I'm trying to get my MyRepublic modem to work with TPG. My Archer keeps kicking 2 phones and the PC off the WIFi and you need to restart the modem before any will log back in.
I couldn't get it to work as it was so I rooted the modem and I've got a new gui. I think it's running OpenWRT.
Wan Interface VDSL
Wan Type PPP over Ethernet
Vlan ID Mine defaults to 835. TPLink is 2 I've tried both
Username <my user name>@tpg.com.au and tpg-acs@tpg-acs
Password mine and tpg-acs
This is what the log says when i enable PPP.

Phone line not plugged in? I've broken it?
Hi @sscratchie . In the manual provided by iiNet, there is no mention of VLAN ID, unless your OpenWRT supports it. Also, this device might only do ADSL on the RJ11 port and VDSL on the WAN port.
The log is saying "eth4 link is not ready", ie. the WAN port.
"Plug a phone cable from the telephone wall socket into the grey DSL port on your TG-789".
How do you know the wan port is eth4? 0-3 are probably lan ports but 4 could could be either wan or vlan.
I've got the wan port turned off. It's definitely not ready. I think next is ssh in and see if I can work out the network ports.
This guy and a few other places say it runs a customised OpenWRT. I rooted the modem and copied a file called vbnt-l_16.3.7190-2761003-20170907085601-501361d1f0abcd3206e49f0897c4a6cca07a114d.rbi 17MB to it. I think it's just a replacement GUI.
