Can anyone tell me what settings to use for Spark VDSL?




I've seen this page - but I don't have a spark email address?

You always need to set vlan 10 on VDSL and UFB. It's part of how Chorus expect the VDSL service to function and it's the same for all UFB providers if the ISP asked for a tagged interface.


The reason for vlan tagging is then quality of service can be applied and voice traffic if VoIP was deployed would be carried over a different vlan and with different QoS so that voice was always functional even if you are saturating your broadband connection.
