Welcome to the Freeola internet customer support pages. This guide is designed to help with setting up your router to work with Freeola Full Fibre (FTTP) Broadband. For more internet help topics please visit our main Support Page.

This guide is intended to provide some basic settings for FTTP connections. If you have a VDSL (SoGEA & FTTC) or ADSL service, please see the guides relevant for your service.

This guide is for routers that support WAN connections. Usually this means that they may have a built in VDSL (for FTTC) or ADSL modem but can also connect to an external modem, such as the FTTP ONT (Optical Network Terminator) that the fibre optic cable connects to once in your premises. Routers marketed as 'cable provider' compatible may also work.

A majority of routers have a web based interface that can be accessed by typing in the IP Address of your router into your web browser address bar. This address is typically but can differ depending on the router manufacturer and model, your router manual will be able to give you further information on this.

These are the general connection settings a typical WAN (FTTP) router will require:

  • For single static IP connection the connection should be set to retrieve the WAN IP, DNS and gateway automatically (DHCP).

  • Encapsulation: PPPoE

  • Your Freeola Username and Password

  • If the router has settings for downstream and upstream throughput settings (such as AVM Fritz!Box) these should be set to match the tier of tariff you are on. So, in the case of FTTP 330/50, 330mbps download is "3300000" kbit/s and a 50mbps upload is "50000" kbit/s.
