  1. Hi, i found your blog on google while trying to find a solution for my own M1 100mbps fibre broadband connection.

    I have the white color ONT, with bundled phone line and the standard HG256 router, which i badly want to replace with the same router that you are using – TP-TLWR1043ND. However, i have personally tried connecting and it failed, without realising the setttings are locked by M1.

    Which led to this OPENWRT topic i found, from what i know is that i flash the firmware on my TPLINK router and then just connect is directly to the ONT without the need of the HG256.

    Can you teach me how to do it? I have the sources to how to flash the firmware to the TPLINK router, my only concern is, once i have flashed the router, do i just connect it to the ONT like a normal router and it should work from there? Or do i have any steps missing.

    Pls advice, i would really appreciate your help!
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Marc,

      If you are using a bundled phone line, chance is that you fall under the group of users with tagged VLAN settings. In this case, I don’t think you can do away with the HG256 router. My friends who are amongst the first batch of M1 users are all tied to this setting. You need to check with M1 on this.

  2. I read somewhere before online that its possible to use openwrt to tag the tplink wr1043nd with vlan settings to m1, is that true? In that case, cant i set the ports to get both the data and voice?
