Issues with TP-Link Archer VR1600v

Level 3

I have been having issues with my NBN connection, everyday my connection is lost & I have to reboot the  TP-Link Archer VR1600v modem / router to get my connection & home phone working again.


I have done a hard reset of the NBN box & the TPG Archer VR1600v but the issue still persists.


Does anyone know what can be done to rectify this fault?




Hi @kmh002,


I was able to locate your account using your community details and ran initial tests to your connection. Result shows your service is currently connected for 15h 42m and getting a passing speed on the line.


I'd like to confirm if you experience dropouts on the device(s) connected via Wireless Connection / Wi-Fi.


We did an article that will help you improve your wireless connection available here. Easy Steps to Improve Wi-Fi Connection In Your Home


Let me know how it will go.

Good afternoon Shane,


The NBN box is indicating that I have a NBN connection at all times but the connection between the box & the gateway is failing. Although, the gateways indicator lights are all showing green.


When the gateway fails I loose my home phone (no dial tone & when calling-in the message advises that the number you are calling does not exist) & I am unable to connect any device to the Wi-fi network even though there is a strong signal indication (2.4G & 5G).


I must note that last night the gateway was working and didn't fail, keeping in mind that a hard re-set was performed the day before. I'm not sure if I have manually entered all the correct setting within the gateway but it appears to be working at the moment.
