Does anyone know if it's possible to connect to Spark Fibre using an ASUS RT-3200 router ( Can you plug the WAN port into the fibre terminating box or do you need a fibre modem?

Connect the WAN port on the RT-AC3200 to the ONT, and make sure you set the Vlan/VID to 10 for the WAN interface.

Thanks, I read that somewhere else but couldn't figure out how to make it work. I couldn't find a specific setting for VLAN/VID on the WAN page - only on the LAN settings and that didn't seem to have any effect?

I've tried following the instructions above but no luck so far, it has the same configuration screens but no matter how many times I restart either the device or the fibre ONT it wont connect.
