That worked. Thanks
Also I am trying this router to a different provider which most likely identify the customers with username password and the Host-Uniq in pppoe
I saw that Asus just recently added the Host-Uniq as a parameter in the ppp profile.
Does anyone know how to add the Host-Uniq in Zyxel?

Is there any option in the GUI or through command (telnet)
to enable the Vectoring or it is completely automated

Vectoring is from a cab which has been enabled

I know the vectoring is from the cab
but I mean in the modem.
If the cab activates the vectoring how does zyxel know about that?
I know on other modems there is a gui option to activate the vectoring in modem

I am unfamiliar with the ZyXEL VMG8324-B10A so I shall use my VMG1312-B10D as an example.

Establish either an ssh or telnet connection to the device and from the Busybox shell interrogate the device for the vectoring status --

Code: [Select]
[Duo2 ~]$ ssh admin@ap
admin@ap's password:


BusyBox v1.20.1 (2016-10-18 15:41:48 CST) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

$ xdslctl info --vectoring
xdslctl: ADSL driver and PHY status
Status: Showtime
Last Retrain Reason: 8000
Last initialization procedure status: 0
Max: Upstream rate = 996 Kbps, Downstream rate = 5636 Kbps
Bearer: 0, Upstream rate = 995 Kbps, Downstream rate = 5115 Kbps

Currently not in VDSL modulation --vectoring is only for VDSL mode
$ Connection to ap closed.
[Duo2 ~]$

You will need to check for the correct command usage, either xdslcmd or xdslctl would be my first two guesses.

Try either xdslcmd --help or xdslctl --help and see what result you obtain.

I executed the xdslctl info --vectoring

~ # xdslctl info --vectoring
xdslctl: ADSL driver and PHY status
Status: Showtime
Last Retrain Reason:    0
Last initialization procedure status:   0
Max:    Upstream rate = 32878 Kbps, Downstream rate = 48126 Kbps
Bearer: 0, Upstream rate = 4996 Kbps, Downstream rate = 48144 Kbps

Vectoring state: 5
VCE MAC Address: 0:0:0:0:0:0
Total error samples Ethernet pkts sent: 0
Total error samples Ethernet pkts discarded: 0
Total error samples statuses sent: 0
Total error samples statuses discarded: 0
~ #

I can see it is not in vectoring mode but I am sure my ISP is going to activate vectoring in the next few months.
If my ISP activates the vectoring does the zyxel work in vectoring mode automatically or I have to enable it from my side as well

We can see that the modem/router understands the query but I am uncertain as to what the response discloses. It would be good to know the meaning of the various Vectoring state: responses.

Unless your ISP/CP owns the infrastructure over which the service is provided I cannot see how the ISP/CP can activate vectoring . . .

I am unable to answer your last question as I have no knowledge of the VMG8324-B10A. Perhaps other members may be able to comment?

Vectoring states:

0 = VECT_WAIT_FOR_CONFIG
1 = VECT_FULL
2 = VECT_WAIT_FOR_TRIGGER
3 = VECT_RUNNING
4 = VECT_DISABLED
5 = VECT_UNCONFIGURED

So the there is no vectoring.
If the ISP enables the vectoring in the CAB
would i see the vectoring in my zyxel enabled automatically or I have to do something from my side?

The ISP/CP can not and will not do so.  :no:  The hardware is (nominally) owned and managed by Openreach. In the fullness of time, Openreach may enable vectoring . . . but who knows?

That is the big unknown. I am unable to give an answer to that question. Wait and see would be my advice.

I am using a Zyxel 8324(v15 firmware) on my 55/10 vdsl line, vectoring was enabled on the cab in mid April and the router automatically enabled it.

The snrm downstream jumped from @8.5 upto @13.5 and the Downstream attainable went from @62500 to @73000.

So to answer your question yes the Zyxel automatically enables vectoring.

Thank you for confirming the default action of the VMG8324 regarding vectoring.

On the newest firmware my sync became capped at around 30Mbps. A reset didn't help so I restored to an older firmware and the cap went away. Very strange.

ZyXel are still actively working on the firmware - they sent me a test version recently for a DDNS issue I have  on my 8924 so worth getting in touch with them so they can fix it permanently if you haven't already
