Draytek 2820 not connecting to Vigor 120 ADSL modem on WAN2, no response from server
We swapped a Draytek Vigor 120 ADSL modem (188.8.131.52) in place of the Technicolor. Line sync was ok, in fact faster than the TG582n, esp the uplink which doubled up from 512k to 1Mbps. Bonus! However it wouldn't connect from the 2820 router using the WAN2 PPPoE setup. This is a PPPoE to PPPoA bridged mode.
On the Online Status > Physical Connection you could see the PPP connection starting, but followed by a 'No response from the server' error.
Took a little while to identify - make sure the Vigor 120 modem has DHCP enabled on the LAN screen. Doh!
