I have recently switched over to Maxis Fiber after being with Unifi since 2012. The main reasons I swap to Maxis Fiber is because I was being told that the service will be the same as Unifi (same infrastructure), I get unlimited data for my Maxis postpaid main & shared line, and a free Samsung Smart TV.
The process was simple, Maxis Fiber installer came to my place to install a new Maxis compatible wireless router (TP-Link Archer C5v) that comes with a 4G Dongle just in case of service interruption.
Everything was running smoothly after the switch but one – I wasn’t able to connect to my web hosting FTP. I keep getting Authentication error while trying to connect to my FTP using FileZilla. Called up to Maxis customer service and the problem was solved within minutes. The steps was simple. If you need to connect to FTP just follow the steps below.
3 simple steps to connect to FTP on Maxis Fiber Broadband
- Login to your wireless router with your Administrator account.
- Go to USB Settings -> FTP Server
- Enable “Server Status”
1. Login to your wireless router with your Administrator account
Check behind your router to find the correct address to connect to your router. By default it should be 192.168.1.254. Log in to the Administrator account by the username “administrator“. The password is the Serial Number of your wireless router that is stated behind your router.
2. Go to USB Settings -> FTP Server
On the left panel, click on USB Settings and then click on FTP Server in the dropdown list.
3. Enable “Server Status”
Under FTP Server, enable the Server Status.
That’s it, 1 simple flip of the toggle button and now I’m able to connect to my hosting server.
