Generic Routing Settings

For those using the Zyxel Prestige Series Router, please see the zyxel help pages


The basic BT settings for all makes and models of SDSL Router for internet connectivity are as follows:

Standard Mode / Operating Mode: ETSI (Annex_B)
Encapsulation: PPPoA
Multiplex: VC
Virtual Path Identifier(VPI): 0 (Zero)
Virtual Channel Identifier(VCI): 38
IP Address: Obtain IP Address Automatically // IP Address Negotiated

If you have a service with multiple static IP addresses, then these should be set-up on the LAN side of your router. Your routers IP address would then be visible to the internet.

You may need DNS servers, the pairs that follow are BT maintained DNS servers and are very reliable.
Pair One
194.72.9.34
194.72.9.38
Pair Two
62.6.40.162
