It’s an iPad 5th gen. Rebooted and now getting 350 and 246 on iPhone 6s  Thanks. So far so good with it. Was attempting to get my dsl 4320 connected as a gateway/AP but doesn’t seem to connect to internet via lan on the spark modem

Thanks for the help. I noticed the ont has an antenna on it. Is there wifi from the ont in the future?

You must have one of the new Chorus ONT's there.

 

 

 

At this stage, Chorus aren't offering that as a service, so providers can't consume it.

 

In terms of service it would offer though, the smart modem is a fair bit better :)

Like bandwidth 20/40/80, connection type N/AC etc

 

 

 

Spark FON is still broadcasting but I think you said .13 fixes that.

I'm still not sure what your asking for here.

 

a modem can't change the maximum capabilities of a client...

Sorry, not making myself clear.

 

 

 

Just to show those stats for the client. So you can see how it is connecting and what speed it is capable of (N vs ac wave 1 or wave 2 etc) and if anything is still on old a/b/g type thing.

v6.00.13 is on the way out.

 

 

 

This primarily Simply fixes a few issues with UPnP that were causing issues with a popular game title.

Okay, for those having the FON issue.

 

 

 

I've just had confirmed the gotcha around it, took getting in a fresh device to confirm.

 

the 06.00.06 firmware the first batch came with, has this enabled, it was removed in 06.00.07 firmware (however will still be active without a factory reset.)

 

 

 

Band steering is also the same case.

 

We are working with our shipping provider to upgrade all the existing stock, but this will affect a limited volume of stock still unfortunately.

we had an issue there so switched back to hg659b for replacements for a bit.

 

replacing with 659bs isnt anything too wrong though. they work just aswell, just dont have the awesome wifi of these.
