Just got the Archer vr1600v modem and trying to set up my old gateway as a bridge - managed to set it in bridge mode and connected to the WAN port of the Archer but have no clue how to actually set it up ... halp!
Welcome to the community!
VoIP feature will not work if Archer vr1600v is on bridge mode. (It needs to be the Authenticating Device/ The device that needs to be connected directly to our TPG server)
Once you visited the modem's page.
- 192.168.1.1 go to 'Quick Setup' Tab
- Select 'Other' hit next.
Follow the settings below:
- Once it's done select 'Next' button
- Let us know how it will go.
Can you try to access the modem/router page using desktop/laptop connected via Ethernet Cable?
Some of the modem/router's feature might not available because it is accessed via wireless (Smartphones)
I've just got my NBN fixed wireless installed today.
I also need to enable bridge mode (acknowledge VOIP won't work), and I also do not have 'quick setup' available on the Archer VR1600v modem.
I wish to use my existing firewall router to perform the PPPoE authentication.
Could you please advise ?
