I just bought a new TD-W8960N yesterday and replacing the Telecom's TG585v7. I can see the router is connected with Telecom(we are using Telecom) but we just can't use the internet, I set up the connection using the following setting:

VPI/VCI: 0/100
UBR,
No QoS,
VC/MUX

And the router connected to telecom with the following information:
Default Gateway: 222.152.45.25(pppoa0)
Primary DNS Server: 122.56.237.1
Secondary DNS Server: 210.55.111.1

Destination          Gateway     Subnet Mask        Flag     Metric Service             Interface
222.152.45.25     0.0.0.0       255.255.255.255  UH 0    pppoa_0_0_100          pppoa0
192.168.1.0         0.0.0.0       255.255.255.0     U 0      br0
0.0.0.0                0.0.0.0       0.0.0.0               U 0      pppoa_0_0_100           pppoa0


I did the test in the router:
Test the connection to your DSL service provider 
Test ADSL Synchronization:  PASS
Test ATM OAM F5 segment ping: PASS
Test ATM OAM F5 end-to-end ping: FAIL

Test the connection to your Internet service provider
Test PPP server session: PASS
Test authentication with ISP:  PASS
Test the assigned IP address:  PASS
Ping default gateway:  PASS
Ping primary Domain Name Server:  FAIL


The log says:
Jan 1 00:00:47 user crit kernel: eth0 Link UP. 
Jan 1 00:00:47 user crit kernel: xDSL G.994 training 
Jan 1 00:00:47 user crit kernel: ADSL G.992 started

Jan 1 00:00:50 daemon crit syslog: PPP LCP UP. 
Jan 1 00:00:50 daemon crit syslog: Received valid IP address from server. Connection UP.




It seems we successful connected to Telecom but we just can't use the internet, with the LAN port or wireless, is there anything else we need to set up in the router? Thank you.

Interesting, I can get IP address from DNS servers but can not connect to anywhere.


C:\>ping google.co.nz

Pinging google.co.nz [74.125.224.52] with 32 bytes of data:

Found the problem.... There is a switch connected to the router and we didn't refresh the IP after swapped the switch to the new router, so all the computers are using a invalid IP address =.=

Sounds like you have a 2nd router connected rather than a basic switch, what make and model is this unit?

Ragnor: Sounds like you have a 2nd router connected rather than a basic switch, what make and model is this unit?

That's a big one with 24 ports. Internet is working after we just unplug->plug the cable on the computer to get a new IP from the DHCP. I don't want to go into that small-dark-cold room again to find the model >_<
