I have tried resetting to the factory state.
I've changed the Edgerouter to 192.168.1.2 (also tried 254)
Vlan tag 101 remains configured in my modem and have tried with and without it on the Edgerouter.
I think I'm making some head way. As I notice my IP address has appeared at the bottom pppoe info now.

Ok, Think I have sussed it now!!
I think part of the issue was with me and plugging my extension cat5e for testing. I was using the two wire method for stats on the Zyxel and used the port which looking in the Zyxel menus was configured for LAN and not WAN.
Factory reset and setup again and away it went!!

Take a moment, pause and then think about the concept of a VLAN (a Virtual LAN).

As it is being used, it has two end-points. The first end-point is way "north" ("upstream") of you. The second end-point should be defined in your modem. No other equipment should know (or needs to know) about that VLAN, with Ethernet frames tagged 101.

Looking a little deeper, but still simplistically, the port on your ZyXEL device (the LAN1 port) is a portal for the ingress and egress of Ethernet frames. (Your local device, producing and consuming Ethernet frames, is the Ubiquiti Edgerouter.) Those frames (with a 101 tag) are then transferred over the VDSL2 (ITU-T G.993.2) link to the cabinet based DSLAM and, keeping things simple, further "north" ("upstream") to the other end-point of the VLAN, where the tags are then removed, leaving the stream of Ethernet frames to be consumed and produced by a device (logically the mirror image of your Edgerouter) in ISP/CP land.

Ah, yes. Inadvertently muddling those two ports would cause precisely the problem you reported. Congratulations on spotting the error and resolving the problem.  :)

I most likely wouldn't have thought about it if it weren't for you kind people getting me to check the VLAN tag. It was then I noticed the WAN disabled on port 4 when I went through further menus. So thank you both for a shove in the right direction.

Also thank you for the information on VLAN's. I think tomorrows task is to set one up on the Zyxel so that I can get my stats via one cable (I was meant to do this when I set it up initially but I subsequently forgot all about it.

Chenks and Shambly, kudos for the recommendation of equipment. Saved me a small fortune on equipment I would have bought. Turns out I do get full signal through the whole houseusing one AC-lite unit. I haven't even popped it through the ceiling, It is just laying on the plasterboard in the loft pointing down at present!!

use the unifi controller software to set up the AP just the way you want.
i have 2 main SSIDS..

1 main (5GHz and 2.4GHz combined) for main devices (192.168.1.x)
1 guest wifi (5Ghz only) with full device isolation (192.168.2.x), which is bandwidth limited on both down and up.

That is exactly what I shall do when I get it all finalised.
I'm still to have a good play about with it but hopefully soon I shall be able to do that.

Question... I've heard of people having issues with Sonos equipment on the Unifi AP's. I believe many got round it by splitting the 2.4 and 5Ghz. Have you heard of anything like this?

don't have any sonos so wouldn't know, but it's easy enough to create multiple SSIDs and enable/disable each radio as required.

i currently have a "test" SSID that is on 2.4GHz only.

Evening all,

Looking for some assistance again with this Edgerouter.
All my sockets are done and master where it needs to be.

However, now it's all hooked up, I'm getting no internet access again.
The only cables I removed were the Wan (eth0) and switch (eth1).
It's giving me my IP address but no access to the internet. I've tried my pc directly into eth1 but nothing.
It feels seems like it's locked down although I've tried setting it up with no firewall and still the same issue.

I've also made a direct connection from my modem to my pc and it seems fine so it's definitely Edgerouter related.
I've been at this since 5pm and I'm starting to get a bit fed up haha.

Never mind, Think that's it sorted now!!
I went through every setting and for some reason it has decided to use itself as the DNS server which was odd. I've no idea why it would change by itself!!

You could try here:

Broadware Hardware Swap Shop

May need to check with a mod. if classification as "Broadband Hardware" is permissable.

Peggs, If you are willing to split, I may take the USG off you.
