Hi,
I've been reading what all these clever people are up to and how they solve stuff.  Very impressive. I am having a similar issue.

I wanted a stronger Wireless signal and more functionality and hoped to swap Spark's Huewai fibre broadband model for an ASUS RT-N66U.  This was rcommended for my target setup but over 2 days work I can still not get into Spark fibre despite using all Spark's settings that I can find a place to input. I think I've tried everything.

Does any one know:
1. How to set it up? or
2. Whether this model ASUS RT-66U works (or can't work) on Spark ultra fast fibre.  I note that some people say some ASUS models won't but don't see mention of this model. I bought it online and probably can't return it.  Thanks in advance. Russ

It does. The two settings you need to set are VLAN 10 on the WAN interface, and PPPoE login.

Post some screenshots and we'll take a look.

Found this on the net: "To setup VLAN connection, Select the WAN menu, under the "Special requirements from ISP" section select "Manual" and in the "Internet" subsection, put the VLAN ID in the VID field, it should do the trick"

could be under LAN -> IPTV.

I use an RT-AC66U quite happily on my (Spark) UFB connection

Put Asus Merlin firmware on this if you want more functionality. Its an enhancement of stock firmware.
If you want something completely different, put AdvancedTomato on it.

Hi

I had the Asus RT-AC66U and it would handle the connection well at least that is whats happening. I had ufb 30/10 and it worked great and loved it. When i upgraded to 100/20 it would only last about 4 hours before it freaked out and would shut down. I didnt matter what firmware i had on stock/merlin i would always crap out after about 4 hours. So i built my own router and now only use the asus rt-ac66u as a wireless access point which has been going strong, no random restarts or freak outs for about a month now. I was also told by someone to use MikroTik instead when on UFB.
