Won't bore you with the details of the issues prior re physically connecting fibre to the house. Suffice to say if you stuck a tent above it then you'd have a circus.
Today the tech arrived ( as favour as the others had stuffed up royally) and joined the fibre outside the property then looked aghast when I gave him the router my ISP had supplied. His comment was " we don't normally install said ISP's modems"...He plugged it all up and then claimed it wasn't configured. 30 minutes later with him hummin and hawwing I got my ISP on the phone and they didn't do anything but the modem came online. Connection dropped, then we powered down and it came online again...After 15 minutes it seemed to be working at which point the tech did a runner. Literally..Sign here. See ya.
Within 10 minutes it had lost connection again. Was on phone to ISP ( who as ever was excellent ) for about 45 minutes and he said " they hadn't actually done much at their end ". Eventually reset the modem ( Netcomm Wirleless N300 ) back to factory settings and it's been online for roughly 4 hours after we manually configured it all. Fingers crossed.
Under speedtest ping is 7ms and down is roughly 205 and up is roughly 100 so speeds are fabulous. I've downloaded the manual and noticed that the WWW light is described as 'off or flashing' , flashing meaning it's downloading information...The WAN light is described as either "on or off". However the WAN light isn't on solid and spends its' time flashing at a similar rate to a green light on the ONT which it is connected to.
Does this mean anything in particular or is all correct?
Thanks for your help
