Archer VR1600V modem setup for TPG ADSL2+

Level 1c



I just received Archer VR1600V from Tpg and still waiting for NBN to be activated. My question is can i use Archer VR1600V modem for adsl2+ now while waiting for NBN to be activate.When my NBN is ready and the modem will just automatic switch into NBN from Adsl2+?


When i logon to the modem configuration page. I found under Network-DSL setup page , network username name is " tpg_acs@tpg_acs" not my current ADSl Tpg username. It is normal for NBN setting? Do i need to change it to my current username and password to make internet work? Thanks



Hi @twt510,


Welcome to TPG Community!


You can use the TP Link VR 1600v modem for ADSL2+ service, provided that the settings are properly configured.


You just need to enter your TPG username and password and change the network set up.


Once your NBN service is activated, you can simply hard reset the modem to return it to its default settings for the NBN service to work.


We have located an account using your community details and we'd like to know if the modem is currently connected as the connection shows completely down at the moment.


Let us know should you require any assistance. Thank you.

Thank you for the information. I will try to setup when I have a chance. So when the NBN is ready, all i need to do is just to do is press the reset button located ontop the modem power button and without need to manually put in my TPG username and password?


Hi @twt510


That is correct. The reset will put the modem back to the factory default settings that we have saved. After which, the modem will automatically reconfigure on its own, so you won't have to manually input your TPG login details.
