that was yesterday


i notice in the tplink user interface the status for pppoe_ptm_2_0_d  is "DSL Disabled". is this the reason why the modem could not connect to the internet?  how do you enable it?


Hi @jhin, thanks for getting back to us.


You NBN FTTN service uses a VDSL Technology, thus the DSL on the modem settings is disabled.


The case engineer lodged the issue to NBN Co. and further update will be provided as soon as it becomes available. 


For now, please leave everything connected and don't make any changes in the modem settings.

pppoe_ptm_2_0_d is vdsl.  why is it disable?


pppoe_8_35_1_d is the adls setting and it is disconnected, which is correct


when is the technician coming to fix this problem?


We'll have this checked and will have the case engineer contact you to further discuss the matter, @jhin.



Hi @jhin


I understand that one of our Engineers has been in touch yesterday. 


This case is under their handling and will continue to provide you updates as soon as additional information becomes available.
