HG659 Huawei Modem/Router - Unable to use for ADSL2+

Level 1a

The HG659 modem/router i have used to be connected to TPG VDSL service. I have moved to a house without NBN and am trying to connect up to an ADSL2+ service using this same device. However, despite many attempts to enter PPPoE username & password, the HG659 won't set up the ADSL2+ connection. It seems locked into VDSL connection types. 


Is there some way of overcoming this?
