Udskift din TDC Homebox med et modem.

This Article is in danish as it primary readers should be danish :).

Jeg har i flere år brugt mit eget modem på min TDC ADSL2+ forbindelse (20/2Mbit), i forbindelse med omlægning til en 40/10Mbit forbindelse, blev jeg konverteret til en VDSL2 forbindelse, mit god gamle netgear DM111 ADSL2+ modem, skulle derfor udskiftes til noget som kan forstå VDSL2.

Jeg havde ved et held fået et TDC VDSL2 modem (Askey RTV1800-D79), dette modem understøtter iht. til TDC’s lister både Vectoring, SRA, samt G.INP, hvilket burde sikre driften i langtid.

OBS: jeg har godt nok telefon på mit abb. men jeg bruger det ikke, så disse noter drejer kun om at få internet igennem.

i min naivitet troede jeg at der ikke var forskel på en modem løsning og en router løsning (Homebox), dette viste sig dog at der var stor forskel.

følgende er de settings jeg er bekendt med:

Homebox:
VLAN ID = 101
QOS = 1
VLAN MUX
PTM IPoE

Modem:
VLAN ID = 50
QOS = 0
VLAN MUX
PTM IPoE

Modem settings er fisket ud ved at tilgå http://192.168.1.1 på modemet, Homebox settings er fundet å TDC’s forum.

man kan via modemet hive settings ud, men umiddelbart ikke ændre noget på denne, dette kan man dog workaround ved at redigere den fil man får ud af settings, jeg ligger hermed min orginale fil op samt den redigeret fil som fik min forbindelse til at virke.

 

Original settings fra modem: orginal_setings

De settings jeg kører med idag: working_final_160203

NB: filerne skal ændres så de hedder .conf for at modemet gider at æde dem.

God fornøjelse med at få det til at spille med netop dit modem/router 🙂

den primære ændring er:

Orginal:

<WANIPConnection instance=”1″>
<Enable>TRUE</Enable>
<ConnectionType>IP_Bridged</ConnectionType>
<Name>br_0_1_1</Name>
<ExternalIPAddress notification=”2″>0.0.0.0</ExternalIPAddress>
<X_BROADCOM_COM_IfName>ptm0.1</X_BROADCOM_COM_IfName>
<X_BROADCOM_COM_ConnectionId>1</X_BROADCOM_COM_ConnectionId>
<PortMappingNumberOfEntries>0</PortMappingNumberOfEntries>
</WANIPConnection>

Modificeret version:

<WANIPConnection instance=”1″>
<Enable>TRUE</Enable>
<ConnectionType>IP_Bridged</ConnectionType>
<Name>br_0_1_1</Name>
<ExternalIPAddress notification=”2″>0.0.0.0</ExternalIPAddress>
<X_BROADCOM_COM_IfName>ptm0.1</X_BROADCOM_COM_IfName>
<X_BROADCOM_COM_ConnectionId>1</X_BROADCOM_COM_ConnectionId>
<X_BROADCOM_COM_VlanMux8021p>1</X_BROADCOM_COM_VlanMux8021p>
<X_BROADCOM_COM_VlanMuxID>101</X_BROADCOM_COM_VlanMuxID>
<PortMappingNumberOfEntries>0</PortMappingNumberOfEntries>
</WANIPConnection>

Jeg vil sandsynligvis skrive mere her ved lejlighed, når jeg får mere tid til at kigge på settings.

How do I shut down a workstation via Remote Desktop?

depending on the setup of your windows try the 2 solutions:

1:
Ctrl+Alt+End This should be the same as Ctrl+Alt+Del and consequently takes you to a dialog where you can do various system-type things, among them logging off and shutting down.

2:
Another trick is to click on the desktop and press Alt+F4. This will call up the shutdown dialog, where you get the usual shutdown options like “Shut down”, “Shut down without installing updates”, “Restart”, “Stand by”, and “Hibernate”.

The philosophy of naming computers

I always liked the idea of having a naming scheme for naming computers, from the days when i worked at the university they gave servers, names after planets like Uranus and Neptune, when i later started setting up computers at home i went on with my own naming scheme i selected the Norse mythology, later on i started using the different elements for machines outside my network. i seen people using many different naming schemes like, movie stars, diary products.

it gives the machines something personal meaning and it’s funny when people ask why they are named the way they are, no matter what, it’s a good ice breaker :).

Even the laptop I’m using for writing this post is named Njord :).

Here’s a list of possible naming schemes that i like:

if you want more possible naming schemes take a look at namingschemes.com there should be a scheme for everybody :).

Happy naming.
