In this tutorial we will help you configure the Sagem routers with the Pepephone ADSL operator.
The router that we have configured with Pepephone ADSL is the Sagem FAST1704 Orange, a router with basic features (Wi-Fi G, Fast-Ethernet, without USB) but that gives an outstanding result in the speed tests with Pepephone ADSL.
Note: A Jota user has tested this tutorial with the Orange Sagem Fast 2604 router and it also works correctly with Pepephone ADSL and the same configuration is done here.
Once we have connected the router to the computer and to the ADSL line, the first thing we have to do is enter with http://192.168.1.1, if the router is recently reset (with factory settings) it will not ask us for a user or key to enter the setup menu.
On the main screen we will see the initial configuration, which will not help us because we have to put @pepephone:
In the menu on the left we go to Advanced Configuration and WAN. If there is any default configuration, click on Delete to create a new one, or on edit, both systems are valid.
The first screen of the configuration wizard asks us to enter the VCI and VPI that we all know, we put it as it is in this image. Then we click on Next.
Now we select PPPoE with LLC encapsulation as we have in this screenshot:
Then we will introduce the username and password of the Pepephone PPPoE connection, as we have on this screen. The options at the bottom are left as they are in the capture (verified that it works).
The following options must be enabled (NAT, Firewall, and WAN). Then we click on next.
Now we will get the typical summary screen of all the configured parameters:
And finally we will see that a new line has been created for us in the WAN configuration table:
In the upper right we can see the synchronization of our ADSL line. With all this, we will already have Internet with Pepephone ADSL.
Note: Users are advised to set the DNS settings of routers to “Automatic”. If we set the DNS to automatic, the DNS that are assigned by default from the network will be used and not the central DNS that could have higher latency due to being further away from the user.
We recommend you visit our router configuration manual where we explain how to configure the wireless part, open ports etc.
