IPTV 3rd Party Router / Netgear or Linksys

Hi folks,

 

I would like to remove my BT HH6 from my network however I cannot get IPTV channels to work.

 

Here is what I have tried:

 

BT HH6 --> Netgear R7000 (IPTV channels work)

 

Netgear DM200 --> Netgear R7000 (IPTV Channels do not work)

 

Linksys X6200 (AC750) --> Netgear R7000 (IPTV Channels do not work)

 

I know my R7000 is configured correctly, and the Netgear DM200 has a function to support IPTV yet I cannot get it to work.

 

When I access the GUI of the DM200, I get a public IP address but no IP address for "PTV IP Address"

 

I have also tried to clone the MAC address of the BT HH6 onto the DM200 and X6200 but no joy.

 

Can anyone help me with this please?

Hi Skappy70..

 

Yes I did see that post, although I don't want to buy another powerful router as that's what my R7000 is for.

 

The Netgear DM200 does have a profile for IPTV when you set it up, so surely that should support it, no?

You need a fibre modem to connect to the VDSL before your R7000

 

You can buy an Huawei or ECI on ebay for few quids. The choice will depend on your cabinet make

 

If instead you want to use your netgear DM200 you need to set it up in bridge mode only with the router connecting via PPOE

Hi Interceptor121

 

the DM200 supports VDSL and I have full infitnity speed with it.

 

Setup currently as I type this is:

 

BT Inifity Wall Socket --> DM200 --> R7000 

 

I was looking to avoid buying a BT Openreach Modem

 

The only thing that does not work are IPTV Channels

You need to find the setting for bridge mode in the DM200 otherwise IPTV won't work

 

If your ISP does not support bridge mode for an IPTV virtual interface, the check box
does not display onscreen.
If you are specifying the settings for the IPTV virtual interface and your ISP informed you
that you must use bridge mode, select the Bridge Mode
check box.
Some devices, such as an IPTV, cannot function behind the modem’s Network Address
Translation (NAT) service or firewall. Based on what your ISP requires (some ISPs
support an IPTV virtual interface but do not require bridge mode), you can enable the
bridge between the device and the modem’s IPTV virtual interface so that the device
can connect directly to the ISP’s network.
 
This is because the modem has also NAT. Alternatively you can try to set the R7000 in bridge mode but this is a bad idea

Hi

 

Turning the DM200 into a Bridge (modem only) is possible, but when I do I can't get connected to my BT Inifinity service.

 

Due to that, it doesn't pass traffic across to the R7000.

 

Grrrrrr 😞

Thats because you need to set the R7000 as PPOE client while it would be itself
In bridge mode otherwise and no device would connect

Thansk for the advise

 

I don't really want to put my R7000 in bridge mode and I like the fact the DM200 is on a completely different IP/Subnet range compared to my internal network.

 

I suspect that's why you said it would be a bad idea to turn my R7000 into bridge mode.
