@gavs82008 I want to create a post for people to comment on. Why do I have to tell you what I want to post? Have I been blocked or not? If I have then for what reason?

Re: TP Link Router with NowTv?

Sorry. I gave up trying because NowTV are useless. I cancelled my contract
as soon as I could and everything is much better since.
Sorry I can't help.

Have you tried this, and had difficulties, or what?

Re: TP Link Router with NowTv?

I have a TP-Link Archer VR600 aka AC1600 which I used with a previous ISP and has features I find useful, like being able to assign different DNS servers (I use PiHole to filter advertisements and tracking sites on my home network, or might want to use 1.1.1.1 for Families to filter adult content and malware). I'm surprised how locked down the NowTV Hub is compared to most ISPs. I guess they want to keep things as simple as possible for support purposes.

 

Setting it up was very straightforward. Other TP-Link models, particularly older ones, may have different interfaces.

 

  1. Go to Quick Setup
  2. Select region (Europe) and timezone (London) then click next
  3. From ISP List select Sky(MER)_VDSL (if you don't see this then you might want to update the firmware then click Next
  4. For username enter abcdefgh@skydsl
  5. For password enter 1234567890abcdef
  6. Click Next
  7. Configure WiFi as per your requirements then click Next
  8. The connection test run and should show you are connected - Hooray!
  9. Click Finish
  10. Make any additional settings required

This was a lot simpler than many of the posts and web pages I had seen.  You don't need Wireshark or cloning the MAC address of the NowTV Hub.

 

I'm happy to report that IPv6 works with this router as well!
