Hey all,

I was trying to set this up for a mate at his house but it was not playing ball, it worked in bridge mode but then we don't have the setting we really want to be able to use. Plug in the WAN, set up pppoe and vlan 10, the only thing we are not 100% certain of is the password we entered what we think it should be but had no luck, should the password be the same one you log into 2 degrees to see your account info? Has anyone set this device up and know that it works on 2 degrees as the primary router. Anything else obvious I may have missed?

Thank you.
EPR

If you have a Fibre connection, use these settings:
- Username: Your username@snap.net.nz
- Password: The password you chose at sign up.
- Encapsulation: PPPoE
- VLAN ID: 10

Regarding the password it should be the same one you use to login to My 2Degrees.

Generally, the password would be the same, but don't have to be. Login to 2D Broadband and set a new pwd. Then you will be sure.

Put the Fritz into client mode. I’m mobile but there are instructions on the internet. After this, put it behind the AmpliFi.

Internet ---> Account Information --->

Operating Mode


Select this option***

Share existing internet connection in the network (Mesh WiFi / IP client mode)
The FRITZ!Box becomes part of the existing home network and takes over this IP address range. The firewall of the FRITZ!Box is disabled. If the other router that spans the home network is also a FRITZ!Box with Mesh WiFi functionality, this FRITZ!Box can become part of the Mesh WiFi.
