Hi Shane,

 

Thanks for your prompt reply.

 

My NBN connection type is HFC.  

TP-LINK Archer VR 1600v is my TPG supplied modem/router and I want to replace it with Huawei ax3-ws7200.

I did some research online about NBN modem/router and came across the following web site ( https://help.australiabroadband.com.au/support/solutions/articles/44000687028-australia-broadband-se... ).  It discussed different NBN connections with BYO modems and TPG supplied modems

This is an old article posted on 17-6-2019.  In the paragraph about HFC and FTTC it said " Connections using third-party hardware are not supported ".  

 

Does it mean I can't use my Huawei ax3-ws7200 as a replacement modem/router?

Hi @wing88,

 

 

I'd like to set your expectation that these list of modem/router guide are made for TPG NBN BYO Data Only Plans.

 

In the event that you are with the TPG-NBN plans that comes with VoIP service.  You need to configure the device to be a router only with the VLAN ID 2. If not, then you may use your device as an access point instead.

 

Regards,

Hi Shane,

 

My TPG-NBN plans does come with VoIP service.

 

Still looking forward to the day we discuss the possibility of using the Huawei ax3-ws7200 as the modem/router for TPG NBN BYO Data Only Plans.

@wing88 I think it may work both on your current HFC connection and on BYO plans.

 

Please note that I am not 100% sure but I based it on the information on https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1869476/Huawei-Wifi-Ax3.html?page=9#manual

 

Before you proceed in using this, I would like to advise you that by not using TPG's supplied modem/router your TPG Home Phone service will not work.

 

Just try and connect the WAN Port of the ax3-ws7200 direct to the Uni D1 of the Arris Box or NTD.

Access the modem GUI and input the settings below. Default gateway is normally 192.168.3.1

  • Encapsulation Type: PPPoE
  • Broadband Account: TPG Username
  • Broadband Password: TPG Username Password
  • VLAN 2

If the above does not work, or you wish to use the home phone as well, just connect this router to the TPG provided modem and used the ax3-ws7200 as a regular router.

 

Kind regards,

Joseph D

Hi Joseph,

 

Thanks for your guide.

 

I don't mind stop using the VoIP service by connecting my HUAWEI ax3 pro.

 

Try hooking up the Huawei modem with your instructions but I can't find the VLAN parameter in the modem GUI.

I am stuck now.

 

Just letting you know that I haven't given up yet and will keep trying.

 

Cheers

@wing88 Have you checked https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1869476/Huawei-Wifi-Ax3.html?page=9#manual ? You may have to switch the VLAN on.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Cheers!
