Note:This article applies to TD-W8968 V1, if it’s V2,please click here. We will take TD-W8968 V1 as example in this article.The steps are the same for other listed models.
Before starting the configurations on TD-W8968, users have to know the IPTV related parameters from ISP. This guide is NOT suitable for the IPTV Application which requires Vlan-binding or some other special settings needed other than the below example shows.
Here we assume the IPTV parameters are as below:
Connection Type: Bridge
Encapsulation Mode: LLC
ATM QoS Type: UBR
Also, we will configure LAN4 as an IPTV port.
Step 1: Add Bridge Interface for IPTV.
Login the Web Management Page of TD-W8968 by http://192.168.1.1. (Default username & password: admin, admin.)
Go to Network->WAN Settings; add a Bridge interface for IPTV.
Note: Up to eight WAN Interfaces can be added. If you fail to add a new bridge, you may have to delete the unused interfaces (or delete the one that use the same VPI/VCI) then do it again.
Fill in the information: VPI=8, VCI=32, Choose WAN Connecion Type as “Bridge”. For advanced settings, click “Advance” on the right side. Then you can configure the Encapsulation mode and ATM QoS Type etc.
Save it and the added bridge interface will be shown as below:
Step 2: Add a New Group for IPTV
Go to Network->Interface Grouping. Click “Add”,
Name the Group as “IPTV”, then add LAN4 and br_8_32_1 to the same group. Save it.
After save, you will see a new IPTV group added. It has br_8_32_1 as WAN and LAN4 as LAN.
Step 3: Disable DHCP for IPTV Group
Go to DHCP Server->DHCP Settings, Edit the IPTV Group and disable DHCP.
Save it and IPTV Group’s DHCP status becomes disabled.
Till now, everything is done and your IPTV device could be connected to LAN4 and you could start enjoying IPTV. (LAN 4 can only be used as IPTV port after all the above settings.)
