I have a BT (UK) Fibre 1 plan which I believe is probably "VDSL/FTTC". At the moment I am operating the Archer A7 in essentially a poor man's bridge mode with the ISP supplied router (BT Smart Hub 2).
Is it possible to connect the Archer A7 directly to the internet line coming in? I have tried configuring it with the VDSL settings from the isp configuration page but I simply get
pppoe timeout waiting for pado packets. From searching the forum is seems like this is pretty generic error.
Before I attempt to debug further I though I would ask the stupid question, is this actually possible with the Archer A7? I'm finding it a bit confusing whether or not you need a seperate modem in this situation or not.
Thanks for any help.
