I am also having the same problem. M1 fibre down about 5 days after installation. The "LOS" light on the Black M1 ONT is blinking and I was told the Technician needs to come down and check it.

Is yours the same problem?

If you press the reset button on the ONT, it restores to huawei factory default,
and will not have the M1 settings necessary.

So if you encounter issues, just power on and off the modem,
but do not ever press the reset button.

Had this problem in early July. Not M1's problem in the end. Somehow, OpenNet's cabling was damaged at level 2 of my block. Took them about a week to resolve (M1 send tech, then tech say not their problem, will inform opennet, then opennet send tech).

Do note that when I called M1 up, I called opennet too but opennet refused to admit it's their problem til M1 tech came.

Can find my posting on OpenNet's FB page.

connecting 2 routers with a splitter

Yes, the ONT is configured in bridge mode and only LAN port 1 is enabled. This ONT can also be configured in router mode just that it can't be done at client end.
Can I use a splitter and use the 1 port with 2 wireless routers?

Any recommendation on how I can have 2 wireless routers?

I need a VPN flashed router for my work. The other router for home entertainment.

Any pointers and help will be much appreciated.

Thanks

hi all, sorry I am not very versed in fiber optic technology.

can I check with you guys on the fiber optic cable that is used by M1, to connect the ONT to the modem provided by M1.

Need to know the type of the cable, as there are so many types of fiber optic cable out in the market.

Thanks

Y do you need to know what type of cable is used?

ISP will provide the cable when they come to install the ONT for you.

Because the one they provided is kind of too short.
My modem's current position is not an ideal spot to provide WIFI signal as it is located at the corner of the house and behind a wall.
Most of the signal had been blocked, terminals behind the wall are hardly receiving any WIFI signal.

I wish to buy a longer cable, such that I can place my modem at the other end of the wall, which will definitely improve the WIFI signal due to non-block signal.

For this, I would require to buy a 5m to 10m cable.
