TalkTalk Broadband connections include FTTP and FTTC connections, configurations on the Deco vary depending on the connections available at your home.

FTTP (Fiber to the Premises, Full fiber)

If you are a FTTP or Full fiber customer, it’s likely you’ll have an Openreach modem (or ONT, fiber modem) installed inside your house. You can connect the Deco to the ONT.

Please connect Deco to the Ethernet port of the ONT with an Ethernet cable and follow the in-app instructions.

At the step where to enter your internet connection type and VLAN ID, Please select “Dynamic IP” and turn “IPTV/VLAN Settings” off.

FTTC (Fiber to the Cabinet, or VDSL)

If you are a FTTC or VDSL customer, it’s likely you’ll be provided a TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub (DSL modem router). It is recommended to use Deco with TalkTalk hub in preference, or you can use Deco X20-DSL, Deco X50-DSL or Deco X73-DSL to replace your TalkTalk Hub.

Option 1 use Deco with TalkTalk Wi-Fi hub

TalkTalk do not have the option to put their hubs in Bridge mode, you can simplify connect Deco to the Ethernet port of the TalkTalk hub with an Ethernet cable and follow the in-app instructions.

You will have double NAT in the network this way. If you’d like to avoid double NAT, you can then set up the Deco into AP mode, while you may note that you will lose some advanced features of Deco if Deco works in AP mode.

Once completed, it’s suggested to disable the Wi-Fi of the TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub to reduce interference to the Deco’s wireless network. If you find yourself stuck while turning off the wireless signal, our advice is to reach out to the TalkTalk support team.

Option 2 replace TalkTalk Wi-Fi hub with Deco (only when you have Deco X20-DSL, Deco X50-DSL or Deco X73-DSL)

You firstly reach out TalkTalk to confirm if your connection type is dynamic IP and VLAN ID is 101 or not.

And then please connect the landline/telephone line to Deco’s DSL port, and then follow the in-app instructions.

At the step where asks “how do you want to use your Product?” Please select “Use as a DSL Modem Router”.

At the step where to “Choose your current region and ISP”, select “TalkTalk_VDSL”.

At the step where to enter your internet connection type and VLAN ID. Please select connection type as “Dynamic IP”, and VLAN ID.
