Bigpipe Setup Guide for DrayTek Vigor130 VDSL2/ADSL2/2+ Modem (VDSL)

Important: This modem does not have WiFi. It can’t connect multiple computers to the internet. For that, you need an all-in-one modem/router. If you don’t have the technological know-how to connect this modem to a separate router, we suggest you buy an all-in-one modem router.

To install the modem:

  1. Connect modem to power:
    1. Find the power cord.

    2. Plug one end into the modem.

    3. Plug the other end into a power point.

    4. Check the POWER button is in the ‘on’ position.

      The ‘on’ position is when the button is at the lowest point.

      The ACT and DSL lights should start blinking.

    5. If the lights don’t start blinking, you’ll need to resolve the issue:
      DO NOT proceed until you have resolved this issue.
      1. Check the modem end of the power cable is securely plugged in.
      2. Check the POWER ON/OFF button is in the lower position.
      3. Try plugging it in to a different power point.
      4. Try another modem.
  2. If you have bought this modem second hand, we strongly recommend that you reset it to factory settings before you proceed. For instructions see Resetting the Modem.
  3. Connect modem to the Internet.
    1. You will need a cable with a squarer end (and spring at the top) and the other a wider end (and spring on the side):

    2. Plug the square end into the modem.

    3. Plug the other end into a DSL port.

      Each house typically only has one or two DSL ports coming into the house.

      After a few seconds, the DSL light should be lit solidly.

    4. If the DSL light doesn’t stay lit up, you’ll need to resolve the problem:
      DO NOT proceed to the next step until this issue has been resolved.
      1. Check that you have received the email from Bigpipe, confirming that you have been setup for Bigpipe.
      2. Restart the modem:
        1. Unplug from the power.
        2. Wait for 30 seconds.
        3. Plug the modem in again.
        4. Wait for 5 minutes.
      3. Lodge a support query.
  4. Connect modem to your PC or Laptop:

    You need to plug the modem directly into your PC, with an ethernet cable, because this modem does NOT support wireless connections.

    If you want to connect wirelessly, you will need to either:

    * Use a modem router that has wireless hotspot capability

    * Add in a wireless router.

    1. Find your ethernet cable.
    2. Plug one end into your modem.

    3. Plug the other end into your PC or Laptop.The LAN light should be lit solidly.

    4. If the LAN light is not lit solidly, you will need to resolve the issue.

      DO NOT proceed until you have resolved this issue.
