I am trying to get a TP-LINK TD-W8980 working with LEDE 17.01.2.
The modem seems to handle the DSL connection fine: link to image of DSL status.
However I can't ping the internet from the router firmware or any clients connected to it.
I think the WAN is not going up. I am using OpenWRT on the router that this router+modem is to replace and when the internet is working the icons in the WAN interface in network interfaces are colored, yet on the W8980 they are gray: link to image of network interfaces. Clicking the connect button does not seem to change anything.
I don't know how to even start to diagnose this problem so I will be grateful for any tips and will provide any information that could help.
I have an ADSL2+ connection with the ISP TPG in Brisbane, Australia.
Here is my /etc/config/network, ifconfig -a, logread and dmesg:
Thanks in advance.
