You will need to connect a computer via an Ethernet cable to one of the Yellow LAN ports of the TL-R460

You can remove the device & it's power supply from the NBN cabinet, just take a photo/ write down where all the cables go,
& programme it where your computer is, & once complete put it back

Once the computer is connected to the TL-R460, the router will give the computer an IP address
This should be in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254 (if not see below)
If so you can access the TL-R460 settings by opening your web browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge etc) & typing 192.168.0.1 in the address line at the top left
Then hit Enter

The router will ask you for a username & password
By default these are both  admin
(if not see below)

enter admin for username & password & login

Then select the Quick Setup option

Choose Wan Connection Type : PPPoE

Enter your Username: <as we advised you>

& Password: <as we advised you>

(note these are the username & password for your new NBN connection, they are not for the modem or anything else)

 

Then click Finish / Save & Restart

 

IF YOUR IP ADDRESS RANGE & DEFAULT GATEWAY WERE NOT 192.168.0.1 see below for the next step
This only applies if you had to Factory Reset the Router

 

& you are done, you can move the router back to the NBN cabinet now & connect the Blue WAN port to the next port on the NBN NTD unit

So if your connection was on UNID1, connect the Router via an Ethernet cable from the Blue WAN port to UNID2
If your connection was on UNID2, the new connection may be on UNID1 or UNID3, try both

 

You will know that the router is connected to the internet after swapping the port when the WAN light comes on

 

 

If for some reason you cannot get a connection after all of this, leave it in place for at least 15 mins

this is so we can log the connection attempt to see what has gone wrong

Then you can restore the router to it's previous settings

Quick Start

Choose Dynamic IP address connection mode

Finish/ Save & Reboot

 

 

 

 

How do you check what IP address the Router has given your computer?
In a Windows machine, click on the Networking icon at the bottom right of the screen - looks like a computer monitor with a pitchfork on it
Then click on Open Network & Sharing Center
Click on Change Adaptor Settings
Then find your Local Area Connection & Double click it
Then click on the Details Button

What we are looking for in here is the Default gateway & the IPV4 Address
If the IP v4 address is in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254
The default Gateway will be 192.168.0.1
If the IPv4 address is in the range 10.0.0.2 to 10.0.0.254
the Default gateway will be 10.0.0.1
If the IPv4 address is in the range 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254
the Default gateway will be 192.168.1.1

The default gateway is what you need to type into your web browser to access the router settings

 

Factory resetting the Router

If you are unable to log into the router using the username & password of admin
we need to set it back to factory default

First, from How do you check what IP address the Router has given your computer? record the default gateway of the router

At the back of the Router you will see a small hole next to the power connection, using a toothpick or paperclip, press the microswitch inside & hold it down for 10 seconds
all the lights on the router will flash, then go off & then come back on again depending on the connections

Now you can access the router using 192.168.0.1 & admin

 

IF YOUR IP ADDRESS RANGE & DEFAULT GATEWAY WERE NOT 192.168.0.1 & you had to Factory Reset the Router

Once you have configured the connection we need to return the Local Area network the way it was, this step only applies if you had to Factory Reset the Router

Go to DHCP settings

Depending on what the IPv4 address was, set the start & end IP addresses to suit

as well as the default gateway

If the IPv4 address is in the range 10.0.0.2 to 10.0.0.254
start is 10.0.0.2 end is 10.0.0.254
Default gateway 10.0.0.1

If the IPv4 address is in the range 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254
start is 192.168.1.2 end is 192.168.1.254
Default Gateway 192.168.1.1

If the IP v4 address is in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254
start is 192.168.0.2 end is 192.168.0.254
The default Gateway will be 192.168.0.1

 

Then Save & reboot & then see next step above
