What is the best way to restart a port without power cycling the DSLAM?Delia HernandezThe most effective way to power cycle a port is through the web interface. You can simply select the port or range of ports and select “Restart” under the Admin drop down menu in System-> ADSL Port Service.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I connect unit to my computer?Delia HernandezIt is not recommended to connect the Data+Power to a computer’s Ethernet interface if the interface is not PoE ready.
Can I manage the VX-1000HDX if connected to a modem from the DSLAM?Delia HernandezNo. The VX-1000HDx does not allow for the remote management of the DSLAM if you are connected to any of the data ports. Remote management of the VX-1000LD/MDi will only be allowed through the Uplink port.
Can voice be transmitted if the Ethernet Extenders are powered off?derekpsneedYes. Voice can still be transmitted through the lines even if the Ethernet Extenders are powered off.
I cannot access the Web Interface using the management IP address set, why?Delia HernandezThe DSLAM does not have web interface capability. Management is done by either a Telnet session, or by console.
What is the command to find the IP address of the Management port and Uplink ports?Delia HernandezThe command to show the IP addresses of the device is below. Please keep in mind that the CLI is case sensitive and you must be in the enable mode.show management all
Does the VX-1000HDx support VLANs?Delia HernandezYes. The VX-1000HDx supports VLANs. Each port can have multiple VLANs enabled. Each VPI/VCI on a single port will allow 1 VLAN ID. If port 1 needs 2 VLAN ID’s, you can create one VLAN ID on 0/35 and another VLAN ID on 0/32. Multiple VLAN packets sent through the port will depend on the modem. Most modems will allow only 1 VLAN to work.
I’m experiencing noise and dropped packets even after switching to Interleave mode. How can I fix this?derekpsneedNoise on the line may cause sync issues and well as dropped/loss packets. If there are no wiring issues between the 2 units and Interleaved has been enabled, you can set dip switch 4 to 9db for better protection against noise on the line. Setting the rate limit to 50/20 (Dip switch 3) may also improve data transfer if the CPE is close to the maximum distance of VDSL
What is the second RJ-45 connection used for?derekpsneedThe VX-VEB160G4 Ethernet Extenders can support 2 separate LANs through CAT3. These ports are also isolated from each other. This feature provides a cost efficient method to extend 2 separate LANs while using one connection. For example, users might want to extend the Management LAN and a Guest LAN to a remote location over one copper pair and prevent the 2 (both) from communicating with each other.
What is the difference between Interleaved mode and Fast mode on dip switch 2? Which one should I choose?derekpsneedMost DSL customers primarily choose Fast mode due to the higher efficiency of data transfers and less frequent ping times. Although Fast mode provides more data throughput, there will be a decreased amount of error correction for each packet that is sent. This mode is ideal for connections with little to no interference on the line or a close loop that does not exceed 5.5 km.Interleaved mode on the other hand, has a slower transfer rate when compared to fast mode allowing it to have a higher capacity for error correction. Interleaved mode increases ping times and possible latency. This reduces speed but in exchange, increases reliability and error detection. Interleaved mode is ideal for poor wiring conditions or in cases where the CPE is close to the max limit of the xDSL loop. This mode also improves VoIP quality as well. Both CO and CPE must mirror each other for this setting.
