When I look through the Tp-link modem, they each have unique assigned IP addresses (between 192.168.0.101 and 192.168.0.118), however these are not fixed IP addresses within the settings for each device (ie. I think they are dynamic).

Hi, I have just upgraded from ADSL2+ to FTTB. A couple of initial problems: 1. Installer arrived and setup using our existing modem, but was unaware that the existing modem did not support telephone calls. Advised me that I should wait 20mins to 2 hours for the phone service to start, however it never started. 2. Upon contacting TPG, I spend around 2-3 hours on the phone with a technician, before they concluded that I was supplied a faulty modem with non-functional LAN ports. I was advised that I could either use my exisitng modem and have no phone line, or use the faulty TPG modem, have a phone and use wi-fi. However I have many devices cnonected through a wired CAT network. So neither option was desirable. Had to wait 3 days for a replacement modem. 3. Replacement modem arrived today, however this was not a simple process of plug and play. I had to contact tech support and reconfigure the modem and my computers are connected through a TP-Link netowrk switch and the network they were looking for was 192.168.0.1 rather than the default for the modem (192.168.1.1). 4. After reconfiguring the modem, we have now got phone and internet, however our network has lost connectivity (ie. I cannot see all the other computers/devices connected through the switch, I can only see a couple of them). This is VERY FRUSTRATING. Has anyone else had this issue? Can anyone help me please...? Thanks Rich
