Howdy peoples, here is bit of a different question for y'all:
I'm subscribed to the ludicrously overpriced (~$300/month) BellAliant FibreOP service in Atlantic Canada and I have been trying for the past week to get into the Alcatel-Lucent ONT to remove the dumb bandwidth cap (QoS policy) so I can actually upload large amounts of data to my VPS in a reasonable timeframe. Before I'm told to "get a better package" or "tough luck m8", or even "you should be thankful for your internet in the first place" [censored], think about this: Google Fibre is 1Gbps up AND down for almost 20% of what I'm paying for 300mbps down and 50 up. I hate their monopoly (and I'm not the only one).
Would anyone here have any prior experience dealing with this ONT (or something similar) to give me some pointers to connect to the darn thing in the first place? The manuals from Alcatel-Lucent have stated to connect to it on Port 1 and set a static IP address on my laptop's ethernet adapter to 192.168.4.1 and I can either telnet or access the web gui via 192.168.4.254. Obviously it didn't work (no surprise to me). I also acquired the OmniPCX software from the same company that apparently is used to connect to it and change settings.
Here are the manuals:
General Manual 1
BTW. I'm not a noob in networking, I am just unfamiliar with Fibre Networks
