Re: TP-LINK TD-W9980 on Infinity 2

Go to solution

Hmmm, maybe the OR modem is automatically tagging traffic in VLAN101 on its VDSL port.  When I use my 1841 I also use the OR modem as I don't have a VDSL WIC in it.

 

I've done a few installs for people and never 'had' to set the VLAN ID.

Just spotted this...

 

https://community.bt.com/t5/YouView-Boxes/Using-a-3rd-party-router-for-Multicast/td-p/1048582

 

...and in particular this section of that link...

 

For an end user connected via Openreach GEA (FTTC and FTTH)
• The Residential Gateway will support:
– IPoE for multicast traffic and PPPoE for BB traffic;
– VLAN tag ID of 0 or no VLAN tag ID for multicast and BB traffic;
– Fork IGMP requests up multicast and BB paths.

 

 

 

So, that confirms my theory about the OR modem tagging traffic on its WAN port. Smiley Happy

 

While it may be a bit awkward, using the OR modem via the LAN/WAN port on the W9980 therefore would be a workaround if you can't get it working via the W9980's VDSL port.

Thanks I will try that later when get back from the shops.

 

I had a reply from the makers and sent then log file, screen shots etc. 

 

VDSL2 setting is in the advanced menus.  There are a lot of parameters but I am reluctant to change too many at random without advice!

From the reviews I've read, the only settings to change are those I originally posted. I.e PPoE and VLAN101 with usual anything@btbroadband.com. Just noticed in your first post you had entered bthomehub@btinternet.com, was that just a typo on here or did you enter it on the TP Link?

It was a typo!  Not entered into the modem.

The BT Home Hub 5 just has that generic login with no password.  I used my normal BT Internet ID and password and can connect with VDSL2, VLAN ID 101 as suggested and Annexe A.

 

Not got it working with the YouView box yet so will go back to the Home Hub 5 shortly whilst I have a think about that.

 

At least I can connect the Windows 8 PC to it without any problems which is more than I can say for the Home Hub 5.

 

This website has quite a bit about the W9980

Try to make the network as similar as when the HH5 was there, ie. use 192.168.1.254 on the router then see if the Youview box picks up a DHCP lease when you use the W9980.

Still not got anything on the YouView box, must be a parameter that I have not set yet correctly.

I have not got any further with this.  There is a message on this forum that might give some clues to someone with more knowledge about Multicast etc.
