DrayTek Vigor 130 Modem


[link to this post]
 
After problems with both my original Huawei and subsequent ECI modem (both excessive frequent disconnects) I have purchased a DrayTek V130 which has not missed a beat since switch on.

What I would like to do is view the stats shown on it and from the booklet this would appear to be on http://192.168.2.1

However, all my networked gear, including the router's set up, uses IP addresses 192.168.1.nnn and I am assuming that this is why I cannot connect to the Modem.

Would I be letting myself in for problems if I disconnect the Modem from the router and connect it directly to a pc, access the modem's interface and change its address to fit in with 192.168.1.nnn

I am guessing that DrayTek have set up the modem's address for a reason?

Thanks.

Cheers!

Even if you change the address to the same range the router won't let you at it as that subnet is handled on the router side not the WAN side. You could temporarily connect a PC to the modem direct and change the PCs addressing to match the subnet of the modem to get the stats at that point.

There are a couple of issues in accessing the Draytek web or command-line interfaces whilst in use - firstly the Draytek has nowhere to enter a gateway address in the UI so will only communicate with devices in the same subnet (192.168.2.x by default), secondly the Draytek is connected to the WAN port on your router which will be configured to connect to your ISP using PPPoE.

Unless you can configure your router to have both an IP address to access the Draytek and a PPPoE client to connect to your ISP at the same time you are stuck - I use a Mikrotik router with ether1 connected to the Draytek, a static IP of 192.168.2.2 and a srcnat rule translating my LAN addresses to 192.168.2.2 for modem access, together with a PPPoE client interface configured to use ether1 to connect to my ISP.

I use the Draytek 130 as well and can connect to it perfectly fine. The 130 is actually a full router with the routing capabilities disabled in software, but it has a perfectly good web interface and telnet as well.

The way I have it configured in my router (pfSense) is that the PPPoE connection and WAN connections manifested as two separate interfaces. While the PPPoE connection is the main 'WAN', it is actually just a tunnel to the ISP. The underlying WAN interface can be configured with separate address space. While the Draytek will give you a DHCP address, it's better to restrict it to just the /29 you need, and have the WAN on 192.168.2.2.

As the modem is on the wrong side of the firewall, you shouldn't need to change any firewall rules, and the router will route from your LAN to your modem (make sure your LAN is using a different address space, obviously!). Then from your PC, just visit http://192.168.2.1 as you need (web interface is very high level on info, but you will need to go there mainly to update firmware). Better information is available via telnet (use PuTTY, in Telnet mode), and login to the prompt. All stats are available by typing 'vdsl status' (for Interleave/FastPath and sync status) and 'vdsl status more' (for FECs etc). Default user/password is admin/admin

Here's mine for example:

Some routers do allow you to have static routes which I would expect to do what the OP wants. - Not that I have tried!

ian72, tdw42 zzing123 and Michael_Chare

Many thanks for the replies.

Looks like it can be done, but not for the uninitiated in IT networks like me.

From DrayTek's Quick Start Guide, they suggest connecting a PC directly to the V130's RJ45. I will resurrect an aged WinXP notebook when I get chance and try that.

(although my signature mentions a DrayTek 2920Vn router, I am currently using a Billion BiPAC 7800N router with a Cisco PAP2T for VoIP)

Thanks again.

Static routes won't help in this case if you cannot have both an IP address AND a PPPoE client on the ethernet port connected to the Draytek - whilst Mikrotik, pfSense, dd-wrt, OpenWrt/LEDE, Linux and xBSD distributions, etc. can do this most domestic routers only allow one 'type' of WAN connection to be set, typically DHCP, static IP, PPPoE or L2TP.

Luckily I had a Raspberry Pi3 lying around and I use that to view my Vigor 130 stats. Firstly I connected the Vigor 130 to a gigabit switch, then connected my router WAN and Pi3 LAN ports to the gigabit switch. I then configured my Pi3 WiFI to be in the same range as my router IP address and made sure it connected to my router and gave me internet access using its browser. I then configured the Pi3 LAN to be on the same IP range of the Vigor 130. With that setup I am able to use VNC viewer on my PC, iPhone or iPad to remote view my Pi3, which in turn allows me to open the Pi3 web browser, put the Vigor 130 IP address in and view my Vigor 130s GUI.
Iím currently trying to find out if I can configure DSLStats running on my Pi3, to obtain stats from the Vigor 130. It should in theory be possible as the Vigor uses telnet, and DSLStats can actually process telnet data. Havenít managed to work it out yet, but I hope I can as I like using DSLStats to view all my modem data.
Obviously you need a gigabit switch and a Pi3 for this setup, but if you have those bits lying around doing nothing, as I did, then why not put them to use.

Which router do you have? This is how I connect to my Vigor 130 from my Asus DSL-AC68U which is on the 192.168.1.X subnet - the method will be similar for other makes of router:

In order to access the Vigor 130 admin webpage you go to WAN -> Internet Connection and under WAN IP Setting click No for "Get WAN IP Automatically". Then enter the following values:

IP Address 192.168.2.2
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.2.1

You should then be able to go to 192.168.2.1 and see the Vigor 130 admin login page.

Was there anything you needed to put into the Asus DSL-AC68U or was it just putting in the above on the Vigor 130?

I've got this currently hooked up to a TP-Link Archer C7 which is on 192.168.0.XXX and cannot access the Vigor 130 GUI, tried getting help from DrayTek to access it but keep hitting a brick wall every time.
