I am in Maupuia in Wellington and the retention team tells me that fibreX is not available in my area... but the upgrade was done over a month ago.... what gives!?

 

 

Presumably they have yet to fully deploy and test DOCSIS 3.1 in your area following the distributed CMTS upgrade.

And the results...

 

speedtest results

 

 

 

 

Nice

 

 

Are you connecting to your own kit or is there an HG659 in the mix?

 

I'm using their supplied router at this stage.

signed up for gigabit, this is my result

 

 

I get numbers like this with my MacBook Pro. My Windows machine gives me the much higher numbers I posted earlier. I'm not sure why I'm getting poor numbers with my MacBook Pro with ethernet adapter.

 

I also get numbers like that on Wifi (802.11ac), which was to be expected.

There are 2 default user profiles the best one to manage the HG659 is ' Admin ' capital A

 

Enter the username Admin and the password "@"and the last eight digits of your modem serial number. E.g. if your modem serial number is ABC0987654321 your password will be @87654321

Any real world downloads? Steam? A linux torrent?

Have you set WAN as DHCP over tagged UNI (same as fibre optic UFB).

The router I am using TP Link Archer c2 does not have that option, its simply listed as DHCP

Then you are out of luck or will have to get another router that is capable of vlan tagging on the wan interface.
