I found the settings in a few places and confirmed via call to business tech support.

 

Confirmed I have the correct user name and password.

 

Business account. Connection is central Auckland, waterfront.

 

 

 

Any help appreciated :)

 

 

 

The supplied HG659 works fine.

DarkShadow:

 

Try DHCP.

 

 

I believe it already is due to the tick for "Use static ..."

 

not being ticked.

 

Unless the setting is hidden elsewhere?

 

 

 

DHCP is enabled on the Lan interface.

In the WAN Service Setup wizard choose "IP over Ethernet" instead of "PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE)".

Personally out of the 2 devices you have i have had much success with the HG659 and had good feedback. Seems to handle fibre bandwidth without any issues. Id suggest the HG659 as your first choice but if the NF4V works thats good, maybe update us with how it goes.

I just signed up with Vodafone fibre but the HG659 modem cannot handle over 32 connections. So I tried the Netcomm NF4V instead, because I know it does handle all our connections. But I could not get the WAN connection to work. Vodafone sent me the settings to use for PPPoE but it would not connect at all. So they told me to try IPoE. That would work for a few minutes then disconnect. Vodafone told me to call Netcomm. Netcomm set up IPoE using the same settings that Vodafone told me except they said to disable IPv6. That did not work either. I will call them again tomorrow and update if I get it going, but it is not looking good. I am surprised that the OP has got IPoE working as it is not working for me. 

 

 

 

N.B. My settings are the same as in the screenshots of the OP.

Vodafone don't use PPPoE so what you were told makes no sense.

I have just been on the phone with tech support at Vodafone and he was trying to connect me using PPPoE. Only when that failed did he try IPoE. I don't know who's right; just saying what happened. 

 

I just checked online and it appears you are correct. Not sure what he was on about.
