Help: TPG NBN Cable + Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 (D7000)

Highlighted

I have a TPG NBN Cable 50 connection to my house and I wish to use my existing Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 router as it has better wifi range than the supplied modem.

 

I've followed instructions on this forum with no luck. 

 

Could someone provide me with the settings/connections I need to get this router to work?

 

Cheers

Scott

Hi

 

We do not support 3rd party modems but the important settings are to set the WAN interface on your Netgear to VLAN 2.

Then its just a matter of setting up the PPPoE dialer with your TPG Username and password.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Regards,

Peter

Ok thank you. If you don't support 3rd party modems then how will the settings you've recommended make a difference?
