Re: New Asus DSL-AC88U works Great with Plusnet

All the smiles have gone now, up and running, surfing and good wireless connectivity, sadly I cant get the router to work

with LAN IPTV to watch paid services ie BT Sport via PlusNet Youview box .... with its settings very limited compared to the dsl-ac68u, which I have resorted back to until a new firmware, be nice to know if someone can get it working with the original firmware  and post some settings.

Still No firmware update to view PlusNet Youview Paid Services... resorting to using AsusDSL-AC68U

Update SUCCESS on getting to work BT SPORT + HD IPTV Paid PlusNet channels to work at last...

this router is now much better than the previous mediate chipset router dsl-ac68u... sync's better and

has some how a better speed imho the new router uses a Broadcom chipset.

@mharvo

Congratulations on getting the IPTV working.

Would you care to share the settings for future reference should anyone else want to use this device and have working IPTV? It seems to be a black art to get IPTV to work.

Used Quick Internet Setup, UK ISP PlusNet VDSL + Youview TV username and password. Set up Wifi

These are my settings from screen shots hope this helps, was sent zip file from Asus to load onto my firmware

which works, should then be uploaded into the next update upgrade firmware as one from Asus website.WAN Settings.pngWAN-Internet Connection.pngWAN-Bridge Settings.pngLAN-IPTV Settings.png

My Youview box is connected by Ethernet cable to Lan Port 1 for this to work correctly as in the screen setting for Wan Bridge Internet Connection if you use another LAN Port it will NOT Work... hope this helps you understand the setup.

@mharvo Have you seen that .351 is available?

Forget that, seen some of your posts there!

Yes if anyone has this router you NEED Build 351 to get perfect service with PlusNet and PlusNet IPTV PAID Services

these screen shots will BE NO LONGER WORKABLE due to NEW/Latest Firmware.

Re: New Asus DSL-AC88U works Great with Plusnet IPTV Services !!

Just got the DSL-AC88U and updated the firmware to Build 351, wouldn't detect my Plusnet VDSL line, and on inputting the details manually it connects but reports as being Annex B, also doesn't see all my devices in network map and those it does it won't let me change the name or icons of the devices.

I'm coming from a DSL-AC68U on the latest firmware and it seems more usable at present, anybody still on Build 350 with the DSL -AC88U that can confirm they are having the same issues as me before I try flashing the older firmware..?

 

Cheers

Have a look here, it would appear that Annex B is correct.

I also can't change device name in build 351.
