This is what you should do.

But if you insist on finding something else, these are Sparks fibre settings.

I use Spark.  And I need just one.  As Spark need VLAN Tagging and stuff to be able to connect to the Internet on Fibre, I can't just plug it into the ONT.

 

 

Yes, you can. Go to the network card settings on your computer, and switch on the VLAN tagging option. The setting is at different places for different brands so you might need to Google it. Some brands may require you download an additional utility.

Then the trademe link I posted or any other Spark HG630b will work fine.

Cheap switches are not managed, won't do VLAN tagging, etc.

 

HTH

 

 

 

 

Not true, I've got a TP Link 24 port gigabit switch that does VLAN tagging and other managed features for ~$160.

Argueably not a cheap switch.

not much more than a non managed 24 porter is. There are also around $100 8 ports that will do vlan and aggrigation as well.

Go a buy a HG659, Factory reset it and plug the blue port into the ONT GIGA1 port with the yellow cable provided.

 

Take my suggestion and run with it, You wont get a better one.

Plugging your PC directly into the ONT is a bad idea from a security perspective, unless you know exactly what you're doing.

Or if you want a router that is just a router, and doesn't have Wifi or anything else included with it. Then get a Ubiquity Edge Router Lite. They can do gigabit fibre speeds easily.

 

[edited to add]

 

Yes they are reliable as well. Uptime on my ERL is currently 1 year and 4 months. In otherwords I last restarted it 1 year and 4 months ago. And im pretty sure the reason for restarting it was to update the firmware.

No. Switch is only Switch that can connect Devices togather. router does the same thing but connects you to the inernet and much more. But Router can act like a switch too in the settings
