Earbanean: Anyway, I remembered that I have an old D-Link modem/router (DSL-502T) from many years ago.  So I pulled that out and gave it a go.  I didn't have a chance to go through the config thoroughly, but with mostly defaults and my new ID and PWD it did not connect.

So this isn't an exhaustive test, but it now seems I have 2 x Vodafone modem/routers that do connect and 2 x Drayteks and 1 x D-Link that do not.


Are you entering your user name and password into the Vodafone modems or are they auto-provisioned (or already provisioned)?

Did you ever find out what was showing in the radius logs?

If you on purpose enter a wrong password into the Vodafone routers. Does that stop them from working? And try factory resetting the Vodafone routers. Then just plug them in with everything still on the default. If it asks for login details enter an incorrect username and password. If it still connects then your line has port based auth.

I'm entering them in explicitly.

No, I haven't heard back from Vodafone on those.

That's a really good idea.  I'll give that a try when I get home this evening.

In your username, do you not need to put the @vodafone.... afterwards?

As I understand it, that's how it used to be, but now it's just the username.  On the Vodafone supplied modem/router I have just the username and the Draytek that was working for 3 years had just the username.  Anyway, I tried it both ways when debugging on the Draytek, with no luck.

The other thing is that SnapperNet said that the Drayetk should give a meaningful message if the username or password was wrong, but it doesn't do that.  It seems to fail authentication before verifying the ID and password.  Although, I can't say for sure that that's what's actually happening.

Banana?

Sounds like you have done all the troubleshooting steps that you can reasonably take. The Radius logs would be helpful to help you.

 

Can you ask to be moved off the RED network and back to the Chorus network? Would that help?

The Red network ignores anything beyond the @ so you could have Earbanean@xtra.co.nz as the username and it would still work.

The plan is this evening I'll be able to coordinate someone from Vodafone checking the Radius logs at the same time as I have the Draytek modem set up (thanks @Demeter).  Hopefully that will tell a story.

Excellent news.  I wonder what the odds are that nothing will appear in the logs.  cry

Good call. A reverse migration could be worth considering if we can't get it sussed. I can definitely organize that if all else fails.

Earbanean: I've spent between 1 1/2 to 2 hours on hold on that number over the last few weeks.  Man I love this company.





Dude, you're getting direct help for unsupported hardware here, how about being a bit grateful rather than comments like that. 


The guy is paying for the service, after all. It is not like VF is doing him a favour by allowing him to give them money. Whatever happened to 'the customer is king'? Oh, right. This is New Zealand.




Wow thats so far out of context.

We say have a call center of 10 people. They each average 10 minute calls. There are 60 calls a hour. Thats each person and maximum capacity. 
Bob rings up with a 15 minute query, Jim calls up with a 25m long unsupported query.

See where im going now...

If its not supported why should they be under obligation help. There are private consulting companies that you pay to do that. 
Vodafone would be up there with Snap for supporting user issues further than they need to.




At the end of the day if the service is crap and the customer is not happy with it then they can go somewhere else. PERIOD.

Oh my new fridge that I purchased from the US doesn't work properly since it needs a different power supply. Better complain to my power company to get them to fix it and supply me a 110V supply. I'm paying good money for electricity into my house, it's up to my power supplier to ensure everything in my house works and for them to fix it if it doesn't. How is this any different to the Internet?

This thread in my view is what is wrong with the whole view of how Internet service is provided. Master Filter installation for poor internal wiring, Malware/Viruses on computers, Poor / congested Wifi, PC's unable to drive UFB at the speeds the customer ordered. All things completely outside the control of the ISP but they are doing their best to support an unsupported scenario. This is why ISPs supply their own modems since they know they will work to spec. 

The fact that Vodafone is even helping should be congratulated.

My view is the ISP supplied modem works so it's a fault at the customer end. Companies like Geeks on Wheels are the correct place to get issues like these sorted rather than complaining to their service provider. Much like you would pay an electrician to sort out your internal wiring not expect your lines company to sort it. If you are not technically able to get it working, try paying someone more skilled to do so. If they can't then you know the problem is with your modem not the service provider.
