the legendary xiaofan is in WC thread too

thinking to sign up WC because I bought Asus router until now cannot use due to Singtel don't allow to use own router. All other solutions like double NAT also not sure how to set up and not using the router natively.

the topic of network is so tough...
I am not an expert in home networking in reality.

Not so sure which Asus router you have bought but you can use your own router with SingTel.

1) ONT users: set up SingTel VLAN

2) ONR users: set up as AP to avoid double NAT.

Reference: setup guide from Asus/SingTel for RT-AX86U
https://www.singtel.com/content/dam/...file-Guide.pdf

But double NAT is also not a big problem for usual use case.

3) For ONR users, it is also possible to request SingTel to bridge the ONR, then you can use your own router just like the other ISP, no VLAN needed.

In the form/livechat remind them that you want which mode, ONT or ONR so that when they come over to deliver, is already set, can save time.

My WC contract ending in Apr, see what email notice they provide before recontract

Has anybody seen any slight improvement with international traffic recently? My VPN to UK seems a little more stable.

Is WC is using ONT or ONR for their fibre modem ?
I wish to retain router mode and avoid double NAT.
Do I have to request for it or is it ONT by default ?

ONR by default. ask them to set ONT beforehand

Main issue with Whizcomms will be bad international routing courtesy of SingTel.

Other than that, throttling (also courtesy of SingTel) may well depend on the location of the peers.
