Can someone please quickly explain what I need to do to switch my Mikrotik router config from another UFB provider (Voyager) to Spark. APD$500 and a unified comms bill was too good of an offer to turn down...

 

I assume it's almost as simple as switching PPPOE Credentials.

Probably nothing at all - Spark use PPPoE over VLAN 10, same as Voyager, but use port based authentication so any username/password will work, as long as there are no special characters in it.

PPPoE Vlan 10, Please do not enable Internet Detection.

 

 

 

it will make your mikrotik dial DHCP randomly and will cause you a lot of pain.

Took us ages to work out that it's that toggle that makes it randomly dial dhcp... Really annoying "feature"
