Bought a new TP LINK ARCHER D2

Hi, all of the Virgin media community. - I am hoping someone could give me some insight on how I would be able to set up the TP LINK Archer D2 with the super hub 3, when I try and do automatic setup it is asking for a PPPoe username and password which I have no idea about, I thought I just had to connect it and it would allow me to access the internet. Has anyone else had any issues doing the same thing and if you have fixed it what did you do? - I have tried also changing the dynamic dns settings and still no prevail? - If anyone can assist please help 

 

Thank you!

One of the ports will list LAN\WAN but before you use it you need to config the router for wireless router mode using that port.

1 Put the Hub 3 into modem mode

2 Power on TP Link and connect PC to one of the TPLink's LAN Ports.

3 Open a browser on the PC and type in 182.168.1.1 into the addess bar. This should open up the log in page on the TPLink. Default user name and password should be admin. (It would be wise to change the password)

4 You should see a menu on left hand side. Click Operation Mode.

5 Click the Wireless Router Box and save.

6 Log out of TP Link interface and switch off.

7 Connect an Ethernet cable from the port closest to the Coax cable on the hub 3 (I think on Hub 3 any port will work) to the EWAN port of the TPLinkArcher-D2-ewanjpg.jpg

8 Power on Hub 3 and wait for it to obtain a connection to the Internet.

9 Power on TP Link and wait for lights to settlr down.

10 Connect PC to a LAN port on TPLink and set up wireless network and configure TP Link  to your preferences

AFAIK the TP LINK Archer D2 is an ADSL device...

Re: Bought a new TP LINK ARCHER D2

You have bought an ADSL modem \ Router. As a VM customer you do not need the modem part so you can try Bridge Mode and put the Hub 3 into Modem only mode. The TP Link then should work as a router only, You may need to power cycle and TPLink once set up.

EDit just seen Kippies post and has reminded me that you will need to connect the hub to the EWAN port on the TP Link. (EWAN ports have caught me out before)

Re: Bought a new TP LINK ARCHER D2

and that will allow me to use the router with a fibre connection? - Is it just plug n play or do I need to configure it?

Re: Bought a new TP LINK ARCHER D2

Excellent support from the community but .....

 

...personally, I'd have taken it back and asked for the correct cable version, the C2, which is cheaper.
