Hi all, I'm having issues getting this running.

My setup is as per below

Dlink switch - (management IP address, this is only a layer 2 switch)
Tp Link router -

ONT (Port 1) ---> Dlink switch (Port 1)
Dlink switch (Port 2) ---> TP Link router (WAN port)

I have enabled 802.1q and added port 1 (tagged) to vlan 10. Port 2 does not belong to any vlan. I have configured the router as per the Spark settings here -
I have no issues getting it running when connecting the router to the Spark HG630b running in bridged mode.

I have tried so far
- Assigning an IP address in the 192.168.1.x/24 subnet to the switch
- Adding port 2 to vlan 1 (default vlan) and set to untagged

Got it working. Had to add port 2 on the switch to vlan 10 and set it as untagged.

Why are you going from the ONT to the switch and not directly to the router?

A friend was running a similar setup, but with one of my old linksys switches.

Anyway, thruput was well down on an asus router plugged straight into the ONT, when using the DSL series router with one of the LANs as a WAN via the switch. It "worked" but never got anywhere near the speeds they should have (only 100/20 so not a tall order)

Moved to bigpipe so no vlan needed and the same DSL series  router was giving close to 200/200 without the switch in the way. No idea why it was so slow but it was definatly bad. Not as slow as vdsl but not what they expected.
