Setup 7800DXL as Modem Only (Utility Warehouse)

Post by Accomplice » Sat Oct 02, 2021 5:08 pm

Hi,

I currently have a Billion 7800DXL (with latest firmware) acting as the sole modem/router for standard internet (no fibre) provided by Utility Warehouse. I would like to improve my WiFi coverage, so have purchased 3 TP-Link Deco M5s. I need to setup the 7800DXL as a modem only, then use the Decos to create a WiFi mesh.

I have attempted to follow the steps as shown in this post: http://www.billion.uk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9539 but am struggling as the configuration page no longer looks like this. I have tried via "Wireless 2.4G" -> "Wireless Bridge" but ended up with the 7800DXL in bridge mode and no internet connection with the Deco connected with an ethernet cable into the EWAN port.

The settings provided by Utility Warehouse to use are my unique ISP username/password (which I have) and the following:

Standard Broadband
• Connection Type: PPPoA
• Encapsulation: VC–MUX
• VPI/VCI Settings: 0/38
• DNS Settings: Auto or Primary: 62.24.128.17/Secondary 62.24.128.18

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
