I've ordered a basic Dynamode BR-6004W-G-N router of Amazon, although it is basic it is much better then the current Netgear router which has a very limited selection of user controls.
When attempting to connect it up to the Internet, my ISP (Cable and Wireless Guernsey) uses PPPoA/VC/VCMux Encapsulation (ISP Settings) however the router only allows me to select:
Dynamic IP Address (I have a Dynamic IP from my ISP)
I'm not sure which one to select, I've tried Dynamic IP which gives me the option of enabling 'BigPond' but I can't get it to connect to the Internet. Is it going to be the case of either swapping the firmware or buying a new router?
hi, did you enter the router setup and make the manual seeting as suggested in the link you provided us ,instruction on how to get to the routers setup are also in the link ,see below
Router settings If you are using your own equipment rather than one supplied by Sure you will need to use the below router settings to set up your broadband. Please refer to your individual router manual for the connection process:
are you finding those settings you list by going into the router settings ,this way When connected open your web browser (e.g. Internet explorer, Chrome or Firefox) and type 192.168.1.254 in the address bar and press enter. if yes ,then i think it may be that you cand make the correct settings on the router you bought ,
