Re: Salt Fiber Box

Hi

Has anyone solved the problem of putting the Salt Fibre box into the fuse box in new build apartments?

Currently have it sitting outside the fuse box cabinet (which holds the finer connection) amongst the coats hung up which is obviously not ideal.

Furthermore, WiFi isn't so great with this setup.

Tips & tricks are most welcome.

Having no help from salt client service, I went to a salt store to test my wifi 6 router. It turns out it did not work with the store's fiber box as well (in the 10 Gbps port).
Does anyone know if this port is using any specific technology?

Thank you
I have the 2.5 WAN port working on a ASUS XT8 router. I can’t figure out how to get the upload over 750.

Try the Speedtest app (rather than the browser) from the Microsoft store and see what happens.
Another option is to use "iperf3" (command-line utility - see https://iperf.fr/iperf-download.php for the binaries and https://iperf.fr/iperf-servers.php for some test servers) with parallel streams and see what that gets you.

I have the exact same issue. I tried every possible (?) solution and setup but no luck. After I tried with another router from my friend (different brand) and it worked immediately. It looks like Asus (or this model at least) is not compatible.
Hi all,

I'm thinking of changing to Salt Fibre, too. I thought to use an Asus XT8 behind the Salt box (because of the good backhaul).
However, I read here about problems with the Asus XT8 (connecting the 2.5 Gbps WAN port to the 10 Gbps port of the salt box).

Does anybody know if there's a solution to this problem? Or is it solved with a new firmware (on Asus XT8)?

Thanks very much!

Re: Salt Fiber Box

Do I need to have an IPv4 to connect another router to the salt fiber box? My experience with the WiFi from the box is awful, so I'd like to try my luck with a different device

Re: Salt Fiber Box

you can either double-NAT via the WAN connection of your second router or use an AP from a LAN connection. The class D network LAN will give both IPv4 and IPv6 IPs.

I have double-NAT with a TP-Link box. It works well.

New Salt Fiber / Home box on the horizon: https://www.xavierstuder.com/2021/03...-fibre-box-x6/
Said to be available also for existing customers for 100CHF. Wifi6 is the new feature. Hopefully also an upgraded firmware with additional features?

New Apple TV Remote

For those of you who don't like the Siri remote you received when you signed up for Salt, Apple has made a new remote for the Apple TV.

This one is based on the old Apple TV remote that predated the Apple TV 4K and works with your Apple TV 4K.

Noticeable right away are a new navigation ring, power button and mute button. The Siri button is now on the side.

"The new model has a brand new design that should be easy to use even in the dark. The flat touchpad has been replaced with a circular direction pad with five way physical controls. The surface is touch sensitive and you can also swipe on it to navigate through the UI. Moreover, users can also run their fingers around the ring to scrub through content like the click wheel on the iPod. The Siri button has been moved to the right side. The remote now also features mute and power button to directly control your television, so you don't need to use the TV remote."

Re: Salt Fiber Box

works out of the box for Samsung TVs. It's cheap, robust. Go try it in a store (wash your hands afterwards).

I'm used to turning the TV on using the +/- buttons on the Siri remote and the TV icon held town to turn it off.

How does that work with the Salt remote? Do you need more than one remote to turn different devices on and off?

Re: Salt Fiber Box

With the Apple remote, I use Menu to turn on the TV and ATV, Sleep Now to send them down.

With the Salt remote, I press the power button for the TV and Menu for ATV.

The TV remote is solely used to change sources, rarely.

Yeah, I have an old Cablecom Thompson universal remote and I noticed that "Sleep Now" DOES turn off both devices at once.

Thanks for sharing CHnuschti...

Any idea why Salt are swapping some of their "original" white boxes? I got a new "identical" modem and the letter was very clear in also swapping the new supplied power supply (wonder if that's the main reason)... There is no explanation anywhere on the swap - as companies would usually say New improved this and that...

I hear the first time about changing boxes initiated by salt themselves. A while ago salt announced a cooperation with a software tech for a kind of survey of their boxes, i.e. with prediction when that box is supposed to die. Kind of coffee cup reading I guess ... But AFAIK swisscom has something similar, which also leads to occasional premature replacement of boxes.

Another call to put up a firewall between you and the box.

Re: Salt Fiber Box

Dont change to Salt fiber. Mostly this fiber box has a lot of disconnections. It is not really stable, the low price might alure you to it, but its not worth it. If you have the chance take INIT7.

On the contrary, I have had a fantastic experience with Salt Fiber for years. Interruptions are extremely rare, my connection is stable, and the speed is faster than I've ever needed.

Perhaps there's an issue with your personal equipment, or the cabling within your building?

Strange, mine is rock solid since 2.5 years. And I was able to count exactly ONE minor downtime of the provider service in that period.

I number it among other pro-init7 propaganda, since it is actively promoted. I'm observing it since a while now, seems to be not enough to demean salt (or others), no, there is "need" to praise init7 in the same breath. Make your conclusions ...

Maybe you take a look at twitter, to see reports of quite a number of outages of the allegedly "exceptional" init7 all over lately.
