We have just had the nbn connected and supplied with an Archer VR1600v v2 modem. When we connect that to our router, none of the devices on our network have internet. Our previous modem (a Netgear DM200) was setup in device (or bridge) mode. I need help to understand what changes I need to make to the modem (or router) to allow our router to share the internet from the new modem.
Thanks for this. So I have a WAN interface called "pppoe_ptm_2_0_d" which uses ID 2. If I change that to 3 (so I can make the bridge connection use 2), will I lose connectivity? I just need to make sure I can make the change without losing the connection.
The VLAN ID should be "2". You wont be able to use VLAN ID 3.
When you make these changes the connection will drop, until your router creates the new PPP connection. If you can't have any downtime, I recommend you leave the setup as it is until you can have down time.
Thanks. In the end, we just connected the nbn box to our router and updated our router configuration. We didn't need their modem/router. As always, less is more. Thanks for your help people.
If there is an existing WAN interface skip step 3.
Note: Make sure that the existing WAN interface is on VDSL.
Or delete the current connection and add a new connection following the instuctions.
