Out of couriousity i am wanting to connect PC directly to Chorus ONT.
reason - i want to know how to troubleshoot in the future and i want to know if my router or other peoples routers have a decent enough cpu to handle there connections.
i have read elseware that you can PPPoe into the ont and gain a connection - are there any how-to guides for this? - should i be using the pppoe dialer built into windows to achieve this.
VLAN10 tagging - do i need to set VLAN10 tagging on my OS anywhere to achieve connection.
i know the ont is not a router - but simply very similar to a modem, but it can not distribute DHCP.
IP address, are there specific ip's that i can set to achieve connection?
maybe someone from Chorus, telecom, vodafone, orcon, snap, has done some testing in there offices and have achieved a direct connection.
i know when the installer installed the ONT he connected directly to configure the SLID for the address, i am now wondering if he telnet'd in to the unit or if there was a web-config page.
chorus dont give any instructions for connecting directly to this unit and it would be handy if your router was dead and you wanted to test your connection.
Im not a noob - i just cant figure it out and need some help.
please dont abuse me and tell me im not suppose to directly connect to the ONT - i know this but i also want to be able to help out friends - workmates in the futute,
