Some ISPs in the UK use different network configurations from the BT Openreach network. This will usually be in areas where a telecom provider other than BT Openreach is providing the VDSL2 connection.

This setup guide demonstrates how to configure DrayTek VDSL2 modem and router products for use with the ISP Karoo.

These instructions will explain how to configure the DrayTek router to connect to the ISP and establish an Internet connection.

The configuration in this guide requires connecting the VDSL2 line to the DrayTek router's WAN1 DSL port and the DSL LED should be continually lit on the router to indicate that it has sync with the line.

1. Access the DrayTek router's web interface via your web browser, which will be accessible on by default. Enter the username of "admin" and the default password of "admin".

2. Browse to [WAN] > [General Setup], click [WAN1] and set the VLAN Tag insertion (VDSL2) setting to Disable.
The DSL mode can be set to "VDSL2 only" to speed up sync times but this is not required.
Click OK on that page to apply the changes.

4. Select the Enable radio button at the top of the page to ensure that the PPPoE interface is enabled. Input the username into the Username field and password in the Password field, as required.

The Service Name does not need to be specified.

Click OK on this page to apply the changes and the router will then prompt to restart. Click OK to restart the router.
