NBN installation completed but not working

Level 2
We had a NBN technician coming over yesterday to setup a NBN HFC connection. NBN connection box is correctly connected and displays 4 green lights. The modem (VR1600v) is connected to the NBN box via the ewan port. However only the power, 2.4G, 5G and WAN lights are on and non-flashing. We have received an email from TPG confirming that the connection was complete. I have rebooted the modem multiple times but it didn't help. It almost seems as the modem doesn't configure itself.
I haven't reached out technical services on the phone yet. Any help would be very welcomed.

Kind regards

Hi @rokeby3015 ,


Welcome to TPG Community!


We've created an article for the NBN HFC General Setup.


If you can confirm that the cables are on the right port, then try to press the reset button on the NBN NTD Box (Arris Box) and your TP-Link modem for 30 secs each.


Once done, observe the lights on both devices as the NBN NTD box should show all solid lights. The TP-Link modem will configure itself and shoukd provide internet service after a few minutes.


If the internet light is still not showing on the modem, please get back to us and will run further test with your NBN service.


Kind regards,

@Riezl Apologies for the delayed reply and thanks for following up.
- I have rebooted both the router and the connection box -> no improvement.
- I have also reset both of them using the reset holes as suggested above -> No improvement.

Still 4 solid green lights on NBN connection box and solid lights for Power, WIFIs, and WAN on router.

Will PM you.

Kind regards
