Been trying endlessly to setup a new TP-Link TD-W8980 so it will connect to EE. However, after copying all the settings from the Brightbox Router it STILL will not working.
I'm on fibre optic so settings I've tried are:
VPI - 0
VCI - 32
All other settings I've left as default.
The router comes with a set of ISP preconfigured settings but I've tried the whole list without success.
I've tried calling EE's "So called" support team, but all they know about routers is how to enter your username and password.
The TP-Link's TD-W8980 N600
is an ADSL2+ modem-router. You will have to disable the TP-Link’s modem, to do this disable the DHCP. What you really need is a cable wireless router.
You could connect the TP-Link to your Bright Box router and the Bright Box router connected to the BT Openreach fibre modem.
Settings for connecting to EE Fibre broadband using your own cable wireless router connected to the BT Openreach modem... http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing-accessories/n...
The settings you'll need to connect your own cable router are below:
Protocol: PPPoE (over Ethernet)
Broadband username: Format similar to yourname.orangehome.co.uk@fs
Broadband password: You chose this when you first registered, and it was confirmed in the welcome email
Other settings can usually be left blank, or at the router's default setting.
We've listed some common settings which may help if you're having problems:
Internet IP address: e.g. Dynamic, Auto or Obtain from ISP (we'll assign you an IP address when you connect)
DNS IP address: e.g. Dynamic, Auto or Obtain from ISP (we'll automatically provide these when you connect)
MTU: 1492 or 1500
MAC address: (leave blank/ disabled)
