ADSL2+ Ethernet Modem Router TD-8816 is a high performance modem router that provides a full rate of ADSL2+ standard with the superb reliability and a cost-effective solution for home and small business. It is a 2-in-1 device that combines the function of a high-speed DSL modem and a one-Port 10/100Mbps NAT router. Using the TD-8816, you can easily create a secure and high-speed wired network to share files, music, photos, and printers with multiple computers.
As a 2-in-1 device,TD-8816 combines the functions of a high speed DSL modem, and a one-Port 10/100Mbps NAT router. No need to buy a separate router, the TD-8816 is designed to give you a perfect solution to acquiring and sharing high speed Internet access. Then you could save the cost of procurement and the cost of device running.
Access High-Speed Internet
Unlike a dial-up Internet service, a DSL Internet connection is always on so that you do not have to wait to access the web. Supporting the latest ADSL standard, the TD-8816 provides higher performance (up to 24Mbps downstream) and longer reach from the central office of your ISP(Internet Service Provider).
6KV Lightning Protection
This device is equipped with 6KV lightning protection, which exceeds normal routers with 4KV lightning protection, keeping your devices from the worst of Mother Nature's fury.
Advanced Network Security
Support NAT firewall, TD-8816 could prevent potential attacks from across the Internet. For added convenience, it supports access control based on MAC address, IP address, domain name or application so parents and network administrators can establish restricted access policies for children or staff.

Setup was not too tricky for standard BT Broadband, thanks to previous reviewers. Set it to Bridge Mode, selected PPoE, turned DHCP off, changed the VPI to 0 and the VCI to 38, used the user name email@example.com, and used the password 'bt'. Finally changed the IP to 192.168.2.1. (Don't change this until the end, as otherwise you might find it tricky to reconnect to it without using the reset switch). Then plugged it in to the wall and the Asus Router, and off it went.
I've had no problems with it that I'm aware of, and I am getting the same speeds I was with the BT hub. I've now got it connected to a powerline converter, with my router in a more useful room, and there has been no speed drop or other trouble, which perhaps says more about the powerline converters than anything else.
All in all, very pleased!
The modem is more than capable of setting up your account which is perfect for a single computer but if you are running this with side a more expensive wireless router then just set this little fellow in bridge mode and let the router take care of the account settings such as PPPoE, PPTP etc, that way the modem becomes a nice simple little box that allows you to connect to your router's WAN port. Bridge mode is just going into "Interface Setup" and selecting it on the ISP menu
I've heard some reports that these can get hot and overheat, my one runs cool, I assume that's possibly due to the fact it's acting as a simple bridge and not engaging in any firewall and account activities hence raising the heat on it's chips, which is another reason I let my ASUS router take care of that stuff, taking the stress off this, could be wrong though.
Leave this as 192.168.1.1 and set the router up for 192.168.2.1 And your good to go.
If like me, your BT Homehub has died and you didn't like it anyway, then this is the device for you. BT will give you no support for it, but the settings you need are:
- VPC/VCI 0/38.
- PPPoA LLC (or VC-Mux also works).
- turn off all other VC connections for good measure (8 by default).
Out of the box, this device will attempt to detect the appropriate DSL modulation technique to use. This fails here, instead manually configure the modulation technique:
Advanced Settings -> ADSL -> ADSL Mode -> G.DMT.
There is rare occasional flakiness, but this appear to be because BT's signal here has a low SNR margin (varies between 1.1 and 3.0). It seems likely this was the same issue that troubled the BT Home Hub before it. So overall works as well as can be expected.
Configuration UI is better than the DLink 320B ADSL2+ modem. Device is not always responsive to requests, but has a fairly low end CPU so not too surprising. At least with this device the settings are sticky and reset works if you need it.
Works fine in conjunction with Asus RT-N56U. In our house, the TD-8816 is on 192.168.2.1 and serving DHCP addresses to 192.168.2.0/24. The only device connected directly to is the Asus router which is serving it's default DHCP range on 2.4GHz and 5GHz wifi. Sweet!
Simply put, it connects to a phone socket in the wall that has a broadband or highspeed signal coming into the house or office via the phone line. It converts that signal (ADSL) so a separate router can distribute it around the house or the office via direct Ethernet cable connection (fast) or by wifi (fast enough).
So it has a regular BT or US phone cable going to the wall socket, a power cable for, guess what, power, and an Ethernet cable connecting to the separate router or directly to your PC for first time set up.
Having an ADSL modem as a separate entity to a combination modem-router gives you greater flexibility to upgrade your router without having to buy a modem, or vice-versa.
In addition, most high-speed or broadband internet service providers like to lock their customers into 12 - 24 month deals. They use the free supply of an ADSL modem to crowbar the customer into a longer contract. So, if you have your own ADSL modem, and punch in the relevant settings, it gives you the flexibility to sign up to shorter contracts, or not have a contract at all.
Setting the modem up is a matter of talking to it directly via its Ethernet port, from a desktop of laptop computer (bypass the router).
The user interface is a web-page built into the modem and accessed by punching an IP address into your browser.
Your internet service provider's username settings and platform need to be entered by following the set-up prompts. You get your service provider's settings by making a call to their tech support line and, if you get lucky, being talked through a relatively simple process.
Mine worked straight out of the box, and hooked up to a Trendnet wifi router I bring with me on my global travels.Read more ›
