Setting up a Netgear XR1000 router.

Level 2

Having an issue setting uo my new Netgear XR1000 router. Just wondering if anyone has got thiers working. A search on here just gives me one hit.

Language that I don't understand, sorry.


Hi @Awatea36 . What type of NBN connection do you have?

And what plan do you have with TPG.

You need to set PPPoE, username and password.


If you have FTTP connection, the following instructions don't apply to you.

If you have HFC connection with Superfast or Ultrafast plan, ditto.

If you have Data Only plan (no VOIP phone), ditto.

Otherwise, you have Bundled NBN/VOIP plan, even if you don't use the phone.

Following are instructions to set VLAN ID=2.


From XR1000 manual:


4. Select Settings > Advanced Settings > VLAN/Bridge Settings.
The VLAN/Bridge Settings page displays.
5. Select the Enable VLAN/Bridge group check box.
The page expands.
6. Select the By VLAN tag group radio button.
The page expands.
7. Click the Add button.
The Add VLAN Rule page displays.
8. Specify the following settings:
• Name. Enter a name for the VLAN tag group. The name can be up to 10 characters.
• VLAN ID. Enter a value from 1 to 4094. Set to 2.
• Priority. Enter a value from 0 to 7. Set to 0.
• Select the check box for a wired LAN port or WiFi port.
- If your device is connected to an Ethernet port on the router, select the LAN port check box that corresponds to the Ethernet port on the router to which the device is connected.
- If your device is connected to your router’s WiFi network, select the WiFi check box that corresponds to the router’s WiFi network to which the device is connected.
You must select at least one LAN port or WiFi port. You can select more than one port.

Select all LAN and Wifi ports.
9. Click the Add button.
The VLAN/Bridge Settings page displays again. The VLAN tag group is added to the table on that page.
10. Click the Apply button.
Your settings are saved.
