Having 2 HG659 home gateways recently die on me, I'm looking to utilise a TPLink TL-WDR3600.

 

The setup for the TP-Link WAN doesn't include anything specific for the Vodafone settings required, VLAN tagging ?

 

Am I missing something, or is there a workaround by reflashing to a DD-WRT image ?

 

 

 

Cheers





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

I had the same issue with my TP-Link Archer C7 with Vodafone FibreX. I needed to put in a value of 10 for VLAN Tagging, and the existing firmware would not allow values lower than 16. TP-Link had a modified firmware that supported VLAN tagging values of 10, which I installed. Just contact them and ask them if they have a firmware that supports VLAN ID values of 10 for your model router.

 

In my TP-Link Archer C7 router's firmware the value of 10 is entered in Network/IPTV/Internet VLAN ID

 

Hope that helps.

It is quite an underpowered router so don't expect much from it.
