    How to connect ISP directly without router


    Hi all,

    Ubuntu 12.04 64bit/Debian 7.3 64bit

    Network:
    FTTH (Fiber To The Home) Optic Fibre Network
    Static IP
    (new service starting on 3rd March, 2014)

    Cable connection:
    ISP -> Ont -> PC

    Ont (please see attached photo)

    Interface - Internet, without password

    Please advise how to configure /etc/network/interface ?

    Do I need to procure following info from ISP ?
    Code:
    (TYPE: GATEWAY)
    (TYPE: WAN IP)
    (TYPE: BROADCAST)
    BB GATEWAY:
    Thanks in advance.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    The short answer(s) is: maybe, yes, probably, don't know. What is a "BB Gateway"?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    BB Gateway IP is same as Gateway IP

    It is likely that your internet connection with use the PPTP (point-to-point tunnelling protocol) and require your ISPs logon name and password. I recently had a FTTC connection installed, and I didn't use the incredibly crap router the ISP supplied (it didn't work anyway), I just plugged my smoothwall box into the network port and told it to log in.

    Hi,

    It has been confirmed by the new ISP that no logon name and password are required for connecting their server.

    Just confirmed by them that "No manual of ONT to be supplied as no configuration can be set by client’s side" upon my request for ONT manual.
