I never use a modem + wireless router. Been using the modem/router combo all the time.

Not sure is that the best basic settings I've done.
Hope anyone can help me tweak a little to make it much better.
I'm confuse on the dhcp both are enable at the moment.

Below is the vigor 120 settings

only ticked that PPPOE-Pass-through. Username & password is greyout.


The DHCP just leave it as default & the rest of the vigor settings are default.

WR941ND (Gargoyle)

and

which the lan dhcp enable too.


Thanks

That looks all correct. What are your ADSL sync speeds?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

The internet light on the Draytek won't light up if it's not actually establishing the internet connection (which it's not when running in bridge mode).

Yeah, everything looks correct in the DrayTek. I'd just be checking the PPPoE details on the router. Usually the generic login is user@xtrabb.co.nz
