    VDSL Modem

    The modem is not manageable, and the PPPoE settings are set in the router.

    VDSL Modem

    Hi people, I took delivery, today, of a used BT Openreach VDSL modem. I connected it to the power and plugged in the DSL cable to the modem. I then plugged an ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port on my Linksys wireless router. Using the PPPoE settings provided by the ISP, I cannot connect to the internet. The router will not be able to connect to the ISP. If I use my ASUS VDSL wireless router in VDSL mode and bridged mode, it works straight away. If the modem is set to bridged mode, it should also work, but doesn’t. Any ideias? My ISP is not BT, but that wouldn’t matter, as all the modem is doing, is converting the analog DSL signal to something the router can see, an ethernet output. Thanks, Bruno.
  3. It's a TN panel. It will probably look disgusting, colour-wise. Have a look at "TN vs IPS vs VA" on YouTube, and find out which one is best for you.

    I'm using the web interface. Nevermind, the interface is configured below. I completely missed that bit. Thanks.

    Yes, however, on the tutorial, when the WLAN interface is created and a Network Interface is assigned to it, the Guest Network Interface is already created, and that would be the important bit.

    Hello all, I have installed OpenWRT on my new router and configured the LAN and Wireless networks. The OpenWRT router is connected to a DSL router and uses this router to get internet connection from. It uses to connect to the DSL router. The OpenWRT router's LAN IP is and devices connected to it, wired or wirelessly, get a 10.230.0.X IP address and the internet works, which is what I want. However, I wanted a Guest Wi-Fi network that has access to the internet, but is completely isolated from the network, and uses a different range, such as How would I do this in OpenWRT? Do I need a VLAN? I really don't know much about VLANs, and my networking knowledge is about average. I'd appreciate any help. Many thanks, Bruno.
  7. While cloning works fine (apart from when it doesn't and it doesn't want to boot into Windows, and you need to rebuild the boot partition), it's always best to reinstall the OS. The reason why I say this, is because I worked at an IT company as an Engineer, and whenever I got a job where I had to clone an old hard drive to an SSD, while being much easier, as you keep literally everything the way it was. However, I find that most of the times, the newly cloned SSD will not be that much faster than an old Hard Drive. I do not really have an explanation for this, nor I've done any research. Either way, if you can, a new install is just better. The way I do it on my desktop PC, I'll keep all my data on a Hard Drive, and the boot SSD will only contain programs and games. Even my downloads will save to the Hard Drive, and this means I can reinstall the OS on my SSD without losing any data.
  8. If you buy from Steam, the game would be added to your library, and you could download it whenever you want. I'm not sure what the price difference is as to buying from Steam or PUBG directly, but I'd recommend buying from Steam, instead, if it's not much more expensive.
  9. I was inclined to say you had VERY bad luck with those two new boards, but if that's not the case, I don't know what could be happening. Why would it fry two new motherboards, but not the one you were previously using? Make sure that there is nothing that could be damaging the board. I had a friend who built a PC a few years back, and his motherboard died. I gave him a motherboard I had, which was the same socket, and it died too. We found that one of the molex connectors had the pins sticking out of the connector, and were touching the case, and shorting the motherboard. The motherboard I gave him, was pretty dead, however, the one he owned started working again, after leaving the CMOS battery out for a good 10 minutes. Try that.
  10. Before I moved into a different country, where I currently am living, I had a FTTP connection, and I don't really know what happened in the "background" (will watch the video, which explains it), the fibre cable that came into the house, would go into a Huawei ONT Router and it required no configuration at all. Anyway, thanks for the answer. Certainly very detailed and I'm now less dumb.
  11. That is interesting indeed. I hope I didn't misunderstand anything, as it was indeed a very quick research.
  12. I did not know for sure they didn't have a web interface. I asked a seller on eBay, and that's what he told me. I found it weird, but I could not find anything related to that on a Google research. This is exactly the answer I was looking for. So, the modem would "convert" the DSL connection to Ethernet, and I'd configure my router to use PPPoE with my ISP-provided email and password? Just to be clear, what exactly is the modem doing? Since it only grabs the DSL and gives me an Ethernet output, is it doing any more than just converting the type of cable? I'm sorry if this sounds dumb, but I'm really curious as to what's it doing. And how would it be if it were a fibre connection?
  13. I will definitely mess around with PFSense. It honestly sounds very interesting, and will see what I could do with it by creating a VM on my desktop. I ended up purchasing the Lynksys router, which is "ready" for open source software, and, after a quick research, it seems like I can actually install PFSense on the Lynksys router.
  14. Hi all, At home, I have a VDSL service from my ISP. To have an internet connection, I connect the "telephone" cable (RJ11 cable), coming from the DSL filter, and plug it to the router, which can be provided by the ISP, or third-party, in my case, and then, in the router settings I change the mode to VDSL and type in the email and password provided by the ISP, and I'll have an internet connection. I suspect my router it's on its way out, or maybe it just can't cope with my network, and I have purchased a new one. However, the new one, is not a VDSL router. It uses a WAN port for the internet connection, so, obviously, I will not be able to plug in the DSL cable to it and configure the ISP settings. How would I approach this? I could get a modem, which would output an ethernet connection for the new router, however, the modems I've seen on ebay, are these Huawei VDSL/Fibre modems that apparently only work in bridge mode, and don't have a web interface. Would it be possible to use these with my new router? And what exactly do they do, since there are no settings? Do they just convert a DSL cable to RJ45 Ethernet?
  15. Yes, re-do your thermal paste application. Check if you've put enough, and make sure that you tighten all the screws with the right amount of force. Also, when you take it apart, you should check the thermal paste imprint and see how it spreaded, so you know what you've done wrong.
