Nighthawk AX8 (model RAX80) and NBN-HFC

Hi, I have purchased a Netgear RAX80 (AX8) Router as I was advised that these routers can negotiate the WAN/Internet port on the back of the HFC NBN box without the need for a modem between both devices. After several attempts I cannot successfully connect to NBN using this method - I am using the  name/password option and still not working. Any ideas?  


Hi @bwa,


Welcome to TPG Community!


There were customers that have tried to use a third party modem/router for the TPG NBN HFC technology.


You may refer to the discussion here in case you are missing something with your setup.


If it's still not working, you may need to contact your modem/router's support for further assistance.
