I am attempting to use an ASUS ZenWiFi XD6 Mesh WiFi 6 system to cover my whole house and would like some help. Any help would be appreciated. I found this link but can not access it: https://community.tpg.com.au/t5/Testing/Setting-up-3rd-party-devices-to-work-with-TPG-internet/m-p/2...

Hi @Snooples . You have to use the TPG-supplied router (Archer VR1600) as it has the RJ11 connection to FTTN. The Archer is put into bridge mode and the Asus operates in standard mode.

Its settings are: PPPoE, username + @tpg.com.au, and password.

There's no user guide for Asus; the app does all configuration.

To put Archer in bridge mode, basically delete the DSL connection with vlan id 2 and add new connection.
