[clug] [OT] NBN migration & ISPs

I'm only running a TP-Link wireless router (n) to the NTD via internal cabling.

We're up and running now, but there were some initial glitches. A
Thiess tech installed the kit & allegedly tested the connection. I
spent some time stuffing about that evening, unable to get online -
even when directly connecting some laptops to the NTD.

iiNet's specialist fibre team were pretty useless when I called them
(ie. "is the LED green?"). Apparently they could see my system
connected, but I wasn't getting assigned an IP addr (for either the
router, or the laptops). One of the laptops randomly made a
connection, then the router managed to connect when I plugged that in.
It seems to have been working since then.

I'd still prefer to move to a better ISP :-)
