Re: username and password for vdsl settings third party router

@totalwise 

 

If you continue with the NowTV Broadband, they will send you a router preconfigured for use with their service.

 

I have not seen any spam about the NowTV streaming services.

 

When I was with Sky for broadband, I feared they would spam me with offers for the satellite service. But they didn't, not once.

Re: username and password for vdsl settings third party router

Hi @totalwise 

 

Under My Account > Personal Details section whilst logged in on here there is an option on the screen page to opt out of NowTV sales & marketing emails by unticking the option box, but you will also lose the option of receiving special discounted offers that would be account specific to you.

Re: username and password for vdsl settings third party router

Just tried this method and selected same sky provider in drop down list on my Tp-link Archer VR900. The generated ppp u/n and p/w worked perfectly for NowTV broadband. Thank you!

Re: username and password for vdsl settings third party router

I found this really helpful, and just to add a little more detail here are the settings I used with my Archer VR400 v2 on NowTV.
I used WireShark on LAN port 1 and found the username to be like this:-

8e1332df1212@nowtv|trDFeWsC

 

So the start is the MAC address printed under the router. Wen I logged in the last digit of my address under LAN MAC address was a digit out.

The password is different from any I got from any calculators!

Settings:-

ISP List: SkyBroadband(BSkyB)ADSL

VPI:0
VCI:38

Internet Connection:PPPoA

Username: macadress@nowtv

Password:As sniffed

Re: username and password for vdsl settings third party router

I have my username and password. I am having some difficulty working out what mac address to use for my own router. My logon is *******40@nowtv the mac address on the bottom of the box ends *****40 but on the NOWTV portal it says the LAN MAC IS ********41 and the broadband address is *********42.

 

So do I use 40 or 41 to set the MAC address of my own router.

 

I cannot get it to connect. When I go to diagnostics I see "Showtime" 20 up and 80 down, but when I look at the WAN settings it errors saying incorrect username and password. I have used wireshark and I am 100% sure I have the correct username and password.

 

My other settings are

 

VPI 0

VCi 38

VC Mux

PPoE

 

Ip assignment: Dynamic

PPP Auth (PAP or CHAP)

Wan Connection mode: PPP detect

MTU 1500

Multi-PVC Channel: Channel 1

 

 

Any other suggestions would be gratefully received, I am desperate to get my router working as I am trying to do VOIP and the NOW router is modulating the voice traffic.
