ASUS DSL-AC68U on ADSL2+ Dropping Out + Slow Speeds

Level 2

 Hi all, I've got an ASUS DSL-AC68U on TPG ADSL2+. When I first got it I was having lots of issues with connection dropouts and speeds and some how got it working...


After a recent (accidental) firmware update it's now as bad as it was before... I have tried downgrading firmware but still no joy. 


I'm wondering if there are VPC(?!!) or PPPoE/ advanced settings that I need to fiddle with to get it working.


Details below:

Firmware version: :
DSL Firmware Version:
DSL Driver Version: FwVer: HwVer:T14.F7_0.2

intI've turned off wifi and plugged in a LAN cable and it's currently running at 0.08 Mbps!!!!! I have tried a different modem - which is also an ASUS DSL-AC68U modem. I think it's a config issue with the modem as opposed to a problem with the line.


Will PM as have to get this fixed !!
