Hey guys am getting vdsl connected mid next month and have already recived the Technicolor v2 modem however just wondering if I could use my existing tp-link  W8970 modem.
The manual states that
"LAN4/WAN, LAN3, LAN2, LAN1: Through these ports, you can connect the modem router to your PC or the other Ethernet network devices. Enable EWAN function and you will be able to connect to Cable/FTTH/VDSL/ADSL device."

or would I have to set the telecom modem to bridge to use my tp-link one.

You will need the Technicolor TG589vn to act as the VDSL2 modem as your TP-Link only does ADSL2+.

If you are used to your TP-Link and want to continue using it as your router, you would setup your TG589vn in bridged (very easy to do as it is provided as a preset option) then use the EWAN functionality of your TP-Link to terminate PPPoE.

Thanks for the info I might have to do just that and I have got used to the tp-link plus it has the gigabit lan ports as well.

The Telecom supplied one seems ok and I can port forward services on a server I have but I cannot for the life of me find anywhere where I can reserve a dhcp address for just the server so its always on the same address ie 192.168.1.123 , I can access all the different ports on the server  on the home net work ie 192.168.1.123:8987 but I cannot access it from out side the network from the web via using my ip address.

Hi, can you not just assign a static address to the servers tcp stack, that's what most of us do.

Thanks for the reply Cyril , Sorry I would have no idea how to do that will have to have a Google. In saying its a server its a box running windows 7 with several services that I use on the home network.

On my tp-link I can set port forward to a specific ip address and have that address reserved in another setting.
