I have just bought a TP Link Archer VR900 router and want to put my Hub 3 into modem mode.
I have set everything up and deselected modem mode within the hub. Logging into the the Archer, it’s asking for the username and password provided by my ISP. I have used both my web login details (for accessing virgin media online), and the router password (no username). After going through the setup it says it cannot connect to the internet.
Live trued all the ports on the hub and rebooted in various sequences in line with other advice here. Any help would be much appreciated. I’ve pasted my hub info page below if that helps......this is the original state
Thanks. I guess my question remains around the username. Which one should I use?
In terms of if this is the right type of router.....I dropped into one of these boards and picked up what others were using.
VM doesn't authenticate via username and password, it just passes the IP address through to your router.
During the setup under "Connection Type" there should be an option for "IPoE" or "IP over Ethernet" that is what you need to select, "PPPoE" or "PPPoA" won't work.
I've looked up the manual for your router and this is basically all you need to do.
If you already have a modem or your internet comes via an Ethernet jack on the wall, you can set up the modem router as a regular wireless router to share the internet.
1 Find the WAN port (labeled as LAN4/WAN) on the modem router, and connect it to your existing modem or the Ethernet jack on the wall. Then connect the power adapter and turn on the modem router. If you connect an existing modem, reboot it to get the modem router connected to the internet.
2 Connect your computer to the modem router. For details, refer to Connect Your Modem Router.
3 Visithttp://tplinkmodem.net, and log in with the account you set for the modem router.4 Go to Advanced > Operation Mode, select the Wireless Router Mode, and click Save. The modem router will reboot.
