I have just switch to BigPipe from 2D and I'm trying to setup my fritzbox 7490. I found an old thread here about it but the discussion there ( ) did not help me.


I am following their official advice from here:


In my fritzbox I have setup the following:


Under Internet => Account Information => Create new internet service provider connection (original settings were from 2d)


New settings:


* Connect via => Connection to a DSL line


* Account information => my bigpipe login/password


* Connection settings => checked "Maintain permanently (recommended for flat rates)"


* VLAN settings => VLAN ID = 10


* DSL ATM settings => set manually. VPI = 0; VCI = 110


* Encapsulation: PPPoE


* IPv6 disabled


* DNS servers are using the servers provided by Bigpipe (manually setup)




When I switch to "online monitor" I see that I get a IPv4 address and it says that it is connected. But I can't use the internet.


The "Internet" LED on the modem is OFF. The only LED that are ON are the "Power/DSL"  and "info"




Could someone please help?

Does this work with another router? Take it that you're also using VDSL? BigPipe also offer IPv6 so leave that IPv6 tickbox ticked :)

Depending of you plan you have to untick VLAN settings.

No backup, no pity. Anyway, RAID isn't one.
