Hi@stevet1010,

 

With FTTB use the DSL port on the VR1600 ( not the WAN port). 

Try plugging in the line cord from the wall socket to the DSL port.

 

Here's some helpful info.

Read our TPG Community article on how to set up your NBN FTTB service. The video is followed by a step-by-step guide. Visit https://link.tpg.com.au/FTTN/B "
