Some time ago I got Sky Fibre (March/April 2014), and one of their SR102 router things. It was ok, but didn't do as much as I wanted (reduced functionality from myDraytrek 2820 I was using on LLU), so I bought a HG612 and plugged it into WAN2 of my Draytek and after some tinkering all was well (took ages to connect - several hours, I think.... *mac address* maybe).
Anyway, I have a weird connectivity issue to do with XK for work (I've posted in the DSL hardware forum about). I tried reverting back to Sky default setup by using the SR102, but that just failed to connect (left it a good 30+ minutes and still nothing). Reverted back to the HG612 + Draytek and got an immediate connection. Over the weekend I then built a pfsense router on a space PC with 2 NICs, but that would not get a DHCP address from Sky until I cloned in the MAC of the Draytek unit into it.
Using pfsense didn't fix the issue (with XK), so I am thinking I really need to remove the HG612 from the loop (only thing I have't changed) and get back to the standard Sky setup. That leaves me with 2 options:
- turn everything off for n hours, and then try SR102
- remove RJ11 cable from HG612 to SR102 and leave powered on, hope it connects after n hours.
Any idea which approach might be better? and how long n hours might be
(I should say that the XK issue has only occurred in the last 6 months, before that it was fine. In that time, nothing had changed at home, so I am not sure it is even *my* fault, but I need to rule everything out, as work typically say it isn't them at fault).
