I'm on VDSL for the moment and switching a connection from Spark to 2 Degrees.
The modem provided by 2Degrees is Fritzbox 7490. Few years old now. I'm a little surprised 2D did not supply a 75xx. Anyway, it works. Back to the topic..
Upload speed using the 7490 is reported by Ookla 2D > 2D a bit lower than my previous Spark connection.
For some perspective I'd like to try my Spark modem with 2D. 2D 3rd party modem setup documented as:
- Username: Your firstname.lastname@example.org
- Password: The password you chose at sign up.
- Encapsulation: PPPoE
- VLAN ID: 10
- VPI: 0
- VCI: 110
The Spark Smart Modem does not connect to the WAN. I'm not sure why. In the Spark modem admin I cannot locate VPI and VCI. Other than that I have the first four items configured. The Spark modem system log looks a bit hopeless and does not contain any DSL events for some reason even though status lights indicate it is definitely attempting to connect.
Any info or suggestions?
