Hey guys, pulling my hair out here.


I've just got an Asus RT-AC1200 and am trying to get it set up for my Snap!/2degrees broadband.




User Guide:


I've spoken to 2degrees broadband technical support and they couldn't help me get connected.  As with my personal experience, they couldn't find a setting for vlan anywhere.  He's the instructions from their site:


Can anyone help me out here please?  How and where can I find out what vlan tagging is and how to set it on my new router? :(

You firstly need to establish if your router supports VLAN tagging. 2degrees aren't going to be able to help you with that. You best bet would be to ask Asus support or the retailer where you purchased it from.


Some other Asus routers have VLAN support in the IPTV area. Some don't support it at all. There are plenty of such threads on here if you do a search such as this.

did you consider looking to see if the router supported VLAN tagging before buying it? or see what was required by your ISP for your type of connection?


it doesnt look like it supports VLAN tagging so you might be SOOL

Probably a tad late, but if u haven't figured it out yet.


to get any Asus router running the ASUS-WRT firmware running on fibre




Simply navigate to the "iptv" tab located under "lan",


under ISP profile check " custom " and then under internet make VID : 10 and PRIO: 0




click apply at the bottom of the page and your done.



then u just need to change your settings on the WAN page to whatever your ISP needs.




in the case of Snap/2Degrees


Set the encapsulation type to : PPPOE




then under account settings set PPP username to your Snap email address, e.g. :


and password to the password for the snap/2Degrees account




check apply at the bottom of the page, and you should be away laughing.
