Is there an upper level support peep here?
I'm trying to get help for my elderly Mum and Dad. They've ordered phone and broadband but they're getting messed around.

Their house has already got a ufb termination so it should be open and shut.
In fact after having phone to start with, that's now been disconnected and now they've got nothing.

Massive props to@hio77. My mum and dad are up and running now.

Little note for the Google bots: UFF in Wanganui use port 4 on the ONT for internet.
Telephone is on the right hand socket.

Thanks again,
Much appreciated

So it was connected but had AP in the wrong port? Odd they use port 4 by default

That's really weird.

 

Quite literally I've just drilled into every system and they all say Port 1. (That includes UFF)

At first no, when i drilled into it there was a profiling issue.

 

 

 

Past that, voice circuit was sorted. BB service was also sorted, however yes. port was also incorrect.

All ports have been tried out of frustration.
It's working happily on port 4 so I'm leaving it there 😊

Assuming port 4 is the rhs of course....

Hmm - assuming the ONT is attached to the wall with the usual "cables coming from the bottom" configuration, then port 1 will actually be on the right hand side from your viewing aspect...

 

Port 1 is only on the left if you happen to be looking at the back of the ONT while it's in an upright and horizontal position.





The views expressed by me are not necessarily those of my employer Chorus NZ Ltd

It is on the wall with cables coming from the bottom so it appears my assumptions might have caught up with me.

Let the Google bot note the ONT port numbering is right to left.
Why are all markings so damn small these days?


I'm also glad I was on site to help, the join process is relatively easy but still a challenge for a senior citizen. I'm referring to my parents there BTW 😊
