What type of connection do you have. If it is NBN set up the modem to use IPOE. (ISP does not require a login)

Hi, I was trying out both DSL and VDSL, considering the old modem was connected to the internet and was logged into the Telstra account under the PPPoE settings. Now working with my comment and in VDSL.

I can't see anything wrong with those settings.

I just bought this same modem, did everything for the last 3 hours, found your post and changes still won't connect. Has the green power light, a flashing light next to thatt and then no flashing light under the circle than 2 random green flashing lights. On the set up the dreaded red cross at the internet connection. I am buggered to know what I need to do. It's NBN from, and I am using the wizard for VDSL using telstra as the ISP. For a 300 dollar modem it's really annoying me.

Wow what timing I don't really look at these forums I can tell you from a little more fiddling around that's it takes a good half an hour min to get the connection established. Don't know who's fault that is but very annoying.

Thanks for the reply, wow 30 mins is a long time, the wait is painful as I don't even know if using the wizard has worked or if I need to change anything else. Do you have FTTN? Someone told me you can't use other than telstra modems for fttn. Seems a bit unbelievable but it's telstra. 

Is it VDSL for NBN? I need to confirm as I try it every time and nothing.

Any modem that supports NBN FTTN can be used on a Telstra FTTN connection. The only thing you need the Telstra modem for is the VOIP voice service.

Set it & forget it
