Re: Do I need a username & password for NBN??

Your welcome Dan!

Coughs.....

Curls up into fetal position...

Crys a little.

 

And like always - remember to update the firmware on your devices.

Keep it up mate, I'm loving it. I hope it's not a big ask, but would you be happy for us tag you in a couple of threads (when the occasion calls it for it ofcourse)? 😉

Re: Do I need a username & password for NBN??

Thank you @Dan_C @Logged-Off @petergdownload @pwright !!! I finally got it. I had to not choose Optus from their list of ISP because that made it a PPPoE I had to choose "other" so I could then change it to Dynamic IP and after a long think it connected. So glad I can finally go to bed and not think about modems all night.

Re: Do I need a username & password for NBN??

Hey there, thanks for asking this question as I too am having trouble getting my tplink n600 to connect. I also got info from live chat that I needed to apply my user name and password which didn't work.

This modem is adsl2 and vdsl2. I got it to work with adsl but haven't been able to get it to connect on vdsl. So once I'm home I'll try what's been advised and hopefully will get the same result. 

My saegom is ok but WiFi is crap. Even a tech told me it wasn't a good modem and I had $60 applied to my account to go towards a new modem so hope i can get it to work. It's a shame optus are closely guarding the settings to help customers use their own modems. I understand there's a lot of modems with differing settings but the basics would be nice.

Anyway will post back if I get it to work. Wish me luck. 

Ethan
