Hope I am in the right sub.

Configured Netcomm to work as a bridge as per instructions found here. Flashed TP-Link tl-wr841n to the latest stable OpenWRT 15.05.

In the system log I am getting:

 

Wed Oct 7 08:31:04 2015 daemon.notice netifd: Interface 'wan' is setting up now

 

Wed Oct 7 08:31:04 2015 daemon.info pppd[19295]: Plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded.

 

Wed Oct 7 08:31:04 2015 daemon.info pppd[19295]: RP-PPPoE plugin version 3.8p compiled against pppd 2.4.7

 

Wed Oct 7 08:31:04 2015 daemon.notice pppd[19295]: pppd 2.4.7 started by root, uid 0

 

Wed Oct 7 08:31:19 2015 daemon.warn pppd[19295]: Timeout waiting for PADO packets

 

Wed Oct 7 08:31:19 2015 daemon.err pppd[19295]: Unable to complete PPPoE Discovery

 

Wed Oct 7 08:31:19 2015 daemon.info pppd[19295]: Exit.

 

Wed Oct 7 08:31:19 2015 daemon.notice netifd: Interface 'wan' is now down

 



Any suggestions what to check before I approach Orcon for advise?

Thank you.

Orcon use DHCP tagged on VLAN 10 - there is no other configuration (username / password) required.

Ensure you've enabled VLAN tagging on the WAN interface and set the WAN interface to grab an IP address via DHCP, should work from there.

Edit: If you're bridging because you have VDSL / ADSL I'd recommend just shoving your TP-Link router into a Dumb AP and using your main router as your DHCP server etc, you'll just need to disable DHCP on the TP-Link router and ensure it's IP address is one on your main routers range.

I am bridging exactly because I do not want Netcomm to be as a main router. Thing is dropping packets randomly or spikes latency to seconds.

Will check about VLAN tagging. Does it apply to ADSL?

Those Netcomm routers that are provided are actually rather good. Ensure you're not using it over WiFi as this will drop packets / spike latency instead use Ethernet and you shouldn't have any problems.

Since you're on ADSL it is a little different. I am personally not sure how to set it up via ADSL however I am sure somebody around here will. Just remember, using another router will mean you lose the phone service (if you're using that).

The NF4V and NF8AC are IMHO two of the most stable devices in the market right now. If you're seeing issues I'm not sure the hardware if necessarily going to be the cause.

As you're on ADSL the most common cause of the two such issues is upstream saturation which is an incredibly common problem these days.

They are not that good if they drop packets foot-in-mouth
