Got UFB from Voyager connected recently and for the life of me I cannot get it going :/ 

The router I bought is a TP-Link Archer C5. I know it doesn't support VLAN tagging so I requested Voyager to remove the tagging which was completed today (received a confirmation from Voyager). Still no luck. I am just wondering if I am setting up the router right.. 

WAN connection type: PPPoE
Username/password: from a build doc supplied by Voyager
What else am I missing? 





Cheers

Have you tried plugging your computer directly into the ONT and starting a PPPoE client on your computer?

Something like that?:





If so then nothing exciting happens, still no internet. Does it mean that the problem is on the other end?

Re: lights on the ONT box. I have 2 green lights (one for Power, one for Optical) and then I have on orange for LAN1 - is this normal or I should be seeing green as well?

Orange is normal; that means gigabit (green is 100).

Have you confirmed that Voyager is using PPPoE?

Are you plugged into the right port on the ONT? This is important.

Got this message from Voyager:

The settings you'll need in order to get online are found here, thanks:
https://helpdesk.voyager.co.nz/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/32/0/Broadband-Settings-for-Third-Party-Routers

I've had Engineering look into this further also, and they have confirmed they're seeing the start of authentication attempts from what appears to be your TP-Link router, but when our system is sending its offer to allow you to authenticate in response, your router is sending no reply. This points to some type of configuration error on the router (as Chorus have confirmed that the UFB connection is now Untagged of course).
