@RossT off the top of my head you'll essentially set up a PPPoE connection on the Edgerouter without VLAN tagging.

@andrewpaul You'll be doing a double-nat (which is something you don't want to do). For Vodafone TV somebody else has already posted a quick how-to Here to get it working on the Edgerouter. As for the landline you may be able to connect the HG659 via the WAN port to your network switch and configure internet access on it (bare in mind also - you don't want to connect anything after the HG659 since you'll double-nat yourself again). Vodafone is a tricky one since you're forced to use their router if you want a landline, if you ditch the landline it makes things a truckload easier.

I need someone to help me please, I'm at my wits end.

 

I've got an EdgeRouter X and I followed the guide here but no joy. I gave it to a couple of guys at work to see if maybe the unit was faulty. One was on My Republic and one was on Vodafone and they both reported amazing throughput. I brought it home and tried again - nothing. Reset, tried every config under the sun - nothing. Rung Spark and they told me the generic settings that you can get off the website. Rang back and asked if there was maybe some issue with my fibre connection, after some umming and ahhing, no, we think it's fine. I'd been having an ongoing issue with the DNS dropping randomly but apparently that's not a fibre issue according to them, probably related to the router.

 

I'm out of ideas. If it works on other ISP's then why won't it work on my Spark fibre connection?

 

Firmware version is the most current (1.9.1) and as I said, I've tried literally everything I can think of. I've tried the settings on here, a mixture of settings, my own settings, no settings, you name it - nothing. And yet when I plug back into the Spark HG659b I get internet. So unbelievably frustrating.

 

Help me Obi Wan, you're my only hope.

Can you reset your router to factory, then follow the guide from this thread then save and share your config file with us. Maybe start a new thread to keep on topic.

Open system in the bottom left.

 

Download backup config file.

 

 

 

Inside the .tar is a config.boot file. This shows all your settings and will help us understand.

It looks similar. Be interested to see if it's my stupidity that's causing the issue here or something more systemic.

Hi all

 

I've finished setting up my EdgeRouter PoE5 using this guide and it worked brilliantly. One thing I want to do now is a port forward for a particular application for a server on my network.

 

I've tried using Firewall / NAT > Port Forwarding window but for some reason the auto firewall just isn't working. I'm on Bigpipe and my ONT is connected to eth0. I selected switch0 as my LAN interface as I assume this would cover any devices on eth2, 3 or 4. I also tried using just eth2 (which my server is directly connected to) but no luck.

 

Can anyone suggest where I might have gone wrong?

@phillw BigPipe use CG-NAT by default which doesn't give your router a publically-routable IP address. Have you got a static IP through them? Your configuration looks right however it is dependant on your interface too. I noticed you've got eth0 as your WAN interface - if you're on UFB and have a PPPoE connection your interface will have to be your PPPoE interface (pppoe0).

 

@Mushdaba sorry, just saw your message. Could you please open the terminal on your Edgerouter and run this?

 

configure
delete service use-dnsmasq disable
set service use-dnsmasq enable
set service dns forwarding name-server 122.56.237.1
set service dns forwarding name-server 210.55.111.1
commit
save

 

Let me know how you get on.

It's all good, thanks for your help.

 

In the end I changed from Spark to 2 Degrees and it worked first time. Seems it wasn't me or the EdgeRouter after all.

I just noticed this, since I've enabled IPv6 my resolv.conf file has 1000's of search bigpipe.co.nz entries in it, does anyone have the same issue or is my router setup messed up some how?
Running v1.9.1.1 firmware.

Not sure how you're getting that. I've taken a look on the 2 routers I have and can't see that at all.
