SOME third-party TalkTalk routers fail to get an IP (fibre)


[link to this post]
 
I have a very strange issue with TalkTalk fibre.

Using the HG612 in routing mode (i.e. as a modem and router), it gets an IP from TalkTalk using DHCP and the Internet works.

Using a ZyXel VMG8324, sync is acheived but the router cannot get an IP. Different firmwares have been tried, it's setup correctly to request an IP via DHCP but it just doesn't get one.

Using a Billion 8800NL, sync is acheived but the router also cannot get an IP.

The TalkTalk routers (Huawei HG635, Huawei HG633) get an IP.

What is going on?

Try setting the VLAN to 101 and may also need 8021P to "0" and last but not least try changing the MTU to 1492

Don't know if it makes any difference (doesn't on my 8800NL) but the talktalk supplied router has the 8021P set to 2.

Ah yes this does all ring a bell.

Why do you have to do that again?
