XG 125 - 18.0.2 MR-2 PPoE Setup Help

Hi, 

I am setting up this for first time and first thing I need to sort out is how to make XG125 dial up by itself. 

TP link router does the PPOE where BTU is Huawei device directly connects to the fiber network.

current

Now when I am connecting XG125, I want the PPoE to be taken up by the firewall  itself. I tried to setup the PPoE settings within XG125 , didnt work. I couldn't find where to start tracing it.

Meanwhile I got the PPoE log from TP-Link router. Anyone can suggest what is the correct setup so that XG125 will be able to establish dial up.

  • Hi,

    are you talking about a dialup using dial tone or are you talking about a PPPOE connection. On the XG the PPPOE connection is setup in the WAN interface.

    You are right, I want XG to do the PPoE, eliminate the TP Link router. 

    Above is my WAN link config, trying to connect PPoE. didn't work. Is there any place in XG to check log of this connection ? 

  • Hi,

    have you put the TP-router into bridge mode or do you have a modem that you can put into bridge mode. The Sophos hardware does not usually come with an inbuilt modem.

  • Hi Ian, 

    Thanks again for your reply. The ISP has a fibre BTU unit, which should have the modem. TP link is just a router whose WAN port is connected to BTU. 

    TP-Link takes care of the PPOE connection establishment. --> this role I want XG to be able to perform when I connect WAN port from XG to broadband BTU device. 

    Is this wrong expectation?

  • Hi,

    I would expect that connection to be a ethernet, not PPPoE. The XG should be able to handle the PPPoE connection.

    I would check the tp-link router configuration.
