[admin, I am not sure if this should be posted in a VF forum rather than here. If so, I apologise.]




I just had a VF installer set me up with FibreX connection and Vodafone TV. I am thrilled to get that old clunky decoder out of the house and replace it with an IP based TV solution.


Now, my previous setup had an Ubiquity USG and UAP-AC-LR along with an HP switch. I managed to get the HP switch and Ubiquity AP to work  (disabled Wifi on the Ultrahub; both Ubiqity AP and VF TV box via switch), however I was hoping to replace the Ultrahub entirely and go with the Ubiquity USG.


Simply connecting the USG to the new VF modem does not work (no internet, no tv). I suspect this has something to do with VLAN tagging? If so, I will need to ask for assistance, as I don't know how to properly enable this in the USG. (interestingly, the HP switch does not need VLAN tagging enabled, all wired connections, including the TV decoder box, work)


Thanks in advance for any help.

You need to set VLAN10 on the WAN and use DHCP.


You will probably also need to enable IGMP (multicast) to enable the TV box.
