WAN interface on router connects to the Internet not your PC. Given VDSL connection the router obviously has a VDSL interface so the Ethernet WAN interface can be ignored. PC connects to a LAN interface.

Hi,

Try the VDSL cable in the DSL port and the PC 1-4 Ethernet ports. Configure the VDSL line in the advised options under Admin/VF-NZhg659.
Edit the VDSL with PPP credentials. Change the IPOE to PPP Over Ethernet.

Cheers

What ever cable comes from where Chorus terminated the dedicated jack point. It uses a RJ11 cable. It will fit in a RJ45 socket.

Something like that.
As long as WAN is solid your good to go, internet light flashing means its configured OK.

Put some blue tack in the WAN port as you CANT use it for VDSL. It is only for Ethernet up link.

DSL port is RJ11. WARNING: Connecting VDSL run to RJ45 Ethernet WAN port will potentially cause damage to the device.

You plug your DSL into the DSL port, not the WAN port.

Plugging DSL into a WAN port can fry the router, they have a tendency to not like 45V DC on Ethernet pins.

Sounds like it needs a reset - find the factory reset option in the interface.
It should set it back to the defaults and go from there...
