I've switched from spark fibre to fibre over VDSL through wireless nation as I've moved to an apt building.

I want to take my huawei hg630b router with me instead of buying a new one.

I can't for the life of me get the new connection to work. DSL light on the router and have changed the settings with the limited info from WN but nothing.

WN won't offer support because its not one of their routers.

If anyone can/willing to help I'll provide more info?

the only instructions I got were as follows:

If you are using your own hardware, you will need to set up the device with the following settings: 
PPP Username: 
PPP Password: xxxxxxxxx

You will also need to check that the following settings are correct: 

---ADSL Modem--- 
Encapsulation: PPPoE 
Multiplexing: LLC 
Virtual Circuit VPI = 8, VCI = 81 
DSL Modulation: multimode 

---VDSL Modem--- 
Encapsulation: PPPoE 
Layer 2 Interface: PTM 
DSL Latency: Path0 
Enter 802.1P Priority: -1(or 1)(Optional) 
VLAN ID: -1(or 1)
