Hi @Km ,
Welcome to the community!
Please post a screen shot of the current setup of the Archer vr1600v. On the other hand you once you setup your netgear modem/router.
On the other hand, you may try this.
Under 'Advanced' tab go to 'Network' tab under Network tab go to 'EWAN' page.
You need to disable the VLAN ID (Uncheck) then set the Internet connection type to Dynamic IP and click on 'Save'
Let us know how it will go. Cheers!
Thanks for providing the screenshots.

Please send me a PM with your TPG username or customer ID number. Click here on how to send a PM.
We'd like to look into it and check the type of NBN technology you have.
Thanks for sending us a PM with your username and additional screenshots. However, making adjustments on the DSL settings isn't the right way to go. It should be the EWAN settings that you need to tweak as explained by Shane previously. Correct me if I'm wrong, but in your first post, you mentioned that you connected the devices LAN to LAN. Can you try and use the WAN port of the TP-Link instead going to a LAN port of the Netgear?
I agree chaninging the dsl setting should help, but ath tis what I was being told to fo through various private messages. It does seem to me that the archer does not want to be an access point and keeps looking for an internet connection
I have changed the cable to the WAN and it made no difference except now i couldn't log onto it through my normal home network anymore.
On any other router, we just disable DHCP and set the access point IP to something different to the main modem/router and connect LAN to LAN. Why isnt it that simple wit htis modem?
Please advise the DSL and EwAN settings to make this an access point
If you will use Netgear LAN to VR1600 WAN.
You should enable the DHCP of the VR1600
Now the easiest way to set this up is to use Netgear LAN to VR1600 LAN and use the settings below
Go to Advace > Network > LAN Settigns
Change the IP address to something under the subnet of your netgear.
I suggest 192.168.0.254 and then disable the DHCP
