      Technicolor TG589vn v3 With Sky Fibre Broadband.

      I just got this router working on a Sky Fibre broadband line, as a 1 box solution.
      Its a cheap device, but I'd take this device over any other. I really love this box.

      Forget about configuring the WAN config using the GUI. Its impossible.
      All this configuration is done with the Telnet CLI. You should be able to do it on any firmware that comes with the TG589vn v3.
      Open a telnet CLI to the TG589vn v3 (using putty or your favourite terminal emulator).


      Before you run this script make sure you change it to include your own PPP username and password.

      >telnet 192.168.1.254
      Username: Administrator
      Password: <BLANK> <- as in by default, there is no password. If this is not the case, check with whoever gave you the router.

      Clear the existing configuration:
      (Some commands might fail if the command isn't relevant to the running configuration.)

      CLEAR OLD CONFIG:
      : ppp relay flush
      : ppp flush
      :eth flush
      :eth bridge ifdelete intf=vdsl2 <this command may fail. Don't worry if it does.

      MAKE NEW CONFIG:
      :eth vlan add name=vlan_Internet vid=101 addrule=disabled
      :eth ifadd intf=eth_vdsl
      :eth ifconfig intf=eth_vdsl dest=efmif1 vlan=default
      :eth ifconfig intf=eth_vdsl wan=enabled priotag=disabled
      :eth ifattach intf=eth_vdsl
      :eth ifadd intf=eth_tag
      :eth ifconfig intf=eth_tag dest=eth_vdsl vlan=vlan_Internet
      :eth ifconfig intf=eth_tag wan=enabled priotag=disabled
      :eth ifattach intf=eth_tag
      :ip ifadd intf=Internet dest=eth_tag
      :ip ifconfig intf=Internet mtu=1500 group=wan linksensing=enabled ipv6 disabled
      :ip ifattach intf=Internet
      :dhcp client debug traceconfig state=disabled
      :dhcp client ifadd intf=Internet
      :dhcp client ifconfig intf=Internet metric=5 dnsmetric=5 broadcast=enabled serverroute=disabled followlabel=disabled
      :dhcp client rqoptions add intf=Internet option=subnet-mask
      :dhcp client rqoptions add intf=Internet option=dhcp-lease-time
      :dhcp client rqoptions add intf=Internet option=dhcp-renewal-time
      :dhcp client rqoptions add intf=Internet option=dhcp-rebinding-time
      :dhcp client rqoptions add intf=Internet option=classless-static-routes
      :dhcp client rqoptions add intf=Internet option=default-routers
      :dhcp client rqoptions add intf=Internet option=classfull-static-routes
      :dhcp client rqoptions add intf=Internet option=domain-name-servers
      :dhcp client txoptions add intf=Internet option=dhcp-client-identifier value=(ascii)PPPusername|PPPpassword
      :dhcp client ifattach intf=Internet
      :nat ifconfig intf=Internet translation=enabled


      MAKE LED'S FUNCTION CORRECTLY:
      :system config WANMode=VDSL
      :system config defaultconnection=Internet

      SAVE THE CONFIGURATION:
      :saveall

      REBOOT THE DEVICE:
      Sometimes when configuring VLANs on the Technicolor devices, you need to reboot before the configuration takes effect.
      :system reboot

      And thats it!
      You now have a 1 box solution for sky fibre broadband. I find that the sync rate of the TG589vn v3 is a little better than the Huawei BT OR box.

      You can cut and paste these commands into a notepad and run them all in one go and you can be up and running in about 30 seconds.
      I'm fairly certain this will work on any Technicolor VDSL device.
