when I go to the ethernet settings, i can tick the set DNS - but it will not save as I need to put the username also???

I tried putting my Spark wireless internet SIM into a D-Link DWR-921. Shortly afterwards, when I realised the futility of my actions, I put it back in the Huawei B315s & got back online. The SIM cards are locked to Spark-provided modems.

 

But if you'd like an almost new D-Link DWR-921 to make sure of this, I happen to have one right here.

Looks like the B618 can do DNS change.

Yep, it's firmware is a little more feature rich :)

Yes, spark do supply a B618, on the larger plans.

 

 

 

i understand it to be possible to upfront get the B618, but I've heard otherwise from end users - Haven't had a chance to run down the product folk and get the clear outcome.

 

 

 

You are more than welcome to use any router you want, you must use our modem however, and thus you will have to double nat/dmz.

Oh really?

So is the B618 performance any better than the B315? Is there enough hardware grunt to overcome the lame firmware & actually make a worthwhile difference?

Asking because I've got a plan that involves my current B315, the Matamata Spark store & a new B618. I haven't told them yet, it'll be a surprise.

yes definitely better than B315. my DL doubles, my UL doubles. 

 

it used to be just 3 bar signal out of 5. with this modem/router it is 5 out of 5.

 

 

 

Good Luck! 

 

 

 

I think the only way to do is to apply static IP, which I believed $15/month.

i find it interesting that your bars changed.

 

 

 

it's completely an expected result that speed increaes :) on paper your speed could jump 4x if i'm recalling the specs right..

Is there another login that provides more access? My Vodafone Huawei HG556a had 2 or 3 levels of logins.
