Will a UK router work in Turkey

When I had broadband fitted in my house in Turkey I took a modem from the UK only to find that it was incompatible.

Will a UK router work?

Thanks.

I was told that it was due to different protocols or phone systems or something. Everybody I spoke to (Brits and Turks) confirmed that they wouldn't work.

You've got me thinking now!

Mine works .
I bought a UK belkin wifi router with the higher speed wifi .

Works a treat .
I did have the help of a local brit who knows about TTnet settings .

I would have struggled on my own not being to savvy about such things .

Re: Will a UK router work in Turkey

they do work i have used them in the past you just have to change the VPI settings to 8 and the VCI to 35

UK standard settings are 0 and 38. and other than that the usual password and username for your ttnet will work fine.

Thanks to Hunt 23 and especially Catweazle as I have just packed a "spare" Talk Talk modem in my case for coming over in 3 weeks and you made me do some research

Re: Will a UK router work in Turkey

Sometimes you might find a sticker on the back of the router with the ip address, its this address that you need to log on to the router, it could be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1, these are the most common used although there are others, if you look at the make and model you can usually find the default settings on the internet and if you need to bring the modem back to default there will be a little hole on the back, hold a toothpick in the hole and start the modem, then after 10 seconds or so release the toothpick and it should be at default.

Re: Will a UK router work in Turkey

When you type it in do not use the google or whatever search box. Go to the top line with the large left arrow. Click in and backspace the line clear , then type your ip.
