VLAN tagging and google nest

Level 1b

I'm on NBN FTTB with a vr1600v modem.  I do not use my bundled phone and have no intention of ever using it.  Can I replace 'turn off' the VLAN tagging so I can use google nest? Or can I replace the modem so that I don't use it? Alternatively can someone suggest what managed switch or what router to purchase to make a google nest work?  Preferably a list of choices.

Welcome to the Community!


Since you are not going to use the phone service that is bundled with your NBN plan, then you have the option to use a third party VDSL modem/router.

Keep in mind that you need to set the VLAN ID to 2 and use the correct PPPoE credentials (TPG Username and Password) for you to get it connected.


Stay safe.
