NBN FTTN connection gone

SOLVED Go to solution
Level 2

My new FTTN connection has been working well since it was connected about a month ago, until I just returned from 2 weeks on holiday last night and now cannot get the TPG-supplied modem (TP-Link Archer VR1600v) to connect at all. So far I have:

- changed the cable connecting the modem to the phone line,
- made a direct ethernet connection from the modem to my PC (was previously though a separate router),
- factory reset the modem, logged in to the web interface and updated login credentials.

After all this the modem still won't give a light for DSL or Internet and the "line status" in the TP-Link web interface says Disconnected.

Can someone please perform a port reset or investigate the issue for me ASAP as I require my internet to be able to work from home?

Hi @nick_tempest, we can see that the issue has been lodged to NBN Co. and the network has been reconfigured to restore the service.
