Currently using the free Wireless Thomson modem/router for our Telecom Broadband.
As I'm having a number of issues getting various devices to talk to each other over the Wifi network (and I'm fairly sure our old router let us talk to different devices).
How do I find out what my BB login/connection settings are etc in order to copy this data across to the other router?
TIA
Simon

Will be in the guidebook that come with it when the connection was established.

Or, whatever your email/password is but with .xadsl

IE [email protected] would be [email protected] in the router.

With Xtra it is tied to your port, you can put in anything in the username/password fields. But possibly won't let you keep an eye on the usage meter without it.

PVC/VPI(Iforget)- 0/100

PPPoA

The norm.

just "[email protected]" and a random password "12345" will do.

It is tied to your port, usage meter will still count etc.

Do you know if the correct PPP settings are still required for a static IP?

Depends :).  On if your an old FIPD customer or if you have been migrated.

The vast majority of customers now BBA customers are then you have a Static IP and port 25 open or not depending on your line and it doesn't matter what you put in for your username / password.  But I recommend to everyone to have [email protected] & password of "password".

If you are a old FIPD customer which there still are a small number of and had a static IP you needed to login with the right username & password to get that Static IP and to open Port 25.




I work for Spark, but as always my views are my own.
