Hi all,

Thought I would see if anyone had any joy and achieved this or if there's someone from Inspirenet who could help.

We currently use InspireNet for our Fibre at the office. Setup is currently:

ONT -> DLINK MODEM (supplied by Inspire) -> Mikrotik RB2011

What I want to try and do (so I can do some VPN implementations and a few other things) is to bypass the Dlink Modem provided by Inspire and pipe the ONT directly into our Mikrotik Router. As Inspire doesn't give out access to the Router its a little hard to test and pen ports etc.

I know that UFB on Inspire is PPPoE with no vlan tagging so shouldn't be too hard to implement.

That mikrotik should plug directly into port 1 on the ONT.

Assuming you know your user/pass for the Inspire account it should be as simple as configuring the Mikrotik with PPPoE (ensure it is adequately firewalled too) and shove it into port 1 of the ONT. There isn't any need for the dlink unless if it is doing VoIP.

Will have to get in touch and see if they'll give me the username and password then. Was hoping it authenticated a different way; insofar as my Mikrotik Router at home with spark is just user: userbb and passwrod: whatever i had in my head at the time.

Inspire require a proper username/password for authentication. 

But yes, once you get that you can get rid of their horrid D-Link thing.

What kind of router is it if you know? Can it be used successfully as a coffee coaster?

Na it's got a horribly big raised logo thing right in the center so your coffee wouldn't even sit flat.

 

The specs on it are fairly alright, it's just the normal terrible firmware from d-link that s the problem.

Just a dlink modem that was supplied at the time we signed up. Nothing really wrong with it at all except that Inspire is the only one who can access and make changes to the configuration.

I've flicked this thread to an Inspire friend of mine.  Unfortunately hes on leave currently but he might be able to check it later.

If you contact Inspire they will be happy to supply your PPPoE username.

On the Mikrotik leave ether1 completely unconfigured. Set-up a PPPoE account under /int pppoe-client using the interface of ether1 and a username and password. Can also set the MRU and MTU to 1492.

Add a basic NAT MASQ rule under /int firewall nat and then you should be pretty much done.

(plug ether1 in to your ONT port 1)
