I have a new NBN HCF connection. The TPG supplied TP link AC1600 modem router works fine but I would prefer to connect with the Netgear Nighthawk D7000v2 router that I have.I am unable to connect or obtain an IP address etc. The modem recognises the WAN Ethernet cable. Does anyone have the correct settings to use for this modem router? Do I need to specify a MAC address or Use Default Address? Do I use a VLANID?
On my Netgear D7000v2 it doesn't have a seperate WAN port. So you will also need to go into the WAN settings and change the 'wan using dsl' to 'wan using ethernet' and physically plug into one of the four ports that is labelled on the device for wan.
Our NBN was commissioned today using the TPG provided TPlink archer router. I then endeavoured to re-establish my original Netgear D7000 Nighthawk AC 1900 modem/router. While the AC 1900 does have the wan port, it would not initially operate. I was actually locked out of the router however finally got back in, double checked the settings and also changed the wan setting from 'wan using dsl' to 'wan using ethernet' as detailed by blindstrom. Lots of white indicators. All working great with the netgear.
