I have recently moved from Spark UFB to Skinny Gigabit UFB. Previously my Asus RT-AC58U was working fine while on Spark however since moving to Skinny, I haven't had much luck getting it to work.

 

I am aware that the Skinny supplied HG659B is the only officially router by Skinny so I'm not expecting any support from them.

 

The settings below are basically identical to what I configured them when on Spark which should work in theory. I've tried factory resetting it and also upgrading the firmware to the latest version to no avail.

 

I know some users that have got various 3rd party routers working with Skinny UFB so would appreciate some advice since the wireless on the HG659B is pretty crap - seems to max out around 250mbps while my Asus was averaging 700mbps on 5ghz and noticeably more dropouts.

I don't think Skinny requires a tagged WAN interface so just remove the VLAN values on the IPTV page and try again.

 

 

Maybe get rid of the "at spark.co.nz" domain/realm portion of the PPP username too.

Fantastic! That worked. For some reason I was under the assumption all these years that Skinny did VLAN tagging..

 

Thanks a lot.

Hi, Im trying to do something similar with my router but I am stumped as to which credentials do the PPPoE settings take, could you point me in the right direction.

As long as it's a valid string, we don't reject it - eg including HTML Chars, will get you a reject.

You can put anything other than special characters and spaces into the PPPoE username and password and it will work. I left mine as user@spark.co.nz / password

im using an asus ac86u and what i did is just,

 

1. factory reset the router.

 

2. put some random account and password in the setup wizard from router.

 

3. connected.

 

if it's still not connected, turn off the router for like half an hour then turn it on, works for me.
