Step 2: Check firmware version installed in the router

 

The Vigor2860 is shipped with the standard firmware version. VDSL2 NBN uses Vectoring. Therefore you will need to update the firmware in the router to the vector version.  To do this, download the firmware from the link below:

DrayTek Vigor2860 - download link

Download the file Vigor2860_v3.8.2.3-02v_en.zip

Click here for Instructions on how to install the firmware.

Once the firmware is installed proceed to the next step.

 

 

Step 3: Configure WAN Interface

 

Note:  TPG VDSL2 requires data packets to be tagged with a VLAN ID of 2, so you will need to enter this into the WAN settings. Otherwise you will not be able to access the Internet.

Go to WAN >> General Setup configuration menu and select WAN 1.
