Diagnostics

Packet Monitor - New feature to capture Vigor3900/2960 packets

Previously we had to use a PC and an available WAN/LAN port to capture Vigor3900/2960 data packets for diagnostic purposes.

However, from firmware version 1.2.1 for Vigor3900/2960, data packets can be captured using Packet Monitor which allows us to capture packets by a simple click on webUI.

This feature is in Diagnostics>>Data Flow Monitor>>Packet Monitor.

To find out more about the feature, please refer to the FAQ.

WAN

How to Specify a WAN MAC Address?

Some of the ISPs will only allow access the Internet using their supplied equipment and they usually do this by locking the MAC address. We can specify the WAN MAC address for the Vigor router to overcome this limitation. In some instances this may not be sufficient and you will need to contact the ISP to update their database to allow your router to be connected. This application note shows you how to change the WAN MAC address in a Vigor3900 router

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is a protocol used for exchanging routing information among the routers (autonomous systems). This document shows how to set up BGP between a Vigor3900 and a Vigor2960 connected by LAN.
