Hi,

I will be setting up a non supported router ( Linksys E4200 with DD-WRT ) for my UFB install next week, and while the ISP is going to give me the basics, it is likely to take a bit of fiddling to get going.

This got me thinking that it might be a good idea to see the default setups that the ISPs put on their modems, to give a bit of a reference library for users like me :)

I have seen some configs posted, but in different threads, so thought this might be a chance to bring them together in one spot :)

Feel free to post non standard configs as well, it all helps

I would recommend including the make and model of the modem, your isp, your LFC and your general location (sorry if i'm teaching everyone to suck eggs :) ) to help with searching.

cheers
Clint

Does the E4200 with DD-WRT do VLAN tagging? If not, it won't work.

There isn't a standard setup as such. It varies by ISP.

Some do PPPoE, some to DHCP using Option 82, some do static IP. Some also require VLAN tagging on the external interface, some don't.

Yes it does. ....from about 15000 above. Apparently it can be a wee bit buggy, and may require some scripting. Will post details once I have it going :)

I figured that might be the case, hence the reason for creating the thread to include all default setups with details to make it easy to search for your ISP and LFC :)

Will also be interesting to compare they way the different ISPs do their setups
