Its a good idea to check that your settings are correct as well:


ADSL equipment used on the Telecom and Chorus networks must be Telepermit PTC273 certified.


  • VPI: 0
  • VCI: 100
  • Multiplexing: VCMUX
  • MTU: 1500
  • Encapsulation: RFC 2364 (or 'PPPoverATM', also known as 'PPPoA')
  • Operating Mode (ADSL2+): AUTO or G.992.5 Annex A
  • Operating Mode (ADSL2): AUTO or G.992.3 Annex A
  • Operating Mode (ADSL1): AUTO or G.992.1 (G.DMT) or ANSI T1.413 Issue 2
  • DO NOT use G.992.2 (G.Lite)
Note: You may not be prompted for all values.

The reverse is true as well. You can use a Telecom ADSL modem on a Vodafone (or any other provider's) ADSL connection, unless its a 2Wire modem.

Whatever you do, if this is a DSL modem previously used on a still active Vodafone before make sure it's removed from that account.
