How do I set up a Draytek with an ADSL connection on Sky/TalkTalk/BT/Plusnet?

ADSL refers to any router that is connected via the phone line. In most cases, this is a standard BT, Plusnet, TalkTalk or Sky router.

To set up a Draytek with ADSL, you'll first need to get your ADSL credentials from your current provider. This will be in the form of an e-mail address or password and will be needed in order to power your Draytek with the internet.

Most providers will give these to you when asked but Sky will take some persuading because of their terms and conditions advising against using a 3rd party router.

You'll also need to make sure that the ethernet cable is plugged into the correct port (WAN2) as seen below, and your DSL (phone line) cable is plugged into the DSL port on your Draytek:

You would then need to head into the web configuration for the Draytek, which can be accessed via the web address of, unless specified differently by your home or business network, using the default username and password of admin to log in.

Once you have clicked OK, reboot your Draytek and it'll take around 5-10 minutes for your Draytek to grab an IP address and then you'll have internet!

Once connected, we recommend setting up Quality of Service on your Draytek in order to manage your bandwidth efficiently. Our FAQ can guide you through this process.
