Recently, I brought a Netcomm NF17ACV router modem from PB tech due to the fact that the Huawei router from spark literally died within two months and instead I brought a Netcomm NF17ACV because according to PB Tech, it is compatible with Spark's Ultra Fast Broadband network. When I spoke to a Spark service center agent, I was sent the following specifications:

 

    Operating Mode : MDI/MDIX

 

    PPP Protocol : PPPoE

 

    PPP Username: user@spark.co.nz

 

    PPP Password: password

 

    PPP Auth Type : PAP

 

    PPP Mode : Always on (Dial on Demand disabled)

 

    Encapsulation : 802.1Q

 

    PCP Marking : 0

 

    VID (or VLAN) : 10

 

    MTU : 1,500 or AUTO

I would like to know how do I make the Netcomm NF17ACV modem or router run on the MDI or MDIX operating mode as specified by Spark and overall the settings provided by Spark which should be implemented into the Netcomm NF17ACV modem or router

The extra line from this was missed.

 

 

Note: You may not be prompted for all values. A specific PPP username and password are not required, but you will not be able to connect if either field is blank.

 

 

 

 

Essentially you may need to create a WAN_VLAN10 interface on the NF16ACV.

 

From there you will add a PPPoE Connection with the username/password and it will be good to go.

Thanks for the help, I have one more inquiry for the PPP username and PPP password, would using address like @xtra.co.nz since my father has a spark account which still uses the xtra.co.nz be fine?

Also will the PPP password be the same as the xtra email password?

use what they show you in the guide as the username and password

 

they use port based authentication so there just needs to be something in there. doesnt matter what it is.

Make sure you have configured a Layer 2 ETH interface, this is also under Advanced Setup down the left hand side menu.

 

 

Connection type should be VlanMux.

In the first screenshot when you are adding a WAN service ptm0/(0_1_1) is the VDSL interface, you need to add it to the eth0/LANx interface.

You need to go into ETH interface down the left hand side. If there is an existing entry, tick Remove and then Apply. Then choose Add to create an ETH interface with Connection type VlanMux.

 

 

Then go back into WAN service down the left hand side and create a new WAN service and choose eth0 from the drop down menu (choosing from atm0, ptm0 and eth0) and proceed as you had before.
