Hi, 

I'm struggling with setting up a tp link router td w8980 modem/router at the moment. At the moment I've been trying 

VPI - 0 VCI- 38

PPPoA

Username:7050afbe1fa0@skydsl

and password genereated from http://www.ph-mb.com/products/sky-calc (I've tried both Sagem F@st & Sky V2 Black Netgear)

Channel Auto

Mode 11bgn

but still not getting a PPP connection on the diagnostic tool. 

Any ideas?

Thanks!

 


Hi @Passiveconsumer AFAIK you can use any @skydsl address like abcde@skydsl and it should give you no problems.

 

  • In the username field, enter abcdefgh@skydsl
  • In the password field, enter 1234567890abcdef

 

Found this via this website for a source. But i don't know if this will completely fix your problem. https://kevq.uk/how-to-use-a-tp-link-router-with-sky-fibre-optic/

Re: TP Link Router with NowTv?

Absolutely rubbish equipment and therefore poor customer service. It seems the company knows how shoddy the equipment is but would not help to solve the problem. 

Why can't you just provide with wifi repeater dongles that would work with your sunstabsard equipment as a compensation. 

I so want to get out of this contract. How could you expect loyalty?

Re: TP Link Router with NowTv?

I second this...

any updates on configuring modem/router - TP-Link VR600?

when my contract is up with NowTV broadband I’m leaving, shouldn’t be this difficult to do something so simple.

Re: TP Link Router with NowTv?

I have now figured it out after having a second crack at it.

got my username and password using wireshark method as many YouTube videos have this relating to sky hub.

using TP-Link VR600 modem/router combo. No need for nowTV router anymore!

key for me was to update the router firmware on my VR600. 

Good luck to those attempting this! It is possible!
