Is there a manual for this available?

Im mostly curious on what the types of lights mean

example:

When using a Fritxbox into LAN1, LAN 1 light is green

When using a MAKO into LAN1, LAN 1 light is amber  

thanks.

Typically the LED colour indicates link speed. In a Gigabit device, green would indicate a 1Gbps link speed and amber a 100Mbps or lower link speed. In a FastEthernet device, green would be 100Mbps and amber would be 10Mbps. So I suggest in this case, the Fritz has a gigabit port, and the Mako only a FE port, thus the difference.

thanks, do you have any documentation for that i can pass on?

it seems like the mako is not negotiating with the ONT correctly if what you said above is correct, as its fast ethernet not gigabit.

Our ONT is the Alcatel-Lucent I-240G-R, which I believe is the same as Chorus are using...

Power LED
Off - There is no power to the ONT
Red - ONT is operating on battery (only applies if you have the External Battery Module)
Green - Power is working normally
Green Flashing - ONT is booting

Optical LED
Off - ONT has been disabled
Red - Connection has been lost to the Fibre Network
Green - ONT is online
Green Flashing - There is activity on the Fibre Network

Alarm LED
Off - ONT has no alarms, and you have no devices connected
Red - There is a fault on the ONT
Green - ONT is working correctly

LAN Port LED
Off - No Active Service on this Port
Orange - There is a 1Gbps device detected on the Port
Orange Flashing - There is 1Gbps data activity detected on the Port
Green - There is a 10/100Mbps device detected on the Port
Green Flashing - There is 10/100Mbps data activity detected on the Port

Update LED
Off - This is the normal operating state
Red - ONT failed to download firmware
Green - ONT is successfully downloading firmware

hmm, that seems opposite to what im seeing,

Mako has no Gigabit, but its orange

Fritzbox does have gigabit, but its green.

i will see if i can find out what the ONT model is

That would make more sense, or at least, that's more in line with what the likes of Cisco use, so consistency is good lol.

It doesn't explain why the OP seems to be getting the opposite though :x

This is going a little off-topic, I apologise, but - I assume you're talking about a Catalyst 2960 switch? These use solid green for 100Mbps and blinking green for gigabit on the SPEED LED mode. oh, and off is 10Mbps.. go figure. Cisco products that use off/green/amber (such as the ASA series) typically (because there are certainly some exceptions) use Green to indicate 10/100 and Amber for Gbps. Some manufacturers doe the opposite. Go go gadget standardisation.

Sorry after you said that i double checked, i wrote those down the wrong way, what you have said it correct, Amber is Gigabit, Green is 10/100

I dont think theres any issue with the ONT and the Mako in terms of the speed negotiation

There isn't a manual in the boxes I get for the ONTs. If I see any I will post up for any other users that might find it useful.
