D-Link AC Cobra DSL-5300 FTTN

Answered

HI all. I recently purchased a D-Link Cobra DSL-5300 to replace my Telstra modem. I'm on FTTN. Having some issues to connect the modem to the NBN network. Constantly "Connecting" but no active link. Any suggestions what settings need to be tweaked for this modem to work on the NBN FTTN network?

Thanks everyone. Few settings needed changing:
1. Settings >> Internet>> IPv4 : WAN Access Type = VDSL Router and PVC Connection = Default Connection Internet Connection Type = Dynamic IP (DHCP)
2. Settings >> Internet >> DSL : Enabled SRA (read this on another forum)

There should be an option under the WAN settings that no username and password are required and it should work. Does the connection work when the Telstra modem is connected?

Yes, with Telstra modem connected all is good. With the Cobra the DSL LED does light up and shows a connection but the Internet LED constantly flashes. I know it doesn't have to do with the logon/password as Telstra last night reset my bigpond account password and the Telstra modem still connects even without me updating the password on that modem. Even if I use the DSL connection, would I still need to configure the WAN option?

Yes you would have to configure WAN to use DHCP page 31 of manual. (No user name or password)

Also check IPv6 settings tab that connection type is set to auto detection.
