BiPAC 7800N beta firmware for SKY (1483MER) NOW WORKING!

Post by admin » Thu Apr 05, 2012 1:47 pm

It has taken us a while but we now have a beta firmware for 7800N that has been tested working with Sky broadband. Sky unlike most UK ISPs uses 1483MER encapsulation and to make it more difficult, they have slightly modified it and therefore the long wait. Information from Skyuser forum was the key and we couldn't have done it without them. Also many thanks to those customers who help us out either by giving us the right information or help out with the testing.

This is currently a working beta release and a offical one should follow in few weeks time.

If you find any connection problem with this firmware, please feel free to report it. But for this firmware we are Only interested in connection related issue and nothing else.

Here are the steps:


1) Login to 7800N via Http.

2) Upgrade the beta firmware

3) Restart to the Factory Default Settings

4) Please choose the protocol as MPoA (RFC1483/RFC2684, Multiprotocol Encapsulation over AAL5)

5) Please enter VCI / VPI as 0/40

5) Please input the client ID as username and password separate with "|" e.g. username|password

This is great news.

I'm on Sky but PPPoA is still working for me but I'm guessing that I'll get switched soon. So no worries for me.

I've upgraded my firmware from 1.06d to this & connect on MER to Sky. So far everything is OK but I'll keep you updated.

Just for information
I am on BE, which also uses "MPoA (RFC1483/RFC2684, Multiprotocol Encapsulation over AAL5)" which has always worked OK.
As that protocol has been modifiedupdated for SKY I thought I would see if it still works on BE, And it still works fine with this firmware.

Looking good so far. I've asked engineers to try and come out with a working solution for BiPAC 7402X series next.

Magic, works a treat, thanks Billion, great work.
Only thing needs changing that i can see, is that the wan status does not show an up time, just up or down. Apart from that perfect.
Cheers to all at Billion, great work.
Regards, Will

As said before great work Billion. :D

I have a question though , will PPPoA still work exactly as before as I was unable to connect with PPPoA when I created a MER & PPPoA ADSL profiles. Could have been me though.

I've gone back to 1.06d until the "official" release is available btw.

Does this new firmware help us on Sky Fibre? If not - now you have "cracked" the mechanism any chance it can be applied for us fibre users?
