Hi,

 

 

 

Does anyone know why you can't use your own router on Vodafone's Fibre X network and know if you can make your own router to work?

 

 

 

I have an Asus RT-AC56U and have tried but it won't pick up an IP via DHCP as know you don't have a static IP via standard Cable on Vodafone.

 

 

 

The Huawei HG659 router are just plain awful.

As is mentioned in the main FibreX thread, the new services behave just like UFB. That is, they use VLANs. That means that the 802.1Q priority bits are actioned (like UFB). But it also means that you need a router that can support VLANs on its WAN port. Specifically, it needs to talk on VLAN 10. If you DHCP on VLAN 10, you'll get a lease. But untagged frames are just dropped.
