So no option for having backup either, like with old copper ones... Oh well, then there is just a hope ONT will not pack up.
Its mainly the mains power units that have been failing, so having a spare compatible PSU may be prudent.
@Keith_Beddoe good shout! Once I'll get my one I'll check what PSU is needed and what I got in my storage 😉
Just to update, It was straight forward. Unplug network, reboot pfsense, plug network from ONT and it worked. Tere is but, atm I'm getting(down/up) ~530/105Mbps. When trying BT Smart HUB2 #920/50Mbps. Any idea what I could try to get SG-3100 to runn #900Mbps
You would need to ask that on a pfsense forum. Possibly the hardware isn't capable of higher speeds.
Thank you. I'll give it a go as well, thought that I will ask here, just in case any of sg-3100 users here came across smth similar.
The problem is PPPoE is single threaded on BSD and a pfSense firewall with a slow cpu isn't going to achieve gigabit PPPoE throughput. If you want to use pfSense for gigabit speeds then you will need a machine with a faster cpu like an i3-6100.
The advertised 2.44Gbps does not relate to PPPoE throughput - I can't see any reference to the PPPoE performance. Rather than look at more expensive Netgate appliances you would be better off just buying a cheap second hand SFF desktop PC such as the HP ProDesk 600 G3 SFF with i5-7500 for £100 (plus a cheap Intel dual core network card) and install pfSense yourself.
