Hi there, I recently connect to NBN HFC. I started using the supplied TP-Link VR1600v modem. Everything seemed to work fine until some issues started with my desktop computer connected to the LAN port of the modem. Every time I restart or wake the desktop PC out of sleep mode, the internet connection doesn't work. Every connection attempt times out. The only way to fix this is to either disable/enable the network adapter, unplug the network cable and use a different LAN port or restarting the modem. This happens on all LAN ports. Please note that wireless connections worked flawlessly. First I thought my desktop PC was the issue, but I did a test with an older modem I had from a previous rental were I used TPG NBN FTTN without problems. It's a Huawei HG659. I replicated the configuration and the modem worked. Since then no issue with connectivity on the desktop PC at all. Always works after reboots and waking from sleep mode. I would simply use the Huawei HG659 but the VoIP doesn't work with this modem. I believe this is a limitation of the Huawei HG659? Since the Huawei HG659 works, I assume the TP-Link VR1600v is the problem. Can you help? Cheers!
