Hi,

So I had my @Chorusnz fibre installed yesterday on the same day as my scoping visit. Which I thought a bit odd but I am not complaining.

Anyway I believe I have set up my router correctly. I have Netgear R7000P and followed a guide on here for it from a couple of years ago.

https://m.geekzone.co.nz/Forums/158/Topic/204279

However my connection is not working. I believe the only is working fine. Has green light for power, flashing green light for optical and Lan1 is flashing orange.

On the settings of the router it tells me I am connected but with no internet connection.

Chorus contractor said nothing should have to happen as it will be automatic. However, I am wondering because he installed it on scoping day not my actual install date it may have something to do with this. Does @BigPipeNZ have to do anything on there end to connect me.

Thanks Rod

Given this is in the BigPipe forum, and the OP has contacted BigPipe to resolve, I'm going out on limb and saying BigPipe.

 

Yep, they will need to activate from their end.

 

EDIT: Is your router getting a WAN address at all?

We have had an install at our premise this week as well, trying to connect a USG failed to connect and then ran out of time to contact bigpipe Friday afternoon.  I was planning to run this test today, might be worth a go as well?  I have read a reddit issue someone had with bigpipe and static IP's.  We definitely got one, so wondering if its related, not sure if you ordered one.

I did see that test I was going to try it as well. However, I was going to see if they have to do anything on there end first.

I also do not have static IP address currently.

Been here with my TP-Link Archer VR600. The out of the box configuration is to use the inbuilt DSL modem

 

 

In the advanced settings for the VR600 is a page for Operation Mode. Changed away from DSL modem router to wireless router

 

 

Also make sure the cable from chorus ONT to router is connected to the WAN/LAN port
