent out because that's how its ordered - I know the splitter is installed fine as I did it myself (electrician with experience) - can anyone at Telecom here perhaps have some input into allowing it to go ahead without a visit?? I'm still willing to pay the fees..

I'm sorry, the rep was accurate... This is the process. I sympathise with your situation but it would require using non-standard processes with an increased chance of things going wrong. At the moment at least, all VDSL installs require a visit by Chorus.

My Telecom VDSL was setup on Saturday. I was expecting a chorus tech to come out but I just had a telehone call from the tech who was at the Courtney Place exchange. I had it all set up at my end so he just did what ever he had to do there and asked me to swap modems over then called me back to say it all looked OK. It was so the tech didn't visit.

Leave a dear Chorus note at the door advising wiring work is all done, please test to demarc only, and that you will accept responsibility if there are any internal wiring issues.




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.

joutei: Hey guys, quick question.

I have a BT jack for my deticated dsl.
Does using a filter on the BT jack degrade performance on vdsl ?



Hi guys, long time reader first time poster. I myself have a related question to joutei's...

I had VDSL installed yesterday and speeds are what are expected so far but tech installed splitter with ADSL/BT jack plate to which I have to use an ADSL cable to connect to supplied Telecom VDSL modem rather than the supplied RJ45 cable. By not having an RJ45 jack/splitter installed and not using supplied RJ45 cable will this be detrimental for VDSL speeds? 

I rang the BBHD but couldn't give me an answer :(

No. Those are just methods of connection when it comes to POTS. It still only uses 2 cores whether its BT or RJ45 in this situation. (though one thing you could  try, if your vdsl isn't still being set up and you're having problems, is replacing the BT cable you have)

Yeahhhhhhh I dunno if that'd work. I've had plenty of dealings with chorus in my job including fixing their muckups or completing their work because they are incapable of picking up a spade or going under a house. I'm not sure it's worth the risk. Even if I did *very* naughtily take time off work who's to say they will turn up when it's booked - just been reading some threads :o

your connection is fine, you are on DLM-1 which is the best you can get, the red logs look like firewall blocking some connections.

Would you mind to tell us how to interpret those modem stats to tell which DLM profile we are on? Thanks!
