Gone live with Plusnet Unlimited Fibre today...and would like some advice if possible?
Engineer arrived, sorted out the faceplate, plugged everything in...
- 'red' cable' provided faulty. no problem, i have numerous ethernet cables... Replaced from my own batch, working.
After waiting around 30mins i thought id give it a whirl via ethernet.
- Port 1 and Port 2 on the NEW router dont work (well, P1 worked for a couple of mins then died). Hmm.
Tested internet from Netbook to Port 3, seemed to be working. Moved router, and modem to 'new home'. all came back online ok (of course ive probably fluffed up the training and likely to lose some speed for now...if someone could clarify?)
Unplugged Netbook, and connected powerline adapter to Port 3...
- Tried to VNC from Netbook (downstairs, on Powerline) to Desktop (upstairs, on Powerline) but wouldnt connect (no problem with O2 TG585v7 before transfer) RESOLVED
Checked the firewall on member centre and its set to off. Applied a static IP to the desktop...even tried adding the VNC in G&A Sharing (even though i didnt need to on the old O2 router) - no joy
Download test.... test files worked ok, came at 4.4 (still in training atm)
- Natcheck failure with a port which i've replicated in G&A Sharing from my old O2 router for the BitTorrent protocol. RESOLVED
Cant test xbox (as i hard wire it) as ive no spare working port atm. :-/
Would appreciate some feedback from the PlusNet troops, or the local resident boffins. Thanks. :'(
