Nighthawk X6 R8000 and IPTV over network

Hi,

 

I have a single ethernet cable from my router position over to the livingroom. Using the internet providers router I can both watch TV and use for instance Netflix over this wire.

 

But now when connecting the Nighthawk I cannot. Reading up on it shows that my provider uses VLAN with VID 845 or 243. If I set up the Nighthawk to use VLAN, any setting, internet connection drops out. Network works, but no WLAN connection at all. And what could be a second problem is that when setting a port to VLAN with VID 845 or 243 I cannot have internet connected to that wire as well (seems to be VID 10 checking the settings that appear when VLAN/IPTV is enabled).

 

Is it at all possible to connect both internet and IPTV over a single port on the Nighthawk?

 

Thanks for any assistance!

I'm not saying that you can have similar issues however, information included there might help you set up your router.

 

Thanks,
