Can you change the SSID? Is the default router password the same as the wifi password provided?

 

 

Home network > WLAN Settings > WLAN Encryption

 

 

Comes up with username as vodafone. Is this correct?

 

Where do I find the router password in the quick guide?

 

 

Google is your friend here and very helpful guide on the main VodafoneNZ site in the help section for HG659

 

 

Thank you very much! Wasn't home when the device was installed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you have a HG659 provided by vodafone please use the following to login

 

standard access

 

Username - vodafone

 

password -vodafoneAdmin access - Admin ( with capital A ) and password is @ and last 8 digits of the of the serial. like @12345678

Was there any additional tweaking you had to do to get the R7000 to work with the modem? I haven't requested keeping a static IP so I assume if I want to keep using my R7000 I change the setting for 'Internet IP Address' from the existing static address to 'Get Dynamically from ISP'

 

Any other changes? Did you have to configure VLAN Tagging?

 

 

Yes, under Advanced Settings - VLAN/Bridge Settings:-

... I understand you can hit 200/20 within NZ but for offshore for the video consultations she will get around 17-19 mbps depending on the US server and 7-9 mbps Upstream on the 100/10 Cable connection so my question is would she see much more (real world) improvement on the new fibrex 200/20 plan

 

<snip>

 

 

I have just upgraded from HFC cable 100/10 to 200/20Mbps.

 

BEFORE the upgrade I was getting speeds of 100/8Mbps to a Los Angeles server - 17-19Mbps sounds ridiculously slow.

 

AFTER the upgrade I get 200/20 to all NZ cities, and better than 150/10 to Sydney, Melbourne, and LA.

 

Latency has also improved.

 

Here is Wellington at 8pm:

 

 

and Los Angeles at 8pm:

 

 

Upgrade!  smile

The connection seems to keep getting progressively faster. Remember when 9 PM used to spell certain disaster for performance? Well...

Thats really good to see its working well. there is always loss on speed on the MAC layer so looks like the PC u are using the MAC layer is very efficient. like 93% efficient which is really really good. cool

Yup - I've got my R7000 working with the TC4400, switching from the static IP to dynamic assigned and enabling the VLAN tagging.

 

The wireless speeds seem to be a bit down on the HG659 though - best I've had with the R7000 via wireless is 120/20

Just noticed she was using the old Cisco DCP3008 modem provided years ago ( Guess Vodafone forgot to upgrade ) however i did hear the upgrade after that one was pretty average

Your problem is the server chosen:

 

Atlantic Metro is ridiculously slow:



Web NX is ridiculously fast:

 

Both tests were taken within minutes of each other on a 200/20 connection.
