Recently on setting up a new internet connection, I ran a speed test via ( speedtest.net ) with produced the following error

Latency Test Error – Could not connect to the test server A firewall could be blocking the connection or the server might be having some issues

Pinging Google DNS Server 8.8.8.8 came up with a sold under 15m response , strange?

I tried playing around with the MTU to no avail either

Turns out this is actually a DNS issue, the local DNS servers had forwarders set to their Old ISP , so change the DNS to the new ISP or Google fixed this!

So you’ve just got a TPG IP Line connection and they have sent you your IP , how do you set this up on your Fortigate or other router?

They would have sent you an IP with Netmask e.g. : 210.9.x.x/30

How do you set this up on your router?

Enter the IP in the Subnet Calculator with the mask bit e.g. 30 and it will give you the range you can work from

38.242.x.x will be the network address cannot be used as it used to identify where the network starts

38.242.x.x ( +1) Will be the ISP Gateway , you need this to add a static route on the foritgate for this WAN Port

38.242.x.x ( +2) Will be the IP address you need to set on your Foritgate

 

Next you will need to add a policy to allow all outbound from Lan to the new WAN Port
