OpenWRT eircom settings

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

Because I’ve been on a OpenWRT buzz, I wanted to use an old D-Link DSL/Router for OpenWRT.

I was ripping my hair out trying to figure out why I couldnt get DSL to sync. It turns out that I was using a variable voltage adaptor and I should have been giving 12V but i was only giving 6V! Anyway once i upped the voltage DSL started to sync.

For anyone else that wants to use OpenWRT with eircom use the following settings in /etc/config/network:


config 'interface' 'loopback'
	option 'ifname' 'lo'
	option 'proto' 'static'
	option 'ipaddr' '127.0.0.1'
	option 'netmask' '255.0.0.0'

config 'interface' 'lan'
	option 'type' 'bridge'
	option 'ifname' 'eth0'
	option 'proto' 'static'
	option 'ipaddr' '192.168.2.1'
	option 'netmask' '255.255.255.0'
	option 'nat' '1'

config 'atm-bridge'
	option 'unit' '0'
	option 'encaps' 'llc'
	option 'vpi' '8'
	option 'vci' '35'
#	option 'payload' 'routed'

config 'interface' 'wan'
	option 'ifname' 'nas0'
	option 'proto' 'pppoe'
	option 'encaps' 'llc'
	option 'vpi' '8'
	option 'vci' '35'
	option 'keepalive' '5,20'
	option 'username' 'eircom@eircom.net'
	option 'password' 'broadband1'
