TP-Link TD-W8960N - Setup For UniFi
22June'11 - I have to change Vlan.600 (IPTV) priority=0 and vlan.500 (internet) priority=1 in order to work well on my Huawei HG850a BTU. For others who is having problem on IPTV and/or internet, please play around with the priority settings accordingly. Generally, the IPTV should have higher priority (=0) than internet.
20June'11 - Change both Vlan 500 & 600 to use priority=0, hope this will work well on most BTU/VDSL2, thanks Riz !
Hard re-set the device first:
- Unplug all LAN cables, insert power cable & power-on
- Locate the "Reset" button at the back right beside the power, use a sharp object, press and hold (make sure you can feel the press down!)
- Hold at least 20sec, you should see bunch of lights blink once, wait for few seconds, then release the re-set button
- Unplug power cable & power-off, wait for at least 1min, after which may proceed to setup.
