I'm receiving an EdgeRouter Lite in the mail very soon (so excited haha). Currently I have Spark VDSL and a Technicolor TG589vn v2 router/modem combo unit. DHCP on our network is handled by a Raspberry Pi, with IP addresses being handed out on the 10.0.0.0/8 subnet. This Pi also hosts a FreeRadius server for WPA2-Enterprise encryption on our WiFi (We use 3x UniFi APs connected to a digital ocean droplet cloud controller)
I'm wondering a couple of things, firstly how to configure the technicolor so that it is functioning just as a VDSL bridge for the EdgeRouter so that I don't have a Double NAT. I've read that you can set it up in bridge mode but am unsure about this option. Secondly what would the correct configuration be on the EdgeRouter to work on Spark VDSL? I hear these units can be a pain to setup from older forum posts.
Once the EdgeRouter is all installed and stable i'm going to turn off the DHCP on the Pi and instead use the EdgeRouter for this. My thinking was wired devices will be plugged into a switch in Eth1 and receive a 10.1.x.x IP address, while WiFI APs will connect to a switch in Eth2 and receive a 10.2.x.x address. Any thoughts on this and how it would be setup?
Some extra info:
Technicolor IP: 10.0.100.1
Pi IP: 10.0.100.100
(all devices that require a static IP are assigned a 10.0.100.x address)
Thanks for your help, please suggest better ways to setup my network if you can!
