Hi, Just wondering if anyone has set up there XR500 with a Draytek vigor 130 and Sky broadband, currently use BT with this set up but wanted to know if it is straight forward with SKY`s 61 set up, due to BT prices going up again was considering a move.

Thanks

Not really as Sky don't give username and password out, there are guides on the net about how to extract the username and password for ADSL For VDSL Id follow these guides. You will probably need to use Wireshark http://www.skyuser.c...ssword-mac.html

Might have to research a bit more to see if the Vigor 130 is able to do the 61 authentication,I know the modem does support Sky, with bt it’s just plug and play ,alternatively might be able to to use there the sky equipment and then the xr500 but would not be to happy doing that. I will read that info though. Cheers

Well got my answer .... this is a modem that does not perform authentication, the router connected to it needs to support DHCP Option 60 & 61. The modem must be configured in MPoA Bridge mode.

Now I know the XR500 does not support option 60 and 61 unlike Asus,well from when I owned R7800..... Correct me if I am wrong please.

 

Thanks
