For several years now using my own vigor 120 modem with my orcon dsl line has worked fine. Until 2-3 days ago when it dropped in the middle of the day and now will no longer connect.


Does anyone know of any changes that are needed now to make a third party modem work with orcon ? My white NF4V modem will connect, but neither my vigor 120, nor a second vigor 120 on latest firmware will.


I was using pppoe/a bridging to a miktrotik router but even just on the vigor itsself i cant get it to hold up the pppoa session any more. I've poured over the config from the nf4v but i can't see what they could have changed to block those modems but still allow the nf4v one.


What i've tried:
- reboots and resets
- vlan 10 on wlan port


I'm going with modulation mode g.dmt, vpi 0, vci 100, with the username and password from the nf4v but what i see in syslog output form the vigor is:


admin: DSL: Mode = 0[PPPoA]<166>Jan 1 00:00:05 admin: DSL: Encapsulation type = 0[VC_MUX]<166>Jan 1 00:00:05 admin: DSL: Modulation type = 2[G.DMT]<174>Jan 1 00:00:05 admin: ADSL_Status:[Mode=----- States=RESET UpSpeed=0 DownSpeed=0 SNR=0 Atten=0 ]<166>Jan 1 00:00:05 admin: DSL: DSL_DRV_Init error code: 0


I get the DSL light up, but not the internet one. I tried support but they fobbed me off as their own modem works.


I'm totally stumped. Anyone have any ideas ?

Given you've tried 2 DV120s I'm inclined to double check config.


G.DMT wouldn't be my first choice of modulation though - go for ADSL2+, or if on Orcon ULL then also try Annex M.

There must be something about these Vigor modems there have been very similar issues in the past where they just seem to stop establishing any broadband connection out of the blue.
