STEP 7 : Configure the PPPoE dialler for your router.

Sample Maxis Username : (Private IP)

Maxis comes with Private IP in default, if you want to get Public IP, just give the customer service a call and tell them you want to host your CCTV/etc and request a Public IP from them, they will then activate it for you and will call you back a few more days to teach you how to configure. Basically just change the word HOME to PUBLIC. Username : (Public IP).

STEP 8 (Optional ) : Turn off Thomson Wireless Transmission.

Connect your PC to Thomson Router,
Type into your browser,
Navigate to Home Network -> Interfaces
Click on WLAN: ThomsonXXXXX (XXXmbps).

Maxis uses VLAN 621 for Internet, and VLAN 821 / 822 for VoIP (Either one and I think another one will be for future IPTV deployment, expert please help to figure out).

In this modification, Thomson router will be retained for sole VoIP purpose, however full migration of VoIP to Huawei VDSL modem is possible if we have the configuration details for Maxis VoIP. If anyone has it, please share! You may switch off your Thomson router if you don't intend to use the VoIP service.
