    Hi There,

    I recently purchased a new Asus RT-AX88U modem as my ISP (Vodafone) one kept disconnecting, and I can't seem to get it to connect to the internet. I've followed up with Vodafone but their tech support basically says they only support the Vodafone provided router and can't help me.

    From trawling forums I've deduced Vodafone NZ require VLAN ID Tagging to work with fibre. I have tried to follow the Asus support documentation here using the Vodafone NZ VLAN ID value of 10 recommended here but there are some differences with the new RT-AX88U firmware.

    Unlike the guide - I have to select dual WAN in order to access the Ethernet LAN option for secondary I have to select WAN.

    I don't assume that would be the issue though as Ethernet LAN is still the primary WAN here.

    My WAN settings follow the settings recommended for Vodafone NZ here

    And updated the IPTV internet value to 10:

    Prior to switching over my internet was almost always on an IPV6 ip address, so I have gone into the IPV6 section and enabled this using "passthrough" as the selected setting as per the instructions here.

    I am not sure what else I can do here or what else would be preventing it from connecting - what's weird is the wifi icon in the bottom right says it's connected to the internet but it definately isn't returning any page or a response when I ping google.com in cmd.

    I have attached the complete log(apologies it's quite long) although the key error the log seems to be returning is:

    Hi All, I figured it out, just updating in-case anyone else stumbles upon this in the future from a google search.

    The document here was misleading/wrong. Ignore the while part about mapping Ethernet LAN to LAN Port 1. You can turn Dual WAN off and just map LAN Port Internet to VID 10 and you should be good to go. I imagine the ISP Specific information on PbTech's page here is still relevant.

    Sorry mate, you didn't purchase a modem!, that's a router.
