TPG broadband over HFC with Google Mesh Wifi

Level 2

Hi, I can see this has been covered in a few other posts - but I am still unsure of a few things. 


Just plain first question - can you set up Google Nest Mesh Wifi relatively easily with a TPG HFC NBN connection? Or does it require some kind of expert knowledge? Or does it just not work at all?


I've tried plugging it into the combined TP-link Archer VR1600v router/modem, switching off the wifi on that router, logging into the router to enable bridging mode, plugging the Nest directly into the black Arris box - which I have seen recommended on some posts - noting works. I cannot even get to a stage in the set up where I can used Google Home to connect to Wi-Fi - it just never connects (screen grab attached). 


Is this a HFC thing? A TPG thing? Any help would be appreciated. I bought this system because it was described as the easy one to set up!
