Trying to help someone get an Asus DSL-N66U router working with VDSL2 in NZ. Does anyone have screenshots of a working one? Trying to get it to tag VLAN 10 and do PPPoE is proving hard and I'm a Cisco guy so the settings on the Asus all look foreign to me.

It's PPPoE and customer is provisioned on Chorus WVS. The modem doesn't seem to be tagging vlan 10 and the Asus manual is not complete - it's basically a quick start guide with no explanation of each setting. The manual only talks about tagging a vlan when using the Ethernet WAN port for GPON etc.

Hmm, I just connected to Bigpipe VDSL on Saturday with this modem. Don't have it in front of me but from memory the VLAN setting was enabled on the WAN page, after you enabled the 802.1Q option slightly further down the page.

Got it going in the end, had to turn the modem off for a few minutes then the ISAM port decided to finish provisioning.
