Setting up PPP Bridged Mode on your Voyager Huawei HG659 Router - VDSL
Posted by Jay Wattage on 04 November 2019 05:06 PM
Before you begin:
  • You'll need your Voyager username ( and password which can be located on the email we had sent to you earlier with the subject "PROV-xxxxx: Broadband Configuration Details"
  • You will need to be connected to the modem's WiFi or (recommended) have a computer with an Ethernet cable plugged into one of the four yellow “LAN” ports on the back of the router.
  • The following steps are for the Voyager retailed Huawei HG659 router. If you have a Huawei HG659 router from another internet service provider, the setup process may be different.
  • We do not guarantee this functionality because the compatibility of the third party router you wish to bridge to the Voyager Huawei router will be a significant factor.
