trig42,

Yes I do have ADSL. UFB will not be an issue where I am as the company that is laying it down has just indicated that where we are is not in the plans for next 18 months.

We send a Chorus tech over to install a master filter, this get's installed in your house, from there once the order is marked as completed we switch your line over to VDSL. No digging, just maybe running a new lead for your VDSL modem :)


It's a tidy job though, nobody will notice.

Is it possible to bridge the VDSL modem?

I run an OpenWRT based firewall and want the IP address to terminate their rather than on the Telecom supplied modem.




Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

Yes, I am doing this right now with the Thomson modem supplied using a Mikrotik Routerboard.

You can set it up through a wizard on the Thomson.

Excellent; that's something that annoys me about many ISP-supplied modems so it's good to see that there's an easily-accessible option.

Now to convince Chorus to roll out VDSL where I am...

Ooh, quick caveat - the firmware I am using was pre-release... I hope this feature (the wizard) stayed in for the final revision... Michael, you know if that's the case?

I am bridging the TG589vn v2 -- no problem at all using the wizard. I'm using it with an AirPort Extreme bridged.

Have signed for this today - time set up for install next Monday.

Already have master filter and current set up is a Draytek Vigor 120 bridged to an Apple TimeCapsule (most recent vertical version).

Can I assume from comments from you N that it should be easy to just swap out the Vigor 120 with the new Thomson modem set up into bridge mode?

Yes, that is exactly what I did (I had a Draytek before). The TG589vn is ADSL and VDSL but it can't run ADSL in bridged mode, so you will need to bridge it once your VDSL is up.

Well, I had no issues doing it... The wizard was simple and I accepted all the defaults (as far as I remember)

We're all booked in here also. Was going to upgrade the master splitter myself, but it's the same charge even if there's already a compatible xDSL master splitter already installed.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Not sure, I need to wait for my VDSL >.< but from what I've seen it has stayed.

wow i can get VDSL!!! (duh ... despite chorus saying i can't: thanks vexxxboy!)

now one question: i only want VDSL because my ADSL is a bit congested at peak hours, the PING is not great at peak hours (erm what i mean is there is a delay after you click on a link say facebook or youtube or anything for that matter), everything is slower at peak hours

will moving from Telecom ADSL -> VDSL fix that?

yes my modem stats are perfect

also why does one need to "optimize" their VDSL router?
