The THG3000 is a modem router and so will already be handling the PPPoE connection - so using that setting on the RT-AX55 is unnecessary!

 

So to test the connection (it'll be double NAT-ed) all you should need to do is plug the WAN cable from the AX55 into a LAN cable on the THG3000, and then on the AX55 menus > WAN > Internet Connection > WAN connection type:  Automatic IP    *In the LAN settings it may be a good idea to change the local IP range so its different to that of the THG3000.

 

Moving forward, if it's just the WiFi you want from the AX55, you could just use it as an access point...

 

If at some point you do decide to use the AX55 with a modem, there are regulars on here who can help you set it up!

Your Vodafone hub has no modem only, router only or bridge modes.  It is still a router and as such, it is handling the PPPoE side of things.  Your new router is simply another device on your LAN as far as the hub is concerned.

There are a number of ISP router with third party router set-up posts in the forum but essentially,

  • connect new router LAN port to VF hub LAN port with a cable,
  • turn off the VF Hub WiFi - the new router will handle that.  Set the new router’s SSID(s) and WiFi password to whatever you had set in the hub.

No doubt somebody who uses their own router with their VF hub will be along in due course and will be better informed re setting up and successfully operating a router/router set up.

The DHCP, as far as the Asus is concerned, is the one in the Vodafone router.

Try doing a factory reset on the Vodafone router and perhaps try a different cable (making sure it is a least Cat 5e)

Okay, we can't see the image yet, but it sounds like an odd Asus issue that has cropped up elsewhere.

 

So you might want to try the "Static IP" option instead and then set the WAN IP to an address within the range managed by the THG3000, subnet 255.255.255.0, and gateway to the THG3000 ip address.
