Oh I'm very confident no one was as I was the only one home at that time. Even restarted the net.

I've had a couple times it's ran a speed of 90-100Mbps download but that's only been like four to five times of then bang as soon as I jump on a game it's 5Mbps. It's weird...

I don't have everything running like mobile Spotify etc as I turn all that off when I game to help get better speed but that doesn't work.

I don't understand this at all.

When I was with 2degrees on VDSL I was getting mint speeds and I was gaming on all battlefield 1, battlefield 4, GTAV, ESO and flat mate was playing World of Warcraft at the same time and tested speeds whilst gaming and it was by far awesome.

Makes no sense

Definitely something weird happening undecided

 

Myself, I'd grab someone's laptop, cable it (and only it) to the router (Ultra hub), and test download with that ... it might help isolate the problem, viz. if internet access is still crap, then it is the line and/or equipment combination.

 

If no problem, then something is awry downstream with your gear.

Hi everyone, 

 

I just picked up a near new UltraHub on trademe.

 

Looking at the firmware it's showing as:

 

17.1.7875-2461002-20170903121056-e78487b10876a3d2bec68ba0f294d1eaf76c4001

 

Can anyone advise if this is the latest version or I can expect an auto-update at some point? 

Thank you!

BUMP: I'm asking this again because no one answered .. does anyone know the answer? innocent

 

Something I noticed about the new Ultra Hub is that the installation technician simply broke it out of its packaging, and after doing his provisioning thing, et voila we had internet access. With previous, user owned routers, we needed to enter all the settings manually, viz. DNS, static IP addresses, DHCP range, etc etc.
 
Does this mean that these settings are now automatically generated by Vodafone when online via their cable modem, or were the settings already pre-programed into the Hub?  What happens if powered off? ... when I did that all the settings were actually retained, or did they auto-regenerate?.

The Ultra Hub has the settings automatically pushed down to the it after you power it on the first time (or after a factory reset), same as the earlier HG659. All settings are retained after powering it off, including any you make, like port forwarding.

Thanks for that ... however, would the system also do same thing for any substitute router?

 

How about where no router is used, viz. direct cable of modem to computer?

No. All the isps that issue their own ‘manageable’ routers only have device profiles and instruction options for the kit they supply. The routers are shipped with a management URL in the device configuration.

Buy your own and you’re on your own, more or less. Works for some people but not for others - the kit being supplied by Voda and spark is cheap and average only.

It sure makes a technical support desks life a little easier....

Well, yes it does. Something is broken. Either the network feed to your house, or the modem or the gateway or the isolator or the connectors on your house wiring or your house wiring.

 

The only solution is to call, have a ticket raised, and have a tech come out with a test meter,

 

If the tech can't get 200/20 on his test equipment, then there's a problem for him to find and fix.

 

If the tech can get 200/20 on his test equipment, then it's a matter of stepping through your equipment to find out which part is faulty.

 

You can't blame your flatmate's mates, when it's still bad and you're the only person using your connection.

Hi @Vodafone

 

 

 

Is TR069 by default locked on on this device? 

 

Can you please add the option to disable this, as it prevents the router being used on another connection.

 


Thanks,

Are you sure? I am sure TR069 will not stop the modem from working on another ISP

It's the only explaination as to why we can't get fibre connected on another ISP network. 

 

If TR069 is locked on, the router will be looking for an auth server; and won't get any further when it doesn't find one. 
Can't take this router anywhere but Vodafone basically.

I don't think that is correct but I am happy to be corrected
