Level 3
Hi, I have recently got NBN. I have a netgear nighthawk xr700 and I am unable to get an internet connection from it. I did a heap of research and it should be compatible , but I cannot figure out why it is not finding a connection . I have the Ethernet cable from the nbn box to the wan port on the router , but no luck . Hopefully I am just missing something really obvious !?!? Any help would be appreciated.

Make sure the below details are correct in the Nighthawk


VLAN ID on WAN is set to 2.

On top of the VLAN tagging, here are the other settings you need:
Connection Type = PPPoE
PPPoE Username = TPG username
PPPoE Password = TPG Password


Tell me if that helps, ill try and find some screen shots later if you need help.

Post the router's network settings so we can determine if there is other option that needs to be change.
