Set Up Multi-PVC and Bridge to a LAN Port

This document demonstrates how to configure the Multi-PVC/VLAN on Vigor Router for the triple-play services, in a way that the set-top box (STB) on a specific LAN port can communicate directly to the service provider.

1. Go to WAN >> Multi-PVC/VLAN, click on a channel to configure.

  4. Enable Add VLAN Header and enter the VLAN Tag and Priority as the service provider requires.
  5. Check Enable for Bridge Mode, and select the physical port member to which the STB is going to connect.
