I found the settings in a few places and confirmed via call to business tech support.

 

Confirmed I have the correct user name and password.

 

Business account. Connection is central Auckland, waterfront.

 

 

 

Any help appreciated :)

 

 

 

The supplied HG659 works fine.

DarkShadow:

 

Try DHCP.

 

 

I believe it already is due to the tick for "Use static ..."

 

not being ticked.

 

Unless the setting is hidden elsewhere?

 

 

 

DHCP is enabled on the Lan interface.

In the WAN Service Setup wizard choose "IP over Ethernet" instead of "PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE)".

Personally out of the 2 devices you have i have had much success with the HG659 and had good feedback. Seems to handle fibre bandwidth without any issues. Id suggest the HG659 as your first choice but if the NF4V works thats good, maybe update us with how it goes.

The HG kept dropping port forwarding rules :(

 

Tried adding using both user and admin logins.
