I've just acquired a new Draytek 2850n and I'm trying to connect it to my Vodafone 76mb line but it doesn't seem to connect to the line. I've done the following:
- Called Vodafone and asked about my PPPoE details
- Set the router tag to 101
- I've tried to clone the Mac address of my previous router too from Vodafone
Nope, it doesnt show anything it's almost like the cable wasn't plugged in but it totally works with my Vodafone router. I've heard of something to do with Openreach supporting some routers and not others?
I've used several Draytek 2850s on Openreach FTTC without any issue whatsoever. Are you getting synchronization? If not, try a different cable as not all RJ11 cables are wired the same and you may have managed to switch to one that's different.
I would reset the router to factory defaults
Use the RJ11 cabled supplied with the router
Use the power supply that came with router
I would manually add the username and password
The default MAC address vale has to something other than 0.0.0.0
WAN Connection Detection setting should be PPP Detect
WAN >> General Setup WAN1 - Are you sure VDSL only is correct?
Change the Display Name to a single word
LAN >> General Setup - Screen dump of that page whould have been handy
The router IS suitable for what we wiah to achieve but could of course have a manufactoring fault,
