Small question, just recently had VDSL installed, connection seems to be good but the internet light on the modem isn't lit. Nothing major just wondering if it maybe means something. 

Cheers

In the FritzBox admin page (eg 192.168.178.1) go to System > Info Display, and on the drop-down menu, select "Internet connection is active - LED lights up".

Yeah it seems to already be check. To be clear:


  • Power [ON]

  • Internet [OFF]

  • Fixed Line [OFF]

  • WLAN [ON]

  • Info [ON]


Thanks

The Internet light on the Fritz Box is not actually a Internet light per se but instead an internet telephony light (see the little telephone symbol next to it). It is on when you are on a phone call through to Fritz, or when you are receiving a call, but in no way reflects the internet connection itself.
Hope this helps.

Aah, that explains it. Just tested and seems you are correct sir!

Thanks!

Weird thing though, the chorus guy thought the same as me. When he came around to install the VDSL, he looked at the "internet" light and wondered why the internet wasn't working.

I cautiously told him that it seemed to be syncing alright and a quick speedtest seemed to indicate that it was indeed working.

All's working fine though.

The Chorus guys don't have any information about the gear that service providers send out -- their job is to just give you your access, and they will put whatever gear the service provider sends you on the end but they don't get any training on them because it's not Chorus-supplied.
