Yeah that's the one I used last time (to enable IPv6). It doesn't work anymore.

I checked the PLDT Fibr hacking github and apparently the new way to get admin access is to open the modem up, plug in a serial to USB converter and PuTTy into the Linux OS.

Internet is slow. Getting just 5Mbps most of the day.
Our optical status seems ok, getting -22dBm on the RX.

Time to call 171 again...

Lucked out just this one time, but leecher status lol

bit of a long story, so I woke up a few day ago with no internet connection, checked the fibr router and the los indicator was flashing red. turned it off and on and tried different stuff to try and get it to work and nothing. checked the cables and found this.



I guess my cat bit the fiber optic cable, checked some stores and none sold that cable, so for a last resort I just taped up the holes figuring maybe if I can stop light from outside leaking in it would fix it, also instead of plugging that end into the wall, I plugged it into the router, that way the router would sit on top of the damaged part of the cable blocking more light. it was so stupid I didn't think it would work but it actually did work, got internet back.

I still ended up buying a replacement cable from lazada because the setup felt janky and I was afraid it would fail soon. one reviewer oddly enough had a similar problem with their cat chewing on the cable and said the lazada cable was compatible with pldt fibr, so I bought that, got it, plugged it in aaand nothing, los was flashing red, tried to un plug and re plug several times and it wouldn't work, went back to the chewed cable and it took me a couple of tries, the last attempt had me straigthening out the kinks on the cable and gently inserting to the router, finally got it to work again.

now I'm scared of touching the router, I'm still using the chewed up cable and was wondering if and where I can get a replacement

^^How about this?

https://www.facebook.com/pldthomefibrpatchcord/
I didn't realize there were different types of patch cords until our modem got a forced upgrade and part of the instructions was that we should replace our yellow patch cable with the blue patch cable that came with the new modem.

Look for an SC-SC Single Mode, Simplex patch cable...
they come in lengths of 1m, 2m and 3 meters
you may get the length that's fit for your needs so that it won't dangle down and attract your cat.

Speedbost again?

Looks like both globe and pldt are capitalizing on their highway-robbery pricing for their 'prepaid broadband', making it seem 'economical' -- since many will only deploy this on temporary basis
