I'll admit being a bit ** about this but I like to give each device on my network its own dedicated IP address, and found that the TP-Link vr1600 as provided by TPG can only handle giving out 32 IP addresses linked to MAC addresses.
I've got more than 32 devices (quite a few WIFI lights) so would like to go back to my Netgear WNDR3800 router, connecting to the NBNco modem.
I've set the WNDR3800 to use a PPPoE connection, used my TPG Myaccount userid and password, connected the WAN port to the NBNco modem and rebooted everything. But the internet light on the WNDR3800 remains a solid orange (after flashing for a bit), indicating no internet connection available.
I do not have a home phone, not being able to connect one is not an issue.
What am I missing to get my Netgear router to connect to the NBN ?
