7800DXL and Sky ADSL settings

Post by Brucie » Sun Oct 25, 2020 7:13 pm

My parents have an old SR101, i want to replace it with a Billion 7800DXL

I have retrieved the login details and put them in the Option 61 client ID, selected IP over Ethernet, set up options for VPI/VCI(0/40), changed the Encapsulation mode to VC/MUX

I can get a line rate but no connection, can anyone help please?

For a ADSL connection you need the following

1. ATM >> PPPoA connection
2. VPI/VCI - 0/38
3. Enter your Sky username and password in the sections provided

Or to make it easier

1. Reset the unit back to factory default settings
2. Click on 'Configuation >> WAN >> WAN Settings'
3. Click on the 'Edit' button for the ATM >> PPPoA interface
4. Enter your sky username and password in the sections provided
5. Click on 'Apply'
