Problems with Draytek Router

Hi all


I am trying to configure a Vigor Draytek 2850 VDSL router but cannot get it to connect. I have tried it both with and without the openreach modem ( i know this shouldn't be needed). 

When i go into WAN status i constantly get the message 'PPP Shutdown' On the draytek website they say this is down to incorrect username and password - but when i use these details on the standard plusnet router it works as it should.


This is getting proper frustrating now as i've used draytek routers in work for a while without any issues.


Thanks guys

Have a look at this old thread, it should help you with the settings.

The following two links may be of interest.


I believe there are problems with the 2850 and fibre connections (unless the Openreach modem is used).


Draytek have a helpful page on fibre and a modem.
