TP-LINK TD-8817 settings for BT copper not fibre replace Home Hub 3

I thought I would share how to use the TP-LINK TD-8817 ADSL2+ Modem Router as a Replacement for the home hub3

this is Ideal if you want to Have your own more advanced firewall behind the modem such as a ZENTYAL SERVER 

 

Hope it helps save someone else some time

 

The Settings were all prety much detected by the Quick set up wizard Once I selected BT as the service provider from the Drop down 

 

The username should be entered the same as the home hub 3 eg bthomehub@btbroadband.com

 

I found that the password should be a valid email pattern I used myname@btbroadband.com

I did read in many places the password could be anything, however I found it needed to be a valid email pattern.

 

The settings at a detailed level if you want to input without the wizard are as follows

Virtual Circuit PVC0

VPI 0

VCI 38

ATM QoS UBR

PCR 0

SCR 0

MBS 0

 

IP Version IPv4 

 

ISP PPPoA/PPPoE   

 

Username bthomehub@btbroadband.com

password mynam@btbroadband.com

 

Encapsulation PPPoA VC-Mux

 

This ADSL2+ Modem Router only has One Lan Port So you will need a Switch to add further lan ports

That must be a quirk of the router, BT don't actually require a password at all as the authentication is against your phone number, hence generic login.
