Re: [Internet] Help setting up Sagemcom + DDWRT 2nd router

I have my sagemcom performing PPPOE so that apps on the FibeTV PVR are active (although I hardly ever use them).

My attached Tomato router (version of DDWRT) is also configured to perform PPPOE using the same username and password. Primary and secondary DNS are configured in the Tomato router and are shown as active when an ipconfig /all command is issued from a PC.

Try this configuration.

Oh! you can do that?!

I guess i have to leave PPPOE on the sagemcom then because the Fibe TV features are used sometime, so i can't mess with that then.

However, i did not know i could establish PPPOE twice!
Do i have to reconfigure anything in the wiring? Do i leave the 2nd router connected to the LAN port or connect it to the WAN port? As in Sagemcom WAN to DDWRT LAN or WAN to WAN or LAN to LAN or LAN to WAN? wow, complicated options! lol

Now since the current setup has the DDWRT router with disabled WAN and disabled DHCP, does anything change with that too?

Thanks!

Connect a LAN cable from one of the LAN ports of the sagemcom to the WAN port of the second router. Then log into DDWRT and adjust the configuration for PPPOE and DNS settings.

Hmm tried that and it wouldnt connect for some reason. Would that still work if im using a powerline adapter between both routers?

It should. Are there lights on your DDWRT modem that indicate the WAN is getting a signal?

Also try plugging your PC into the end of the powerline adapter that you connected to the DDWRT (instead of plugging it into the DDWRT). If the PC indicates connectivity then something is wrong with your DDWRT settings.

Yes, WAN light was on. The only other thing maybe i can think of just now is that it needs to be on the same ip range as the Bell router? When i reset the ddwrt ti gets the default 192.168.1.1 but the bell router is on 192.168.2.1 and gives out ip's from 192.168.2.10 to 192.168.2.254

Not sure if that matters

EDIT: other than what i mentionned above, do i need to change anything in the sagemcom side of things? I notice that under network option int he sagemcom it's under VLAN, should that be changed to PPPOE or does not matter for what i am trying to accomplish?

I really hope to get this to work today and be done with! lol

My sagemcom ip address is 192.168.2.1 and my Tomato router is 192.168.1.1 just like your.

No idea where you are seeing VLAN or PPPoE.
