Hi all, I've been using an ASUS RT-AC88U for some time with my iiNet ADSL2+ connection, but was never able to use it as a modem - i basically could only get an internet connection on it if I used iiNet's supplied modem/router in bridged mode. I had assumed at the time that it was some issue with my settings, or hardware... or just me. But it was a system that worked so I left it for a couple of years. I've just taken delivery of an NBN FTTC unit (an NTD? or something?), which i was hoping I could finally plug directly into the WAN point of my router... but again it's not detecting the internet... Without changing any of the settings, I plug the NTDinto the WAN port on my iiNet modem (still in bridge) and then from it's LAN to the WAN port on my router, and the system works. Am I missing something here? Do I always need to have a bridge device for this router? Did a search, and found this on the WP forums: https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/2546282 This advice seems to suggest to me that I'm always going to need to use a modem in bridge mode... but I'm not sure if it applies to FTTC? As always, this n00b appreciates any help or suggestions!
