Chorus ONT's are not user configurable and the info on them is considered to be for identification purposes only.





Perpetually undecided.

I think that's a no go area.

 

ONT is Chorus property, they won't want people messing with it.

*idly wonders if they have a serial or jtag port*





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

I think the QR code is for a future customer information website that hasn't been built yet. Would be helpful when there are multiple ONTs by different providers in a house with an unbundled fibre network.

There simply isn't anything interesting to see as everything is configured out of band either via TR069 or the Chorus backend provisioning system.

Probably part of the reason why you can't login to the ONT - if you break something it would be costly to fix.

Much like the person who posted on here a few weeks ago after logging into their (from memory) Huawei ONT and breaking it so had no Internet.

It's a cut down linux switch with two ATAs and not much else. As has already been said it's a black box which is not end-user configurable.

 

If you want to learn more then work at Chorus or another LFC and join their network engineering team. Brent is a top fella from Chorus who use Alcatel Lucent gear are 50/50 split between Auckland and Wellington. Huawei who look after UFF and Enable have the majority of their engineers based in Auckland but there are a few network architects who work directly for UFF in Hamilton and Enable in Christchurch. Northpower use Ericsson gear and are all based up in Whangarei.

 

Other than that leave it alone and DFAWI

Thanks, I'll give you the $20 later.

As above, please don't mess with it. Nothing interesting in there, no ability to change the service information, etc.
It's been pen tested by a 3rd party to prove all of that.

 

Picking up a ubiquity and/or mikrotik switch and fiddling with them will give you more benefit/info/learning.
Plenty of people here to help you with those devices
