Author Topic: ECI Openreach OpenWrt with sky login unable to connect to router  (Read 314 times)

I have flashed OpenWrt onto my ECI Openreach modem and have got it setup so the modem is able to ping the internet by using the wan_bridge on the modem to input my sky login credentials using the DHCP Client protocol. I cannot now get the correct settings to connect my router to the modem. The router is running DD-WRT and I seem unable, no matter what static IPs I set in relation to the modem and various settings I play with, I cannot get any connection to the modem from the router. I am starting to wonder if my setup of using the wan_bridge to have the login credentials will work at all. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get this working? This is getting a bit beyond my skill level now with networking so I'd just like it working then once I have something working I can play around to get it setup nicely for me.
Here are my interface settings on the modem:

root@ECIOpenreachModem:~# cat /etc/config/network

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

config globals 'globals'
        option ula_prefix 'fd88:f59f:8b1e::/48'

config interface 'wan_bridge'
        option type 'bridge'
        option ifname 'eth0 ptm0.101'
        option _orig_ifname 'eth0 ptm0.101'
        option _orig_bridge 'true'
        option proto 'dhcp'
        option clientid '376334636135623'                  (Partially cut out)
        option vendorid '6.14.1aN_UNI|PCBAFAST2504Nv1.0'
        option delegate '0'

config interface 'lan'
        option ifname 'eth1'
        option force_link '1'
        option proto 'static'
        option netmask ''
        option ip6assign '60'
        option ipaddr ''
        option gateway ''
        option dns ''

config vdsl 'dsl'
        option annex 'a'
        option firmware '/lib/firmware/vdsl.bin'
        option tone 'av'
        option xfer_mode 'ptm'

config interface 'WAN'
        option ifname 'eth0'
        option _orig_ifname 'eth0'
        option _orig_bridge 'false'
        option proto 'static'
        option ipaddr ''
        option netmask ''
        option gateway ''

And a picture of the WAN setup on the router:
