Re: Using a UK router on Swisscom

View Post
What settings have you put into the router? VPI / VCI, username / password etc?

edit: don't post username and password! Am just interested to know if you've set them
VCI 35

(these are the settings for CH.)

The user name and password are taken from Swisscom router settings, under "if using a third party router....." They are not the usual ones. Basically, ac_my email address, and a password which goes with this.

On the Netgear Basic Settings page, I get the question "Does your internet connection require a login?" Not sure about that, but I am normally logged in by default. There are different options depending on the answer.

If yes, login and password are needed
If no, account name and domain name (if required)

Encapsulation is either PPPoE or PPPoA. I chose the first option.

The DNS servers, gateway options and IP address are normally added automatically when connected.

Swisscom can help if I sign up to a package to include technical support.
