Good day everyone,
Is anyone able to confirm if the Asus RT-AC88U router is compatible with Nowtv Broadband, please?
Apparently it should support both MPoA and option 61, but I cannot determine this.
Many thanks in advance,
Yes, but are you using Now Broadband?
@Anonymous User many thanks.
Does your Asus RT-AC88U, completely replace the standard NowTV hub i.e. right out of the box, or is there another device connected or did you have to upgrade the firmware?
All the very best
You will need a modem bridge for superfast vdsl such as the tp link td w9970. When/if Now does ultrafast fttp the rt ac88u will connect directly to the fttp ont gpon unit :-
Instructions for setting up tp link td w9970 as modem bridge
select sky vdsl from isp list.
In the end I purchased a DLS-AX82U, which I replaced the NOWTV hub two box with, add the VLAN IS 101 and made up a password ie 12 random letters of your choice; follow by @skydsl| followed by 8 random letters, hit the clone mac button and it just worked.
But I've decided to leave Nowtv cos this info shouldn't be difficult to find!!! I'm not sure why these ISP make such a flipping mystery out of such... don't they wanna keep their customers or encourage new ones???
