setting up an NBN wireless connection

Hi, we have just changed over from our old ADSL exetel connection to an NBN Wireless connection. We have finally found some info about configuring our Netcomm NB16WV router for WAN and have put in username and password but nothing happens. There is a WAN light on the front of the router but no connection. I can't find any instructions re this anywhere in the exetel forum or wiki.

What do we have to do?

Isn't that an ADSL/3G modem+router? The network termination device expects a plain router (ie, no built-in modem in front), on which the PPPoE config is done.

{edit: Not so, use the ethernet WAN port provided. PPP over ethernet]

NB16WV does have a WAN port as such there should be no problems in configuring it :)

I will get a support engineer to contact you shortly

Thanks for that Udara, I had just come back to post a correction. Use the WAN ethernet port.
