Hi Guys - I hear this is the place to ask.

 

 

 

Has anyone got this connection with pfSense as main router?  I believe Im going wrong with VLAN tagging. Ive set in GUI VLAN 10 at priority 0 but starting to read might have to run some commands to get it working.

 

 

 

Can anyone else sheld some light on this before I jump into ssh please?

 

 

 

 

I do and ended up being pretty simple once I worked out what was needed.

 

- Select DHCP under the WAN interface

 

 

- Make sure you have no DNS servers configured under the DNS Server Settings and have the DNS Server Override box checked

 

 

- First thing you need to do is create your new vlan 10 tagged interface under  Interface/ VLANs. Make sure you select the WAN interface as your Parent Interface as shown below

 

 

 

- Update your wan interface to select the vlan 10 interface you created

 

 

This should be it for you to get it up and running. Just make sure the default rule to allow outbound internet connectivity is in place and you should be up and running.

 

 

 

 

This is indeed working, after alot of tinkering pfSense does indeed allow the FibreX VF connection to work, yay no more home hub

Hi Guys

 

 

 

I'm on the FibreX 1000/100 plan and I'm curious as to whether the following is normal:

 

Click to see full size

 

If you go in to the TC4400 web ui (Browse to http://192.168.100.1, Username: admin, Password: password) you can see the signal strength of the cable connection. In my case downstream channel 8 is always really weak, with a high rate of correctable and uncorrectable errors. It doesn't seem to impact performance from my perspective, I'd just like to get an idea of whether this is normal or not.

almost guaranteed EQ related, UPS kept modem/router/switches online here but the cable went offline further up the line (cabinet?) at 12:05am - back up when I got power back in Upper Hutt around 4:40am

Mine's good, Parkway. 

 

I should add, been decent enough since at least 6am, where I even ran a speedtest.

During the EQ our Vodafone TV froze, and the internet was unusable for a few minutes, all came back fine. In Christchurch

received my first bill, mobile on account $10 discount is missing,

 

 

PM'd VF on bookface and he said:

 

"It looks like it has been removed from your account. Would you be able to log onto Customer Zone and re-add it. Once you do let me know and I will add the discount for this month. Regards,"

 

given that I had massive issues last time getting the discount applied I'm not looking forward to this game again, I added it over the phone, via web portal and nothing worked, ended up being applied manually about 8 months ago.

Just got upgraded today and am getting weird speeds all the way from 50-450 down on Ethernet, wonder if it'll sort itself out or not.

Where are you, and are you talking about speed tests or real-world performance?

 

A number of people on "FibreX" - including me - are getting "good" speed tests, but terrible real-world performance.  undecided

I'm in Raumati South on the Kapiti Coast and am just talking Speedtests on the Ookla site. Haven't had it for long enough to really see how it works in normal applications yet I guess :p, hopefully it's good.

Perhaps it is Vodafone shaping traffic...seems to be far more shaping happening than ever before on cable.
