Optical Network Router, also known as ONR, is a device that includes the functions of an optical network terminal and a router. The router function does not provide wireless capability. Subscribers will be able to connect up to 4 wired devices for internet access simultaneously. To have wireless internet access, a wireless access point will have to be purchased and setup. Subscribers can use an existing wireless router/access point, or purchase from an IT store, or purchase a new wireless access point from WhizComms. On the wireless device option, both router and access point mode will work with WhizComms ONR.
The ONR can support up to 4 x 1Gbps Ethernet ports concurrently. This optical network terminal also includes wired router functionality to enable wired internet connectivity up to 1Gbps.

Setting a wireless device to Access Point mode if applicable;
WhizComms home fibre broadband plans comes with Internet traffic management of Bit Torrent or Peer-to-Peer (P2P) file sharing activities. Contrary to popular beliefs, this benefits Internet users as it ensures ample network bandwidth for all other Internet usage activities like video streaming, gaming and web surfing.
The LAN segment of ONR IP address range can be changed. Do contact WhizComms customer service consultant on live chat at www.whizcomms.com.sg for the guide.
WhizComms ONR has both a WAN segment that is allocated the public IP address owned by WhizComms, and a LAN segment IP of 192.168.10.x as the ONR has wired router functions. To connect the ONR to an external wireless router would therefore see the WAN IP as an internal 192.168.10.x address. The recommendation would be to set the external wireless device as Access Point mode. The ONR configuration page can be accessed via the browser with login details on the underside of the ONR.
Port forwarding and dynamic DNS configuration guide will be made available upon request. Do contact WhizComms customer service consultant on live chat at www.whizcomms.com.sg for the guide.
