Message 5 of 5

Hi,

 

A couple of days ago, got upgraded to Future Fibre, however wasn't provided with any equipment as specified in the text from BT prior to the installation.

 

And ofcourse they switched the service whilst in the middle of work. I've not been able to get the TPLink Archer VR2800 connected, so have had to resort to using the original TalkTalk WiFi Hub. 

 

My qustion is has anyone been able to configure a TPLink Archer VR2800 or any other TPLink with a  Future Fibre connection (FTTP).

Managed to sort. Unticked VLAN Tag and left connection type as Dynamic IP.

Ideally you need to be using a router which is more suited to say a Virgin Media connection - as such there's no VDSL modem fitted. 

VDSL is not required for the future fibre service. The connection is made by dhcp, so when connecting a router which has just a WAN port the router will obtain it's wan IP by DHCP. I currently use my unifi UDM pro for the connection and it just connects to the Ethernet port of the ONT and gets a public WAN ip.
