Setting Up Maxis FTTH On The Technicolor TG784n v3 Gateway Rev. 2.0. ReviewPosted on 2012-11-08 19:09:46 by Thomas De Maesschalck
When Maxis launched their FTTH (Fibre To The Home) service, they provided me with the Thomson TG784n router. Unfortunately, this router was not only slow, but very unreliable. As it so happened, Maxis was starting to introduce a new router to their service - the Technicolor TG784n v3 router. I managed to get myself one of the new TG784n V3 routers, and I can attest that it loads much faster and seems to be more reliable. It still had the tendency to lock-up "permanently", requiring a hard reset to restore functionality. Hence, I got really familiar at setting up the router.
If you are facing the same problem, then you need to learn how to set up this router for the Maxis FTTH service. You don't want to rely on Maxis' customer service staff. They are often overworked, and unavailable. If you learn how to do it, you can probably solve the router problem faster than it takes them to get you a service report number. So let's get right down to it! In this major revision, we updated various portions of the guide, added two more screenshots as well as a note on the SME Dynamic HSI(GPON)+VOIP option.
