8200AXL-1200 modem-only?

Post by LucasvdB » Mon Aug 02, 2021 12:54 pm

I just ordered the 8200AXL-1200 to replace the old Openreach ECI modem. It has been advertised by various vendors as 'modem-only capable'. That is what I need to connect it to a DECO mesh system. I have now downloaded the full user manual and I cannot see 'IP over Ethernet' configuration that is required for TalkTalk. Should I have ordered the 8800nl r2 instead?

Link below (you need to set the WAN interface to 'Bridge' mode, you might need to also turn off the DHCP server, as you will be using IP Over Ethernet)

Bridge Mode (modem only mode)

Disable DHCP server

Thank you billion_fan.

I'll try to use the right keywords in the search box the next time:)

I'll disable the WiFi too of course, but might use the USB LTE modem facilities in the future.
