Hello, before I switch my Vigor 130 to bridge mode and plonk it in front of the DD-WRT router, can someone let me know how I can access the management interface for the Vigor from the LAN after making the change? Do I simply assign it a LAN address from a different private subnet to the one I use on the LAN behind DD-WRT?




Anyone else already running this configuration on Big Pipe VDSL?

Assign an IP on a unique subnet and create a static route for that subnet from the router to the Draytek.

I asked Snappernet about 10 days ago and there reply was:


When the DV130 is in bridge mode it basically acts as a media converter/modem from DSL to Ethernet. There is no need to then interact with its WebUI.




While the DV130 and Edgerouter have the same LAN IP address or are in the same subnet you will not be able to configure one via the other.  You would need to change the IP address of one device to a different subnet, eg set the DV130 LAN IP to, then on the EdgeRouter WAN interface add an alias IP address that is in that same range, eg Your LAN devices should then be able to address the DV130 on




If you do want to configure the DV130 for another purpose at some point in the future then the easiest way is to keep a copy of the bridge mode config from us (in case you need it again) and factory reset the DV130 using the reset button on the back of the unit.




In the end I didn't bother as they had said 'There is no need to then interact with its WebUI' and I have kept a copy of their bridge mode config.

The guys at SnapperNet are fantastic.


I do like to look at the WebUI so I can see US/DS speeds.  I make a note of these and compare the installation speeds to current speeds when doing troubleshooting.


Having said that, I have never done so with a DV130

I've got a couple of connections that are setup VDSL bridge Draytek 130 --> mikrotik and as steve said create and IP and a static route and it should work.


I have been able to access the web interface on the draytek for DSL stats etc. but I was playing around with nat rules the other day to fix ipsec issues and have broken it again so that's the weekend task

I can access the normal DV130 web interface while it is in bridge mode connected to my primary Netgear R7000 router by a non-standard Ethernet cable connection arrangement...


The Netgear router has four LAN ports built into it along with the normal 'Internet' port. A short patch cable connects the router Internet port and one of the LAN ports. The DV130 is plugged into one of the other LAN ports. The main network switch is connected to another router LAN port.


Router and Modem have separate local IP addresses and both web interfaces are fully accessible from the network at any time.


It has worked this way with no issues for many years.


Why does this not cause any issues for me ?

OK, got it working now. For the next person wanting to do this, assuming you have say: for your internal subnet, and, on the Draytek.


On your DD-WRT router, go to Administration-> Commands




ifconfig `nvram get wan_ifname`:0 netmask


and save it to your Startup




Then Enter


iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -o `nvram get wan_ifname` -j MASQUERADE


and save it to your Firewall.




If you have existing startup or firewall commands, remember to press the Edit button before appending the above commands.
