Hi all,


Am I missing something really obvious, or is there no way of adding a static route to the Huawei B315 ?

There's a FAQ on Spark's website that says the B315 doesn't support static routes so I imagine the Vodafone version would be the same.

iPad Pro 10.5 Wi-Fi 128GB (Space Grey) | iPhone 8 Plus 64GB (Product RED) | HomePod (Space Grey) | Apple TV 4K | Apple TV HD | Apple Watch Series 4 44mm (Space Grey)

Missed that one when I was Google searching; thanks.


Pity; seems to be a fairly fundamental flaw.  Having said that, the router is clearly the lowest-end consumer device available, judging by it's interface and design; so that doesn't entirely surprise me.  Most home setups wouldn't need to do any routing.

Yep the B315 is below basic

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

The capability is probably available in the firmware itself they just haven't bothered to create a web UI for it.



Or that it exists but is hidden i.e. not accessible through navigation menu


Or not available to due to privilege level (only available to super admin level)

I understand that Ultimate Broadband offer static IP.  


Does anyone offer a better router option than the B315?  I see on the Ultimate Broadband website they have a router upgrade option but I cannot find any information as to what this might mean.  They have no sales support during the weekend so cannot ask them.
