Bridge mode and unifi.

Hello, 

 

Im wondering if anyone can help me! 

 

I have recently switched to plustnet from VM (moved house) and Im looking to use my Unifi set up with plusnet. I understand the plusnet hub doesnt support bridge mode, so I bought a TP link W9970, but I cant seem to get it to work in bridge mode (going through the instructions on the TP link website actually dont allow me to put in my PN username and password...) 

 

Id really appreciate any advice anyone has.

In bridge mode you don't enter your username and password into the w9970, you need to set your router to PPPoE and enter your username & password into that.

Re: Bridge mode and unifi.

No problem, shout up if you still have problems. I use a w9970 myself in bridge mode in front of a Draytek router and it works pretty well.
