As the subject says, I need a little assistance getting my DD-WRT router working with my BigPipe 200/200 UFB connection.
I've filled out all the pages exactly the same as my previous router, but it just doesn't want to give me any internets... There are a couple (a lot) more boxes that look like they need to be filled out compared to my old router, but I have no idea what they do. So this is where i need some help if anyone is kind enough :)

Screenshots of my current config on the Setup/Basic and Setup/Networking pages:

I'm running DD-WRT a Netgear N600 WNDR3800 (don't worry, i have an AC1900 WiFi access point :P)

I've seen a number of people discuss VLAN tagging not working correctly on some brands of hardware.

sbiddle: I've seen a number of people discuss VLAN tagging not working correctly on some brands of hardware.

Oh true, I have seen that too, but never found anyone talking about the router I have. But if is the case i may have to get a new router :/

The main reason I want DD-WRT is for the Traffic Meter and historical graphs... Can't find a router that does it as good as DD-WRT, and if it does, they have no VLAN tagging support...

Everything looks correct on the first screen shot, so your router should be running a PPPoE client on its WAN port.

You'll need to tag all packets sent out on its WAN port as VLAN 10 in order to be able to authenticate. Is eth0 the WAN port on your router?

I've only gotten VLAN tagging working on DD-WRT with a WRT54GL. As mentioned by sbiddle there are many devices that support DD-WRT, but the VLAN tagging function may not work 100%.

It could also be worth looking into an alternate firmware for your router, such as Tomato?

Do you have to do the swich configuration yourself on ddwrt? When I was playing with openwrt to get a vlan between the cpu and the ethernet ports it had to be configured on the switch as well.
