Hi @jimmyb,

 

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.

Hi @Bruzza81,

 

Have you tried to follow up instruction above?

If yes, can you post a screen shot of your modem/router page.

 

I will have it checked. Smiley Happy

Please see attached screenshots of both basic and advanced tabs, no quick setup and i cant find anywhere to bridge the modem which is essential in my application

Hi @Bruzza81,

 

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)

Hi @Bruzza81,

Thanks for the additional info. Try to check the drop down of 'Internet Connection Type' in advanced.

 

Please see attached file for reference.

Hello,

 

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 ?

 

Cheers
