I have a TP-Link VR2600 router that I was previously using with Plusnet FTTC. I had FTTP upgrade last week and all set up with the Plusnet Hub 2 router. I'm now trying to switch back to my TP-Link, but it won't connect. Hoping someone can verify my setup / point out if I'm missing something.
* switched the router's Operation Mode to Wireless Router, and connected the WAN cable from the ONT to the appropriate LAN/WAN port
* connection details:
* Username: <myusername>@plusdsl.net
* Password: <my password for logging into plusnet portal>
* VLAN: Enabled
* VLAN Id: 101
* Connection Type: PPPoE
It fails to connect. In the router logs, I do see a PPP error: "ppp0 Timeout waiting for PADO packets". I have tried reentering username + password, but don't believe it's an issue there.
I've tried throughout the weekend in case, never works. As soon as I connect the Plusnet Hub 2 back, that connects fine.
Fixed! Go to the fix.
Have you tried it without the VLAN enabled? This is only needed when the router is also the modem, but the ONT is now the modem.
