I have FTTP provided by Openreach which works with the BT HOmehub provided however I wanted to use my previous router - TP-Link Archer C3200 if possible. When I connect this router to the Openreach ONT's PORT1 with connection set to PPPoE with User firstname.lastname@example.org with no password all the right the lights comes on to say that that it is connected to the internet and when I loginto its control panel this confirms it.
My PC connects to the router OK and says there is an internet connection however when I try to access through my browser I get a message from BT saying I need to log into the network.
Using the BT HomeHub there i s no problem .
What am I doing wrong? Do I need a Fibre Modem?
Is the C3200 a VDSL modem? if not I don't think it will work
Thanks for your reply.
Below is the internet configuration when connected through the BT Home Hub.
Login is email@example.com with no password.
Connecting the TP-Link Archer C3200 through the same cable and Port on the ONT as the HomeHub above comes out as shown below. Where the Internet connection light is a nice shiny blue.
Below is the Network configuration from the TP-Link. I tried this both with no password and with the password BT with the sme result.
Finally, below is the message I get back on my browser whenever I try to connect to any internet site through my browser.
did you try as @licquorice suggested and enter the password in the tplink even though hub doesn't need one
It is definitely an authentication problem as you are reaching the BTWholesale landing page. I would first try a factory reset of theTP Link and start again. If that fails to work, investigate the authentication settings of the TP Link and try CHAP if set to AUTO.
