Plusnet fibre with Youview+ using Tplink vr900 router

I have had fibre extra for a couple of years now and using the router Tplink Archer V900 with two homeplugs one for router and two others dotted around house both have twin Ethernet and wireless builtin. I just ordered today youview+ with HD extra. They told me on phone plusnet dont support this routers which is fair enough. They sending me the new router but rather use this one as I only just got it.
I cant find much to say whether it works with plusnet youview other than a review on amazon saying it does with latest firmware which i have.
Can anyone who has youview with plusnet and Vr900 confirm it works for me. Router does have IPTV is settings and has built in Vdsl modem. The router does support
Advanced Functions: Parental Control, Network Address Translation(NAT), Port Mapping(Grouping), Static Routing, RIP v1/v2(optional), DNS Relay, DDNS, IGMP V1/V2/V3
Thanks

Re: Plusnet fibre with Youview+ using Tplink vr900 router

This post refers to the VR200, but may help as a pointer. Other TP=Link devices (eg TD-W9980) have everything set up as default. I would suggest plugging directly into the VR900 to set up the box as that confirms operation before using homeplugs.
