      authentication settings check when using bt or modem

      After finding out I am on an eci cabinet and trying to resolve sync issues I acquired a bt eci modem. The modem connects to the dsl service all ok and the sr102 works fine through it but I cant get my 3rd party router to authenticate. Can someone please clarify if ppoe is correct when using router plus bt or modem. Am I missing something...

      Many thanks!

      Re: authentication settings check when using bt or modem

      Hi

      Its a vr900. Would be nice to know if its meant to be ppoe or dynamic ip for the wan connection. If its dynamic IP the vr900 does not appear to have any way of entering authentication details for the wan config such as option 60/61.

      The router works ok with vdsl direct but due to being on eci cabinet I would like it behind the eci modem for testing.

      Could you clarify for the wan config which should it be .. ppoe or dynamic ip with 60/61

      Many thanks

      Re: authentication settings check when using bt or modem

      Thanks for pm clarifying I need dynamic IP with option 60/61. This is not available on the vr900 wan port config so it would explain why it doesnt work. Odd as they have it on the vdsl direct settings.
      Thanks for clearing it up.
